Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #38

Hi Stamping Friends!
Wow!  The weeks are just flying by!  I can't believe it is already time for another Stampin' Celebration challenge.  Seems like I just posted one!!  This week we are celebrating in elegant style with a classic red and black color scheme.  My family calls this combo the "company colors".  My dad, brothers, and uncles are all truck drivers and their trucks are all painted red and black, with a touch of silver.  Each time they get a new Peterbilt, they paint it to look exactly like the last three.  They have had the same color paint job for so many years, that they are known from California to Minnesota by the look of their trucks.

Stamps:  Tiny Tags
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Glimmer Paper, Playdate DSP, Patterns Pack DSP
Accessories:  Elegant Lines EF, Scallop Heart of Hearts Embosslit, Black Lace Trim (retired), Tag Punch, Nuetrals Designer Buttons, Heart to Heart Punch, Basic Pearls, Large Heart Punch

Sketch Challenge:  TECHNO STAMPER  TSSC159

I wanted my card to be classy and elegant.  The red Glimmer Paper adds a bit of fun.  I didn't realize how little stamping there actually is on this card!!  Only one tiny tag.  Sometimes a little goes a long way.  I also wanted to share a card that we made at my lsat Hostess Club.  It fits this perfectly with this challenge.

Paper:  Real Red, Basic Black, Watercolor Paper, Glimmer Paper
Accessories:  Lots of Love Letterpress Plate, Heart of Hearts Embosslit, Large Heart Punch, Red Satin Ribbon

I showed my club members how to use the Letterpress Plates.  They all did all great job and I was the only one who messed up her paper!!  I love the look and feel of the Letterpress Plates.  I hope we get some new ones in the next mini catalog.  And I can't get enough of this red Glimmer Paper!!!  The quality is exceptional (this photo does not do it justice!).  Four of my six club members bought it that afternoon.

I hope you have a chance to play along with us at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  Make sure and stop by and see all the other lovely cards the Design Team has created.  Tomorrow I get to be a special guest designer for one of the blog challenges I won recently.  Stop back by and see who it is!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

One of my favorite color combinations - it's so striking! You rock on the letterpress plate, compared to me. I really need to practice a LOT before I even try to show my customers. Lovely cards, as usual. :)

Is it safe to look? I really can't play for the next few days.

Beautiful card! The glimmer paper worked well in the embosslit!

Oh my goodness, Krystal! Both cards are so pretty! Love the Tiny Tags card, though. All the tiny elements and texture make you just want to touch and touch.
