Baja Breeeze…..I just love the name of that Stampin’ Up! color

Standard

This will be my last post for today……maybe…..hahahaha.  I’m kinda on a role and learning something new with each post.  This card base starts out with the Chocolate Chip cardstock.  For the rest of the card, we started the base with the ever beautiful Baja Breeze cardstock.  Our designer papers were layered on top of Chocolate Chip cardstock.  I decided I wanted to distress the edges of some of my papers so I distressed the edges of both my designer series papers (the printed paper is from the First Editor Specialty Paper pack and I’m not sure which pack the other colored designer series paper is from.  I inked the edges of my distressed pieces with the Chocolate Chip ink and my finger dauber.  I just love those two tools and use them ALL the time!!  I also don’t know the name of the stamp set the big flower came from, but it was stamped with the Tangerine Tango ink and then a 1/2″ circle Chocolate Chip centre was glued to the centre.  The little bracket piece was cut using the Curly label and then cut in half. 

I really like the color combo on this card.  The lace we used was not from Stampin’ Up! as she didn’t have any at the time so we just used a Dollar Store (gasp!!) lace on the front of the card…..lol.  I apologize in advance to all the dedicated Stampin’ Up! ladies….. 😉

So, there you have it…..my little creations from my day at my Stampin’ Up! demo night.  I’m off to get my swaps caught up that I entered in my SCS forums.    I’ll see if any of my creations will be okay to show you tomorrow…..lol.

About mycraftingtherapyroom

My name is Yvonne Gebauer and I'm a cardmaker and have just entered the amazing world of Mixed Media and am LOVING it!. I'm a wife, a mother to two grown boys, and a grandmother to 5 amazingly beautiful grandchildren which I have to say is really all it's cracked up to be and more. I work full time and am really starting to think that work is getting in the way of life!! I have a large crafting room and I'm my happiest when I have a group of friends get together in this room and just have a blast. Every once in a while we actually create something! Or, when I get a chance to have one of my grandchildren over to just let them play and create what they want with what I have in my stash.....which is allot. My craft room is my therapy room of sorts. My place to go and just be......
