Wedding Card….

Hi Stampers,

As I’ve just completed an Invitation Package & as part of my “Thank You” to my Customers, I design a Congratulations card.  I usually make the cards in the colours of their invitations and very similar to their designs, etc. 
I knew I wanted to use Stampin’ Up!’s “Always” Stamp Set, and am very happy with the outcome.

Card Stock – Chocolate Chip
Punches – 1 1/4″ Circle

To emboss this card –
1.    Rub Stampin’ Buddy over cardstock

Tip – There is no need to purchase a heap of embossing powders in all colours, Stampin’ Up’s Versamark & their great embossing powders of Gold, Silver, Black, White & Clear is all you will ever require!

Challenge – TSSC101

Hello Stampers,
I have finally manged to get home – for a couple of hours – chasing up stuff, etc & then on my way again!
I did this challenge late last night when it come through.  Not exacly what I had planed but still I am happy with it – maybe????
Card Sample
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Always
Cardstock – Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red
DSP – Walk in the Park – Retired
Ink – Pink Pirouette, Going Gray
Punches – 1 3/8″ Circle, 1 1/4″ Circle, 1/2″ Circle
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Dimensionals, Pretties Kit

All in all this turned out to be a very easy 5 minute card, ie once I knew what colours I was going to use.  I have just realised that the DSP is not current, although it can always be replaced with one of the lovely current Designer Papers. 

To lift the card a little, I added the small gray flower inside the “Always”.
  It looked a little dull prior to that & I didn’t want to used Dazzling Diamonds.  I seem to be overloading on that stuff at the moment!

I have tried to vere away from the traditional colours of Valentine – to a certain extent I have! 
Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Challenge #1

Good Morning All,
I have just completed my first Challenge – yahooooooooooo!.
I only hope I did it right, as usual I tend to confuse myself.  I  just like to grab a colour cardstock & then work on the other colours that will match, but I think it come up ok.  It could be my one & only, who knows!

I do know that I wanted to purposely stay away from the traditional colours of Red, Black & White!
