BSU092816


Hello....is time for another BSU Chalenge! This week we are featuring at stamp set. Timeless Textures. Now this set at first caught me as being kind of tricky to showcase. It's a texture....to me background style....But once I started looking around I noticed if you just pair it with a sentiment you have some really great oppurtunities to let this set shine on it's own. This was a very quick and simple card to make. Let me explain what I did.

I started with a base of Basic Black card stock....then layered a Whisper White panel on it. With Basic Black ink I stamped the cup ring stamp repeatedly up the left side. I used the fun leafy or fluer style stamp at the bottom. I then took the woodgrain looking stamp and stamped it in Smoky Slate over my already stamped images. I finished with a bunch of the little splatter style stamp all through out until I was happy with the look. I grabbed my sentiment from Suite Seasons stamp set and stamped it in Basic Black. To tip this over the top I added rhinstones to carry over the splattered look. I LOVE black and white on a card....it gives even the most plain images an added pop of elegance. Pair that with rhinestones and you can't go wrong! 

So there you have it.......now go dig out that hidden treasure of a stamp set and try it yourself.

BSU090716


Welcome to this weeks Broke Stampers Unite challenge. I love this time of year!!! The Holiday catalog is out....be sure to click over there on the right to take a look at it.  So many cute things in there!!! This week is theme ....so we are showcasing the Holiday Catalog as our theme. Anything in the new mini.....so I chose the fun Cookie Cutter Halloween set along with the matching punch. The fun thing about this is there's a super cute Christmas set to also go with this same punch!! I love being able to get multi uses for one item!  Anyway, I snuck in a couple stamps from the Spooky Fun stamp set also.  Those cute pumpkins as well as the sentiment came from that set.  I used the Halloween Night designer series paper pack on a base of Pumpkin Pie card stock. Topped it aall off with a bit of the Halloween Night bakers twine and some Halloween Night enamel dots for the mummy's eyes and with the twine.  So that's my submission for the Holiday Catalog theme. Again if you are looking to get any of these items you can shop the Holiday Catalog over on the right of this post.
