Bootiful Occasions

Okay….first I have to make a small confession…the reason I picked this one…I had the boot already done and laying on my desk so I designed my card around it!  LOL…how’s that for being lazy!  The base of the card is Midnight Muse.  I took the large polka dotted Summer Starfruit dsp print and added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting in Midnight Muse on Whisper White and layered this onto Primrose Petals.  This is added to the card front using dimensionals.  The boot is stamped in Midnight Muse and clear embossed then colored with the Primrose Petals markers.  I added a piece of Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon to a gold brad and added to the boot then added the boot to the card front using dimensionals.  I punched the largest flower from the Boho Blossom Punch in Primrose Petals, cut the petals and added to the card front then added some Summer Starfruit Dahlias.

Decorate a Daisy

Our fun color challenge is Gumball Green, Daffodil Delight, and Midnight Muse.  The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Daffodil Delight.  Next I took a piece of Whisper White and used the new Festive Piercing Templates to create the frame, layered it onto Midnight Muse then to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the banner using Midnight Muse on Gumball Green, cut in half and added to the card front.  Next I stamped the flower image twice using Versamark on Daffodil Delight, embossed with white embossing powder, cut out, layered together using dimensionals then added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the circle greeting using Midnight Muse, clear embossing, color me of the words using Daffodil Delight marker and punched out using 1″ Circle punch.  I layered it onto the 1 1/4″ Midnight Muse Circle then to the flower using dimensionals to finish it off.

Moving Forwar

I often find when I go through a new paper pack that there are a couple of prints that just seem to ‘talk to me’.  That’s the case in the Summer Smooches pack…I just LOVE these prints together…so bright and happy!  This is just a fun print.  The base of the card is Daffodil Delight.  I took the fun yellow/blue print and cut out two using the Apothecary Accents framelits.  I punched out two bitty flowers in Island Indigo and added to the framelits using Daffodil Delight brads in the center.  I sponged the edges using Island Indigo then added to the card front.  Next I added the blue print strip.  I stamped the bike using Island Indigo on Whisper White, added the flowers in Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade.  I layered this on Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo then onto the card front using dimensionals.  I finished out the card by adding a Basic Rhinestone to the one flower on the bike.

Everything Eleanor

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took a piece of Pink Pirouette ran it through the NEW Lacy Brocade Embossing folder, I did the border using the Finishing Touches Edgelits with Sahara Sand, added it behind the Pink Pirouette panel, wrapped a piece of Basic Grey Stitched Grosgrain ribbon then added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting using Basic Grey.  Next I stamped the panel image using Sahara Sand, stamped the flourishy image in Basic Grey, cut out and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the flowers using Basic Grey on Pink Pirouette then added highlights using the Primrose Petals marker.  These are cut out and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I finished it off by added some Basic Rhinestones to the panel and the middle of the one flower.

Moving Forward

Well…I told you I REALLY like these three prints and I thought they would be fun for a little boat card!  The base of the card is Pool Party.  Next I added the three prints to a piece of Whisper White, ran a strip of Island Indigo through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder, added it to the Whisper White panel, added a Calypso Coral Printed Brad, then added this panel to the card base.  I punched out a Calypso Coral 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle and added a 1 3/8″ Whisper White circle to the center.  This is added to the card front using dimensionals.  I did the boat in Island Indigo, Calypso Coral and Pool Party, cut out and added using dimensionals.  I used the small scallop framelit on Pool Party (well the ‘negative’ part of the scallop), stamped the greeting in Island Indigo and added to the boat.

Serene Silhouettes

The base of the card is Daffodil Delight and I ran it through the Chevron Folder.  I took two strips of Basic Grey and used the scallop piercing template to add a little interest to them then added to the card front.  I took the Daffodil Delight Flag dsp from Summer Smooches, sponged the edges using Basic Grey and added using dimensionals.  Next I stamped the silhouette using Basic Grey, then used a dauber to added some Daffodil Delight to the ‘flowers’ in the image then added that using dimensionals.  To finish it off, I stamped the greeting using Basic Grey on Daffodil Delight, cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits and added that using dimensionals.
