I hear from so many people that there just isn't enough time in the day, and I have that same problem. But, I just had to make time to play with the new stamp sets in the Stampin' Up! 2012-2013 catalog.
For this card, I used the Everything Eleanor set. I love the flourish stamps in the set and everything looks good in black. The focal color is Summer Starfruit one of the new 2012-2014 In Colors. It's in between Yellow & Lime. I love it!!! I watercolored the flower & cut it out and covered it with Crystal Effects. Here is a close up...
On Saturday, I participated in a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Shoebox Swap. I have told you all about these swaps before...Demo's design cards and bring enough supplies for everyone. We then create each other's cards. What a great bunch of gals...thanks everyone!!!
So, here is the first of many cards I will be sharing from the shoebox swap.
Another sample using the Everything Eleanor stamp set. Also, this sample uses the Loving Thoughs stamp set for the sentiment, Colors: Summer Starfruit, Soft Suede, and Rasberry Ripple ink. Soft Suede ribbon. Also, used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Labels Collection Framelets, and 2 3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch.
Well, back to another busy day! I will share more projects soon...Thanks for stopping by!
