Happy Memorial Day to those in the U.S.! Today I have another couple of cards to share in the something old, something new category.
I'll start with the something old card. This card uses several patterns from the Storytime Designer Series Paper. Love these patterns! So cute and trendy. The apple stamp is part of the Perfectly Preserved Clear-Mount Stamp Set, and I die cut both the apple and the stem using the Cannery Set Framelits Dies. I really love this set and dies, so I'm going to keep them in my stash! I'm sad they aren't going to be in the new catalog, so get yours while you can. The medallion for the apple was made using the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch from Riding Hood Red Cardstock (a retiring color), the 1 3/8" Circle Punch from Wild Wasabi Cardstock, and a 1 1/4" Circle Punch from the also retiring First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper (which is already sold out). The greeting (Thanks Teacher) is stamped in Riding Hood Red Ink (also retiring) and Basic Gray Ink using the Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set which is a current item.
Now, for something new! The stamp set is a new hostess set called Banner Greetings, and it is stamped in Melon Mambo and trimmed out with scissors. The patterned paper rectangle is from the new Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper. The banners are pieces of awesome new washi tape from the Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape! I especially love the floral pattern in this set of tape, and I also love that they are all slightly different widths. So pretty!
Here is a close-up of the cardfront.The patterned paper is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals, and the banner is popped up above that on additional Stampin' Dimensionals and attached with Tombow Multi-Glue to a flat-tooth pick. These are great for attaching to cards as they don't have any sharp points and lay flat so they attach more easily to the paper surface.
Also, for this card I started with this great sketch that I had pinned from Retro Sketches.
Well, that is all for today! Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to join us this Wednesday for another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. I'll be giving away some blog candy to one lucky commenter, so be sure to stop by then!
