Got the Blues?!
Sometimes getting the blues can be a good thing. For this card, I partnered up Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo and Pool Party with Basic Black and Whisper White. Definitely one of my favourite colour combinations.
Making a collage card is easy, peasy with the Touches of Texture stamp set. I simply stamped the flower in Basic Black ink across the Whisper White card stock. TIP: Remember to always start and finish off the edges of the card stock.
Next, I over stamped the flowers with the blue centers. This set was very forgiving and I didn’t worry about being precisely centered or even in the same direction.
I love using Vellum card stock on my cards as an accent. Do you have some in your paper stash?
I stamped the Suite Sayings Stamp Set greeting on the vellum with Basic Black Archival ink and allowed to dry for a few moments before adding a White Perfect Accent coloured with a black Sharpie marker. Be sure to colour the accent while it is still attached to the packing sheet so you don’t get marker on your card.
There are a few textured backgrounds to choose from in the Touches of Texture stamp set.
Can you see the two different images I selected? One is more of a splatter and the other more of a canvas or fabric finish.

Dapper Denim is one of the five new In Colors for 2016-2018. For this card, I paired it with the Swirly Birds photopolymer stamp set which is also available as a bundle.
I created the tag with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and added Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon. I then added the tag to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
And copper is back! I love this new embossing powder and there is metallic thread to match.

This card was quick to make with the Balloon Celebration Bundle that includes the stamp set and Balloon Bouquet punch. I also used the retiring Birthday Bouquet Designer Series paper. Once I selected the paper, I kept the same colour theme for the balloons.
I attached the punched balloons with Whisper White Twine and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This card uses the retiring Circle Card Thinlits and a stamp set I am going to miss a lot, Summer Silhouettes. The Circle Card Thinlits makes it so simple to create flip cards and it’s on sale. Yeah!
I added a Bitty Butterfly punch adorned with a Rhinestone to the front of the card and included stamp panels inside. The greeting is from One Big Meaning and is punched with the 2" and 2-1/2" circle punches that were then layered.

The back of the card features one of the Summer Silhouette flowers that was also circle punched.
