My Friend

I had a request to use the My Friend set and this is what I put together for class.  It is such a gorgeous set and I have had it for awhile but sadly this is the first time I have used it.  It is difficult to see in this photo but we highlighted the flowers with Crystal Effects to give them a glossy look.

Stamps:              My Friend
Cardstock:          Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla
Ink:                     Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant
Access:               First Edition DSP, Elegant Lines Emboss Folder, Big Shot, Crystal Effects,

The Open Sea

With the Summer Mini about to end I wanted to do another card using The Open Sea.  This is such a great stamp set for the ever so difficult male card and fingers crossed it gets taken into the next Catalogue as it is a favourite of mine.  We also made a little gift tag to go with the card.  I am sorry about the photo quality, photography really isn't my thing.

Saved from the Ooops pile

This card was put together out of a few pieces I had started for other projects and for whatever reason wasn't happy with.  I was packing up and thought perhaps I could put some of the bits to use and this is the outcome.

Stamps:       French Foliage, En Francais, Summer Solstice
Cardstock:  Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Ink:             Basic Black, Crumb Cake
Access:       Pearls, Basic Black Stripped Grosgrain ribbon  

Sending Sympathy

This is the second Sympathy card we have done this term.  Sadly they are something that we need to have but don't like to think about.  I am hoping that this sits in my collection gathering dust for some time.  We used markers to colour the stamp.

Stamps:            Just Believe, Petite Pairs
Cardstock:       Wisteria Wonder, Very Vanilla
Ink:                   Certainly Celery, Wisteria Wonder
Acces:               Polka Dot EF, Clear Circle Bigshot Die, 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle punch

Vintage Artistic Etchings

I was in a bit of a vintage mood when I put this card together.  The Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder (EF) is definately one of my favourite folders.  We inked this one to add to the vintage feel.

Stamps:      Artistic Etchings, Established Elegance
Cardstock:  Early Esspresso, Very Vanilla, Rich Razzleberry
Ink:             Early Esspresso, Rich Razzleberry
Access:       Two Tags Die, Antique Brads, Designer Frames EF, Pearls, Chantilly Lace Ribbon

An Early St Patricks Day Card

This card wasn't designed with St Patricks Day in mind but as I was posting it, I thought it would have been very appropriate being all green!  This was a very simple card and it could be adapted to just about any stamp.

Stamps:             Fifth Avenue Floral, A Word For You
Cardstock:         Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla
Ink:                    Lucky Limeade
Access:              Champagne Shimmer Mist, Pearls, SAB Lucky Limeade ribbon, Aqua Painter

Sweet Treat Cups

There are so many uses for the Sweet Treat Cups and I haven't done anything with them for quite some time.  This card was designed for a childrens birthday card.  Children of any age like something interactive and who can resist a shaker card.

Stamps:          A Little Treat, Pennant Parade
Cardstock:      Real Red, Pacific Point, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Ink:                 Real Red, Pacific Point
Punches:         1 3/4", 1 3/8", 1 1/4" and 1" circle punches
