Delicate Doilies

This is a new set in the Idea Book & Catalog 2011 that I was able to preorder. It is called Delicate Doilies and it is on page 127 of the catalog. I used new In-colors for this card using Island Indigo and Pool Party. I stamped the doily stamp on Crumb Cake using Versamark and White Embossing Powder. After I heat set the doily, I colored in part of it with the in-Color markers. I used the set Word Play "Wish Big" stamp in Island Indigo. I stamped a smaller doily using Island Indigo on the background and then used embossing folders in the Big Shot. Then I sued the Eyelet Border Punch on Whisper White cardstock to attach to the top and bottom of the Crumb Cake. This card was inspired by Heather Cserni.

Snow Much Fun in Blue

This another card I made with Snow Much Fun and the Lace Ribbon Border, but this time I used the colors Night of Navy and Bashful Blue. Blues are my favorite colors.

Snow Much Fun

This is a set from the new Idea Book & Catalog for 2011 called Snow Much Fun. Snowmen sets are a favorite of mine. The colors I used are Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke. I love the new Lace Ribbon Border Punch.

Flower Garden

This card was made with the Flower Garden embossing folder. Then I colored it in with Pear Pizzazz and Pacific Point. The stamp set is from the Summer Mini 2011, called Fabulous Florets.

This is the set Sail Away from the Summer Mini which is still available until the end of August,2011. I used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder through the Big Shot on the Whisper White cardstock. I used the 1 3/4" Circle Punch on a piece of 3" x 3" piece of copy paper to use as my template for the sun. Then I sponged in the circle hole with Daffodil Delight and then Pumpkin Pie. I used the same for the reflection in the water. I used Baja Breeze for the sky and Marina Mist for the water by using different sponges. Then I stamped the sailboat with Early Espresso onto the front of the card. I stamped it again on a piece of white scrap and cut out the sails and attached with dimensionals.
