Life’s Short

Hi! Playing with new product today!  It’s the Lemon Zest Bundle!  I am also playing along with Global Design Projects – CASE the designer – #GDP092

Stampin' Up! SU! Lemon Zest, Eclectic Layers

This is such a refreshing bundle to play with – and perfect for summer!  The lemons are stamped in Daffodil Delight and punched out with the coordinating punch.  The leaves are stamped in Old Olive.  The layer behind the lemons is die-cut using the Eclectic Layers framelits and from the new Lemon-Lime Twist card stock.  My sentiment is colored with a Basic Black marker (the actual stamp has the words on two separate lines – but I wanted it to read across to match the layout for the challenge).  The Designer Series Paper behind the Lemon panel is from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper stack.  This is then layered on Old Olive.  I used the Thick Whisper White for my base.

I didn’t take a picture of the inside (I need to remember to do that) but I did stamp the sentiment Squeeze it for all it’s worth in Basic Black.

You will find all the products used for this card in my on-line store!

There you have it – hope you enjoy the fresh look of today’s card!  If you decide to play along with this week’s GDP challenge – please let me know!

Thanks for stopping by!

Jelly Fish

Hi! Today I am playing along with this week’s Global Design Project challenge which is to create a card with a Nautical Theme – #GDP047

I pulled out my From Land to Sea set and decided to get inky with some sponging.  I was having so much fun, I made 2 cards.  First this one:

SU! From Land to Sea, Picture Perfect

I used the Embossed Resist technique for my jellyfish.  To do that, follow these steps:

  1. Ink Jellyfish with Versamark and stamp on Whisper White card stock.
  2. Apply Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with heat gun
  3. Sponge Pear Pizzazz in random areas.
  4. Sponge Bermuda Bay in and around the Pear Pizzazz
  5. Sponge Tempting Turquoise in any remaining white spots and lightly over the Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz ink
  6. Go back and add Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay until you have a water look that you like.
  7. Take a clean paper towel and wipe off any ink on the Jellyfish.

For the sentiment on this card, I embossed using White Embossing Powder on Basic Black cardstock.

I had so much fun getting inky with the above card, I decided to make another card:SU! From Land To Sea, Vertical Greetings

The jelly fish panel followed the same steps as above.  I decided to go with a smaller panel so that I could use my Vertical Greetings stamp set for the sentiment.  I also added some “bubble” sequins to my water.

Hope you enjoyed today’s cards!  Thanks for stopping by!
