Leadership Swap #3 - A Little Outside my Box!


Ok, maybe more than just a little, but how fun is this card?

As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, we have the privilege of purchasing (at a great discount) new stamp sets from the upcoming catalog. The rock star image is from a new Hostess set called "A Little Somethin'" and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it!

All 6 stamps in that set work with our punches so it's soooo easy to work with. I love quick and easy projects and the punches certainly help in that regard!

This particular image just stood out to me and I HAD to use it first! Don't ask me what made me pair it with the oh, so lovely Bella Toile background stamp, maybe it was the swirl design, I dunno! But, this is the end result of my creative spurt!

The card base is Pacific Point with a layer of Basic Black, a layer of Bashful Blue and Whisper White on top. The white layer is stamped halfway with the Bella Toile background in Pacific Point ink.

I layered two pieces of ribbon, Basic Black Grosgrain and Bashful Blue Taffeta for an accent and then the piece de resistance (in my best French accent!) The Rock Star stamp was stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink on Whisper White cardstock and then embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I punched it out with the Large Star Punch and then used my small hole punch to make a hole in the "o". A Rhinestone Ice Square Brad was added for accent (Hey, those are on SALE now - check out the Inventory Blowout Sale and get yourself some! You KNOW how much I LOVE them!)

Anyway, I popped the star up on dimensionals and added it to the front of the card. Voila - et fini!~ Ok, that is about all the French I can remember from high school except how to ask where the bathroom is - very important if you are in Paris and have to GO! But I digress..........

I really like this card even though it is so different! Let me know what you think! Leave me a comment and SAY something - I need to know you are out there and reading my blog! (Yes, this is a pathetic cry for attention and comments but at least you recognize that and are only too happy to oblige............heehee)

Happy Thursday!
