This lovely card came straight from our Stampin' Success magazine (designed by Jenny Peterson) that I receive by being a demonstrator. I loved it just the way it was. Some of my ladies changed the sentiment to Sympathy or Happy Birthday, but it was still lovely any way you made it. This card used the Very Vintage stamp set and Everyday Enchantment DSP both from the Sale-a-bration catalog. The Label Framelits were from the Occasion-Mini Catalog.
This card was inspired by my fellow demonstrator Lisa F., who I went to Convention with last year. Thanks for the inspiration! Using the Twitterpated DSP, Bordering on Romance stamp set, and Baja Breeze, Island Indigo, and Blushing Bride cardstocks, I thought this card came together very nicely with the hand watercolored image and the Victoria Crochet trim. Simple but cute!
This is another card I borrowed straight from my Stampin' Success magazine (forgive me, but I can't remember the designer's name) that used more of the Twitterpated DSP, the Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon, and the new Edgelits Dies and the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. The only thing I changed was the Pear Pizazz seam binding bow. I absolutely love the Mixed Bunch flower image heat embossed with white embossing powder. I will admit however, I'm still learning how to get a perfect, straight, lined up edge with these new tools. Practice, practice, practice!
I'm proud to say that this card design is an original straight from my brain! I wanted to use the You're My Type set and the Well Worn DSP, so this is my result! I did try a new technique again offered from my Stampin' Success magazine, called "Tapping". I used the Woodgrain background stamp with Not Quite Navy ink, then tapped the Early Espresso marker around the stamp to create a subtle two-color effect on the custom tag. I also used the Crop-a-dile to punch half circles into the card edge for placing and tying the two ribbons. A potentially masculine card, don't you think?
