Simple Wonderful Tulips


Have you tried the Irresistibly Yours DSP yet?  LOVE IT!!!  It is white embossed images on white 12" x 12" cardstock — so cool to use just as it comes but better yet, you can color it any color that you want and the embossed images stay white while the rest of the cardstock is colored.
Simply WonderfulThe base of this card is Pear Pizzazz with a layer of Soft Sky and then a layer of Whisper White.  The bottom of the White layer is a piece of the Irresistibly Your DSP that I used a sponge and Pear Pizzazz ink to color — so cool.  I used Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi Blendabilites to color the tulips and stems.  I used the lightest shade in the Skintone Blendabilities to color the "newspaper" just a little bit for some added depth.  I added some Soft Sky 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon and a knot on the right side and last I made a small bow using White Baker's Twine.

Remember you can get a package of Irresistibly Yours DSP when you place a $50 order.

Vellum Love is Kindness


Blendabilities on vellum cardstock — that's what we did for this card.  How long has it been since you used vellum cardstock?
Blue DotsThe base of the card is Soft Sky, then a layer of Basic Grey and a layer of Best Year Ever DSP.  I stamped the tulip image with VersaMark ink and embossed with Black Embossing Powder.  I colored the tulips using the darkest Soft Sky Blendability.  I colored, let it dry, then colored it again to get a dark shade (the color is much lighter on the vellum).  The stems are colored with the Wild Wasabi Blendabilities.  Since snail or glue dots show through when using vellum I used Mini Brads to attach the vellum to the Whisper White cardstock and adhered this to the Basic Grey layer.  Last I tied a small bow using White Bakers Twine and adhered with a Glue Dot.

Love is Kindness Birthday

I have fallen in love with the Love is Kindness stamp.  Here is the second card we did in the Stamp of the Month Class.
Happy Birthday Wishes
The card base is So Saffron with layers of Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi.  This time we stamped the Tulip image on White Shimmer cardstock and colored the image with Soft Sky Soft and Wild Wasabi Blendabilities.  I stamped the Happy Birthday Wishes from Petite Pairs stamp set also on White Shimmer cardstock, punched out with the 1 1/4" circle punch and mounted on 1 3/8" circle of Wild Wasabi carddstock.  After adhering the Wild Wasabi rectangle to the Soft Sky rectangle I wrapped Wild Wasabi 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon around it and tied with a piece of White Bakers Twine. 

Don't you love to color and shade with the Blendabilities?  What is your favorite color of the Blendabilities?
