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!

Birthday Bones

I apologize for my long hiatus. For those that don’t know me personally, my 20 year old son, Marcus, decided to join the U.S. Navy. I have been an emotional wreck seeing him off (that happened last week, July 7) and every time I walk past his bedroom (can’t bring myself to close the door). I need to get out of my funk. What better way than with stamping, right? Sometimes we need to close off our minds and not actually think.   Today’s card does just that. I decided to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) my own card from exactly one year ago from Marcus’ swearing in ceremony last week.  You can see the post from July 7, 2015 here “Camo and Banners”. Hmmm…camouflage. It’s like I had a premonition…

Sending Love

I just love the softness of Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Dijon. It allows the Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder to absolutely POP against them! And I can’t say enough about the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits… they are perfect with the Sunshine Sayings stamp set. There are so many options with this bundle and you can save 10% when you purchase them together!  Don’t forget to use the Magnetic Platform and Precision Base Plate to get perfectly cut dies…and the magical Die Brush to get all the little pieces out without grief!

Camo & Banners

I have a coworker that asked me to make a Birthday card for her to give her Son-in-Law.  I naively asked if he had a favorite color or hobby.  He likes camouflage and guns.  Why do guys have to be so difficult to stamp for?  So, here is my version of a camo card.  She was specific on what she wanted it to say, so I printed the words on my computer using the Stencil font.  I really like the new Triple Banner Punch.  I used the Tip Top Taupe banner as a template on the burlap ribbon to achieve the same degree of point on it.  Just used the cuts-like-buttah Craft Scissors.  What do you think?  I’ll find out tomorrow if she likes it…

Serene Hunter

Today I am showcasing a card that Hunter designed.  I am amazed at the transformation of the Tip Top Taupe with the sponging.  The purple hue of it disappears with the Night of Navy and Mint Macaron.  She softened some of the edges with sponging and produced a beautiful sympathy card:
