Hi everyone and welcome to a whole new stamping year!
Did you get to have a break over the Christmas New Year period? And if so, did you manage to find any crafting time?
My work closed down for three weeks, but with all the family get togethers and things we had to do around the house, along with a short break away, I managed to squeeze in just two stamping days. They were very productive and fun days though!
I've been dying to get back into the swing of things and share some more creations with you. So here we go! Ready for some creative inspiration?
As you know, last year I participated in the Twelve Month Mystery Box Challenge hosted by a group of my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators (one of the delights of meeting so many crafty people since I joined Stampin' Up!).
This card was one of the projects I made for our first monthly prompt which was to make four different cards for different occasions, but using the same papers and sort of creating a bit of a theme for the year.
This is an easel card with the front of the card scored on the diagonal, and the embossed flowers on the inside of the card used to "stand" it up. (Thanks Elaine Hannam for sharing the template with me!).
The Designer Series Paper Mocha Morning was my favourite DSP from last year's Stampin' Up! catalogue - I am so glad I got an extra pack to see me through the year!
The heat embossed stamped flower images are mounted onto the card with Stampin' Dimensionals so they act as a little catch for the folded portion of the card to rest against so it always stands up. Very nifty little trick!
There are three more cards from that month to show you, along with all the other projects which went into my Mystery Box for 2012. So, be sure to stick around over the next few days to see what else I created with the Mocha Morning DSP and my favourite Stampin' Up! stamps.
See you then!
