My first card today pairs my new Text Block die with Betsy's Plaid Builder set.
Next, I stamped an Enchanted Evening panel with the pinstripe lines from the Plaid Builder set using VersaMark to give a subtle tone-on-tone appearance. Then, I die cut a Text Block: Dad shape from a piece of Xyroned Simply Chartreuse cardstock and adhered it to the Enchanted Evening panel. That piece needed a little extra pop, so I inlaid the "ever" with Fresh Snow Linen before mounting the focal point to the card front with foam tape. Dad + Plaid = Bromance.
My last card today is a note for a friend featuring A Second Helping Of Sunshine.
I began by die cutting a circle from a panel of Fresh Snow Linen cardstock. I stamped my sentiment below the circle and textured it with the Chicken Wire Impression Plate. Then, I stamped the little cherry scene onto a Fresh Snow Linen card base. I used Ombre Builders to ground the bowl of cherries, stamping it in Spring Rain a couple of times to add depth. The bowl was then stamped in Ocean Tides and the cherries were Rock 'n Rolled in Autumn Rose and Scarlet Jewel.
Next, I stamped the scalloped border from Be Happy in Autumn Rose along the right edge, adding a narrow strip of Scarlet Jewel to really define the edge. The sentiment/chicken wire panel was then added to the card front with foam tape to finish it off. This card, with the colors and the chicken wire, has a little bit of a country vibe that I think works well with the images from A Second Helping Of Sunshine. I hope you agree!
Well, that's it for me for this release. Make sure to check in with Nichole, Amy, Ashley, Betsy, Dawn, Heather, Laura, Laurie, Maile, Melissa, Erin, and Lexi to see what they have up their sleeves today. I'll see you again soon!
