Here are a couple more cute new things featuring stamps from the NEW 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue. You might recognise some of the stamp sets from the 2008 Spring Mini or Summer Mini!
I used my Markers to ink up the pretty flower so the colours would echo the groovy "Good Morning Sunshine" DSP. I love the DSP in this new catalogue!
Here's a card using the pretty stem from Embrace Life which I stamped with Stazon then coloured with my blender pen using ink from the lid of the Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red ink pads, to match the PP and RHR cardstock. The sentiment is from Fresh Cuts, framed by some Styled Silver Hodgepodge (yes, it's in the new catalogue!) which perfectly matched the small oval punch. I have a few birthdays in the family this week, so I think this one will do the job.
This uses the tulip from Garden Whimsy, and the sentiment from Fresh Cuts. The background is En Francais. I used the new in colour Riding Hood Red and Chocolate chip ink and cardstock. Love this red! In fact, I have a large collection of red shoes, handbags and lipsticks - so it isn't really any surprise that I'm drawn to this colour.
This card is a CASE from the SALE-A BRATION catalogue - but I've used pink pirouette , Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red cardstock and changed the sentiment. The buttons are unfortunately retiring Earth Elements buttons. I've embossed the flowers in white and stamped the middle panel with Versamark. It is a little hard to tell that the pink panel also has a white embossed flower - in real life it is quite easy to see.
This is another CASE from the SALE-A-BRATION catalogue with Polka Dot Punches. I love the soft combination of So Saffron and Bashful Blue. Because I've made this card as a New Baby Card I also used the "Congratulations" set from Sale-a-Bration on the inside, as shown:
I sometimes forget that one of the best sources of ideas is in fact the catalogue - which is WHY it's called an "Idea Book and Catalogue". Duh.
Now to make some co-ordinating wrapping paper and mail out the birthday cards!
