Hi stampers! I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving! I actually managed not to stuff myself silly this year! And remember all that cream cheese that was in my fridge last week? The cheesecakes were SOOOO good! I forget every year how good my pumpkin cheesecake is! We had two meals in about four hours time so I made sure to go lighter at lunch (than normal anyway, lol) and all I had for "dinner" was some green bean casserole (because it was the one thing I really like that we don't usually have at my mom's family) and TWO slices of my cheesecake, lol! Quite a balanced diet, no?
And sorry for not having more to share with you over the "long weekend" but it's never a long weekend for me, it's usually a short one as I always have to work the day after Thanksgiving and on Saturday as well at a basketball tourney. So sadly, stampy time was limited! BUT I declared yesterday Sweatpants Sunday and got to stamp quite a bit! I've got a lot of projects due this week so I mainly worked on them but I did get one "for fun" card done.
I combined the Create With Connie & Mary color challenge with the Inkspirations sketch challenge.
Stamps: Petite pairs
Paper: Night of navy, lucky limeade, river rock, 2011-2012 in-color DSP stack
Ink: River rock, lucky limeade, versamark
Accessories: Scallop circle & circle punches, petals-a-plenty & stripes embossing folders, lucky limeade ruffled ribbon, polka dot brads, pewter embossing powder, basic rhinestones, silver smooch spray
This one turned out better than I thought it would while I was working on it (love that). I have to say that night of navy is one of my least used colors. Not sure why but I just don't use it much so it was fun to challenge myself to make it work, especially with this rather unique color combo. I also took a little liberty with the sketch but the basic idea is pretty much the same. It's hard to see in the photo but I sprayed the navy CS with the silver smooch for a little sparkle because it looked kind of flat. Sponging on the "wreath" really made the embossing pop as well.
Thanks for a fun challenge ladies!
