Work of Art

Hey stampers! So, I got to go to the Stampin' Up Catalog Premier party in Alexandria on Monday night and they gave away a brand new stamp set to all attendees. I was so excited because it was one that they used a lot during the demonstrations that night and it was definitely on my wish list. I got a few minutes this morning to try it out and this is what I made.

Stamps: Work of Art
Paper: Crumb Cake, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Strawberry Slush, Crumb Cake
Accessories: rhinestone

It's super simple and was very quick to make, but I like the way it turned out. I stamps the large brushstroke with Rich Razzleberry and then stamped two more times below it without inking up the stamp again. Cool effect, isn't it? I have to give credit to my friend, Amanda, for suggesting stamping off.

I'm noticing that my picture is a little crooked and isn't the best, but I wanted to get this posted quickly before I eat my lunch and head out in the rain to run errands. Have a great day! Pin It

FabFri40: Mosaic Madness

Hello there! One of my New Year's (Stamping) Resolutions was to post more often than every two weeks for the Fab Friday challenge. It doesn't look like I'm doing too well with that one. I promise that I will do better this summer when I (hopefully) have a little more free time.

It is Friday once again and we have a color combination for our challenge at Fab Friday this time. Check it out...

I will admit that I really struggled with these colors. I like them all individually, but I drew a blank on how to use them together. (And I totally messed up and used Basic Gray instead of Smoky Slate- oops!) This is what I came up with...

This is a CASE of my own card that I made back in June. I remembered making the original card when the challenge was to use all five in colors, and I thought it would work well with these colors as well.

Please come and play along with us. We love to see the cards that everyone shares with us!

Hello there! It's going to be a short post because it is party day at my kids' school and I am in charge of both of their parties- yikes! Busy time, but come 3:00, spring break begins and I can finally relax (as much as I can with a five-year-old and an eight-year-old anyway)!

It is Friday and time for a new challenge at Fab Friday! We have a sketch this time. And if you are like me and have tons of scraps, this is a great sketch for actually using them.
