Another day of rain! Guess I’ll just have to stamp the day away!

Here’s a peak at a couple of cards for next weeks Kismet class!

It felt sooo good to be back at my desk yesterday.  I took it slow and took breaks in between stamping.  By the end of the day Peter commented on how much better I looked.  (Not that I look good, but, I looked a whole lot happier!)  When I first came down, I felt like I didn’t know where to start.  By the end of the evening, I didn’t know when to stop!  I was stamping fast and furiously!

The first card was one I started before the big “B” hit me.  It turned out to be a romantic shabby chic card.  I used the new Best of Love stamp set with accents from our Artisan kit.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The base of the card is very vanilla, followed up with baja breeze and a patterned paper from the Tea for Two DSP pack.  This could be used as a wedding card or perfect for an anniversary card.  I love that lace from the Artisan kit, you just need a little bit to add a lot of punch!

Next up I decided to use the Dapper Dad stamp set.  Which I purchased, but, unfortunately have not played with up until this point.  Well, yesterday solved that, I made 3 different cards for the men in our lives.  I wanted to stay in the mode of using different materials when designing.  I wanted to add fabric and incorporate one of our bottle caps.  I was not sure which designer series paper to use so I opened up the DSP that came with our This and That new product line.

Listen, if you have not paid attention to that new line, take a second look.  The paper is fabulous!  It is layered with so many rich colors,  so many beautiful layers of design.  This may just be my new favorite paper!

Tired of me talking?  Here’s the card:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This picture, like so many I take, does not do justice to this paper!  I added a little scrap of fabric which matched perfectly with the dsp.  You’ll have to come to class next week and make one of these cards!

Happy Stamping!
