elements of style #4

ok, by now I'm sure you can tell I really like this set. I actually stamped 4 of this image on a single sheet of confetti white cardstock, then watercolored them all different colors. I thought this summer sun and old olive combination felt like a "simple" card, so I left it pretty plain. I think the image really stands on its own and doesn't need too much embellishment.

elements of style #3

I love the new elements of style stamp set in the SU! summer mini catalog. I was doing some watercoloring on confetti white cardstock, and love the roses that have this color combo, so I made up mine with cameo coral and summer sun. I'm sure going to miss these 2 colors!

elements of style #2

while I was playing in the stamp room with the elements of style stamp set in the new summer mini catalog from SU!, I started cutting random pieces apart, and tried this card. I used lovely lilac and old olive, and the scallop trim border punch from sale-a-bration, which will be around in the new catalog in july! yay!

elements of style

I woke up early this morning and decided to spend a little time with the new elements of style stamp set from the summer mini catalog from StampinUp!. I used confetti white cardstock and black staz-on ink so I could water color with the aqua painter. on this card I used rose red and old olive. I cut the completed image into 1 1/4" squares and mounted them on old olive card stock and rose red cardstock. I used the melon mambo ribbon to complete this card. what a great new set!

easter baskets

in addition to the rag bags that are so popular, I got some easter fabric and made small easter baskets for the kids of coworkers. I didn't tack or "x" the individual panels, since I didn't think these were going to get the use that the regular purses do, so they went even faster. my coworkers are sure that the kids will be carrying them around as spring purses for awhile, and that makes me very happy. I used ribbon from last year's SAB stuff for the handles, and also one striped one (that was my favorite). super fun and quick and easy.
