Timeless Talk

It's that time of year for card swaps.  With the release of the new catalog and the upcoming Stampin' Up convention, there is a flurry of opportunities to swap cards.  Weeks ago I signed up to participate is a swap using new stamp sets with the Cyberstampers (my local SU family).  Somehow I thought it would be easy to create 5 card designs with just one set.  When I finally got after it, I realized that I tend to use way more than one stamp set to create a card.  As usual I underestimated how long it would take me to make 45 card fronts, 5 cards each for 9 participants.  I was a very bad stamper and only finished 4 card designs because I waited until the last minute.  Ugh!  I probably won't be invited to participate again!  So for the new few days you will get to see my designs.  I plan to make up my last card front and deliver it to the ladies at our next Cyberstampers business meeting. I should probably make a sixth project to make up for my delinquency!

For this card front, I decided to stamp right on the doily.  Surprisingly, the image was quite crisp.  I punched a 2-1/2" Whisper White circle to put behind the doily to make the image stand out better.  The telephone in the set is a fun image.  Nothing too complicated for this card front, just basic stamping and punching.  The Garden Gingham DSP has the perfect color combinations for summer cards. 

Thanks for stopping by!
