Rock 'n' Roll Hopes

Today's post is one I designed for a Stamp-A-Stack I am doing on Saturday evening.  I wanted something elegant yet clean and so I turned to the Bright Hopes set from the Holiday Mini.  I love this year's in-colours, especially pool party and island indigo, so I decided to combine them using the rock and roll technique.  This simple, yet effective technique is a quick and easy way to get a multi-coloured image...have a look...

I am trying to use a lot of whisper white these days...here's a funny story why...

A couple of weeks ago I was in the midst of prepping for three large Stamp-A-Stacks in a short period of time.  I ran short of some cardstock and needed to place an expedited order to get it here in time.  I was at school (I'm a teacher by day) and was rushing to get my order in by 9:00 am MT so that it would ship that day.  I was distracted and rushed and when I went to enter a quantity of 2 packages of whisper white cardstock I neglected to delete the default quantity of 1.  That meant that when I entered 2 packages it actually registered 12!!  Being too rushed to notice I submitted my order and was rather surprised when my package arrived two days later with a whole lot of whisper white cardstock in it!  So...anybody need any whisper white cardstock???

I do have to say, I am liking the white-on-white background look.  I actually did a variation on this card that I'll post for you tomorrow.  In the meantime I am off to Kindermusik with my son!
