Watercolor Winter with Word Play

I made this card using a couple great sets - Watercolor Winter and Word Play.  I don't use the set Word Play enough.  I need to pull it out more often!  My DSP is called Festival of Prints.  My color combo is Lucky Limeade, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.  I used the Perfect Polka Dots folder on the background strip of Core'dinations card stock and then sanded it off a little.  I used a couple circle punches and larger circle dies.  This sketch is an old Mojo Monday.  Finally I added a small banner cut with the Itty Bitty Banners die.  Thanks for stopping by!

Friendly Phrases

Last fall I got some of the Spice Cake designer fabric and I really haven't used it that much.  I decided to pull some out for this card. I attached a piece of fabric to some chipboard and then ran it through my Big Shot using the Lattice die.  It looks really great in real life!  My color combo is Pool Party, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.  My DSP is from the Holiday Catalog.  It's called Festival of Prints.  My sentiment is from the set Friendly Phrases.  I layered that on the circle and scallop circle punches.  The only other punch I used is the scallop border for a little trim.  Thanks for stopping by!

Bold Snowflake

I was very happy when SU started offering a bunch of different stamps in a single version.  I already owned most of the sentiment stamps but this Bold Snowflake is a brand new stamp and it really caught my eye.  It coordinates with the Blossom punch.  I hadn't bought the Blossom punch yet so this stamp was the perfect excuse!  My color combo is Marina Mist, Early Espresso and Midnight Muse.  I used two different embossing folders - Snow Burst and Argyle.  I added some ribbon and a small button to finish it off.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Hour

I've been working on some samples for an upcoming workshop.  Here's one of the rejects.  I like this layout but it's a little tight within the circle punch.  That's a little tricky in a group setting.  I used the set Happy Hour.  I like that this set has lots of versatile sentiments.  My color combo is Cherry Cobbler, Primrose Petals and Gumball Green.  I embossed the background panel with the Chevron folder.  I added a little stitched ribbon to finish it off.  Thanks for looking!

Watercolor Winter

I've made so many great cards with this stamp set.  I know it's going to be a favorite for a long time to come.  For this card I used an old Mojo Monday sketch.  My DSP is called Festival of Prints.  I used a couple different embossing folders - Perfect Polka Dots and Lacy Brocade.  My sentiment is from the set Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I added a designer button and a little tag.  I made the tag using the Lovely Little Labels stamp set and coordinating punch.  I realized I haven't used this set nearly enough!  I need to pull it out more often.  My color combo is Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake.  I finished it off with a few pearls in the center of my poinsettia.  Thanks for stopping by!

Memorable Moments

A good friend of mine celebrated her 50th birthday a couple months ago.  I made this card for her.  I used the set Memorable Moments for this milestone birthday.  I mounted that on a couple die cut circles and a stamped frame from the set Daydream Medallions.  This set has a coordinating framelit called Floral Frames.  My background is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper folder.  I added a strip cut with the Finishing Touches Edgelit.  I finished it off with a little ribbon and some rhinestones.  Thanks for stopping by!
