My very first There She Goes DT post!

(Please scroll down for my All That Scraps March release post!)


Ohhh, I'm a bit nervous today!  This is my first project on the There She Goes design team and I'm feeling a bit of performance pressure!  So Mondays is the start of a new challenge for TSG and this week the theme is to use black cardstock.  Can you believe it?!  I tend use the complete the opposite colour white on my cards so I was not happy about this!  But then I thought - what a perfect time to get my new TSG Flava Sava set out - one that hasn't even been opened and breathed air yet!  Okay, okay, I'll stop waffling...here's what I made...


I used one of the moustache stamps to create the background, using clear powder to do the wet embossing.  And it was so quick and so much fun to make that I made two more...



I feel a bit of a cheat because all three cards took me 15 minutes in total to make!  I popped the embossed cardstock and the white cardstock on foam pads for depth and simply used my corner chomper for the...corners!  I am entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge.  Here's all three of them together...


Well, that's my first card for TSG then!  You can check out more inspiration over at the blog here and find out all the deets too!
