Come Sail Away with Smooth Sailing Dies

Come Sail Away (p 144), with coordinating Smooth Sailing
Dies (p 195) is elegant and lends itself to so many techniques.
In this example, so sponged color and then placed the
sail boat in the forefront.  The Tufted 3d Embossing Folder
was used to add texture to the cardfront, as was a bit of
rope made out of the Smooth Sailing Dies.

On to Adventure with See a Silhouette

I mentioned humor in my previous post and this is
another set that lends itself to humor or serious commentary.
This image from On to Adventure, on page 28, just cracks
me up because she could be every middle aged woman,
who has a crazy streak.  The other images from this set
don't slack either, when it comes to putting a smile on my face.
 They are a lot of fun to color with Stampin' Blends.

I added a layer from the See a Silhouette DSP on page 166,
because she is likely having a hot flash.  The sentiment comes
from Tasteful Textures on page 135.  This set comes with
coordinating dies and is a wonderful combo.  I cut up the
sentiment, so that I could scatter it around the "little women".

Over the Moon with Well Written Dies

So who is a fan of cute cows with a sense of humor?
I really enjoy the new sets that use puns, word plays and
humor, because they really fit my family's personality.
These cows, from the Over the Moon set on page 32,
are just delightful.

I added some other elements to lend a farm feeling
to this card.  The grass comes from the Well Written Dies
on page 196.  The Highland Heather layer was run
through the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing folder
and then sponged with VersaMark.  It all seemed
to work together!
