New Stuff

Soho Subway is one of the delicious new DSPs in the new catalogue.  I love its smoky, gritty feel.
Perfect for male cards.
I saw this design on Pinterest and decided to try it out...instead of spending more time on Pinterest.
  • Stampin' Ups DSP now comes with a list of the co-ordinating colours on the backing sheet - no searching for your catalogue needed!
  • Our cute mini brads are the perfect accessory to add the finishing touch or extra something to a card.
  • Sponge, sponge, sponge.  These DSP pages have a shaded edge so I sponged the freshly cut edges to reflect the subway feel.
  • The stamp is from Label Love and has a border.  Using my Stampin' Write marker, I inked up only the sentiment for a different look.
A little story.  I had the good fortune to travel to New York last year with two buddies.  So I had memories of this trip in mind as I was creating.  I fiddled around with the top layer of this card, cutting the piece from one of the DSP sheets which is map of Manhattan Island.  My first piece was crooked, my next piece was too short and then I ended up with my final piece.  Once I had assembled my card and looked at the finished product, I realized that the piece of map I had ended up with was the exact section where we stayed! 
Right here....
