Happy Friday, Everyone!
A new background stamp called "Definitely Dahlia" was calling my name when I first looked through the new SU catalog. It is a realistic looking, beautiful stamp -- and makes for an easy, yet gorgeous card. I also LOVE the new Watermelon Wonder In Color. It is a vibrant pinkish red color -- but not too pink. Truly a watermelon color.
This first card is one we will be making at my upcoming New Catalog Open House. I paired it with Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake. That spectacular little butterfly is from a new set called Watercolor Wings that has a matching set of new bold butterfly framelits. This stamp set is a three step stamp set -- you can get a three tone butterfly by stamping three different images on top of the other. For simplicity, I only stamped two images with this butterfly. But, the possibilities with this set are really incredible. Another fun, have to have product used on this card -- the banner triple punch. Easily punch perfect, matching flags with this punch -- which has "slots" for 1", 1 1/2", and 2" strips of paper -- all though you can punch any size up to 2" pretty easily, I've found.
Other products used on these cards: Memento Black ink, Watermelon Wonder ink, Crumb Cake ink, Basic Rhinestones -- colored red with a Sharpie, Linen thread, stamp sets: Definitely Dahlia, Gorgeous Grunge, Endless birthday wishes, and Me = Grateful.
