I went a little nuts on my last Clearance Rack order and wound up with a lot of Pretty in Pink Designer Series Paper. How much is a lot? A LOT, and we'll leave it at that! So I designed a couple of cards on Saturday that use DSP and I thought I'd share them with you as I know some of you are paper hogs like me and could use an idea to use up some of that stash.
This card is actually SO EASY. It's just the Medallion stamp clear-embossed on a 5.25x4 piece of DSP, and then sponged with Regal Rose ink. The ink doesn't stick to the clear embossing powder, so it only darkens the exposed papers, bringing the Medallion design to life. That's called Emboss Resist. It's often done on cardstock, but it looks even better on patterned paper!
Have to scoot now as Calendar Club is at my house tonight, and my kids are home for President's Day and creating a wee bit more housework than planned. : ) Ghiradelli brownies are headed into the oven--yum! if you need a girls' night out once a month, consider joining Calendar Club. We make 12 cards each month, for any upcoming holidays, and also basic ones to fill our card boxes. It's the best club deal I offer, with no minimum order required--email me for details! email@example.com
