Just received my first shipment of new stuff from Stampin' Up!! I was so excited to cut into new rubbah today and get started on a new project - I used the Seasonal Whimsy set first for today's SCS challenge. There is ALOT of embossing powder on this card!! The main image is stamped in chocolate chip craft ink and embossed with clear EP, the background of it is watercolored with WW crayons. The French Flair image is also stamped in pigment inks and completely embossed with clear EP. It does give it a funky look!
Someone recently used a paper crimper on their project - I forgot about mine... buried under a whole bunch of other "must haves" that I used for awhile then put away. I crimped the sentiment on this one, then attached it with eyelets, letting it bridge up in the middle. The strip of apricot at the bottom is also crimped.
The western card is the first card I've made in ages just to make... I didn't have a challenge, theme or design call in mind when making it.... it was kinda refreshing! I designed the entire card around the piece of designer paper from Linen Prints paper pack - I was going to use it on the first card but it just didn't go together. I do like it on this card though! The lasso was made with a linen string and just wrapped around the card and adhered with mini glue dots.
Which one do you like? Leave me a comment and let me know.
I'm going away for a few days and will be giving away the BLOG CANDY when I return - so pass along the word to your friends to stop by and leave a comment (on that post) about why they like to stamp and make cards.
