Look Ma, No Stampin! and some blog candy for you
I finally got my stamping room cleaned up yesterday and had some time to put a card together. I've had these grungeboard letters that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist for several months and finally decided to use them on a card. Here's the deets on this card. The card base is Pink Pirouette and I also used Bravo Burgundy and Georgia Pacific White. The patterned paper is from the BasicGrey Eva collection. I also used a BasicGrey rubon from the Euphoria Olio collection on the white piece. I added a tiny bit of highlighting with a clear Spica glitter pen on the rubon to match the shimmer of the grungeboard letters. Since I glimmered the letters so long ago, I can't remember for sure which Glimmer Mist color I used. I'm not sure if it was Kiwi or Seafoam or both of them layered on each other. Finally, I finished it up with a few buttons from the Making Memories Rouge Paperie Blossom and Button Box that I was completely enabled to buy because of Kristina Werner's last MACM post on her blog. All supplies, other than SU were purchased at my LSS, Scrapbook Territory, but I added some online links for you. If you visit the Bay Area, you definitely need to check out my LSS--it rocks!!!!!
So, this was a super easy card and I really like it. My only bummer is that I cut the inside piece of DP slightly too small but was too lazy to do it over--the UCLA Pac-10 opener was starting and I wanted to watch it with dh :-)
But that's not all! Since I cleaned up my room, I found a few things that I've had for awhile that I haven't used that need to find a home that will show them some love. So, how about some blog candy for you? I'll leave this open until Friday, Jan 9, 2009 at 9 pm PST when I'll pick a random winner for these goodies. One thing I'd like to do is lose 30 pounds before I turn 40. If I lose more, that would be great but I figure if I can lose 30 pounds, I'll be in much better shape and I'm giving myself almost a whole year to do this!!!! Leave me a comment letting me know one of your goals for the year. If you want to be a virtual workout/check-in partner, let me know and I'll give you 2 chances to win. Here are the goodies you can win if your name is picked. A new and unmounted retired SU Hostess set Make it Count, a retired SU Accents and Elements Sweet Nothings set, 2 Mono refills, a few random buttons, Love Elsie mini ribbon, yellow Making Memories eyelets, Crystal & Copper Stickles, Wild Plum Alcohol ink, and a few random buttons. All items and new and unused by me and need a new home. Show me the love and good luck!
Thanks for visiting!
