INK: Real Red
ACCESSORIES: Red Gingham Ribbon, Cropodile, Large Oval Punch, Small Oval Punch, Big Shot, Scallop Edge Envelope Die
This is such a cute idea to put things in. You could very simply change the colors and the designer paper and get a container that looks completely different. I am going to go and work on my Mogo Monday card today. Hopefully I will post it tomorrow. Have a great day!

STAMP SET: Friends 24-7
CARDSTOCK: Kraft, Chocolate Chip. Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Paper, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
INK: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze
ACCESSORIES: Pretties Kit, Dimensionals, Scallop Edge Punch
The bird was stamped in Baja Breeze, cut out and attached with dimensionals. It is hard to see but the bird is mounted on Parisian Breeze Designer Paper also but I used a print in the Chocolate Chip color. I loved the way it turned out. The card that I did for my classes looked more masculine (I think because I used the striped side of the paper). This card felt more feminine to me with the floral piece of designer paper. I added the flower and the pearls also because it seemed to enhance the femininity of the card. I showed my upline and sidelines yesterday and our stamping marathon. They seemed to like it also. I will talk more about our stamping adventure in a later blog because I am totally exhausted from yesterday and I need to rest. It is a beautiful day here today, so I am going to take advantage of that. Enjoy the rest of your day!

I did this card a few months back for a Technique Class that was about "BRAYERS". At that class, I demonstrated 3 different techniques that you can use brayers for. I enjoy teaching the technique classes because I think it gives people other options in making their cards. Enjoy the rest of your day.

STAMP SETS: Lovely As A Tree, Canvas Background (retired "09)
CARDSTOCK: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla
INK: Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, Not Quite Navy
ACCESSORIES: Old Olive Marker, Pumpkin Pie Marker, Real Red Marker, Very Vanilla 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
Although the Canvas Background stamp is retired, you could use the backgound stamp "SANDED" to give the background on this card some texture. It would create a little bit more interest on the card. At the time that I designed the card, I challenged myself to use colors that I would not normally use. I never used Not Quite Navy in creating my cards before. It was not a favorite color of mine. But since I used it on this card, I find myself using it more and more. So my word of advice to you today is...Don't be afraid to try new color combinations or at least one new color in your next card. You might find that you will be using it a lot more in your card and scrapbook creations. Enjoy the rest of your day!

I didn't get my camera fixed yet. I borrowed my daughter's, who was visiting from Arizona, and took some pictures so that I would have some time until I get things straightened out with my camera. I hope you enjoyed this card. I know the ladies who left today did. And enjoy the rest of your day!
