On another note, my friend Kristina (not my soon to be Sister in Law) came over last night and stamped with me. She got here at 6:30 and left about 10:00. We had so much fun!! I made three cards for VSN next weekend. One of them is a pre-challenge card, so I'll post it here. The rest you will have to wait for. :o)
Here is one of my creations, though. The challenge, linked HERE was for Christmas in August -- to create a Christmas card using fall colors. I love using non-traditional colors for Christmas cards, but I usually gravitate to bright colors....imagine that...me, using BRIGHT COLORS!
Stamp Sets: Holiday Wishes, Swirly wheel
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Ink: Versamark, Pumpkin Pie, Bearly Banana
Embelisments: Olive and Chocolate ribbon, Stickles,
The tree is embossed with gold detail EP, star is cut out and mounted on dimesionals. The jumbo eyelets added just the right touch, I think.
The second project is a glass bottle that I decorated for Shannon's baby shower. The people had to guess how many Skittles are in the bottle. I decorated the bottle with this awesome circle designer paper, and then added the big flowers.
Stamp Sets - Big Blossom, Pocket full of Poseys, Very Punny
Cardstock - Creamy Caramel, Whisper White, Tempting Terqouise
Technique: Faux shaving cream, Embossing (the lid is embossed with red glittery EP)
Tools: Paper Crimper, Circle Scallop Punch, Circle Punch
Have I mentioned lately that I loooove stamping???
