Here’s a retirement card for my boss who is retiring this week. I cased myself and used THIS card for inspiration. 😉 The flowers were created by inking up the base stamp in Pool Party ink, stamping off once on scrap paper and then stamping on Whisper White cardstock. The “highlight” stamp was stamped in full-strength Pool Party ink. I then stamped the highlight stamp again in VersaMark ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for added sparkle. I was struggling with the sentiment and was going to use a “congratulations” stamp, but then on a whim (and a little bit of desperation) I did one last search of the catalog and found there IS a “Happy Retirement” stamp in the Teeny Tiny Wishes set! It was the perfect size and font for my card!! It makes me so happy when a card comes together just how I want it to! 😉

Congratulations, Cathy!!! ❤

Welcome to the Control Freaks March 2013 blog tour! We’ve created projects celebrating Spring and Easter. If you’re following the tour, you’ve just come from LeeAnn Greff’s blog.

Here are my two projects!

PROJECT #1 – Paris in the Spring


Here’s my take on “Paris in the Spring”. I tried to keep the card light and airy-looking by using mostly white with splashes of pink and black. The center panel measures 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″. I stamped the script background from French Foliage (such a pretty stamp set!) in Crumb Cake ink at the top and bottom and then stamped the “splatters” in Melon Mambo ink (I stamped off twice before stamping on the panel). The panel was then sponged with Pretty in Pink ink to help it stand out from the background. The tiny butterfly is from the Collage Curios stamp set found in the spring mini.

Stamps: Artistic Etchings, Stippled Blossoms, French Foliage, Collage Curios

Paper: Whisper White

Ink: Black StazOn, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Crumb Cake

Accessories: Fancy Fan Folder, Big Shot, 3/4″ Circle Punch, Melon Mambo 3/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon,Tea Lace Paper Doily, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Sponge

PROJECT #2 – Happy Easter


Here’s another mostly white card using Pool Party and a little bit of So Saffron and Wild Wasabi accents. The flowers were made with the second smallest flower on the Blossom Party Originals Die. I applied Dazzling diamonds Glitter to the center of each flower with a 2-Way Glue Pen. The polka-dotted oval is actually vellum cardstock — love the effect of embossing this type of cardstock with SU!’s embossing folders! The bottom corners of the card were rounded by using the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch.

Stamps: Delightful Dozen

Paper: Whisper White, Pool Party, Vellum Cardstock, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi

Ink: Black StazOn

Accessories: Fancy Fan Folder, Perfect Polka Dots Folder, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Folder, Ovals Collection Framelits Dies, Blossom Party Originals Die, Big Shot, 1-3/8″ Circle Punch, Bird Builder Punch, Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button (Pool Party), Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Stampin’ Dimensionals

My big box of new SU! stuff arrived Thursday night and I’ve been spending the afternoon creating cards for an upcoming class. The new Ex Libris background stamp is so gorgeous! I love it! In addition to the Ex Libris stamp, I also used the new Stippled Blossoms stamp set, which reminds me quite a bit of the retired Roses in Winter set. My camera never captures it, but there is Dazzling Details on the rose.
