This is a card that we made at my August Cards Class. I love how classic the color combination is. We used Cameo Coral and Basic Black. The stamp set is called Great Friend (page 107 of the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog), we also used the Curly Label Punch (pg 186,187), the Lots of Tags Sizzix Dies (pg 197, this is a SU! exclusive die set!), and Black Gingham Ribbon (pg 183). Isn't it gorgeous?
I know, it's rainy and drizzling outside and I should probably be disappointed in the weather today. So, why am I so happy? I look at this as a great excuse to stamp and scrapbook all day! Woo-Hoo! I've got my iPod on and I'm singing and working on all these little projects that pile up in my mind ;) Yes, I said in my mind! I'm one of those people that has to work out most of the details for my projects in my mind. That way, when I sit down to actually work, I have a lot of the project already planned out. Sometimes people ask me how I get stuff done so fast and that's how I do it. Don't get me wrong, there are also times when I don't get much of anything done and I'm ok with that! Like last night, for example. I got together with some of my Stampin' Up! buddies for some stamping time (ok, yes, we did have dinner and snacks too!). The biggest thing I got done last night was mounting 3 stamp sets. We had a great time sharing ideas though and I came home wanting to: a) clean my stamp room b) finish class kits and c) make some SHIMMER MIST! The last one is thanks to my friend Jen, who literally hit me over the head with the idea. Seriously, she threw a bottle at me and hit me on the head! Intentionally! LOL!
Next time you come to a class, ask me to show you these cool new products that Stampin' Up! is carrying. They're Shimmer Paints that come in 3 different colors; White, Champagne and Gold. Each one runs a measly $5.95 plus s/h and taxes. When mixed with alcohol you can make your very own shimmer sprays. They are SO cool. (Just ask Jen! I hope her husband and daughter are quick enough to escape because Jen is shimmering everything in sight!) Unfortunately, I haven't been able to take a picture yet that does this product justice. I did use it as a paint on one of my Christmas Cards (The Bashful Blue and Elegant Eggplant one with the snowflakes), but I'm not sure how well it shows up in the scan.
Well, I'm off to stamp (and shimmer) something. I hope you make time on this dreary day to do something that makes you as happy! I'll be announcing the Blog Candy winner tomorrow so you might want to go back and make sure you answer all of my questions from the last couple of weeks. See you tomorrow!
