On to some stampin. We made several cards at the Open House the other day. This one features the 2011-2013 In Colors that were just brought out by Stampin' Up! As always the colors are available in Cardstock, Ink, Markers, Ink refills, and a variety of designer paper and accessories. For this card, I used a Wisteria Wonder card base under my Whisper White stamp area. (Pardon the photo--I will try and upload better ones when my computer returns). The flower/leaf stamp from the "My Friend" stamp set was done in a two tone effect with Pool Party and Lucky Limeade Classic Inks. The sentiment, from the same stamp set, was done in Calypso Coral Classic Ink. To add a little decoration I used the Paper Piecing tool and made holes around the tail and "h" of the image. The strip at the bottom was punched with the ever popular Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch. The brad there is from the NEW 2011-2013 In Color Designer Printer Brads set. You get 8 brads of each of the 5 new In Colors.

The first project in the series was a birthday card. The Faux Mother of Pearl technique was used on the background paper. The cupcakes were stamped onto scrap paper and punched out with the Cupcake punch. A few dimensionals and they really jump off the card. The pom pom trim was in the Occassions Mini and is sadly not available right now, but Stampin' Up! has a lot of brand new ribbons that they just added to the New 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog. Check them out HERE.
To learn techniques like the faux Mother of Pearl, consider hosting your own workshop with family and friends or joining my stamp club.
Colors: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Early Espresso

Our church has been doing special things for all of our parishioners who reside at the Veterans Center the last couple weeks. Some people have been asked to visit them, others to make cards, others to say a special prayer or dedicate a mass service to them. We randomly drew names from a basket with what task to do.
Wouldn't you know it, my task was to make our veteran a card. I made this card today in honor of the 4th of July for our veteran. My husband took our oldest to the Veteran Center to deliver the card and visit another member we also selected from the basket. The technique used on the card background is inlaid embossing. This is done with the Big Shot and an embossing folder.
Stamps: Land of the Free (Summer mini catalog)
Colors: Night of Navy, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Confetti White (Card Base)
Accessories: White Wide Grosgrain Ribbon (Retired), Big Shot, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Star Punch (retired)

Thanks for viewing my blog today and to all our service men and women for their dedicated service to our country.
