We always do Make & Takes at our monthly Stamp Shares. Jennifer had us make this gorgeous card in June. We used the Picture Perfect stamp set, which just retired.



Colors: Copper, Early Espresso, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White

What a great combination of old and new products!

Sorry For Everything Dog Sympathy

 A good friend of ours recently lost his chocolate Lab, so of course I made a card to send to him. This stamp set works for so many occasions. The embossing folder is not Stampin' Up! My sister found it for me "since it has dog stuff on it". This was the perfect combination!


It looks like all of the embossed images are debossed (pressed in instead of raised) but they are not! Here's a close up so you can see they are raised!



Colors: Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso (pencil), Very Vanilla

Happy Birthday Thinlit In Black & White

After making the In Color striped Happy Birthday card for the June Stamp-A-Stack, I came up with the brilliant idea of making it in black and white. And cutting the happy birthday out of the strips so I could alternate them. It took awhile, but I got them done!




Here's the mess I had when it came to putting the tiny little pieces back inside the die cut piece:


They turned out kind of cool, but I will NOT be doing that again! I don't recommend trying this unless you really like a challenge!

More Lemon Zest

These were the first two cards I made before I decided to do the watercolor wash background on the card I shared yesterday for the June Stamp Share and Stamp-A-Stack. I inked up my "E" stamp block, spritzed it with water and then "stamped" it on my cardstock. I also used Wink of Stella on the lemon which just didn't look quite right. Notice the different sayings on the insides- I love this set!



First attempt with Tempting Turquoise which ended up a little dark:




Colors: Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
