Elements of Style

Wow…sorry!  The holiday weekend was busy, and lots of paperwork remaining from earning the cruise PLUS my Customer Appreciation Parties have consumed all my time!  I wanted to at least post something today so you know I haven't fallen off the face of the earth!  I also decided to go to Convention, so need to start thinking about swaps and packing to go!  Yikes!

 

I don't think I ever shared my Control Freaks Swap card for the Spring Mini!  Since I had 35 to make, I knew I didn't want to color in the flowers…but I liked how the Soft Suede Classic Ink looked stamped on Sahara Sand!

 

I started with a base of Soft Suede Cardstock, then layered on Rich Razzleberry that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  I reversed the Polka Dot Ribbon to the solid side and wrapped around it.  I cut the Top Note with Sahara Sand cardstock, then stamped on the large rose from Stampin' Up!'s Elements of Style in Soft Suede Ink.  I added some speckles on each side with the Color Spritzer Tool.  I punched a Scallop Oval from Soft Suede, then stamped For You from the same stamp set in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White, punched with the 1 1/4 Circle, and layered on the 1 3/8 Rich Razzleberry Circle.  I added two Gold Mini Brads on each side.

 

Hope you have a wonderful week.  It's Tuesday already so a short week for most!
