Happy Monday Peeps!!!
Today I am sharing a card I made using this week's challenge on the Dynamic Duos Blog.
The colors this week are Poppy Parade and Basic Black, with a dessert option of using punches.
I had a sweet Etsy customer ask for some Sympathy cards, so I decide to use this challenge to make one of them. As you will recall I have been working on my Clean & Simple card making skills.
I think this qualifies, I did struggle a bit with this one, thinking it needed "something", finally I just decided to leave it as is.
I used the Stamping Up "Stippled Blossoms" stamp set for this beautiful rose. I achieved the two colors of red by stamping off the base part of the rose once then added the shaded part of the rose with full strength color.
The sentiment on here comes from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set and is stamped with black stazon ink. I used my 1-1/4 inch circle punch to punch out the sentiment and the black mat is made with the 1-3/8 inch circle punch.
There is a couple of sneak peeks on here from the new Stampin Up Holiday Catalog, I used the new Window Frames Framelit Dies for the white base the flower is mounted on. I embossed this piece with the Woodgrain EF.
I was surfing the web over the weekend looking at some of the pics and highlights people had posted about the SU convention and I happened upon this picture of one of the many, many display boards:
See the card I put a circle around?
I believe that is one of my cards!
Silly I know but it made my day!
I know thousands and thousands of cards are made and sent to SU, I think this one was made it's way to them from some of my Control Freaks swaps, but I still felt a bit proud!
Anyway, no big deal I know to anyone but ME!!! So forgive me!! :)
That's all for today, thanks for stopping by and
