Happy Monday dumplings. As the title of this post says “Some things are just classic”. For me in crafting when it comes to color, nothing says classic like black and white. Now, Miss Hammie has not taken leave of her senses she knows it’s holiday time. The colors of autumn like Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Pumpkin Pie say Thanksgiving to me. Old Olive, Garden Green, Real Red , and Cherry Cobbler practically sing Christmas carols they are so indicative of the season. However black and white always seem to work. While I probably wouldn’t use it for Easter, but birthdays, anniversaries, or thank you cards yes I would use it.
In my last post I mentioned OnStage and that I didn’t attend. My upline and quite a few of our team members did go. Those that don’t come up with ways to do things together and hashtag it #royal mice. Once again, don’t ask just know it makes perfect sense. One of the things we did was exchange a card with someone. My card is going in the mail tomorrow, but you get a sneaky peeky.
Here are the things I used:
Basic Black cardstock cut to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches for the cardbase, DSP from the Merry Little Christmas dsp paper pack. I used Whisper White cardstock with the Detailed Santa thinlits die. I borrowed the word “Celebrate” from the Color Me Happy stamp set and stamped it with Basic Black ink.
I am so happy with how it turned out. I’m sure after you see it you’ll understand what I mean when I say black and white is a classic.
So my dumplings, in a few days I’ll be receiving my November Paper Pumpkin which I promise to share with you. At this time I have no information on refills or whole kits for sale. The extras of the October Paper Pumpkins sold out in less than 30 minutes. I’ll post any and all information that I get regarding the November kit. Tuesday we’ll talk Outlander or I’ll see you Wednesday with another paper crafting project. So TTFN
