A group of my friends and fellow demonstrators have a Facebook group together.  Recently we started doing Mystery Stamping.  One person each month designs a card and then we are all given clues on how to make it.  I was able to participate last month in  it and this is the card I made.  I had so much fun!

A day or two before the mystery stamping day, we are given a list of supplies.  For this card these were the supplies we had to get together and ready.

  • Pick a small print Designer Series Paper (DSP) or three coordinating DSP. Cut 3 strips of Designer Series Paper measuring 1-1/4" x 3".
  • Choose 2 coordinating cardstock (CS) colors.
    Color #1 cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base scored at 4-1/4" and cut another 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" from the same color.
    Color #2 cut 4" x 5 1/4" from the second color CS.
  • Choose a coordinating ribbon.
  • Choose a small sentiment stamp.
  • Choose a circle or other shape the sentiment will fit on
  • Choose a slightly larger shape for layering.
  • Choose an ink color.
  • Adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Choose pearls, rhinestones or other bling if desired.

We then given clues throughout the day and how to put it together.  It was so neat to see how everyone interrupted the directions and how different our cards were.

I added the three pearls, which I colored with the Pool Party Blends, to finish off the card.   I love that about our Stampin Blends.  You can color our Rhinestones, Pearls and Ribbons with any of the Stampin' Blends and get just the right color that you need for your project.  Stampin Up, Stampin' Up!, Timeless Tropical stamp set, Bird Ballad designer series paper, created by Stampin Scrappper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

What a fun way to do a card. I'd love to see what the others created! Yes, I'd be interested in doing a mystery stamping event!
Glad Emily is going on with wedding plans, even if it'll be a smaller group. It'll be stories to tell her children one day!

Hi Susan! Yay! I am so excited you are interested in a Mystery Stamping event. I will have to get one going. I am very happy that they are going to get married this year. I can't wait!

I hope you have a Happy Memorial Day and weekend!
