july cards

I wanted to share the cards we made at the July Creative Card class. This one is very simple using a half sheet of Whisper White cardstock, punch out the oval with the large oval punch, then emboss the oval with the oval embossing frame, mark where the image goes lightly with a pencil then stamp the image in Stayzon, then color in with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. Tie a knot with the Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon. Finish it off with the wish big stamp from Word Play (120308 wood, 120651 clear) in Stayzon. 
Super simple.

This card was CASEd right out of the new catalog (page 113). I made it into a regular sized card. Theirs was a 6x3 card. I embossed with the rectangular frame embossing folder in the middle of the card, sponged over it with crime cake ink, and added a rectangle cut from Midnight Muse cardstock into the center of the frame. Then I punched out two scallop ovals from the First Edition DSP, then attached a piece of crochet ribbon to the ovals with dimensionals. I ran Very Vanilla cardstock through the Big Shot with the Apothecary Accents Framelits, the I stamped the flower image from Elements of Style (118611 wood, 120045 clear) in Soft Suede ink and then colored in with the Rose Red and Old Olive watercolor crayons and blended with the aqua painter. Stamped the "for you" image in soft suede. 

Finish it off with a spritz of Champagne Shimmer Paint (116806) and alcohol for that extra sparkle.

This one was very easy. We used Perfect Plum as the background, layered with Basic Black and Very Vanilla. I ran a piece of Perfect Plum through the Big Shot with the oval embossing folder, and then cut it out with the Labels Collections Framelits. I stamped the leaf image and the greeting from Just Believe (116948 wood, 120453 clear) in Old Olive on First Edition DSP and punched it out with the large oval punch.

I love the embossing frames. They give your projects that little extra something.

I hope you will join us for the next card class on August 15 at 6:30 p.m.
