Aren’t you just SO excited about Stampin’ Up?
This weekend the new 2013-2014 Idea Book & Catalog has gone live. You can order from that as well as the previous, 2012-2013 Idea Book & Catalog and even the Spring Mini! Whew. That’s a lot. So, you can really get your Stampin’ Up shoppin’ fill in!
Now, onto the reason I am posting. I’ve had new stuff for a while. I have not had the time to play with it though. So, today I decided to do just that. Might even reorganize my paper too.
Anyway. You know I love to be inspired by card challenges. Today I’m going with Freshly Made Sketches. Challenge #88. Pop over. Take a look. Come back.
I placed my card upright from the sketch. Something simple. Playing with the Chalk Talk stamp set and the Quatrefancy Specialty DSP (who comes up with these names anyway??). I also added a hint of color along the bottom of the tag with my favorite, Scalloped Ribbon Border Punch.
I wasn’t sure if I should use Craft White Ink or Versamark. So, I tried both. I took a comparison photo below to show how my two samples looked. I must say, the Versamark made for a cleaner, clearer stamped image. And, yes, I just cut my tag out. Not too bad, I must say.
I will be taking photos of my paper reorganization as I go. Stay tuned. Might even play with new stuff some more!
