I saw Monika Davis Use the Pop N Cuts Base as a card base alone and I thought "BRILLIANT" and I had to use the card for my workshop. I changed up the DSP and colors to match but I thought it was a great idea. The base card is Pool Party with Midnight Muse accent around the Comfort Cafe DSP. I was telling someone that I punched a bunch of flowers and center circles and different colors to "audition" them to see what colors worked best and they looked at me like it was a new concept to them. I am often really bad with coming up with colors on my own but when I see it put together right, I know what I love. So when I do have to come up with colors for something I just have to try different combinations until something feels more right than another that I try. I hope that makes sense. It was a really easy make and take and the DSP is cut 4x4 so you can get 9 pieces out of a 12x12 sheet which is great. It shows use of lots of punches and the new A Round Array stamp use which I thought was really cute. Lots of dimensionals to pop the flower parts makes it more interesting. Enjoy.

This was a set I got a long time ago for such an occasion from PTI. I embossed Real Red CS with the start EF from CB then mounted the Brocade Blue CS (retired SU) stamped with versamark and heat embossed with white EP with dimensionals. Finally a layer of Whisper White CS and then the game controller heat embossed with black EP cut out and mounted with dimensionals again.
