Lollipop Fun

Yes, that is a lollipop on my card. Stampin' Celebration #26 had a super fun photo for inspiration and I just had to play along. It went right along with Just Add Ink's challenge #41 calling for a birthday card. I used Stampin' 411's sketch #175. I was so into that lollipop that I ended up missing a few elements from the sketch but I'll share anyways.

I inked my Texture Plates (item #114531) with each colour to get my design on all the cardstock. Inking up your texture plate before running it through the Big Shot (item #113439)always gives it added depth! My sentiment is from Word Play (item #120308-w #1206510c)and I just used some Stampin' Write Markers to change up the colours.

I punched out a few 5 Petal Flowers (item #119880) in Melon Mambo and one in Old Olive for leaves and punched a hole in the center to put the lollipop through. Then I punched a hole in the Top Note and put that sucker right in there . I used a lot of dimensionals to make the Top Note stand off in order to give the stick of the lollipop room behind it.

These may not be my go to colours but every time I play with them I end up loving the fun card I produce. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a fun day!



How fun! I love that you used a real lollipop!! Great color choices too. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Stampin' Celebration. :-)
