Summer's A Coming!

My next Stamp Camps are June 2 and 3, so I'm sharing the designs with you.

Introducing the new In Colors for 2012-2014. This card is a direct copy of Mary Fish's card with only one addition using the dotted scallop ribbon border punch using Midnight Muse added to the left side of the card. I cut my own pennants as I don't own the pennant punch (yet). Used 1/2" circle punch on top of the pennants. Also used Midnight Muse ink for the Congratulations. Thank you Mary for your incredible designing talent!

Isn't this a cute Father's Day card? This design came straight from Denise Bergman with thanks, but I added my own twists. Used Naturals Ivory cardstock and stamped the Packed for Dad stamp using Crumb Cake to enhance the background. Then using retiring Poppy Parade cardstock, I put Versa Mark on the retiring Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates (diamonds). Ties were stamped with Early Espresson, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Riding Hood Red.

I've been wanting to try the heart bride and groom for a while.
There are many version of this card on Stampin' Connection but my inspiration came from Teri Stewart's layout. My twists on this card are heat embossing with white powder using the Elements of Style set and tying my 5/8" black satin ribbon bow using a meat serving fork. That trick worked slick!

This card has old and new products. Thanks to inspiration from Sue Kremer and Frenchie Martin on SC. This card uses Primrose Petals, Pink Pirouette, Gumball Green, and Whisper White papers. Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green ink. Retired Lacy Ribbon Punch and Pretty in Pink tafetta ribbon. Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. Decorative Label Punch plus Pearls.
