Another Summer Afternoon

This is another card from the Summer Afternoon Hostess set.  The base is Whisper White with Baja Breeze as the first layer.  I added a piece of Comfort Cafe as the background.  A pop of Cajun Craze that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Houndstooth Folder to match the texture of the background paper.   I did a double bow with our 1/2" Seambinding Ribbon and the fabulous bow maker.  Thanks for looking and I will showcase a new set later this week.  Take a minute today to do something that makes you happy.

Summer Afternoon Sampler

Summer Afternoon is one of the new Hostess sets, it can be purchased for $10 with a $150 order or workshop.  Item #126427 Clear or 126425 wood ($14) and is a set of 4.
I used Very Vanilla for the base, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze and a bit of DSP from Comfort Cafe'.  I wanted to soften the card so I rounded the edges of all the layers with the Corner Punch.  I used the Scallop Trim Border punch for the Starfruit layer and colored the image with  
Stampin' Write Markers.  Hope you enjoy.

Triple Time Stamping

This is my verison of a card/techinque I saw on Dawn Olchefske's website.  It's called Triple Time Stamping and makes a fast and easy WOW card for any occasion.  I have done this card for several occasions with different colors and each have a different look.  For this card I used Creative Elements (122647) and  Fabulous Phrases (120501).  The paper is Whisper White and Basic Gray and ink was Basic Gray and Melon Mambo.  I finished it off with Rhinestone Basic Jewels  and a piece of Organza Ribbon. 
The measurements are White 5.25x4, 4.25x3, 3.25 x and a piece for inside 4x 5.  Basic Gray for base 8.5x4.25 folded, 4.5x3.25, 3.5x2.25. 
I hope you enjoy the card and stay tuned for some cards using our Hostess set Summer Afternoon.
Remember to do something every day that makes you happy.
