Deal of the Week

In this sample I've used the beautiful new Medallion Background Stamp. This is one of the make n' takes at my workshop tonight. I've used a brad from the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware kit to embellish the center. If you notice, it has a bit of color on it.

I took the brad and smooshed it in a Chocolate Chip Craft Pad the wiped off the excess. The ink gets in the grooves and adds color. Isn't that cool?!

To make this card I stamped the Medallion in Versamark ink and stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock. Then I took my Stampin' Pastels and a Dauber and colored over the versamarked image. This technique is called poppin' pastels. As you rub the chalk color over the image, it pops out. I used So Saffron for the center and Chocolate Chip for the outside. This is a simple but very effective technique.

Stamp Set - Medallion Background, On Your Birthday
Cardstock - Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Ink - Chocolate Chip Craft pad, Chocolate Chip Classic pad, Versamark pad
Accessories - Vanilla Hodgepodge, Stampin' Pastels, Sponge Daubers, Modern Label punch

Today's sample is a simple card to make and uses once again the Melon Mambo In Color. I gravitate to the color. I just love it! This layout is very simple and easy to do. The black card base is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Then I cut a piece of Melon Mambo 4 x 5 1/4 and cut that in half on the diagonal. You then have two half pieces to use. The verse used here is from the On Your Birthday stamp set. A piece of the Dotted Melon Mambo ribbon completes this card!

Enjoy Your Day!

Busy Summer

I am having a busy summer and do not get to post to my blog like I want. Sorry about that. There are lots of things going on and I'm trying to keep up with it all! I love summer and love all the activities that go with it. Don't you?!

Today's sample reminds me of summer. Isn't it adorable? I think so. My new favorite In Color is Melon Mambo and I've paired it here with one of our 48 colors, Tempting Turquoise.

To make the Popsicles, I used three of our punches. Wordwindow Punch - stick, Large Tag Punch - popsicle, Bite out of popsicle - Scallop Circle Punch. I used the White Gel Pen to highlight the bites and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter which is a little hard to see in this picture but it does add a lot. (click on the picture to see it bigger) The greeting is from the On Your Birthday set which inked in Melon Mambo and stamped that on Whisper White and punched it out using the new Modern Label punch. The Melon Mambo Dotted Ribbon finishes it off.

Now I'm off to prepare for my Stamp A Stack next week. This card is going to be one of the cards we'll make!

Enjoy Your Day!
