Sail Away!!

I am totally in love with all things beachy and nautical. Today's card is one that I made for a turquoise and brown swap on SCS hosted by Angela. It combines the color combo with my love of the sea. All products used are from Stampin Up! unless otherwise noted.
 I chose Temptingly Turquoise for the the card base. The "Sail Away" stamp was stamped with Choc chip ink onto Very Vanilla and cut into an oval with my nesties. I also used a label Nestie in Creamy Caramel under it. I sponged the edges of the Vanilla with Baja Blue and the edges of Creamy Caramel with Choc. Chip. I placed a strip of Baja Blue under that with a strip of Chocolate Chip along the bottom. I stamped "For You" with Versamark and used Temptingly Turquoise EP. Then I chose a Baja Blue cordoroy button and tied it on with twine.
 All that was placed on a very Vanilla card front and attached to the base. I really like the way it turned out. LMK what you think!!!

Vintage Winter card

I made this card as my first attempt at a Vintage card. I used a digi that I found ages ago and unfortunately don't know the creator of. If anyone recognizes it, please let me know.
I used Copics to color her, then mounted her on Pretty in pink SU! CS. Then I took Very Vanilla cardstock and used the side doily punch to decorate each side. I sponged both the VV and the area around the vintage girl with Baha Breeze. I attached all those layers to Rose Red then to a Baha Breeze card.
I used Very Vanilla seam binding to make my bow, then attached a lovely hat pin to give it that vintage feel. Hope you like it!!!
I really enjoyed making it. I hope to explore more vintage items soon!!!

Hi all!!

Long time no see!!! It's been a little crazy around my house so I've not posted in forever. But that will change. I'm hoping to start posting at least weekly so you can see all I've been doing!! So here is my newest post. It's going to be entered into my friend Lauren's blog for her wonderful blog candy. She's been making the most beautiful rolled roses and I want to win some!!!
This was my first attempt using the fabulous flower Big Shot Die from SU!! Love it. As you can see my flower is a bit flat, so I hope to play around with it and see if I can make some 3-D flowers with it for future posts. All the supplies for this card are from SU!. I used Cherry Cobbler and Chocolate Chip CS as well as some Very Vanilla. I also used DSP from SU!'s amazing selection. The stamp is also from SU! as well as the lovely seam binding ribbon--Love that stuff!! I hope you like it!!!
