Charlene, our CCEE Stampers hostess for August, had another interesting fact for us this week.
"The streets of Victor, Colorado, once a gold rush town, are paved with low-grade gold."
GOLD is the operative word. I used a set from Verses that I bought at the June convention in Springfield, MA. I used my star embossing folder, adding some paper piercing, some golden rhinestones, and some golden web ribbon.
Brenda, our Stampin B's Challenge hostess this week, challenged us to make easel cards. I used one of my 'found treasures' (while 'cleaniing' my stamp cave) as my image. It is an unmounted bought years ago at convention, but I think it might be by Stamp Camp. I added the sentiments, fancy tag, brads, paper piercing, and that is about it. I think I will get some good use out of this now that it has been rediscovered.
Now be sure to visit both of these fabulous teams to be inspired AND to play along with us.
