New Apothecary Art with Framelits

For this card I pulled out lots of new goodies!  This is the first project I have made with the new set Apothecary Art.  I love that it coordinates with the new Framelits Label dies.  I colored the flowers with a little ink and my blender pen.  My sentiment is from the set Perfect Words.  I really like the font on this particular stamp.  My DSP is one of the new choices for Sale-a-Bration this year.  It's called Everyday Enchantment and it's just lovely.  Love the distressed edges!  My color combo is Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Poppy Parade.  I added a row of pearls to finish it off.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mouthwatering Sweet Treats

Here's another card I made with the new Mouthwatering stamp set.  I paired this with some Sweet Shop DSP.  I really like that a couple sheets in this pack are embossed.  On this card the polka dot pattern is embossed.  It's a little hard to make out in the picture but it's very nice in real life.  My color combo is Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder and Soft Suede.  My ice cream cone is die cut with one of the new label Framelits. I added some ruffled ribbon, baker's twine and a designer brad for embellishment.  My sentiment is from the set Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I punched that with the jewelry tag punch.  Finally, the bottom corners on all my layers are rounded.  Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Shoppe Template Challenge 19

Tiny Teacup Hello

I don't buy a whole lot of single stamps but I did pick up this cute little cup.  It's called Tiny Teacup.  My color combo is Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi and Blushing Bride.  The striped and polka dot DSPs are from the pack Just Add Cake.  I embossed the background panel with the Houndstooth folder.  My sentiment is part of the same stamp.  I actually trimmed the greeting away from the cup and made two separate stamps.  It worked great and now I can use them separately.  I layered both the "hello" and teacup on some circle punches.  I finished the whole thing off with a little scalloped dotted ribbon.  Thanks for stopping by!
