To my Best Friend…

Hello Stampers!

Sorry about the “repeat” … still a little new at this blogging – lol

Today I want to share with you, the beautiful new 2013-15 In-Colors!  Well, I have 4 out of the 5 for you on this quick and easy card.

The base of the card is done in the “Baked Brown Sugar”.  Then the 1-1/2 inch by 3-1/2 inch strips are: Pistachio Pudding, the “Strawberry Slush”  in the center, and finally the “Coastal Cabana”… a place we all want to go!  Maybe with that Strawberry Slush that has one of those little umbrella’s in.

Do you think  Stampin’ Up! already had these colors in mind when they were planning the Caribbean Cruise Incentive trip!

OK … back to stamping!  The Coastal Cabana is a touch greener than my picture turned out… hmmm.  Guess you’ll just have to come over and see it for yourself.

The cute little greeting is from the “Label Love” stamp set and it has a coordinating punch (130920) Artisan Label punch.

I actually stamped twice in the two colors … punched out the black, and cut out the Strawberry Slush and popped it up with our Stampin’ Dimensionals.

So … How do you like our new colors?  Let me know, I’d love to hear from you!

Oh, and come back tomorrow because I will be showing you the 5th In-Color … the yummy “Crisp Cantaloupe”.

Summer’s Coming…

Hello Stampers ~

Today I wanted to share a fun scrapbook page I did a while back, but he is so cute I had to share!

Such a quick and easy page to do.  You will need the Extra Large (119859) Oval Punch, the Large (119855) Oval Punch, and the Owl Builder (118074) Punch …. I used that for his eyes.  You will also need the 1″ Square (124094) Punch to create his legs and punch the ovals to make his claws!  I used circle and star punches to create the sun.

Although the alphabet used to create my title is no longer available… I suggest the “Notable Alphabet” – it’s fun and would look great on this page.

The waves are created using your favorite blue tones: I suggest Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, and Bermuda Bay!  Even sounds like the ocean!  The background (sky) is the tempting turquoise and the sand … Crumb Cake that was sponged to make it look more like sand.

Tear and layer the remaining blue tones and sponge the edges with Whisper White Craft Ink to create the illusion of waves.  I also gently sponged the clouds with the White Craft Ink.
