Colorful Seasons — Ready for Summer??

I know it’s still Spring but who’s ready for Summer???
I have a very fun card to share today.  This card was on a display board
at OnStage last month.
Colorful Seasons Bundle and Color Theory Designer Paper from Stampin' Up! Annual CatalogIsn’t it fun!!
The card was made using the Colorful Seasons Bundle and Color Theory Designer Paper.
The designer paper has some fun, fabulous textures for backgrounds — you are going to love playing with this paper.  You will find so many ways to use the Colorful Seasons stamp set — this lawn chair is great.
Hmmm… like Adirondack chairs better, not a problem just use the framelits to cut that chair out and attach it to the tag.  This is a must have stamp set — and, you only have to wait 9 more days to order it.
Oh, wait, I almost forget the fabulous Glitter Enamel Dots — they shimmer (yay — Tammy, you are going to love these little babies).
I hope you are tucking some money aside so you are ready!!!!

Eastern Palace – To Think of You

I’ve been playing with the Eastern Palace Bundle items while waiting for the new Annual Catalog to be available.  Don’t forget the special bundles with extra FREE items are available for just a short time yet.  Today’s card started with the designer papers which helped me pick Tranquil Tide cardstock for the card base.  I added a layer of Gold Foil Sheet to mat the designer paper, then I added more patterns of the designer paper.  The greeting is stamped with Tranquil Tide ink.  I used the Eastern Medallion Thinlits to cut the starburst from Dapper Denim cardstock.  Isn’t the Gold Vinyl Sticker in the center just adorable.

Eastern Palace Designer Paper with Tranquil Tide cardstock and Gold Foild SheetsWith such an elegant card we just had to decorate the inside a little too.  I added a 1/2″ strip of the Dapper Denim designer paper to the bottom of Very Vanilla cardstock.  There is plenty of room to write a note to the card recipient.
