CDS Sneak Peek - Hockey time

Kim Teasdale has created a great set called Hockey Time available September 1st at Clear Dollar Stamps. I'm a huge hockey fan so when I saw this set I just had to have it!!! Ask Kim - she doesn't like the fact I love hockey so much because I always side with her husband when he wants to watch the Vancouver Canucks play. I know... I'm bad!

For my first sample, I found this fantastic scrapbook paper in a Scrapbooking store on the mainland which inspired me to make a Scrapbook page. Me???? A scrapbook page - yikes???? Being a card maker, you'd think scrapbook pages wouldn't intimidate me but they do! Why? I don't know but after making this one I might have to venture out and make more pages. I kept the page monochromatic so that the focus would ultimately be placed on the picture that will go on at some point. One of my favorite parts of this set are the sentiments. They are truly inspirational and can be used for anything - not just sports related. The Wayne Gretzky quote is by far my favorite as it rings so true. It's something we should all live by.

CARDSTOCK AND PAPERS: Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Bo Bunny DP, Hockey DP (unknown)INK: Versafine Onyx Black

Like I said earlier in my post, I love hockey!!! Can I play? Absolutely not but when the Hockey season starts, I'm in front of the TV watching the Vancouver Canucks play. So on that note, thinking that girls love hockey too I wanted to make a girly card. I've used my much loved and hoarded Damask flocked DP along with Melon Mambo cardstock. I've embossed the goalie using Versamark and Basic Black ink combined with Clear detail embossing powder. I tried to go with a more clean and simple look to this card to highlight the images and the quote.

Great job on the scrapbook page, Angela! I have trouble using stamps on my scrapbook pages, too. But this is so cute, I think I need to start trying harder. :-)
