Can I Do It?
So, as I mentioned on my Facebook fan page, I have waited until the 11th hour to decide to try for a spot as a display board stamper for the April OnStage Stampin' Up! event. You can't win if you don't enter, right?
Anyway, I've been working today in the classroom coming up with the required items to submit. Three card fronts, one scrapbook page, and two 3-d items. Easy-peasy, right? Well, the cards and scrapbook page aren't too much of a problem. The 3-d items? Not so easy! I rarely make 3-d stuff, so I'll have to get creative on this one for sure!
I think I have cards done - or at least designed. Here are two of them. CAS-clean and simple - anniversary card using the same Number of Years stamps and thinlets from earlier in the week.
I love the heavier Whisper White card stock we carry now. It provides a much more stable card base and I love to make no layer cards.
A second card designed today uses a stamp set from the Annual catalog called World of Dreams. The stamps in this set lend themselves to shadow and silhouette stamping. I stamped the image several times with Smoky Slate, then stamped in color. Love this effect!
I used one of my favorite colors - Cherry Cobbler. Layered with Basic Black - I think it makes a classic combination!
