So I had a vague idea of what I wanted to do for my class Monday night, but every time I sat down to put that idea to paper, I just was blank! I knew what stamp I wanted to use, and the colors, but nothing else. My mojo was gone! So Friday came and went, nothing. Saturday came and went, nothing. Sunday afternoon, nothing. Now I was panicking; my class is right after work on Monday, need to get my act together, NOW!
Take a break, make dinner. Casually check my email (a stall tactic because I still didn’t know what to do!) An email with the following sketch challenge from the Paper Players, and it all came together!
Thank God for the Paper Players! Right sketch, just in the nick of time. I ran back downstairs to My Stampin’ Space, and pulled together not one, but two cards in no time! Thank you Nance and the Paper Players.
For both cards I used Tip Top Taupe for the card base and a Mint Macaron layer. In the top card, I stamped some ink spots from Gorgeous Grunge in Mint Macaron directly on the Mint Macaron layer. I stamped the Definitely Dahlia flower onto Whisper White cardstock with Mint Macaron ink and fussy-cut the flower out. A few strands of Gold Metallic thread peek out from behind the flower.
On the second card, I added a Whisper White layer and stamped both the ink spots and flower directly onto this layer. The Mint Macaron strip and Tip Top Taupe banner are adorned with a metal rimmed pearl (my new fav embellishment from the new catalog!) The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Sprinkles on Top stamp set stamped in Tip Top Taupe ink on the same color cardstock.
I quickly picked a favorite and that’s what we will be making in class tomorrow. Which one is your favorite? You’ll have to check my facebook page Monday night to see which card we make in class. Until then, leave me a comment and tell me your choice.
