Wow! It is so cold here. Today the high is supposed to 49 degrees. Not right, I tell you! The weather is all crazy and its a perfect day to stay inside and work in the stamp room. Unfortunately, the stuff I am working on I can't share but I do have a couple of things that are interesting.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and my friend & Spellbinders Design Team Member, Terre Fry, has altered a bra for the occasion. You have got to check it out HERE! Its so cool. She used her Wizard and die templates with fabric to alter the bra. Bet you didn't know that you could cut fabric with your Nestabilities™ did you? Love it, Terre!
Also yesterday was the Color Combo Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The color combo was Bermuda Bay, Apricot Appeal and Chocolate Chip. Bermuda Bay is one of the new In-Colors. I only purchased a package of 12 x 12 cardstock of In-Colors so I had to improvise an ink color. I found that the Colorbox Queue Sweet Sixteen - Turquoise- was a really good match. I am really starting to love chalk ink. It covers so good on clear stamps, too.
Here is my card from yesterday:
I stamped the flower image from the September Kit of the Month (Unity Stamp Co.) using Apricot Appeal, Chocolate Chip and the Colorbox Turquoise onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock. I matted that onto a piece of Apricot Appeal and added the brad from the Hodge Podge Hardware kit. I mounted that onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock cut to 5x5" and my Chocolate Chip base is a 5 1/4" square card. For the bottom detail, I cut a frame using the Scalloped Edge Frame from Spellbinders. I cut off just the bottom to go under the Bermuda Bay that I cut using the Ric Rac Scallop Borderabilities from Spellbinders. The tag is cut from the Ribbon Tag Trio 2 using Whisper White cardstock and the sentiment is from Gina K. Designs. That ribbon is the last little bit of Chocolate Satin Ribbon I bought from Stampin' Up! a few years ago. Love that stuff!
So I hope you are having a good week and a great Wednesday. Hopefully where you live the weather is good and warm! Have a great day!
