Summer Watercolor Trio

I'm lookin' forward to Summer with this bright and vibrant card inspired by this card by Gretchen. I made my own design by repeatedly stamping one of the images on some regal rose cardstock. I'm so excited that some of my favorite In Colors from the past are returning so I added a Wild Wasabi layer and stamped the sentiment in Wild Wasabi as well!

Masculine Card

I was so excited to try out the new Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on a Masculine card that I decided to make Father's Day card. I ran my cardstock through the embossing folder first (the cardstock shrinks a little bit) and then through the Big Shot with the top note die.

I like how tone on tone stamping creates a nice masculine look. I added a sentiment from the Well Scripted stamp set - that is still available to order along with all these other items from past mini catalogs:

Elegant Watercolor Trio

Need an elegant card for a wedding, anniversary or just a thinking of you card? The Watercolor Trio stamp set from the Summer mini catalog has got you covered. I was inspired by this card by Tara to make this elegant card using the En Francais background stamp with the Watercolor Trio stamps. I'm so glad perfect plum is not retiring because it is such a pretty color.

Speaking of retiring, some of the retiring colors have already run out. So don't delay, order the retiring colors you want to stock up on today!

These colors are no longer available:

101563: Sage Shadow card stock (8-1/2" x 11")

Asian Girl Gift Box

Isn't this Asian girl gift box sooo cute?!? We made this project at our last demonstrator meeting. We used the sweet treat cups to hold some ramen noodles and punches to create the Asian girl. We used the Fancy Favor box Sizzix die to hold some treats and added the Asian Girl to the front! My friend found the idea on Patti's blog.


Watercolor Trio Birthday

Don't you just love the watercolor look without having to watercolor? The new Watercolor Trio stamp set from the new Summer Mini catalog is designed to look like you watercolored when all you had to do was stamp! I was inspired by this card by Rainey for the layout. I used the regal rose and red rose markers to create the two-toned watercolor look of the flowers. I colored the stems with old olive and then used a strip of old olive grosgrain around the picture and added the sentiment with a scalloped oval layer.

Elements of Style

Here is another card I created using the Elements of Style stamp set. I saw this card by Lori and thought it was so beautiful I wanted to make one of my own. Changing the color of the flowers gives the card a whole new look! I used pumpkin pie to color in the flowers and old olive for the card base. I even brought out my spritzer and spritzed some old olive around the flowers.


Elements of Style Mother's Day Card

I made this Mother's Day card with the new Elements of Style stamp set from the new Summer Mini Catalog! I love coloring in the flowers of this stamp! I've used the retiring colors sage shadow and barely banana. Don't wait to stock up on your favorite retiring colors - once stock runs out, you may not be able to order those colors!
