Ray loves puns, so I had to get the Crazy, Mixed Up Love stamp set! The lava lamp is cut out with Chalk Talk framelits, and it's layered over Real Red Coredinations paper embossed with the Hexagon folder and then sanded.
I got this card in the mail from my MIL, Shirley. As soon as I saw it, I knew that I had seen it before. Shirley said inside that I had given her the card as part of a set a long time ago. I think it held up pretty well! I decided to use this card as an inspiration for a new card.
Here is my new version of the card. The cardbase is Calypso Coral topped with Coastal Cabana. The flower image is layered on top of Pistachio Pudding. The stamp set used is Happy Watercolor. Accessories are gold bakers twine and a pressed clay flower.
I made this card for a friend's birthday, but I forgot to take a picture of it! I liked it so much that I made another one to share with you.
The cardbase is Crumb Cake, and I stamped the new Hardwood BG on it in Night of Navy. I stamped the trees in Night of Navy then added two-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds for the glittery snow. The ribbon is denim.
Here's my third card using the Soho Subway DSP. Can you tell that I love it? The cardbase is Sahara Sand, and I added some Island Indigo ruffled ribbon. The sentiment is from Label Love and punched with the artisan label punch. I also punched out an Early Espresso piece then cut it in half to make a border.
This card is so simple! There is no stamping on it at all. The entire pattern is from Soho Subway DSP. The cardbase is Island Indigo. I used the retired slot punch at the fold so I could tie on the new Chevron ribbon from the Occasions catalog.
When I saw this card on Lyssa's blog, I knew it would be the perfect Valentine card! We made it at my last workshop, and everyone loved it! The finished card is 4 1/4" square. We made a matching 4 1/2" square envelope using the envelope punch board. Here's the link to Lyssa's tutorial. I found that the front lined up perfectly when I scored just shy of 2 1/8". I also added the Soho Subway DSP pieces on the front. It's a 4" square piece of DSP cut in half. The heart is punched from the same DSP. You can make the card and envelope from one sheet of DSP and still have a little left over! The sentiment is from A Round Array and is punched out with the 7/8" scallop circle punch.
I made this card using scraps from my craft table. The Winter Frost DSP is leftover from my Christmas cards. They were already 1 1/2" wide, so I just had to trim them down to 3 3/4". I adhered them to a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Island Indigo cardstock. I tied Coastal Cabana ribbon around that and adhered it to a Coastal Cabana cardbase.
The flower from Secret Garden and the Island Indigo punched flower were already on my craft table. I added the Smoky Slate scallop circle and a silver button (from the Occasions Mini) tied with Island Indigo bakers twine.
