KWerner Color Inspiration #32

Along with all of this new virtual stuff, I have made a card for this week's color inspiration challenge. It worked very well with me making all of my christmas cards yesterday and today (though I have forgotten a few so looks like tomorrow too). This one is for a very special man in my life so it's simple and to the point. I tried to get the colors as close to the Stampin' Up colors as I could. I used a cream background, dark tan and red cardstock, red and silver ink and a red ribbon.

Paper Sorter

Okay, so I haven't quite gotten the pictures of my cards taken, so I decided to practice uploading pictures of another project. I'm a teacher and I needed some way to keep the student's papers separated by class periods. I found a couple of clear plastic things that work great. Except that they're clear and you could see grades, and that isn't supposed to happen. So I decided to fix that. I spray painted them with the plastic spray paint and then stamped them with the Priceless set. The paint is maroon and the ink to stamp is a moonlight white (very pretty and iridescent). Then I went over the whole thing with clear to seal it all. I am very pleased with the way they turned out.
Here's a picture:

Hello Blog land!

Okay, so I'm completely new to this (as if you couldn't tell already). One of my best friends has a blog and she's inspired me to make one of my own too. I have been spending my time over this Thanksgiving holiday making my christmas cards. Once I get a few pictures taken and figure out how to post them I will. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
