I Melt for You!

>> Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Hi Everyone,
 
What a week it's been since I last posted...Whew!  It was exhausting and totally fun :)  Before I share, let me show off a card that includes a couple of the latest stamps from DRS Designs. I think you'll agree, they are so super cute :)
 
The base was stamped with the Marshmallow Background, in a white pigment ink on a dark brown background.  After stamping the Toasting Marshmallow and coloring it with my Copic markers, I die cut it with my Nestabilities Labels One die and added a bit of paper piercing around the layer for some interest.
 
The Mini Marshmallow was stamped multiple times to create that border piece and the I Melt for You greeting was layered in colors to match the card itself.  Both of these stamps can be found in the new releases here.  Looking back at this picture, I wish I had added a bit of glitter to the flames.  How could I have let that go?  Me and my love of bling...What was I thinking?  Thank goodness the cuteness of the stamps make up for the lack there of :)
 
 
I mentioned in my post last week that DRS Designs was coming to a stamp show in the greater Cleveland area, and a couple of my design team mates and I were fortunate to be able to attend! 
 
What a thrill it was to meet these talented ladies in person, as well as have the privilege of doing a demo with Jennifer our DT Coordinator at the DRS Designs booth.
 
Here is a photo of the booth (well, most of it anyway) and our demo/make n take area in the front:
 
 
It was so, so cool seeing my design team mates cards in person on that back wall.  I know we all post them to the blogs, but there is nothing like seeing them up close.  Wowza! So impressive!
 
And a close up of the Argyle Background & Argyle Diamond stamps that were our demo:
 
 
I love these stamps!  I've used them so many times this year...Do you have them?  No?  Let me remind you what I've done with it:
 
 
 
 
See what I mean?  Cute, right?! 
 
And lastly, here is a photo of us.  I think I promised Sue that I wouldn't put it on Facebook, but I don't remember promising not to put it on the blog...Ack!  Please forgive me Sue ;)  
 
 Shelia, Me (Karin), Jennifer, Sue
 
I was lucky enough to have Shelia and Jennifer stay in the area Saturday, so after the show they both came to my house  for a night of food and stamping.  I was in heaven! So. Much. FUN!  It was midnight before we knew it!   I only wish we all lived around the corner from each other, so that this could happen on a regular basis :)  Next time it needs to be all of us DT ladies...Hear that, Julie, Pam and Janett??!  You were missed :)
 
Thanks so much for peeking in on the blog today and remember to join us for our challenges every Thursday!
 
Have a good one :)

Love your marshmallow card Karin! Not only a wonderful layout, but your strip of mini's is adorable!

I can't thank you (and Jennifer and Shelia) enough for all your hard work last weekend - I'm just sorry I didn't get to stay and play with you all. I'm counting on next year though....

Thanks for this wonderful post. It was nice to see all the pics and of course, I love all of your work. I am not always the best at commenting. I want to be better;)
