In Stamping Mode

Thursday, May 21, 2009

So you think you can stamp!

I like to think I can stamp! LOL Tonight is the season premier of So You Think You Can Dance...henceforth dubbed SYTYCD. I {heart} this show soooo much!! I just can't wait for this evening! Any of you readers a die hard follower like me? If not, try it out! The dancing is just AMAZING!

So on to my card. It's another CAS style card from the Stamp Something challenge. The challenge was to stamp a CAS type Thank You card using Lauren's gallery for inspiration. I chose this lovely flower card she stamped here. And this is my take on it.


This card is all Stampin' Up!, with the exception of the tiny rhinestones I placed on the tips of the flower....the stamen? I can never remember the proper name for that! Anyway, I love how summery this card is! It's already so Africa hot over here in Texas...I almost broke a sweat just the few minutes I was outside to take this picture....and it wasn't even 11 AM yet!!!! Nevermind the fact that I sweat like a man...too much info, I KNOW!

Thanks for stopping in! :)

I love the card! I have a hibiscus tattoo... ;-)

By coincidence, I also live in Texas, and I also love SYTYCD! Strangely, though, I don't usually watch the first show of the season because I'm not crazy about the audition part of it. I like to start with the Top 20. I've seen the traveling tour here in Houston the last two years -- lots of fun!

Nice layering. Subtle and simple, yet formal, also. I heart the rhinestones, too. But, I must say that my favorite is the title!

Summer is here and that is the perfect stamp set! I'll have to pull mine out.

My fave part of your card is the black line you drew (? I think that's how it got there?) around the white layer. So precise and adds a nice classic touch!
