Everything used in today's post are from Stampin' Up! My first 2 cards feature my brand new "Just Believe" stamp set! It arrived the day before I left for vacation, so I could hardly wait to get it inky! This card has a Peach Parfait card base, and Greenhouse Gala dsp. I used my peach parfait and pear pizzazz markers to color the main image. Three punches came in handy...modern label, corner rounder, and scallop edge punch. I struggled a bit, but tied a real bow with my daffodil delight 1/8" taffeta ribbon!!
The same image is on this square card, but in soft suede. I pulled out Elegant Soiree dsp and my large scallop circle Big Shot die. My smaller scallop punch is actually at my office for that baby card project, so I used the 1-3/8" circle punch poppd up on dimensionals, with a small loop of white taffeta ribbon colored with a soft suede marker.
My next card uses a retired sentiment stamp, but everything else is available in the current IBC. The colors are cherry cobbler, basic black, and very vanilla. I sponged cherry cobbler ink over the panel run through my Big Shot with Fifth Avenue Floral embossing folder. Satin ribbon and pearls add a nice feminine touch.
Finally, I used familiar stamps (Inspired by Nature, Flight of the Butterfly and Teeny Tiny Wishes) with NEW colors: Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso, and Wild Wasabi. I kept it very simple, with just a small butterfly from the Beautiful Wings embosslit die and daffodil delight 1/4" grosgrain ribbon as finishing touches.
Hope you like these! Now, time to look at my birthday list to see where I need to send these!
