First I ran the Soft Suede through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. Then I ran the Confetti Cream through the Top Note, then ran THAT through the Herringbone Textured Plate. Then I sponged the edges of the confetti cream (base of the card, die cut, greeting). I ran the sponge across the die cut gently just to get the top of the herringbone.
Clear as mud? I hope you like it!

Sometimes when MO & JO have left for a mini vacation and you have to make some cards, the next best thing is to CASE!! I tell you what, looking through all those cards can really inspire you. And you know what else? You can CASE something and it never turns out EXACTLY like the other card. But they have chosen the template, the colors and even the stamp set to use...what else do you need? So this is my version of Lisa Young's card. See her blog here.
I didn't have the same stamp set so I used Elements of Style instead. I wanted water color but with the image only being one stamp, I had to color with markers then spritz with water onto the inked up stamp. Then I stamped onto the Kraft carstock. I rewet it and stamped again and used that image to punch out.
Then I created my own spritzer by using 1/3 of the bottle with water, adding 6 drops of chocolate chip reinker and 1 drop of frost white shimmer paint. Loverly! Someone told me that instead of water, try using rubbing alcohol.
So I hope you like it as much as I do! Give it a try and see what you come up with!
This is an upclose shot of the butterfly. Purty huh?

This set is called Elements of Style. GOREGOUS HUH?? Take a look at page 12 at what Stampin' Up! did. I started with basically the same colors but took off in a completely different direction than they did. I used the ink pads and the aqua painter to get the water color look. I really LOVE IT!
Stamp Set: Elements of Style (#120045 clear)
Cardstock: Whisper White (#100730), More Mustard (#100946), Mellow Moss (#102898)
Ink: Creamy Caramel (#103220), Mellow Moss (#102774)
Accessories: Aqua Painter (#103954), Sponges (#101610)
Next is another sample from the Summer Mini on Page 12. I couldn't figure out how to get the top note layered then I decided to cut where the perforation is and voila! It worked! Then I sponged the edges then curled them with my nail.
Picture at an angle so you can see the ribbon.
