Picture Challenge

Our group, the DOstampers, are doing challenges every Thursday.   We have a very talented group of ladies!!  If you would like to join us for some fun and creativity you are more then Welcome.  If you do join us, please send me a link to your post so I can post it here.  I will also post links to the DOstampers that are participating in the challenge.

Love - Love the Ampersand Embossing Folder!!

So with the picture challenge we are to look at the photo and create a card from something that we have taken away from the photo.  With this photo it was very easy to know what I was going to do.  With Valentine's Day coming soon and the hearts in the photo = Valentine's!  As I sat down to come up with the above card, I started to think of all the people that I have in my life that I love and cherish.  WOW!!!  I better get going and start making those Valentine's cards!!

In this card I used Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White cardstock.  I really like these colors together, the black makes it all pop!  The Ampersand Embossing folder is NEW, you can find it in the newest Occasions Catalog.  As always....Stampin' Up! has out done themselves again with this catalog.  The stamp sets that I used are also in the new catalog.  They are called "Language of Love" and "Perfect Pennants".   With the Perfect Pennants stamp set you can bundle it with the framlits and SAVE!

The thing that I like best about the bundles are that you can stamp your images and then go to your Big Shot and cut it out with the framelits.  How easy is that!!  No more cutting out your images, you know how time consuming that is!  This is just as easy as punching out your images.  You really have to check out all the bundles that Stampin' Up! is offering.  There are 7 NEW Bundles just in the new Occasions Catalog.

Here are a few DOstampers that are playing along with the Challenge.

I will add more as they get their posts up, so make sure you check back!

Happy Stamping!
