Posted by PicasaI know it's a little early to be thinking about Christmas but I'm doing a class next month called "Elegant Christmas" so I'm making samples. Here's a challenge for you. Make a christmas card in non-traditional colors. This one is in shades of brown (my favorite!) What do you think?

Hi Everybody,

I've been inspired by the beautiful cards submitted to EnjoyMichaelStrongstamps forum for the black and white card challenge. Here's a sample of one of the cards we'll be making in my class this month called High Contrast High Style. Check out my classes and appearances page for dates and times. Have an inspired day!

Beautiful Black & White

Hi Everybody,

My friend Hetty who lives in The Netherlands has started a Yahoo group called enjoyMichaelStrongstamps ( So far she has about 50 members. To thank her, I put out a card making challenge to the members. Create a card using any MSRS stamp you may own. The color palette is restricted to black & white. You may add text and any embellisments you wish as long as they stay within the color parameters. The cards are to be 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and there must be a recycled item included on the card. The deadline is Oct. 31 2008. I get to choose my three favorites and the winners get a special prize from me. Take a look at the submissions so far
Now, go make something black, white and beautiful!
