This is a card that we did at my workshop last week. I used Water Color Trio and Heard From the Heart stamp sets. We cut the Whisper White Cardstock and added a piece of thick window sheet to let the greeting from the inside show through to the outside. The DSP is from Greenhouse Gala.
We used markers to color in the images on the stamps prior to stamping them on the paper.
Two of my sister in laws have birthdays this week, so that called for some stamping! This first card is for my brothers wife. She loves yellow! Her car is actually yellow! So, I thought it would be a good time to pull out the Daffodil Delight!
I used the new Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder. I covered the inside of the folder with Daffodil Delight ink and then put the paper into the folder and ran it through the Big Shot. So, the ink only came where it wasn't embossed. I love this effect.
Then I used my markers to color the flowers. Two of them I cut out and adhered with dimensionals.
This White Organza ribbon has long been my favorite. Yesterday, I thought...I wonder how it will take ink? Well, it took it well. I simple ran the ribbon under my finger and over the ink pad and it turned yellow! It needs to dry for a minute and could easily smear, but it worked well.
So, now my favorite ribbon is even my "more favorite" ribbon. And, it also explains why SU! hasn't introduced it in any other colors because I can make it any color I want too!!!
This is the most beautiful DSP pack. It is called Greenhouse Gala and is available in the brand new catalog! The color combinations are very eye catching!
This card has minimal stamping! I used Certainly Celery and Pumpkin Pie. I realized afterwards that it is really Pear Pizzaz, but the Certainly Celery worked! Next time I will have to pay closer attention!
One thing that I really love about making my own cards, is how simple it can be! We are invited to a graduation party (unfortunatley, we can't attend) and I need a card. So, here is what I came up with. Our highschools colors are Real Red and White! Perfect! I used the single Graduation stamp from the mini catalog, Real Red and Whisper White. And, once again I used the Square Lattice Embossing folder!
Today is one of my good friends birthday! This is the card that I made for her. It was my first try with Watercolor Trio. I stamped it in Wild Wasabi on Whisper White. Embossed it with my Square Lattice Embossing Folder. Then used my Pretty in Pink and Wild Wasabi markers to color the flowers. I cut them out and added them to the card with dimensionals.
For this card I combined many new products, colors and stamps! The sets are Studio Sketches and the Level 3 Hostess set Occasional Quotes. Occasional Quotes is stuffed full with Greetings and Sentiments! I just love it!
The colors are Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler. I also used the new Embossing Folder Vintage Wallpaper. The ribbon is also a new product 1/8 " Taffeta Ribbon in Very Vanilla.
There are so many new and exciting products available! I can't wait to get my hands on more of them!
