GDT at The Male Room

Hi Everyone,

I am so delighted and proud to be able to be GDT at The Male Room for the next two weeks.
The theme is New Beginnings.

So, I made a New Years card. I got those fabulous pop-up numbers from my sister for Christmas. They are from My Favorite Things. I had to use them right away. Combined them with the New York silhouette die, which is also from MFT. I sponged the background with a variety of inks - mainly distress oxides.

I added black glitter paper under the numbers and a small strip on the side.

I really love how this turned out. I was contemplating adding water splatters, but in the end decided against them. I wanted to keep a clean look.

I hope to see you at The Male Room!

Happy Stamping and Happy New Year to you all!

That's such a stunning sky behind the cool city silhouette, Cornelia ... and I love how those popped up numbers cast a shadow against it. Wonderful sister ... perfect gift choice! Congratulations on your GD spot with The Male Room ... and thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! I'm guessing this isn't in our gallery yet because of the time difference ... will check a little later! Hugs, Anita :)

Congratulations! You've brought a very handsome (translation: stunning!), vibrant card to your GD role! Love that sky-silhouette combination and yes, the pop-up numbers are VERY cool! Excellent gift from your sister!

Holy moley, you've been really busy. This is that sky and those numbers are just perfect. Glad you left off the spatters they'd distract from the constrast of the silhouette skyline and that incredibly gorgeous sky.
Wow! I love that sky for your city scape.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
