Card base is Whisper White. Background is Certainly Celery that was textured in the Big Shot with the new Square Lattice embossing folder in the Summer Mini. Love it!! Over the texture I lightly sponged Whisper White craft ink. The focal image in stamped on Whisper White, first with the center image inked with Certainly Celery, So Saffron & Rose Red markers. Then I came back around the edges with the 2nd image in Certainly Celery. Corners are Ticket Corner punch. Layered on Rose Red. I added an element for the saying below the ribbon. Large Oval & Scallop Oval punches. On the Thanks so much I added a flower brad from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware. The brads on the flower image are Vintage Silver brads. White Satin ribbon finishes it off! Let me know if you have any questions!!
Need to play more with this bird punch!! NOTE: Most items used on this card are in the Occasions Mini catalog with ENDS April 30. No guarantee that any will make the next big catalog so get them NOW if you haven't yet!!
Back tomorrow with another club card. And, don't forget the Royal Blog tour is coming April 30-May 3. My projects are almost done!! I'm featuring the For All You Do set, page 118.
Card base is Bermuda Bay, layer is Crushed Curry. Guess I'm in the mood for bright colors! These two do go great together! I stamped the flower images first, one in Crushed Curry, one in Bermuda Bay then did Basic Black outlines over. Completely eyeballed. And I have the wood mount stamp not the clear. What I was thinking I'm not real sure?? Anyway, it's easy to line up!! Guess all the years of using wood works for me!! Bottom edge of the Curry was done with the Eyelet Border punch, Bermuda Bay ribbon tied around. 'thanks' punched with the Large Oval then Scallop Oval. Pretty simple & quick!!
This is for the Stamping 411 Sketch of the week. Not the best card ever, but a start back on the creative path! Here is the sketch:
and here is what I did with it using the new Sneak Peak set, Awash with Flowers:
Card base is Melon Mambo. I stamped the large outline flower first in Melon Mambo around the edges, then followed up with the Craft White. A "Thank You" from Thank You kindly is stamped at the bottom. I had stamped it first too in Melon Mambo, and tried to do the shadow effect with the White over, but it pretty much landed right on top of the Mambo. Oh well!
In the center is a Crushed Curry layer that was edged at the top with the Eyelet Border punch. A Shimmery White layer was added and stamped with this fun new set. I did the bold image first in the center with Melon Mambo, then around the edges with Crushed Curry. I did the outline image over in Basic Black. A Melon Mambo ribbon around the bottom of the layer finishes it off.
Remember this set is available this month as a Sneak Peak from the upcoming Idea Book & Catalog as part of the 2-Step into Spring Promotion.
