Good morning!

Well, I don't know about YOU, but things are reaching a fever pitch around here as I count down the days until the NEW IDEA BOOK & CATALOG release!!!!!!! I'm planning a couple of great projects for the Open House Monday evening, from 5-8, and stamping some samples for the Inspiration Station - and drumming my fingers on the desk, waiting for the boxes of IB&Cs to get here!!!!! :D


SO, while we wait, here's another sample from the Scrapbooking class last month:



Colors are Bashful Blue and Almost Amethyst. We stamped the dragonfly from INFINITE GOODNESS - the Level 2 hostess-only set from the CURRENT IB&C; if you'd still like to earn it, we have FIVE DAYS to get your party order in! :D - in Bashful Blue on the card stock, then took the Almost Amethyst Stampin' Write marker and outlined its wings.

We then stamped him in the same ink on vellum, and colored in the wings - then embossed with Irridescent Ice embossing powder. Because even classic ink dries slowly on vellum, we were able to use it to emboss, and vellum embellishments are HUGE right now! :D Then, we cut them out and bent their wings up, and stuck them down. Oh, and used the ticket corner punch on the mats. Simple and easy, but appropriate for a LOT of subject matter! :)

So. I'm waiting and working and WAITING.... :) What are you doing? I sure hope you're taking the time to STAMP something.... ;D Have a WONDERFUL day!
