Stamping 411 – Wicked Cool!

I'm back!!!  Wow…what an AWESOME time at Convention!  I was so happy that I decided to go…even at the last minute!  I ran into MANY people that I know…always so much fun catching up and seeing my online friends in person!  AND…lots of friends up on stage for Sales, Cruise and Recruiting marches…along with Demos of the Year!  Congratulations to everyone!


I needed to leave Convention on Friday night to go to my son's Wedding Reception in Wisconsin…remember, he had been married in Cancun a few weeks ago, and this was the reception for Beth's family.  Our family reception in Ohio is in a few weeks.  So, yes, we've extended the party all summer!  lol!  Had a wonderful party there, too!  So…now it is back to normal (ha, ha…) for a few weeks!


Somehow Selene didn't get this card for the Stamping 411 challenge this week, and my computer didn't save it on my Blog post, so I couldn't go in and edit it while I was at Convention!  It's a little late, but I LOVED how it turned out, so I'm sharing it anyway!  Here's the sketch:



And…here is my card!  Again, I'm using the Wicked Cool stamp set and Wicked Fun Designer Paper!  LOVE them!  lol!



I started with a base of Cajan Craze cardstock and layered on Basic Black cardstock.  I used a piece of the Wicked Fun Designer Paper and roughed up the edges with the Cutter Kit.  I tied the Black Satin Ribbon with a bow around the top.  I stamped the cobweb in Basic  Black on Whisper White, then the greeting in Cajan Craze.  I added one of the Rhinestone Jewels to the center.  I distressed the edges with the Cutter Kit and layered it on Basic Black that I also distressed.  Finally, I used the new bat punch for my accents along the bottom as the sketch showed.  Isn't it fun????


OK…hubby is still home today, so we are doing laundry, catching up on yardwork and hopefully get some running done for the upcoming Wedding Reception here in Ohio!  I have BIG shoes to fill to compete with their party!  lol!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Stamping 411 Operators did this week with the sketch!
