I'm up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog today!! =) I've made two cards using the New Vegetable Medley Stamp Set and I just CAN'T Get enough of it!!
I just LOVE the Sweet Images and that there are SO MANY Uses for them especially this time of year!! I was thinking how FUN its going to be to make Little Tags too, once the Veggies are ready to Pick!! I can add them to the Bundles I give away and I just KNOW they'll get LOTS of SMILES!! =)
For Today's Cards I wanted to make a Shaker and showcase the SWEET Sentiment "You Make My Heart Skip a BEET"!! I just LOVE it an thought it would be FUN to make a Heart Shaped Shaker and I Stamped and Embossed all of the Images onto a Distress WaterColor Paper for my Card Base with the Beet Images and then added some of the Sweet Music Note Clusters and a Pair of Head Phones!! I used my Distress Markers to Water Color the Images and I just LOVE the Combo of Mahogany, Seedless Preserves and Worn Lipstick!! It is such a Vibrant and Realistic Color to the Real Beets!! =) I then used Shabby Shutters and Cracked Pistachio with alittle Moss for the Dark Hightlights!! I LOVE this color that I got!! Then I used Pumice Stone for the Background and I just LOVE the way it turned out!! I used the Largest Heart Die from the Memory Box Heart Dies Set to create my Shaker Window and then A few Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and my Card was done!! =)
Mask-erade Online Card Class and I was SO BUSY during the Class that I didn't get to Play Along, but I wanted to try some of the FUN Techniques so I thought it would be FUN to create a Row of several Vegetables for my Card Front!! I Stamped and Created Masks from some Post-It Tape and then I Stamped and Embossed my Row of Veggies!! I had to practice several times before I got the Perfect Combo and I really thing it turned out Neat!!?? I wanted to create some depth so I opted to Fussy Cut around the Images and then add them to another Card Base that I Die Cut using an MFT Stitched Rounded Rectangle Die!! I then Stamped and Embossed the Let's Veg Out Sentiment and then I created the Stitched Card Base with the Largest Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rounded Rectangle Die!! I used some FUN Stripped Paper from Crate Paper and I just LOVE the way it makes the Veggies POP!!
