I have a busy day cleaning & prepping for my Christmas in October Stamp Camp tonight, so I have only a couple cards to show you--tomorrow I'll have more! I have been stuck on using my BG Stella Ruby DP. I have several of these 6x6 Basic Grey pads, and I just find myself hoarding it! So I am forcing myself to use these beauties.
I knew Sunday that my dear friend's mom was dying....she was in a coma, it was just a matter of time, and last night she went home to be with the Lord. I had made a card on Sunday evening after I found out my sweet SCS friend Anne Ryan was the Featured Stamper! I can't show you her card I CASE'd because there is something wrong with the SCS gallery link (maybe I can link it later), but I didn't want to post this until I actually needed it. I used a piece of textured cardstock that Anne RAK'd me when she realized I didn't have the Swiss Dots CB folder-wasn't that sweet of her? I wish I had made this card larger, as the panels of the Stella Ruby are hard to see on this size, but they are striking:
I used a sentiment from Papertrey's Mixed Messages and the main image is Fresh Cuts. I sponged color on the image and accented some of the flowers with a Ruby Red marker. There is a double layer of a sheer brown organdy ribbon.
The next card is a very simple thank you for someone who did a nice thing for me:
I stamped this last night while the Phillies were winning the Nat'l League playoffs! Yahoo!!! I thought this DP was so vivid that I didn't need much else for fear of being too busy or distracting. The sentiment is from Pocket Silhouettes, and is mounted on a punchout from the Small Oval punch and the Designer Label punch, then threaded through with SU's new Regal Rose grosgrain. The little brown flower is a Felt Fusion Too. The Pink Pirouette paper is a perfect match for this DP, I think!
Have a great day---a little cloudy here in PA, but still a wonderful day! I am looking forward to spending time with my stamping friends tonight! Thanks for visiting!
