Trying again!

Here's hoping....

Oh, it WORKED! :D This is another card from my Advanced Techniques class earlier this month; isn't it pretty? It's another Technqiue Junkies technique, called Burnished Embossing.

Now, before I tell you what supplies we used, you might be asking yourself, "Why does she point us to Pat's site if she's teaching the techniques in a class I can attend? Or, if I sign up for the TJ newsletter, why would I want to take her class?" WELL, let me tell you. :) The answer to the first question is, I don't show a LOT of the techniques! If there's something that I haven't figured out how to substitute a Stampin' Up! product for, or it's simply too involved and messy for a class, I don't even consider showing it. The answer to the SECOND is, a lot of the techniques take some thinking to figure out! If I can show you how they work, then you're more likely to want to DO them - and use your supplies! Does that make sense??? :)

OK, now, back to the card above. The base card is Whisper White. The mat is Basic Black, and the color is the IN COLOR, Groovy Guava - remember that this color's GOING AWAY at the end of JUNE, so order NOW if you want it!!!!! The embossing powder is Black, and the flower is from BUD BASICS. The word is from CELEBRATE EVERYTHING.

Isn't it a PRETTY card?? Very easy, very STRIKING. If you're not receiving my newsletter, I just finished putting up all of my class schedule for the month of May - which is NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING MONTH, to let you know in advance :) - on my Stampin' Up! site, I'd love to have you come to a class!!!

OK, off to finish organizing for tomorrow morning's MOTHER'S DAY STAMP CAMP! I hope YOU are taking the time to STAMP something!!! :)
