Mystery card at Klompen Stampers

Thursday February 2, 2017
 
Monday Jan. 30th I took part in a Facebook Mystery card with
 
Jackie Bolhuis had a fun half hour card making where it was a mystery and it was all done at your own home and on facebook.  you could be in your grub cloths and not comb your hair (which is part of what I looked like LOL). She is on the east coast so I was 3 hours ahead of her but it all worked out great time wise and it's only half of an hour.
 
 We are asked to pick a stamp set (I chose "Know what I love?") and if it did not have a sentiment in it we could chose a sentiment. Pick your card base (I used elegant eggplant) and either Whisper white or Very vanilla to stamp your image on. I chose whisper white. (I don't know if you had to use Stampin up products but she is a Stampin up demonstrator and my products were all Stampin Up - as my best friend Karen is a Stampin up demonstrator so I have a bunch of their products) We were given 7 clues and they were spaced apart so you did not know what the out come was till you got to the end. We could chose a ribbon or twine. (I used elegant eggplant ribbon) and there was to be a banner strip but it just didn't work so I chose Stampin up stitched circle.
 
I will tell you it was fun but boy next time I will not chose a two or three stamp technique set and will figure a different sentiment set.. The YOU really does not belong at the top it should of been at the bottom lower left and the one at the lower left should of been the banner one.. But it is what it is and I do like it..
