Eggplant Because I Care

I got a new set of scallop Nestabilities ( I forget the exact name right now) and I had to play with them.   Here I have a white base layered with white embossed with the square lattice EF.  I inked up the flower with Wisteria Wonder and then used a sponge dauber to add some Elegant Eggplant highlights. I used a Lucky Limeade marker on the leaves. The eggplant strip is from the Rich Regals Print DSP.

This card is nearly entirely SUO. If you sub a regular scallop punch for the fancy Nestability it would be SUO.

My daughters have been here visiting and we've spent some time stamping. It's been lots of fun! More cards tomorrow :-)

Stamps: Just Because
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant Print DSP
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Square lattice EF, Nestabilities, dimensionals, sponge dauber

Masculine Card

I wanted a masculine card so no ribbon or frills. Instead I used my Score-Pal to score double lines above and below the image.

Stamps: Birds and Nests by Cavallini
Paper: Early Espresso Neutral Print DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Postage Stamp punch, Score-Pal

Just Believe

Here is a slightly modified version of a cute card I found here.  Markers were used on the main image.  The sentiment is popped up on dimensionals.

Stamps:  Just Believe
Paper: Kraft, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Ink: Cherry Cobbler & Wild Wasabi markers
Accessories: Scalloped Border punch, twine, dimensionals

Happy 80th Bday Mom

I love how bright and happy the melon mambo and pumpkin pie look together.  This card is pretty straight forward. I used the stamp-a-majig to get the frosting on the cake but I didn't use it for the candle hence the floating in the sky candle :-)  I used markers for the candle and the little dots on the frosting. The heart on the circle is popped up on a dimensional as is the cupcake layer and the tag layer. The buttons are attached with glue dots. Thanks for checking out my card.

Stamps: Create A Cupcake, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Flirtatious DSP
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight markers, 3/4" circle punch, heart to heart punch, large & small tag punches, melon mambo ribbon, soft subtles button, Baker's twine (non-SU), dimensionals

Get Well & Hello Doily

New stamp and new color! Fun stuff!  Here is the new SU Hello, Doily stamp done in Wisteria Wonder.

I stamped the doily in the new 2011 In Color Wisteria Wonder. I added some retired Vintage Violet ribbon and then matted it on Wisteria Wonder and then Whisper White.  I punched some Wisteria using the decorative label punch but it seemed too big for the white oval so I cut out the mid section, taped it together on the back side and then added the oval. You have to look really close to see it. It fits much better now.

This card also works nicely for the SU Only Challenge SUOC24.

Stamps: Hello Doily, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White
Ink: Wisteria Wonder
Accessories: Vintage Violet ribbon (ret), large oval punch, decorative label punch, dimensionals

Addendum:  I needed a sympathy card so I went back and reworked this slightly.  Only minor changes. This time I didn't cut down the decorative label punch and I moved it up.
