Love & Caring

I made this card for a monthly swap. The base is Pretty in Pink, layered with Whisper White card stock. I made three panels for the front, and stamped images from Thanks for Caring (Mini Catalog) in Chocolate Chip ink. Then, using Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink markers, I colored in the images.

Along the bottom, I layered 5/8″ Grosgrain Chocolate Chip Ribbon on Whisper White card stock that was run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

To finish off the card, I added a Bitty Button tied with linen thread.

Sneak Peek {New In Colors & Stamps}

I was able to preorder  a few things from the upcoming catalog (available July 1, 2011) including the 5 new In Colors. This card showcases all of the new In Colors: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder, and Lucky Limeade.

The card base is Pool Party (my favorite), layered with Basic Gray card stock. The stamps are from a Sneak Peek set called My Friend. I stamped the droplet image five times, turning it upside down every other time. Then, I colored in the drops with the In Color Markers and topped them off with Crystal Effects.

The sentiment is also from My Friend, stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. I added a small button from Bitty Buttons, layered with Calypso Coral card stock I punched with the corresponding Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. I tied some Linen Thread through the button and attached it with a Mini Glue Dot.

Sail Away Masculine Card

This is a really versatile masculine card–Father’s Day, Birthday, etc. The stamp is called Sail Away from the latest Mini Catalog.

For the base, I used Pear Pizazz card stock. I stamped the sailboat on Watercolor Paper with Brown Stazon ink and then colored the image with Stampin UP Markers and blended them with an Aquapainter. That was layered on So Saffron card stock.

Across the card, I used Baja Breeze card stock embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. On either side, I attached clear Bitty Buttons threaded with Linen Thread.
