Mouthwatering in French

This card is cased from a card Mary Brown did – except for the sentiment.  I needed something is french and since my stamps are limited in french – I had to match an idea with what I had.  This is (loosely)  translated as “Just for you so you don’t have to share.”

Stamp set – Mouthwatering, Arriere-pensees
card stock – Whisper White, Lucky Limeade
Ink – Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade, Chocolate Chip
Etc – Dotted embossing folder, Labels Framelit die, Melon Mambo dotted ribbon

Flower Tag

I love Keisha’s blog A Bit East and created this with inspiration from one of her tags – just converted it to Stampin Up products.  This tag used Nature Walk, Beau Chateau DSP and First Edition DSP. 

The flower is Pink Pirouette punched with the Fancy Flower punch, lightly sprayed with water and scrunched up and left ot dry. 

Stamp set – Nature’s Walk
card stock – Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Lucky Limeade, Beau Chateau DSP, First Edition DSP
Ink – Jet Black Stazon
Etc – Square Lattic embossing folder, Fancy Flower punch, Bird punch, metal edge tag, Hat Pin, linen thread, beads, Rhinestone brad, White taffeta ribbon, staples

Stength & Hope and Winners

Today Samantha is going to our American Cancer Hope Lodge to do a service project.  One of things she is to bring is a basket with small gifts for someone there.  She wanted a packet of cards to include so that the recipient would be able to write notes to friends and family.  My Stampin Success had just come and voila!  A perfect card design was just waiting to be cased.  And it uses the Strength & Hope set which benefits The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  How perfect is that?

This is a 3 x 6 card (3 x 12 folded in half) in Blushing Bride.  The butterflies are stamped in Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Peach Parfait.  Little jewels accent each one and it’s finished off with Blushing Bride ribbon.  I lined the insides in Whisper White, stamped a butterfly in Blushing Bride off the side and left them blank so the person who gets them can use them however they want. 

Stamp Set – Strength & Hope
card stock – textured Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Ink – Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Peach Parfait, So Saffron
Etc – jewels, Blushing Bride ribbon

Sneak Peek and a Winner

Daylight Savings Time always throws me and I got up late this morning.  I’m usually a very early riser but time changes do me in.  So even though I feel like I’m scrambling this morning, I’ve got a sneak peek to show you! In the upcoming Summer Mini there will be a beautiful stamp set called Strength & Hope.  $2 from each set sold will go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  It’s a wonderful stamp set benefitting a great cause.  We used it yesterday at my team meeting and this is one of the cards we made.

This is a 3 x 6 card (6x 6 scored in half.)  Though you can’t tell from the picture, the butterfly is inked in Soft Suede and then the stamp was coated with Champagne Mist shimmer ink before stamping.  It has a beautiful shine to it.  The card is “spritz” with a Soft Suede marker and then sprayed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.

Stamp Set – Strength & Hope
card stock – Pink Pirouette, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Ink – Pink Pirouette, Soft Suede
Stampin’ Write Marker – Soft Suede
Ect – Vanilla Smooch Spritz, Spritzer tool, Tasteful Trim die, Curly Label punch, 1 1/4 circle punch, 1/8 White ribbon, pearls, sponge, Champagne Mist shimmer ink

On to the fun!  I used the random number generator to pick the blog candy winner and it is number 19 – Jennifer!
