I Finally Stamped!!!
Sorry for my absence these past few days but can you believe that I hadn't stamped in a week??? It felt so great to be able to sit down at my craft table and create some cards! I actually got three finished this evening but I am only going to share this one with you! :)
My new Stampin' Up! goodies came on Monday and I couldn't wait to play with them! I didn't put in a huge order so I didn't get all of the new stamp sets that I wanted. I decided to get the paper I wanted first, and then see what money I had left! Lucky for me, I will be putting another order in shortly. Anyway, I used my new "Central Park" set on this card. I absolutely love this set! It is so elegant, yet funky! I decided to pair it with my new Urban Oasis dsp. I decided to go with a Basic Black and Kraft color scheme with some Baha Breeze and Whisper White accents. I embossed the flowery stem with black embossing powder on a piece of Kraft card stock. I also added some Baja Breeze ribbon and punched out a sentiment from the retired hostess set called "Best Yet".
For this card I decided to play in the Great Swap Girls challenge that was posted yesterday. It was going great until I realized that I used too many neutrals. Bummer! Anyway, I guess I still attempted it so that counts...right??? Haha! I also wanted to use Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge from last week since it was still posted on my bulletin board. The sketch was amazing! I moved the circle around a little but decided it was not going to hurt me! :D
Well, that's it for tonight! We got quite a bit of snow this evening so I am hoping for a snow day tomrrow...fingers crossed! I highly doubt we will but a girl can always hope! Haha! Make sure you stop by tomorrow evening to find out who won my blog candy!
