Now we start writing "2017!" Hope you had a great holiday season and end of 2016 and ready for new items from Stampin' Up....The new Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration will be here in 2 days, so I wanted to share another card I made with new products from them!
I used a new stamp set, Chase your dreams, and new designer paper, Urban underground. I had fun making my own designer paper using the one-sheet-wonder technique, with the new stamp set, Chase your dreams! The One Sheet Wonder is a technique for using a single stamped sheet of card stock cut into multiple pieces to create a quick-to-make set of cards, 3-D projects or scrapbook pages (Anne Hayward). I just put two of the photopolymer stamps really close together on an acrylic block, then stamped them on a 12 x 12 white cardstock in black ink. You can see the rows are diagonal across the paper, first right-side up, then up-side down, until the cardstock was filled in.
I used the Gorgeous grunge stamp set to put real red dots in the white areas. Quick and easy! And then I cut my cards out measuring 3 x 4. I did the same stamping with the hello, bonjour, and guten tag stamps but stamped them in real red. The black and gray designer paper and "x's" metallic strip are from the Pop of pink papers. The red and white diagonal strip underneath the natural trim silver ribbon and cherry cobbler baker's twine ribbon is from the new upcoming catalogs (valentine papers). That little strip is what inspired me to use the diagonal theme throughout my card!! This would make a perfect masculine card too, don't you think?
Here are a few more pictures of my card:

I am entering my card in the Paper craft crew black tie gala theme challenge PCC224, which gave me my idea for a black, white, and one color (red) theme: http://papercraftcrew.com/pcc224-black-tie-gala-theme-challenge/
