Saturday, August 27



I KNOW, IT SEEMS AMAZING, BUT I ACTUALLY MADE A CARD THAT IS BE)AUTIFUL AND INCLUDED NO STAMPING.  Now I did NOT say no INK or no Designer Paper, and I did NOT say no punches or ribbon.  ha

Here it is - what do you think?  It is the beee-u-ti-ful NEW DESIGNER PAPER called SPICE CAKE.  The colors in this pretty paper are pool party, soft suede, more mustard, pear pizzazz, and river rock.  I chose a few of those colors to highlight this amazing paper.  First I used pool party as my card base.  Then I layered more mustard under soft suede.  I used my fancy flower punch and punched out the patterned flowers from the paper, used snail to put it on the soft suede layer and then ran it through the big shot with the petals a plenty embossing folder.  This makes it look like a piece of an old quilt from grandma, doesn't it?

Now, I hear some of you murmuring to me saying, "hey, I recognize that patterned flower.  I think you stamped it with the NEW TRIPLE TREAT FLOWER SINGLE STAMP."  To you I say, NO I DID NOT, BUT IT DOES PERFECTLY MATCH THAT SINGLE STAMP.  How cool is that?  You could use the DSP and the stamp together on one card, not to mention the fancy flower punch with it!!

Don't you just LOVE how everything coordinates here at Stamin' Up!  I sure do!!  I LOVE this company.  Ok, back to my card, I digress...

For the middle I flipped the DSP over and it is a more mustard pattern which I punched out with the fancy flower punch BEFORE I did the embossing in the bigshot.  That ended up being the bottom layer of my 3-D flower in the middle.  I added two layers of punched pool party card stock, which I bent the petals a bit to go under, and I rubbed the middle to make it cup a bit.  Oh, and I also used a sponge and pool party ink to edge the flower.  Then I fussy cut (with scissors) the flower pattern and rubbed the center to make it cup also.  Then I used Stampin' Dimensionals in the middle to layer the flower all together to make it 3-D and more mustard card stock cut in slices thinly is the stamen.  You like??

I LOVE the new Pool Party ruffled ribbon.  I added a knotted tie at the bottom of the card and VOILA - a pretty NON STAMPED card made all with SU supplies.

Please consider leaving me a comment - I enjoy hearing your thoughts or questons.  Happy Saturday to you all.

p.s. Did  tell you that today it is 109 degrees here in my part of Texas??!!  They say the hurricane on the east coast is causing it to be hotter than normal.  I believe we set a record for this high of heat.  I am inside stamping and my hubby - he is outside working on the lawn!!  Stubborn man would not wait until this evening when it got down below 100 degrees.  I have been taking him glasses of water every 30 minutes so I won't find him passed out in the grass.  Love him and am grateful for all his hard work.

Inky fingers y'all.
