Beaded Basic Grey

There is a contest going on next week at my LSS, Stamp & Scrap Trap (link to the right). I decided I would make a card to enter in the contest. :) The theme is "Black Tie" as in... Black Tie Basic Grey. I used a tag punch out and cut it down into a rectangle. Then, I cut a piece of terrifically tacky sheet tape to the exact same size. (I buy mine at Hobby Lobby or Michaels) The black layer is stamped in Going Gray craft. The entire black, stamped layer is paper pierced all the way around. I also pierced the gray layer. The sentiment was stamped in black and punched out with the Stampin' Up small oval punch. I attached it to the focal layer using 2 O-rings. I polished it off with 2 pieces of ribbon peeking through on the left. I find it hard to leave ribbon off a card! LOL
I am going to run to the stamp store and leave my entry for the contest. :) I am hoping there is not too much temptation there tonight. My hubby already took me to the $ spot at Target today and went a *little* overboard! LOL
Have a great night!
Make sure to check back tomorrow for some DOT-A-RIFIC news. :) I think you'll all be DOTTY! :)


  1. Our dollar spot was so sucky today-nothing to buy. First time I didnt get anything either.
    so something is missing in the descraption-where or how did you do the beads?

  2. Oh my gosh, this is wonderful. This will win and if you don't you were robbed! I love it!

  3. so are you saying that Target has new stuff in the dollar spot? I always miss the good stuff

  4. Love your card. I agree with Alli that you should win. Can't wait for DOTS!!!!!!!

  5. WOW! This is gorgeous. If you don't win there is something wrong with those judges!
