As a fun project, the SASSSC ladies decided to break into two groups and submit cards to Stampers Sampler for their "Point of View" section/article. In Point of View you make differnt cards utilizing one stamp. So half of us chose the Rose from Stampin Up's "Fifth Avenue Floral" set and the other half chose the Chef from Stampin Up's "Viola" set. For unforseen circumstance not everyone was able to participate, but below are the cards that I submitted to Stampers Sampler. Hopefully our submissions will be selected and published in an upcoming issue. I will let you know if we are selected and what issue we are in.

I chose the Chef from Viola and utilized the brayering techniques that I learned in Michelle Zindorf class in March. Notice the artwork hanging on the wall.
Since there were only 3 Fifth Avenue Rose submissions, I created this one to send in as well.
Yellow Rose of Texas - we have to let them know we are from the Great State of Texas!
Deb chose to do a card with the Fifth Avenue Rose, because she thought her idea of "John the Baptist" was "morbid". Well when she presented the morbid idea, I asked if I could take her idea and give it a shot and not make it appear morbid...lol.
Well this is what I came up...I thought it would make a Great Halloween Card!
Here are the steps for making this card:
All supplies are Stampin' Up.
Stamp the chef with black ink on white cardstock.
Utilizing the Stamp-a-ma-jig I just inked the head and stamped it on the clear sheet.
I lined up the head so that it would sit on the serving platter.
And stamped it. I also masked the head and stamped the grapes around the head.
I cut it out.
I colored it in with with markers. You can color it first then cut it out.
I did not want to just chop his head off...so I made him an executioners mask from black cardstock using the large oval punch and trimming the end.
I brayered Daffodil Delight on white cardstock. Utilizing the brayering technique that I learned from Michelle Zindorf.
Stamped the Haunted House with black ink.
Stamped the house again on sticky paper to create a mask. Cut around the house and moon.
Masked off the house - note: I only masked off the moon and lights in the house.
Brayered Pumpkin Pie Ink over the Daffodil Delight.
Tore the stick paper to represent a hill and sponged Old Olive ink.
Sponged Elegant Eggplant along the bottom and bottom corners.
I brayered Daffodil Delight along the left side of the picture.
I sponged all the edges and corners with black ink.
I attached the Chef man onto my scenery and layered onto to Crushed Concord (New In-Color) and Pumpking Pie cardstock.
I stamped the Happy Halloween in Elegant Eggplant and layered onto Pumpkin Pie with the word window punched out of Old Olive and attached with black brads. This was attached with dimensionals so it sat above the chef.
VIOLA!! Happy Halloween!! Sad to say that this set is being retired in the next few days....But I am keeping mine...I just love him!!
