November Stamp Club Projects

These were the cards that my stamp club made in November. I focused all the cards on the Cold & Cuddly set from the Holiday Mini. I also predesigned my cards in MDS, so that I had something to go by.

The first one is a monochromatic card using Bermuda Bay card stock, DSP, and ink.

The second card I chose to round the corners on the right hand side.

The third card is my favorite - probably the DSP....that is gorgeous paper!
Thanks for stopping by my blog when you had a chance this past year! Looking forward to a new and wonderful 2010! Hope you continue to stop by in 2010 as well!!

Happy New Year!!

UDI Inspiration Challenge #70

This is my long ago post that I haven't been able to post. Shortly after my last post, my laptop essentially died. Well, it is back - I use that term lightly though. As I type - my screen is flickering and I'm worried it will shut down again. I seriously need to get it checked out, but it needs to be on when I take it in because once it's may not come back on.

Anyway - back to this post. The picture below was given to us to use as our inspiration. To see the Inpsiration Challenges (among others, such as Sketch Challenges) - go check out the UDI Blog for more ideas from other talented SU! demos.

Things to Note:
-- I went with the brown (sepia look) and the daisies for my inspiration
-- To 'color' the embossed flowers, I used Shimmer Paint

I made this for a friend/co-worker whose FIL passed away. I was really pleased with how it turned out. The flowers definitely 'shimmer'. This was the first time I've used the Shimmer Paints and will definitely use them more!!

Hopefully I'll have more to post and that my laptop will continue to work and I'll be able to get things posted.

Wishing everyone a wonderful and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
