Good morning and Happy Friday to you!! For today's card I pulled out the new Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper from the new Occasions Catalog. The two patterns coordinate so well! I used the colors in the papers to pull out my card base (Tangerine Tango) and bottom layer (Baked Brown Sugar) colors.
Then I inked up the See Ya Later stamp set (coming soon with Sale-a-bration!) with Stampin' Write Markers. It's okay if the ink dries before you get done coloring the whole stamp, just 'huff' on the stamp a few times to moisten the ink again and stamp! This stamp works wonderfully wit the Stampin' Write Markers! I added a little knot with the Natural 5/8" Chevron Ribbon. I love that it adds interest while still being neutral and allowing the stamped image to maintain center stage :)
Once I was done I decided to add a bit of bling with some Gold Sequin Trim. The gold looked pretty but did not stand out well against the background so...Candy Dots to the rescue! I chose Candy Dots in Tangerine Tango, Bermuda Bay, and Daffodil Delight. The colors in the paper are Coastal Cabana and So Saffron but I chose colors just a bit deeper and richer to add a bit of 'pow'.
Then I cranked out a custom envelope in Baker Brown Sugar with a matching liner with the Envelope Punch Board! It's one of my favorite new tools, I use mine with almost every card now!
What's your favorite tool/product? I think my top three are the Big Shot, Envelope Punch Board and Candy Dots!
