Just Believe Watercolor

I did a workshop this week for one of my customers here in Crete (thanks again Joey!).  Met a great group of ladies!!  A GREAT night out for all!!  Here are the two cards the guests got to make.

First up, I decided it was past time I tried out the new In Color-Poppy Parade.  At first glance, it's just another red.  But, after using it, it's definitely it's own shade!  Very Poppy like-ha!  I paired it with Wild Wasabi on this quick sample using the new set, Just Believe.  One of my new favorites!!  The card base is Poppy Parade that I textured with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  Top Note was cut from Naturals Ivory.  We inked the image with markers in Poppy Parade & Wild Wasabi.   The edges of the Top Note were sponged with Wild Wasabi.  Gold brads were added at the side and top points of the Top Note.  Poppy Stitched-Poly ribbon was tied around.  There are two sayings in this set that worked on the oval stamp, 'just for you' and 'thank you'.  A Scallop oval is layered behind and attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Next up is this card, which probably looks a lot like something you've seen HERE  before.  I was running late on my prep, and a thunderstorm with a tornado warning didn't help.  My room is upstairs and that is NOT the place to be during  a tornado warning.   I wanted to use Watercolor Trio since it won't be available after August, and I was inspired by the previous creation.  

Card base is Early Espresso.  Neutral is Very Vanilla, and pink is Melon Mambo.  I stamped in Espresso on the card base with the taller image from the set.  The middle size image is stamped across the Melon Mambo layer, with Melon Mambo.  On both of these, I stamped some full strength and some off once.  An Early Espresso Taffeta ribbon is knotted around the Melon Mambo before attaching it to the card base.  I also scalloped the bottom edge with the Scallop Trim border punch.  The main image was inked using the Early Espresso & Melon Mambo markers.  It is layered on Melon Mambo and then Early Espresso.  Attached with Stampin' Dimensionals over the ribbon.  All three sayings in this set fit on the Designer Label punch, this sample shows the 'Birthday Wishes'.  Behind the Designer Label is a Melon Mambo circle (1-3/8" punch).  Lastly, two pearls were added on the right side of the Melon Mambo strip, just above the scallops.

Quick and easy cards!  Let me know if you have any questions.  Let me know also if you'd like to host a workshop.  During August only, hostesses with a workshop total of $350 and over get an EXTRA $25 FREE!!  Book yours today!!
