March 16, 2011

I can't believe I went almost 2 weeks without a new post! Eek! I've been busy with stamping, just not posting it! A friend /fellow SU! demonstrator and I are preparing for an event this Saturday - attendees will be making a project for every month! Of course, I've been busy with other things, too!

Well, I am excited about this card! I sat down last evening to make a card with the Bliss set from the SAB catalog because I just got it Monday. I mainly wanted to use the "filigree" or whatever one might call that. This is what I stamped out! The picture doesn't quite capture thefeel of it with the vellum, but you get the idea. I'm proud of myself for turning out something so chic! :) Even my husband was impressed with this one. Then I woke this morning to find that the Stamping Royalty challenge is to use texture/embossing folders!

Stamp Sets: Bliss, Close as a Memory
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, StazOn Black
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, Basic Black, Vellum

And this is another card, I actually did it last week but never had time to post. (Trust me: I don't need a challenge to encourage me to use embossing folders! LOL I'm beginning to wonder what I ever did without them!!) I had decided I wanted to use this color combination and came up with this!
