Ok, so I take longer than some to get back into the flow of things after the Holidays! I'm just very blessed that you all haven't given up on me!
I can honestly say my Mojo went into hibernation so I needed some inspiration to get back at my stampin' desk. I'm loving the products in the new Occasions Mini , the Sale-a-bration flyer and the updates for the Definitely Decorative catalogue! So with new products in hand and the Mojo Monday sketch #121 I set out to get a start on the projects for my Stampers Club this month.
This card actually came together quite quickly. I based the color scheme all on the colors used in the new Sending Love Specialty designer series paper. The card base is Chocolate Chip card stock. The next layer is a piece of the Sending Love Specialty paper cut to 51/4 x 4". I love that this paper has glitter hi lights on it! I used a piece of Pretty in Pink card stock for the base of the focal image. The main image on the card is actually one of the new decor stencils from the Love U stencil set. It matched well with the pattern on the designer paper so I decided to try it. I held the stencil in place and then using a sponge dauber and Real Red ink, I stenciled it onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I kept up the glitter by using the 2-way Glue pen and sprinkling Dazzling Diamonds Embossing powder on the glue. The sentiment is from the Great Friend stamp set and is stamped in Real Red classic ink as well. I love, love, love the new punches being introduced in the Occasions Mini as well! I used the Pinking Hearts Border punch for along the bottom. To finish the card off i used some of our new 5/8" satin ribbon in Pretty in Pink.
So there it is, my first creation in 2010. Hope you enjoy it, and as always feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think!
