Pretty Pear {Faith in Nature}

Here, I made use of some distressing techniques. The stamp set featured is Faith in Nature, one of the Hostess Sets. I stamped the pear image with Chocolate chip craft ink on Whisper White and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Using the aquapainter, I colored in the pear with Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral ink. The “thank you” sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

Next, I tore across the top corner of the card stock and used a sponge dauber with Creamy Caramel ink to distress the image layer. It was layered on Calypso Coral card stock, distressed in the same way as the image layer.

The card base is Crumb Cake card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip that was distressed along the edges using the distressing tool. A torn piece of  Well Worn DSP was also added to the card front. Since that paper is distressed looking, I didn’t need to do much to it other than tearing it and sponging it a bit. Finally, two orange glimmer brads finish off the card.

{To a Classic} Birthday Card for Dads

This is a card I made for my father in law’s birthday. It uses the stamp set To a Classic. The card base is chocolate chip card stock. layered with Very Vanilla and Elegant Soiree DSP in this striped pattern.

I stamped the images in chocolate chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock. The car and the DAD circles were stamped again on Very Vanilla scrap, cut out and adhered to the base image with stampin dimensionals. The car was colored in with Baja Breeze marker and then topped with Crystal Effects.

Around the edges of the stamped layer, I sponged some chocolate chip ink, then matted it onto chocolate chip card stock.

For a fun accent, I stamped the speedometer on Very Vanilla with chocolate chip ink, punched out the circles and matted them on Baja Breeze card stock sponged with chocolate chip ink. Then, I used a Game Spinner arrow for the center of the speedometer, and of course I put it all the way to 100 mph!

Birthday Flowers & Dots

I made this card for my husband’s grandmother. He suggested mailing her a card but I told him that was impossible because this one was BIG and bulky!

The card base is chocolate chip, layered with Chocolate Chip DSP in this polka dot pattern. As for the flowers, I made them by punching different colored card stock  with the Scallop Circle Punch. Then, I sprayed the scallop circles with water, crumpled them up, and let them dry. I added a white Basic Brad in the center of each flower, topped with a Rhinestone Jewel.

In the background, I used Apricot Appeal card stock, layered with Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. Using the sponge dauber, I added Certainly Celery ink to the raised portions.

The sentiment is from Bring on the Cake. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink on Pretty in Pink card stock, then punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. To give it more interest, I sponged the edges with Pretty in Pink ink and added white dots with the White Gel Pen.
