Sorry for the long delay in posting! Life really gets in the way sometimes-LOL!!! So much for it slowing down after school got out. We've started baseball games, so there went two evenings last week. The rest of my time has been spent trying to get things in the ground! We've been so rainy that we are very delayed in getting the garden in, and my annual flowers. Finally though, we did the garden last night and I finished flowers today. Next, to get the house back in order!!
Back to the cards!! I'm going to post both of the other two cards from club last weekend. That way I have to go stamp more!!!
First up was this one using Elements of Style and the emboss resist technique. The Top Note was cut from Kraft (soon to be Crumb Cake) cardstock. We stamped on it the floral image with Versamark and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. The hummingbird and saying were also heat embossed with Clear powder, but the ink was Not Quite Navy Craft. The saying is directly on the Top Note, the hummingbird was on a small piece of Kraft so that we could cut it out and attach with dimensionals. In the center over the embossed floral image we sponged Classic Not Quite Navy ink. Were it's embossed, it resists the ink! Too cool, and quick and easy! We also sponged the edges with the Not Quite Navy. On the edges of the Top Note we punched a slot with the Horizontal slot punch and threaded a Kraft Taffeta ribbon through. Here is the trick: Attach your Top Note, with the ribbon threaded under, to the background layer with adhesive across the top and bottom but not in the center. This allows your ribbon to slide and you can get your bow tied where you want it to be. The background is a Soft Suede piece that was textured with the new Square Lattice embossing folder. Adjust your ribbon so that your bow can be knotted on the side. Attach the background to the Not Quite Navy card base and you're done!!!
This last one is also a quick and easy card! I completely cased it from another demo, Deann Oliver. She shared her version on SUDSOL recently. I added the brads, but otherwise it's exactly like hers!! Card base is textured Soft Suede. Melon Mambo DSP with a cardstock accent at the top, punched with the Scallop Edge punch. Vintage brads in the bottom corner of the Melon Mambo, placed using my Mat Pack. Watercolor Trio is the stamp set, flower colored with Melon Mambo & Soft Suede markers.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope to be back soon!!!
