Gingham Technique

I was going back through my pictures and realized I never posted pix of my last Technique class!  Somehow these cards just slipped through the cracks so I thought I'd post them now. 

The first technique we did was the "Faux Gingham" technique… Basically you apply ink to the striped embossing folder with a brayer and run it through the big shot with your paper inside and then turn it 90 degrees and do it again. This creates a cool textured gingham pattern! I thought it would go perfectly with the giant Cherry from the Mouthwatering stamp set:

Of course, when you stamp this cherry, you have to emboss it too using the scented cherry embossing powder!!

Here's a close up of the card:

stamps: Mouthwatering, retired sentiment
ink: real red, garden green, early espresso
paper: Whisper white, early espresso, crumb cake, garden green
Big shot: Perfect Pennats Bigz die (for scallop circle), Stripes embossing folder
other: red grosgrain ribbon (retired), dimensionals, 2 1/2" circle punch, brayer

Betsy's Blossoms

Here is another card using the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set. I love how easily this stamp set works for making big patterns! Just pick a few colors and randomly stamp away… and there you have it… a fun pattern. For this card I stamped the pattern onto the shape cut out using the new Oval Accents Bigz Die. This die is adds a great shape to any card! I finished the card off by adding a sentiment from the teeny tiny wishes stamp set. 

stamps: Betsy's Blossoms, Teeny Tiny Wishes
ink: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil delight, wild wasabi
paper: whisper white, daffodil delight, wild wasabi, melon mambo
Big shot: Oval Accents Bigz Die
other: Modern Label Punch, Word Window punch, Daffodil delight stitched grosgrain ribbon,  dimensionals

Bright Blossom Cards

I needed to make some simple "thinking of you" cards and wanted to use my new Comfort Cafe designer paper, so I pulled out the paper and the Bright Blossoms stamp set and created these. I love how they turned out. Sometimes I feel like I have to add lots of layers and stamping to cards and forget that a sweet simple card can be pretty too! I only just small bits of the paper but since it coordinates perfectly with the colors I used and  I just love how it adds so much fun and pattern!

I love how this shows that you can make TON of stuff with just one pack of Designer paper… it really does go a long way if you do stuff like this.. plus it''s a great way to use scraps too!

stamps: bright blossoms, teeny tiny wishes

ink: midnight muse, crumb cake, summer starfruit, cajun craze
paper: Soft Suede, whisper white, crumb cake, midnight muse, summer starfruit, Comfort Cafe Designer paper
other: Bakers Twine - early espresso

Father's Day Grillin'!

Happy Father's Day!

Here is the card made for Father's Day this year! I had seen this punch art grill a few places online and wanted to give it a shot... I love making art with punches! I thought it would be perfect for a nice father's day card. I added some grass behind it by simply cutting it with a scissor. Then I added some clouds too by sponging around a scallop circle shape! 

Here is a close up of the sky:

Hope everyone has a great day with their Dads!
