This is one of the make and take cards my guests made at my Sale-a-bration and Summer Mini Catalogue launch party a couple of weeks ago.  The design was entirely inspire by Teneale Williams here and I told my guests exactly that – and one of them confessed she had already seen Teneale’s card!  Teneale has made such a beautiful card, you should check it out (if you haven’t already seen it, lol!).

Only, I couldn’t use the stamp set, Bliss, as Teneale had.  I don’t have it yet!  So, this is a good example of how you can make what you have work for you.  I wanted to also use Well Scripted on my launch night, so I made this card work for me. 

I used the colours Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Concord Crush DSP from the Level 1 Hostess DSP Pack.  I put the Concord Crush DSP through my Big Shot with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die and a string of SU pearls in the middle.  The striped DSP is also the Concord Crush DSP.

Like Teneale, I also used the rock and roll technique for the damask from Friends 24-7.  I stamped in Perfect Plum ink first, then stamped off once, then rock and rolled the stamp in Elegant Eggplant.  I love the effect! 

I stamped the sentiment from Well Scripted in Elegant Eggplant and a touch of Victoria crochet trim lace finished off the card.

Thanks for looking :)
