ICS Blog Hop Guys Night Out

Welcome! It's ICS blog hop time! Our theme is ‪Guys Night Out!  I thought this theme would be a great time to break out the Marquee Messages new Stampin' Up! set I received at OnStage Live in Salt Lake City in April.

The card base is the new Stampin' Up! in color called Dapper Denim and then there's a layer of Tempting Turquoise.  The Whisper White layer was first stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Emerald Envy, Tempting Turquoise, and Bermuda Bay.  This layer was then ran through the Big Shot using the Brick Wall embossing folder.  Tip - the front side was facing the side with the logos on the embossing folder.  The all new Marquee Messages frame was then stamped in Memento Black ink on 3 cardstocks - Emerald Envy, Tempting Turquoise, and Bermuda Bay in order to piece the image together.  I stamped the "It's Your" sentiment on the Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  The "Birthday" sentiment was stamped on the Bermuda Bay cardstock.  The Tempting Turquoise layer was used as the base.  I then added snail to the Bermuda Bay Birthday layer that was cut out with snips.  The image was finished with the arrow on Emerald Envy popped with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Thanks for stopping by my post in the ICS blog hop!  The next stop in your hop is the fantastic, Deb!
