Welcome Allie Gower, Guest Designer

Hello from Minnesota, my name is Allie Gower, of Well Trained Paper, and I had the pleasure of meeting Team Vance at CHA-Winter 2012. I was over the moon when Bunny asked me if I would like to guest design. Would I?!? I even got to pick the stamp set. I have to say, Mr. & Mrs. Mustache really said "come have a party with me." So I set out with some Grammy Party Plans! I stamped and embossed a pile of mustaches. I used a rainbow of colors. After stamping the image with embossing ink, I sprinkled the colors with a small palette knife. I poured the excess onto a sheet of scratch paper. I used the left over powder to do another set of mustaches, for my party tubes. The tiny face is stamped on a small circle, cut with Spellbinders Paper Arts Dies. The top hats are just stamped with black ink and cut out.  All pieces are matted on Momenta papers, and then matted on different die cut shapes. This was an easy and fun project, and the kids were sure pleased with the results. Weren't the Grammy's great this year?
Thanks for looking today, and thank you, thank you to Bunny and Jillian! Supplies Used: Stamps - A Jillian Vance Design Tubes - SRM Papers - Momenta Dies - Spellbinders Paper Arts Ink and Embossing Powder - Close to My Heart Cupcakes - Cub Bakery (thanks, son!)
