Just Add Ink #374 - Inspiration - Text ya later belated birthday

Welcome back to another Just Add Ink challenge. This week Jan has suggested this inspiration challenge for us.

You can use anything in the picture to spark your creativity. I honed in on the phone. I have been itching to ink up my newly acquired Text Ya Later stamp set and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.

If you have a teenage girl in your life you are likely to know that Rose Gold phones are just the bomb at the moment. (And yes I totally realise that me just saying 'the bomb' will earn me an eye roll and sad shake of the head from Miss Teen!). In the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue due for release on September 1 there is a beautiful new colour of foil sheets called Champagne. It has a rose gold look to it and I figured why not go all out and literal for this challenge. And so the most treasured rose gold phone was created. The window is cut using the Layering Squares Framelits. I created a rectangle by only partially cutting the second time through the Big Shot.

I added a piece of window sheet behind the opening before adhering the message screen behind that. A few punched circles for the buttons completed the design. I love this stamp set. It is a fun way to create a card for all ages. This card is for a friend who, although I messaged her on her birthday, I won't be seeing until a few weeks after so thought this would be a fun card for her.

Make sure you check out how the rest of the design team interpreted this picture and why not enter yourself? We love seeing your creations each week.
