HSS Challenge – Romantic Colors

Well according to our weather people, it’s supposed to be freezing cold in 3/4 of this country.  BURRRR!! — I don’t do well in cold weather.  So what better way to spend an evening by stamping and having a good cup of sugar-free cocoa; and of course, watching Castle.

This week’s HSS challenge (www.handstampedsentiments.blogspot.com) is Romantic colors using:

  • Any one of the SU Red cardstocks – Real Red, Ridinghood Red, Poppy Parade or Cherry Cobbler (my favorite),
  • Basic Black,
  • Either Whisper White or Very Vanilla

I decided to do booklets and use one of my favorite stamp sets “Just Believe”  and my most favorite technique — embossing.

The booklet is really simple.  I used Basic Black cardstock, DSP, Very Vanilla CS, “Just Believe” stamp set, and Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon.   The cover is actually embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This could actually be a great hostess gift.  Inside is a small tablet that can be used for a “To Do” list.

The journal is actually one I got at a Dollar Store years ago.  I thought it would be something I could use — “one day”.  So today is that one day.  The journal background is red velvet and black leather.  So the only thing it needed was a simple image embossed in gold, some gold cording and a key charm.

Tomorrow, I’ll clean up my crafting area — tonight, I stamp!!!
