Birthday Wreath!

Wondrous Wreath.....very versatile stamp set! :-)
Spring, Fall, Winter, Christmas....or Birthdays! So many ways to color it and use it.
Throw some colors together, grab a theme.....and see what your creativity comes up with! :-)

I started with the Farmers Market DSP, and tried the Hello Honey and Perfect Plum together. Depending on your colors you choose, you might have difficulty with the way the colors overlap each other with the 2-step stamping on the wreath. The Perfect Plum over the Hello Honey took 2 times stamping to achieve a decent shade. I'm not totally happy with it.... but it works ok. (Can you tell I'm a little type A? lol) Using similar colors may work better for you. :-)

The 'ribbon' is just cardstock folded and distressed with Whisper White along the edges to soften the look. I crumple the paper before folding to make it easier to work with and give it more character. :-)

Hope you enjoy and have fun creating with your Wondrous Wreath stamp set!

Strawberries Galore!

Summer-ripe Strawberries! Are there many things yummier?! :-)

'Market Fresh' is so much fun to design with! Just break out your blender pens, ink pads and water pens and decide how you want to color your images. :-) Be sure to stamp your image in Staz-On when using water based products to color with so the black won't bleed.

Hope this card makes you feel like Summer!

Fab B'day!

The one bad thing about being a card designer is that if you don't have the time to design a card, it's next to impossible to go buy one.....out of just plain guilt. :-) 
My husbands B'day snuck up on me and with little time to plan a card, I HAD to make sure that I made one for him!! So, here's my attempt at his card using a new set! :-)
It's definitely masculine and you could use many different color combos to make this design work. :-)
LOVE the new brick wall embossing folder! (The bricks are much bigger than you think)
I made the sailfish shiny by applying Crystal Effects after cutting it out.

Lettuce Celebrate!

New catalog and adorable new stamp sets!!
'Market Fresh' is one of my top picks for ordering and I set out to make something come together for the adorable head of lettuce! Who'd have thought you could make a head of lettuce cute enough to want to make a card with one?! Lol. Stampin'Up! obviously did! :-)

I played with the new DSP from Farmers Market and do love that paper pack!!

Hope this card makes you smile....
