A Dozen Thoughts


I wanted to share with you a card I did for my Retro Fresh Class.  I just LOVE this dsp!

We recently did this class but I had not shown any of the cards from the class.  This was a favorite of mine and the folks at the class.  It really is just so easy and could be done with any dsp and and punches.  I did get the basic idea for this from a card I pinned on Pinterest (of course!).

Here’s the details…

  • Very Vanilla – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 5 x 3 3/4, punch out hexagons from 5 different prints and add to card front.  Stamp greeting using Soft Suede.
  • Stamp the image from Lovely Labels using Soft Suede on Baked Brown Sugar.  Punch out the center using the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch then punch it out using the Artisan Label Punch.  Add to card front using dimensionals.  Punch out the Elegant Butterfly from Coastal Cabana and the Bitty Butterfly from Tangerine Tango.  Add together using a glue dot then add to card front using dimensional.
  • Add a small Basic Rhinestone to the butterfly and some large Basic Rhinestones by the hexagons to finish it off.

Wildflower Meadow

CF SwapSince this week is all about Nature on Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013, I thought I would share the card I did for the Control Freak swaps.

The base of the card is Strawberry Slush.  I took a piece of Whisper white, added a piece of the gingham print from Gingham Gardens dsp, layered on Smoky Slate and added to the card front.  I took a piece of Whisper White, ran though the Wildflower Meadow Embossing folder, added a Pear Pizzazz Large Scallop on one side, a strip of Pear Pizzazz on the other then layered a thin strip of the Strawberry Slush by the scallop.  I added this to the card front.  I took my marker and drew in the stem, stamped the flower in Strawberry Slush, cut out and added to the card front.  It’s hard to see but I added some Dazzling Details to the center of the flower.  Finally I stamped the greeting in Melon Mambo and Old Olive marker, punched with the Artisan Punch and added to the card front using dimensionals to finish it off.

Simply Stars

SUOThe SUO challenge this time is PATRIOTIC!!!  I JUST got this stamp set and I just couldn’t resist putting a little ink to the rubber for the red, white, and blue!

The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler.  I took a piece of Night of Navy, layered on Whisper White and added to the card base using dimensionals.  Next I cut a Cherry Cobbler banner from the Regal dsp paper pack and Whisper White from the Neutrals dsp paper pack.  The big star is stamped in Night of Navy and the small ones in Cherry Cobbler and cut out.  Two were added directly to the card.  I stamped the greeting from You’re My Hero using Night of Navy on Whisper White and punched out using the Modern Label punch.  I stamped one of the images from Lovely Labels using Cherry Cobbler, punched with the Artisan Label Punch, cut in half and layered behind the greeting.  The greeting was added using dimensionals.  I then added the little star using dimensionals.  Finally I added several Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.
