Window Frames

This card is another IN Color creation but only using the Framelits in all the colors and filling the blank space with a Sentiment.  Another Call me Clover card base with a White mat.  These colors really pop off the card and I used Tombow to adhere them.  Not much wiggle room on these so when you put them down, they stick! 


My Sentiment should have been a bit lower, but did not want to start over!  I should have used the Stamparatus!!  Did you get yours yet?  What are you waiting for!!!  You could add Rhinestones, some of the new Vine ribbon, I have it but cannot find it!! 


 And the IN Color cardstock is available in a bundle so you can get all 5 colors, 4 sheets of each!

Kaleidoscope Window

This Square of Vellum really reminds me of that Kaleidoscope we had as kids.  You looked thru the tube and twisted and the colors went crazy!!  That was hours of entertainment for me and maybe why Color and Crafting are such a part of my life.  I used ALL the 2018-2020 IN Colors for this card.



There are 2 pages of these squares, so you get 8 squares!  I love how these 5 colors play so well together!  Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove, Blueberry Bushel, Lovely Lipstick and Call Me Clover on a Call Me Clover card base.  I added a White mat embossed with the Layered Leaves.



I backed the sentiment with some Blueberry Bushel.  Love this Stamp set and ALL the possibilities!



Definition of kaleidoscope

an instrument containing loose bits of colored material (such as glass or plastic) between two flat plates and two plane mirrors so placed that changes of position of the bits of material are reflected in an endless variety of patterns

Stumped for DAD?

Dad's can be very hard to buy for......I mean how many Ties, Shirts and Coffee Mugs do they need?  The Age of the Gift card has made it much easier to get something for Dad!  Try a Bass Pro Gift Card, Top Golf or Jack Stack BBQ?  How could you go wrong with those and of course a Manly Card to deliver the Gift Card in!



I started with a Crumb Cake card base, 3 X 5 1/2 panel of Wood Textures designer paper framed in Early Expresso card stock cut 3 1/2 X 5 1/2.  I used the Stamparatus and Soft Suede ink to stamp the Stump.  Inked up several times and stamped for a Nice Dark image!  



I then cut leaves and used the Template to stamp on the leaves.  This Bundle has leaf embosslits, these are so cool.  Cut your leaves first, stamp and then add the Texture!


Line your leaf up with the framelit and then run thru the Big Shot and look at those lines.  Love this natural look!


Here is a picture of My Dad in his element pitching Horse shoes.  Hug your Dads, Grand Dads and ALL the Special Men in your life today and everyday!  Miss you Dad!!!

Painted Glass

WOW another AWESOME Bundle in the New catalog and the Vellum is a MUST have!  I made 3 cards with one 6X6 piece of Vellum.  Colored with the Regular Markers.  Here is my first card using 1/2 piece of a Vellum Panel trimmed to 5 1/2 X 3.



I love Vellum and finding something to show thru and compliment the design is a BONUS!!  This Background stamp says Thank You in may ways and languages.  I inked up with Grapefruit Grove and placed my card stock on the Stamp and pressed.  I purchase the Clear version of Background stamps because they are less expensive and you can leave the stamp in the case.  Ink up and apply paper to Stamp.


I colored the back of the Vellum with Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive Markers.  Used a thin Bead of Tombow adhesive at the top and bottom to adhere.  The Butterfly was stamped in Pineapple Punch and cut with the Framelits.  The Sentiment was stamped in Black and popped up.
