I received a new batch of Stampin' Up! DSP today and a new stamp set... and it was JUST in time for today's MOJO sketch!!  If you have never participated in a MOJO sketch... then TODAY might be the day you decide to partake in some of the FUN!
MOJO149 gives us a choice of either a square card or a round card.  I started out doing the round card, but juuust didn't like the way it was turning out.  Sometimes I feel that I have more possibilities doing square or rectangle shaped cards.. so, I scrap'd the round card attempt and ended up with THIS:

The card base is Concord Crush, In-Color, and the DSP is called Lap of Luxury.  Every single piece of this paper is breath-taking!  Did you notice the white 1/2 pearls in the corner!  These have become my favorite new embellishments!!  Cute huh?  I was searching through my white card stock supply, and found this once piece of Whisper White that was already punched.  So, I thought I would use it and add something inside the punched hole.  My new stamp set, Style Beautiful, was BEGGING to be inked... so, I filled it with Whisper White Craft ink, and set it with the heat gun.  I think the image just POPS out from the Basic Black!  I tied a small piece of Pretty in Pink Taffetta ribbon and popped the entire element up on dimensionals.

Here's a close up of the main focal point:

Since I used a dark color (Concord Crush) for the base of the card, I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock to the inside. 

I was very happy with the way it turned out... Except, I DID notice, when I was posting this, that I missed adding the three stripes in the background. 

THIS card will be one of the cards that we will be making in class on Saturday, August 7.   If YOU are in the West Chester, Pennsylvania area and would like to come to my stamping class, please DO contact me.  Seating IS limited, so call or email NOW and save YOUR seat... before someone else does!

Thanks for checking out my blog.. Your visit means the WORLD to me!

Stamp Class

Last week, I went to a Stamp Class held by one of my good friends and downline, Nance.  It was GREAT sitting on the opposite side of the table.. not teaching, and just stamping!!  Actually.. it was rather NICE!  Although I must say, it did feel "different" being the student for a change, and not the teacher.  Nance did a GREAT job, as usual.  Here are the four cards that we stamped!

  • Here is card #1 using Punched Posies.. Beautiful, isn't it?

and... the inside:

Here is card #2
