Thank you for stopping by the SUDSOL New Catalog Blog Tour!  I'm sure you won't be disappointed-this group is FULL of VERY talented stampers!!!  I've been a member almost as long as I've been a demo and I'm rapidly approaching my 10th anniversary!!  Any question you may have, someone on SUDSOL will know the answer!!  And the website is a GREAT resource for your business.  Samples, forms, ideas,... the list goes on and one!!  All you demos out there should definitely do the FREE Two Week Trial-you won't be disappointed!!

On to the stamping! As with the previous SUDSOL tour, the goal is demonstratable projects.  If you're not a demo, that should just mean you're finding easy to recreate projects, not over the top projects.   Note that I've listed the specific items used on each card at the very bottom of my post.  You can click to enlarge any picture you want to see in more detail.  

First up for me today is a masculine card.  We have a couple of great new sets for masculine, one of which is this one, Countryside. Card base is Not Quite Navy, background is Naturals Ivory.  I textured the background using a Texturz Plate (Squares from Texture Plates Kit #4) with the wooden craft frame as part of the sandwich so that the oval center is NOT textured.  In the non-textured center I stamped the truck image in Black Stazon and watercolored using classic inks and a blender pen.  Colors used are Not Quite Navy, Garden Green, Riding Hood Red, Basic Gray & Crumb Cake.  I rounded the corners and sponged the outside edge with Not Quite Navy.  The texture is also sponged, with Crumb Cake to accent it.  The saying is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped in Garden Green, punched with the Word Window punch and layered on a Riding Hood Red Modern Label punch.  Two Metallic brads were added for accent.

Next up is a card featuring the new set, Just Believe.  The layout may look familiar if you happened by here earlier this week, but this die & stamp set work perfectly together!!  This set is quickly working it's way up my favorites list!!  Colors here are Daffodil Delight & Old Olive.  The background grass image is from Inspired by Nature, stamped in Old Olive on Old Olive.  I cut the Oval Scallop frame twice, once in Naturals White & once in Daffodil Delight.  The frame was textured with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  The main image was inked with markers:  Old Olive on the stems, Daffodil Delight on the flowers.   The frame & center oval were attached with dimensionals.  The saying, also from this set, was stamped in Old Olive and punched with the Wide Oval punch.  The edges of the scallop oval, center oval, and saying oval were all sponged with Daffodil Delight.  Pretty quick and easy card, definitely something you can demo or even use for a hands on project!!

This card is one of those "happy accidents" that you end up liking.  I started by casing the sample in the catalog (page 214).  Don't you love all the inspiration in that catalog???  I added a layer and used completely different colors.  The card base is Whisper White, background is Marina Mist that I ran through the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines embossing folder.  This folder is also fast becoming a favorite!!  I decided it needed a little something else, so I grabbed my Whisper White Craft ink pad to dab onto the raised lines.  Of course I got ink more than just on the lines, so I decided to add some Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  Bling!  Very sparkly in real life, and pretty enough to be the perfect wedding card!  I added some of the new Rhinestone Jewels for extra accent.  The saying is from the Word Play set, stamped in Marina Mist on Whisper White and punched with the Large Circle punch.  See the Rhinestone on there??  Satin ribbon around the top and some Marina 1/8" Taffeta attaching the tag to the ribbon.

That does it for me today, thank you very much for stopping by!  I hope you've found some inspiration and great ideas for your business or card making projects!!  I hope that I'll see you here again soon, or on SUDSOL!!

Jennifer, great cards. My favorite is the truck and how you sandwiched in the oval so the center was not embossed. TFS your ideas.
