I had such a great week last week! My cousin Shirlie flew in from Washington state to spend part of her spring break with us. We had fun but, I really slacked on the old blog, didn't I! To make up for it, I'll share two cards today and give a little blog candy away!! First, the cards... I made them last week before I knew Shirlie was coming.
This one was made for Dawn McVey's latest Raspberry Suite color challenge:
All products by Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Always set, Together Forever set
Ink: Basic Brown, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Cameo Coral classic inks; Versamark
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cameo Coral, Riding Hood Red, Kraft cardstock; watercolor paper; Candy Lane DSP
Accessories: Very Vanilla wide grosgrain ribbon, Top Not Die, Aqua Painter, Scallop Edge punch
I watercolored the main image and then popped it up, matting it in different colors for a layered effect.
This next card is just a simple one I created for any occasion:
All products by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
Stamps: Best Wishes and More
Ink: Regal Rose, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black classic inks
Paper: Regal Rose, Whisper White, Basic Black, Baja Breeze card stock; Patterned paper by Bo Bunny
Accessories: White Signo Gel pen, Paper Piercer, ribbon by American Crafts, buttons and thread- craft supply
The hearts are just stamped and cut out then popped on to the card front using dimensionals. I love the sentiment on this card because it really could be used for just about any happy occasion.
And, like I promised, some blog candy! I am loving the new stuff in the Occasions Mini Catty so I'll be giving away the Great Friend set:
the Walk in the Park DSP pack:
and a package of the Printed Window Sheets:
Just leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite thing in the new mini is by 5:00pm (eastern) on Friday, April 17th and I'll randomly pick a winner! Good luck!
