For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, the Stampin' Up! Catalog is about to come out - the Fall/Winter edition, and demonstrators could pre-order sets AND ONE OF THEM HAS A SOCK MONKEY AND I WANT IT RIGHT NOW!!
It shipped today so I'm hoping to get it by the end of the week (you all know how badly I need more stamps)... Anyway, I can't freaking wait. In addition to the sock monkey there are some beautiful watercoloring sets and these amazing buttons and about 8 billion other things. And did I mention that they're all DIE CUT ALREADY SO I CAN RIP THAT SOCK MONKEY OUT OF THE BOX AND START USING HIM RIGHT AWAY?? I CAN'T WAIT!!!
*sigh* - but I have to wait.
So in the meantime I did the featured stamper's challenge on SCS - this might actually be my first time at a Featured Stamper challenge.. Anyway, I was captivated by Teneale - she's from Australia and is a fellow demonstrator. The card I chose for my inspiration was this one - it's an adorable purse with Purely Pomegranate and More Mustart - gorgeous.
My photo has distorted my colors a bit, but the combo is lovely. I stamped the Riot of Petals in Craft White and embossed it with White EP. Then I took the Purely Pomegranate refill and the blender pen and colored in the petals - it's hard to see here but it really does look cool in real life. I think I might try adding crystal effects on top of it and see how that looks.
Then I stamped Fresh Cuts in mustard on the mustard cardstock - did you know that this set coordinates with the Riot of Petals? Cool. Didn't realize that till this weekend.
Then I punched some 1/4" circles in Pomegranate and added them at the bottom and some white taffeta ribbon at the top.
Anyway, thanks for the inspiration Teneale!!
Hope everyone had a great Monday!
