New Projects

My first project is a little card holder that holds 3 little note cards and 3 envelopes. Perfect for gifts and easy enough to make several at a time! I used our Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper and the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set. I also used our Wide Oval Punch, our Large Oval Punch, our eyelet border punch and the Swirly die with our Big Shot. This project features our new In Colors for this catalog! Aren't they fabulous!

On the front of my project, I used Melon Mambo, Crused Curry, and Rich Razzleberry. I also used the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grograin Ribbon. I layered the Curry oval on the Melon oval, layered a couple of butterly images and put them together. The sentiment is from the Fresh Cuts stamp set - I just love that font!
This is the note holder open with the cards on the right and envelopes on the left.

One this note card, the base is Crushed Curry. I added a little of the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper (just a one inch strip) on the bottom of the inside so you could see it underneath the eyelet border.


This one I used Soft Suede.

And this one is Bermuda Bay - arent' these great names! By the way, don't you just love my papertowels behind the cards?? It's quilted!! ha ha!
My next project also uses the In Colors sponged on using a template that I made by punching out circles and laying it on top of the card. I just inked up the small flower on the Inspired by Nature set to stamp on the front. The ribbon is a great technique just using glue dots to gather the ribbon to make it ruffly! You should be able to click on the picture to enlarge it to see the detail of it a little better. It adds a really fun touch!

The base of this card is Basic Black, then layered with Crushed Curry, and then Whisper White on top. I used the Rich Razzleberry ink for the middle circle and Crushed Curry for the other two. The one on the right, I just added a little more ink to make it darker in color. The ribbon is the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grograin Ribbon again. The sentiment is from the Trendy Trees set.

Thanks for stopping by!
