It's Not All Black and White

Just Smile

I was going to post earlier this morning, but I got distracted. My Stampin' Up! demo got her box of new catalogs. So I went to pick mine up this morning and have been busy browsing. Have you seen it? What do you think? I like a couple of things, but I need to look through it a few more times and let it all sink in before giving my opinion.

I made this card last night using Julee's (Poetic Artistry) latest card sketch for her Blogger Bingo. The primas are Daisy Embellishment Minnie Can from Target. The center is made of a chipboard piece cut with my cuttlebug and smooshed into Versafine black (edges colored with black gel pen) and a 1/2" card stock circle covered in glue then smooshed in clear glitter. The sentiment was stamped on a word window punch, then layered on the large oval punch (both Stampin' Up!). The black dots were done with a gel pen.

I Used:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink's Paper Tray
Ink: black versafine
Paper: Papertrey white, SU old olive, rose red, petals & paisleys dp
Other: cuttlebug, chipboard; large oval, word window, 1/2" circle, and ticket corner punches; primas; clear glitter, black gel pen, Santa's Workbench ribbon from JoAnn's
