Tip Top Touches of Thanks

Tick Tock…Tick Tock…the countdown is on! We’ll be saying goodbye to the 2015-2017 In Colors in two short months, so to remind everyone of how beautiful this collection is, today’s cards feature 3 of them – Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe.  I felt an organic card would work best with these colors and I’ve been holding onto this set called Touches of Texture for the perfect time. So happy I bought this set! I wonder if it will make it into the new catalog?  The font of the sentiments in Rose Wonder is perfect for this style. And always pay attention to the little details – I used a sponge dauber to add Mint Macaron ink to the Very Vanilla Lace Doilies. Love it!

High Tide Compilation

I just love the High Tide set in the Occasions catalog. It’s perfect for masculine cards…and we all know masculine cards are the most difficult! I just love sponging and the background of the sand, water and sky are perfect for showcasing the sponging technique.  As you can see from the photo, I cut my round stamping sponges into fourths and staple a little handle on top using the coordinating color of cardstock. As a resident of Southwest Michigan, just a few miles from beautiful Lake Michigan, I can tell you right now that this is definitely going to be one of my go-to sets!
