My DD asked me to make a card for her friend. Not much stamping, but the colors really made this card "pop".
Not my usual colors, but they worked perfectly for this card.
Dusty Durango base
Bermuda Bay textured layer
Crushed Curry Big Shot Daisies with Durango centers
Sincere Salutations greeting on Curry and the Scalloped Oval Punch completed the card.

Elements of Style is a favorite set of mine. This time we used the same swirl as we used on the card in the previous post. We used Soft Suede ink and Kraft CS for a totally different look. The photo doesn't show the Shimmer Mist...so much prettier in real life. It's such a nice subtle way to add an elegant touch.

Recently, I bought a previously owned book of poetry that elementary school children had written. Tore out some pages and went to town. We used Verasmark and the swirly stamp from Elements of Style (love it!), then embossed in clear embossing powder. Next we sponged Summer Sun ink over the embossed swirl. The embossing swirl resists the ink and remained white. This version was kinda bright...I'm eager to try this with different colors of ink.

Although colors in the "orange" family aren't usually my favs...I really like this card. Used Dusty Durango ink on a card base similar to Blush Blossom. The Designer Series Paper is from the Fall Flowers assortment. A variety of circle punches and the Scalloped Circle punch were used to punch the circles from Whisper White CS.

I recently acquired a bunch of fabric samples from a friend. An odd size to do much with so I ran them through the Big Shot with the Beautiful Butterflies die from Stampin Up! Love how these turned out, using the coordinating fabric. In the photos the edges appear to be ragged, but in real life, it's hardly an issue. The small checked fabric is silk and is really beautiful. Thank you my Wallingford friend!

I love the striped Designer papers used on these sweet note cards. Using Hodge Podge Hardware on 2 of the cards and a corduroy brad with taffeta ribbon on the card to the left. Notice the Very Vanilla envelope in the second photo...I continued the theme of the scalloped notes and used the scallop edge punch on the flap of the envie.

I taught a technique class on watercoloring the rose from Fifth Ave Floral set. Some of the images were embossed in white ink with clear powder and the others had silver EP instead. Personally, I prefer the white ink and clear powder. This photo is of the roses the ladies made. We had just sprayed them with Shimmer Mist. Adds such a nice hint of shimmer.

Lilliana made this...her own design!
DD's job. (Similar to the Valentine project a few months ago) They requested a "religious" item. That was the card. The kids were cute...asking me who they should give their card to. I told them it was their decision...the look on their faces was priceless. The next project was an Easter chick flame-less candle holder. Each "chick" had a different "personality". One of the children was especially interested in the crafts and asked if she could be my helper. She was great! I noticed she was making things from the scraps of the projects. After everyone had completed their projects...I made her a little thank you...in turn, she made one for me.

I found this photo from last Christmas. I created a Gift Certificate Holder for one of my stampin' friends. Her son purchased a Stampin' Up GC for her. How sweet! I used Tombow Multi glue on all the pieces, so she could use them to create cards of her own.

I used Old Olive CS and ink with Dusty Durango and Certainly Celery for this card.I used a piece of non-SU paper behind the greeting. I just love that floral edge piece from Vintage Vogue!
Vintage Vogue stamp set and Old Olive stamp set...LOVE them both!
