Crafting like crazy!

I have been glued to my craft table almost all weekend. I created four cards and I am halfway through three small scrapbooks, which I'll share in the next few days.

There's a fan club challenge on SCS called More is More. I haven't participated in the fan club challenges yet. They are one of the benefits of being in the fan club. So what you do is make a simple card and then the same card with MORE! I used Jen's sketch for these cards. Both use the Always stamp set and Baja Blue, Basic Black, Whisper White, and Pirouette Pink. The first one is very simple as you can see.

The next card is stepped up a notch. I used glossy paper, rubbing alcohol and reinkers for a background. And I added pink grograin ribbon. I think my bird is angled too far forward though.

You'll probably be seeing a lot of this set and color palette from me this month. I am participating in a 2009 Stampin' Up! Catalog Release Open House and I am supplying a display. The assignment was to pick a set and use it for an entire display board. I recruited my dear friend Susan to help me with that and she suggested that we coordinate using a few colors to make it more pleasing to the eye. I totally agree! So we are using Baja Blue, Basic Black, Whisper White, Rose Red, and Pirouette Pink.

  1. You really stepped that card up. You know I never use techniques and your card has inspired me to try a technique this week. Fantastic card!
