Clubbing??

I must say i really had fun making this card :-) I gave the card the sentiment "Party Time" but to be honest.. i sort of wanted to go really "silly" can add "... wanna go clubbing?" But i guess i am getting too old for clubbing anyways. :-) I first determined were my long patterned panel would need to go. Taped it loosely onto the red paper and stamped than the lanterns using the stamp-positioner over both panels. Than i took the long panel off and layered it with a contrasting paper and stiched to all layers. I stamped the lantern line again, colored everything in and cut only the lanterns out, being careful to pick colors to the right lantern to stand out against the yellow DP. Two brads from the Hodgepodge set were used to hold the line up.
I need to give credit to my fabulous DT friend Heidi who came up with this fun sketch for the Friday Sketcher blog. Iam sure she can inspire you for this week as well - check it out we have a fabulous prize for this week up for grasp.


Some of you have probably have heard that Helene from Alota has picked a few new stampers to be in the Design Team with Susan, Biggan and myself. One of the new girls is Frances - I was not surprised that Helene picked Frances - i know her from SCS. Her creations do always stand out and invite to look at them. Her nickname on SCS is Stamping Owl. She does make really cute cards and she likes the cute style too. Iam thrilled to be with her in the Team! There will be also a few more new DT Members ... but i can not say more at this time :-)




Oh, my goodness and before i forgorget an other day to tell you about it... have you checked out Ila's blog candy? she is giving some stamps from the very new High Hopes release away.

Wonderful card, Claudia! I get a "clubing" even jazzy feel from it even though I feel too old these days for actual clubing. But nice to reminisce. Have a great weekend, Maria
