Curly Label Punch Card {Inspired by Mary Fish}

The two blues used here are Baja Breeze and Marina Mist, colors that will be available in the new catalog coming July 1st. The base of the card is Chocolate Chip card stock, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, folded in half. You can see the inspiration for this card here, on Mary Fish’s blog.

I used the Curly Label Punch to punch out the two tones of blue card stock and arranged them onto a Whisper White background, alternating the colors like a checkerboard pattern.

The sentiment is from Goody Goody Gumdrops (a retired Hostess Set) and I thought it would be just perfect for this card. I colored in the words with Chocolate Chip Marker and Ballet Blue Marker, stamped on Whisper White, and  punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch layered onto Chocolate Chip 1 1/8″ Circle Punch.

Distressed Flower Card


I decided to try something a little different than my usual style this time around. I guess I have a hard time with the distressed look because I always want things to be perfect! I’m kidding, but the more clean look is definitely my strong suit.

The base here is textured rich razzleberry, layered with a piece of Chocolate Chip DSP in the striped pattern.

As for the main image, I took a piece of Pale Plum card stock and put it through the Crimper a few times, both the long way and then again the opposite way. This produced a quilted look and really softened up the paper.

Next, I stamped the flower from Embrace Life in white craft ink 3 times, following with White Embossing Powder and heat gun. To color in the flowers, I used Pale Plum ink and Aquapainter just to makethem stand out a little more. In the center of each flower, I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds.

Before adhering the pale plum layer, I tore the edge and curled it up a bit with my Bone Folder. Then, I adhered it to the Chocolate Chip DSP and using the Cropadile, added 2 Basic 5/16″ Brads in brown. That was then attached to the card base using SNAIL adhesive.

Finally, I stamped the “fabulous friend” from Oval All in Pale Plum ink on Whisper White card stock, punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it with a chocolate chip Scallop Oval Punch. In the center of the pale plum flower, I also added more Dazzling Diamonds and attached the whole thing to the card front with dimensionals.
