New Catalog Workshop pictures

The Melon Mambo ice cream is made by kissing the ice cream (inked up with Melon Mambo) to the line stamp, and then stamping on Whisper White card stock. I embossed it with clear embossing powder to make it shiny. Looks yummy, huh?!

The folded part in the middle can be any size square. This one is 3 1/2" x 3 1/2". I love that new Cajun Craze card stock!

Early Espresso is yummy, even to a non-coffee drinker like me! To make the sparkle, I mixed shimmer paint with a spritzer bottle of hand-sanitizer. You can also use rubbing alcohol and shimmer paint in a spritzer bottle, but it's a little bit stinkier. The base of the card is made with Crumb Cake card stock, which used to be called Kraft.

Stamp the flowers with White Craft Ink, then the outlines with black (I used Staz-On Jet Black.). Add a little texture with the Color Spritzer Tool and a marker. The red is the new Cherry Cobbler card stock.

Happy Stamping!

Quick and Easy Cards!

My inspiration for this card came from here. I didn't have the DSP, so I just used pieces of card stock. I used the Birds and Blooms dies and the Big Shot to make the flowers. I love the way it looks, and it was quick and easy!

I LOVE this new hostess set (Because I Care). My inspiration for this card came from here. To make the watercolor look of the flower, I inked up the stamp with Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive markers and stamped on Watercolor Paper. Then I used my AquaPainter to mix around the colors a little. To make the corners on the bottom, I stuck the Elegant Eggplant card stock into the side of the round tab punch. I used the Color Spritzer Tool and my Old Olive marker to add a little something to the Old Olive card. It was a quick and easy card!

Happy Stamping!
