TSOT 556 using Die Cuts

 I haven’t used this stamp set for a while, it’s called what could be better. I used one of Stampin Ups new in-colors, Orchid  Oasis.  I made my own stitched square frames. Are used the stitched squares that is retired from Stampin Up.  I inked up the small stripes embossing folder before I ran it through the big shot. 

I’ll look forward to seeing everyone’s take on this sketch 😊

TSOT 555. Pastels

 The last few challenges I have pretty much done my own thing. Not following either of the cards sketch or the suggested theme. This one I tried to follow both 😊.  I had some cut out pieces from this stamp set- Shaded Summer. Decided to use them on this card so I paired up the soft succulent and silver with some blushing bride and petal pink.

This is an easy sketch to follow, I hope to see some of your creations, pastels can be so lovely. This was a fun one to do thank you for coming to see my card. Let me know what you think, it’s nice to hear from someone once in a while.

New Catalog 😁

 Bleaching #5 Starry Sky
   Starry Sky bleached out to a pretty teal tone. Thought this piece of DSP world look good bringing out the lighter/ brighter blue but after putting together I wasn’t crazy about it.  It was all put together though so here it is.

New catalog 😊

 Bleaching #2. Tahitian Tide

Tahitian Tide  bleached out to a pretty vanilla shade.  I cut 3 of the wreath Die from the Sun Prints bundle and stacked them up. Wanted to keep it pretty simple to not take away from the wreath so all I added was the sentiment.  The background was stamped with bleach and Tahitian Tide ink.

New Catalog time!!🙂

 Bleaching #1. Orchid Oasis

I was watching a video on YouTube and the demonstrator did some bleaching on the new In Colors. I thought they were so pretty I decided to try my hand at making a card with each of them.   You’ve got it this is the first one - Orchid Oasis. It bleachers out to a pink tone, I paired it up with blushing bride and it seemed to need very vanilla not basic white, what do you think?

TSOT 554. Floral

A dear friend from one of my card classes and her husband celebrated their 50th anniversary on April 29th.  A special card was needed so I sent them a card with a vase of flowers that will never wilt inside it.  You can find the tutorial on splitcoast stampers  -pop up vase card is the name I think.

The vase flattens when the card is closed and pops out when opened, it’s not hard to make just a little tricky.  


TSOT 591. Fun panel card

 Our technique this time is layering. I decided to not follow the sketch and just do some layering. I’m not sure this is what they really me...
