It just so happens that this card was made last week at a recent workshop I gave....featuring (among other things)....Designer Series Paper! Or, as we so fondly like to call it....DSP. This was definitely inspired by this lovely card created by the amazing Mary Brown, one of my many stamping heroes.....I have never seen a card posted by Mary that I didn't absolutely adore! So, here it is, finally.....the card was ready, but I needed to find time to post.
This card also showcases the Rock-n-Roll Technique, which is why that lovely flourish has a 2-toned effect. Easy to do. I also reminded the ladies how to color their stamps in 2 colors (see the greeting) by coloring over with a darker marker.....it's always good to go back to basics!
This card uses a lot of accessories....punches, brads, ribbons, markers, and paper. See the following for details:
Stamps: Friends 24-7
Inks: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron
CS: Whisper White, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip
Misc: Chocolate Chip Marker, Ticket Corner Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Paper Piercer (for brad), Crystal Brad (Round-Pumpkin), 1" Dbl Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon in Chocolate Chip
Please note: ALL materials used to create this sample are from Stampin'Up! and are currently available in the catalog.
Thanks for stopping by today and making your visit a part of your day! Want to learn how to do this technique?....contact me today for your class or workshop!

When I arrived home from my trip to New Orleans this week, my package from SU was waiting for me and My Digital Studio was in it.....and I just couldn't wait to play!! If you have never scrapbooked....or even if you are an avid fan....I promise you will absolutely LOVE this!
I've completed a few pages, but this is my first one. As you can see, there are images added in using our stamp sets....and the size can be adjusted to suit your needs!! Check out the photo corners, brads, and the Hodgepodge Hardware! The background was added in....and, yes, it matches our DSP line!......and the stitching was also added.
With this program you can make cards, scrapbooks of various sizes, videos and so much more. For this first project, I'm putting together an 8"x8" album and starting from scratch....or, in other words.....I'm not using templates.
There is still a lot I need to learn about this program, but I'm pretty happy with my first attempt......what do YOU think?
