CCMC101 New Catalog Sneak Peak

This card is an entry in sketch challenge CCMC101 over on 

It is also a SNEAK PEAK OF NEW SU 2010-2011 PRODUCTS!!

This is the new set, Friends Never Fade, featuring 2 of the new
colors, Cajun  Craze and Cherry Cobbler.  They are YUMMY!!
The new colors are paired with Old Olive and More Mustard.

AND CHECK OUT the embossing folder used on EVERY bit
of the cardstock on this card.  It is the NEW Vintage Wallpaper
Big Shot Embossing folder.  It is so pretty!

The focal image is mounted on the new 2 3/8 inch scallop punch.
This punch provides a beautiful layer for images 
punched out with the 1 3/4 inch circle punch, so that you can 
"fancy up" those larger images.

The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set and cut out 
with the word window punch.  Add some Satin Old Olive
ribbon and you're good to go!

Elements in New Colors

This card uses 4 of the new colors...  Pacific Point, Cherry Cobbler,
Espresso and Cajun Craze with the Elements of Style Summer Mini Set.
This is actually a CASE of a graduation card in the Summer Mini!

If you need stamping inspiration, it often helps to look at 
samples in your minis or catalog.

I hope that you enjoy it.

Arpicot Teal Watercolor Trio

This is another Watercolor Trio (Summer Mini) card.
The colors for this card are Apricot Appeal and Taken With Teal.
I used markers to ink up the images and then stamped
on Whisper White.  I then ran both pieces through the Big Shot
Finial Press embossing folder and mounted on Taken with Teal

The card base is Apricot, with an Apricot ribbon.

I hope that you had a great Memorial Day.

Memorial Day T-Shirt

Paula Achaerbigler did a very cool t-shirt with the motorcycle
from the  summer mini on the front.  That gave me the idea for this
Memorial Day T-shirt card.

I used the large oval punch to cut out the neck and arm holes
in a Brilliant Blue card base.
I also cut out large oval real red slivers to accent the arm holes.
Punched out 3 stars and added gold brads.
The Whisper White band was stamped with "Thank You" 
from the Upsy Daisy set.

Assemble and this card is done.
