Good Morning!

Still stamping and cutting card stock….

I thought before I start any new cards I had better cut all the DSP I need for the cards in my up coming classes.  I used to hoard my DSP.  I  didn’t want to use it in classes because….what if I run out?  Hello, just buy some more…dahhhhh!  Now I enjoy using it and I use every last strip!  I don’t worry as much about running out.  If I am using a particular pack of DSP, guess what….all the papers coordinate with each other.  So, if I run out  of one I can most often replace it with a paper with similar colors and patterns.  Another news flash for me….Stampin’ UP! makes the packages this way just for that reason.  Boy they are some smart cookies!

That’s a lot of chatter I know, but, it’s late, (or early depending on how you look at it!).  Any way, here is the card that I am doing for my Kismet class.  Another Halloween card but this time I am using some of that cool grey satin stripped ribbon from the Holiday catalog.

The stamp set I used is from the 2012-2013 Catalog on bottom of page 28, Wicked Cool.  Isn’t that ribbon cool?  It really makes great bows.  I used every little piece of DSP.  The diagonal strip is the left over from cutting the polka dot DSP.  I added a little more interest with black card stock cut with our Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch.  I find myself using that punch a lot.  I like that you can tuck it under a layer of card stock and just have the little scallops showing for just a little added design element.  I used some of our pearls on the candle stick and bedazzled the spider webs with our rhinestones.  Pretty fancy right?

Well it’s now 3:08am, guess I should call it a night.  A couple of hours of sleep and then I will be back down here to start designing!  Tomorrow I will show you a card I had been dreaming of and finally finished tonight.

Until later….Happy Stamping!
