Oh What A Night!!

I'm SO excited!!! I'm actually pre-posting this a few hours early. I am at a Stamp Share! My upline's upline's sideline is holding a Stamp Share and I was invited to attend. I'm SO excited about it. It's the very first time I've attended this one and I am SO looking forward to it. I know I'm going to be SO keyed up when I get home!!! But that's ok because SplitCoast will be releasing their Wednesday Sketch Challenge around midnight so I will have something to entertain me!!!

I also signed up to participate in the card swap. The theme is to make a card using a new set from the Fall-Winter 2008 catalog. My order won't be here until later this week so I am using a couple of sets from the pre-order. I only bought two sets, the "Wow Flowers" and "Heard from the Heart." I was pondering borrowing something from Sue (my fabulous upline) but I decided to challenge myself and use what I have. What a novel idea!!!! Using what I have!!! A totally new concept!!! LOL

I used the Baroque Motif set (not new) for my background. I stamped the images on glossy card stock using black StazOn. I sponged in Pacific Point, Baja Breeze and Garden Green. I was going to use the Kiwi Kiss but it was just too light. I layered it on Pacific Point. I just LOVE that color. I bet is one I'll be buying at least one pack every time I place an order!! I punched a bunch of Pacific Point and Garden Green 1-1/4" circles. The happy birthday circle came from the Wow Flowers set and the tiny flowers inside were made using the Trio Flower punch.

LOTS of taping went on here!! SO here you have it, my card front for the swap tonight

I'll tell you all about the Stamp Share in my next post!

This item was made using current Stampin' Up! products. To view more items made using Stampin' Up! products click here.

What a beautiful background, I love this. This is also one of my fave layouts to use.
Great job on this card Wanda!

Great card! Somehow I always just use the biggest stamp from that set and forget to add the others. Hope you had a great time at the get-together! My 3rd-up is having one on the 13th and I can't wait to see all the demonstrations!

I absolutely LOVE this card! It is one of my favorite SU stamp sets and I love the color choices, too! Thanks for the inspiration!
