Sympathy for Ralph Thomas (Shelagh and Suzy's dad)

set - Autumn Harvest, Sheet Music, Rose Wonder
colors - Marina Mist, Night of Navy Soft Suede, Always Artichoke, VV & N of N CS
access - Big Shot and Rose Garden framelits, garden green and burlap ribbon, sponge, dimensionals

The music sheet background is a little washed out in this photo.  It looks better IRL. I'm sorry, but I can't remember where I got the idea for this card. She had a great video on sponging ink on the Music Sheet background and stamping it to create a nice soft background.  It almost looks like you stamped on an actual sheet of music.

New Catalog Open House - Just Breathe

We had so much fun creating this card at my New Catalog Open House on Mon. 6/5/2017.  I saw this card by Mary Brown when Stampin'Up Only (SUO) had their Watercoloring Challenge #174. I just had to try it!  I had wanted to play around with the technique using an acrylic block to water color and I thought this was the perfect opportunity.

Here are the details frmy Mary Brown's blog –
  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Color Theory dsp stack – two pieces – one 1 1/4 x 4 1/4 and the other 1/2 x 4 1/4 (my second piece was 3/4 x 4-1/4); add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 1/4, ink acrylic block using Crumb Cake, Marina Mist and Soft Sky, spritzer and stamp onto paper – hold down allowing the ink to spread; let dry
  • Stamp frame of chair in Soft Suede and seat in Dapper Denim; stamp breathe in Dapper Denim and just in Soft Suede; add to card front just dimensionals
  • Add some glitter enamel dots to finish off
    (we substituted retired Candy Dots)
Set(s):Colorful Seasons
Paper:Whisper White, Color Theory dsp Paper Stack
Ink:Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Dapper Denim, Marina Mist, Soft Sky
Other:Glitter Enamel Dots (or Candy Dots, retired), Dimensionals
Happy Stamping!  Mary

Birthday Stand Up Easel Treat Box of Cards Stamp Camp

We had so much fun creating these cards. I was a little bummed that no one wantted to make the card holder.  I thought it was so cute.I changed the dimensions slightly so you could create it out of 8.5" x 11" cs instead of 12" x 12" cs. Here are the original directions by Janet Wakeland

I really like cretaing panel cards. They're so pretty and easy.  You can slip in a piece of cs behind the card if you want to send a message. Colors- basic gray, cucumber crush, watermellon wonder.
