Mornin’, y’all – happy Haawwmp Day! I hope you’ve had a chance to check out the video I did showing off the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog goodies that I got yesterday! It was part of my Demonstrator-perk….perked up even more by the fact that I went to OnStage last weekend! And boy was that a fun box to open!! Didn’t get to see it? Check it out right here! 🙂
My card today is a play on one that I remember seeing last week. For some reason, the “paint chip” paper in the new Color Theory DSP Stack really just caught my eye – guess I need to work in a paint store!! This is really cool paper, though…
A little tidbit…remember the bindings on the 6″ x 6″ paper stack? That rubber stuff that held the papers together? Well – its gone!! Yeah!! SU! listened to us griping and it’s gone!!
Anywho – I decided to make a clean and simple card with the Berry Burst “paint chip”. I added some Artistically Asian – take a look-see:
I played along with the sketch challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch for this one:
I started with a piece of the Color Theory paper – in Berry Burst (the stack also features Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Dapper Denim) – and, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, stamped the Artistically Asian floral image in Basic Black Archival Ink. I also added the sentiment in Basic Black.
I matted the panel on a piece of Basic Black card stock and then on a second mat of Berry Burst. And – yep. That was it for the card front!
On the inside, I used the same Artistically Asian image. I inked it up in Berry Burst ink, stamped it off 4 times on my Grid Paper, then stamped it in the middle of a Whisper White panel.
I double matted the panel on Basic Black and Berry Burst and then SNAILd it into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!
For the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I double-stamped the Artistically Asian image – first in full-strength Berry Burst and then in stamped-off-once Basic Black Archival Ink. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to ever-so-slightly offset the black image…
…and then I added another piece of the Berry Burst Color Theory DSP to the envelope flap.
Et Voila! This one was so quick and easy, y’all – but I think it’s gorgeous! And – you could do the same exact card on all four colors in the beautiful Color Theory DSP Stack! Hope you like…and have just added this beautiful stack to your Wish List!

Finny had company overnight!
Our friend Paul came to visit – and Finn was….ecstatic!
He had a great time – even though it’s a LOT OF WORK!!
When Paul left about mid-morning. the Finn-ster crashed. Hard. He slept for an hour.
He was still tired when it was time to go get the mail. Decided to ride.
With his dad.
Still keeping a sharp eye out for any danger – it’s Figment Season here in Georgia, after all. Those boogers pop out from anywhere – and you really never know which direction they’re going to come from.
No rest for the weary-dog! 😉
