Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Wow … what I night!! I hosted my monthly stampin’ meeting with my downline and fellow demonstrators last night and let me just say … the swap cards were awesome (I will be sharing over time) and we had a lot of fun.
I didn’t know which card to start with today … so I’m starting with mine, the one we didn’t make! It seems my Make & Take wasn’t a Christmas card, and that was our “theme” for September! Oooops! So, I created one on the fly … which I will share with you tomorrow.
Since I gave each one of my Hostesses and downline members the “Hearts & Star’s” Decorative Masks, I thought it was only appropriate to make cards using the masks. You can find them on page 205 of our annual catalog (or below). So today’s card and tomorrow card share will highlight the decorative masks… today, the hearts!
My card uses the Ombre technique which is a graduation of color. Once I placed my decorative mask over my cardstock, I began at the bottom and applied the Pink Pirouette with a sponge dauber, continued with Strawberry Slush and topped it off with Rose Red.
My card base and greeting are also Rose Red. The greeting comes from the Hostess stamp set “Let Your Hair Down”. I used the new Sweetheart punch (which is currently on sale through Monday) to add a little sparkle with the Silver Glimmer Paper.
This sweet card is topped off with the Pink Pirouette seam binding … it really does tie in all the colors to create a completed card. It’s just a great card for a true friend.
Thanks so much for visiting today, stop back tomorrow to check out my “Christmas Card” that was designed “on the spot”!
Have a good day ~
