We all love a good sketch, don't we? This one is such a good one that I made two cards using 3 of the new In Colors! I couldn't decide which one to feature but think I like this one a little bit more: Oh my goodness, this new In Color--Sweet Sugarplum--is beautiful! A soft shade of purple that looks fabulous with some of the other beautiful new In Colors--Emerald Envy and Peekaboo Peach. I die cut a large circle from the Sweet Sugarplum base and backed it with a piece from a new DSP stack called Playful Palette which features all these new In Colors.
The sentiment banner--in Emerald Envy--is from a new hostess set called Time of Year. The sweet little flowers are from another new set I featured last week--Swirly Bird. They are tone-on-tone stamped in Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum and I found out the 1/2" circle punch pops out those flowers quite nicely!
The main sentiment is also from the hostess set, Time of Year, and heat embossed directly on the DSP with black stampin' powder. A lovely shine to it!
So here's my other card! I had great fun with the Swirly Scribbles dies and Swirly Bird stamp set. The Pool Party base is a nice compliment to another new In Color--Dapper Denim. Really like this one too--it's a cousin to our long-lost Not Quite Navy which I also adored. The little sailboat is totally customizable as the two sails, boat and flag are all separate stamps. Many options to play with!
I wanted the "waves" to look like they were shining with the sun rays so I added a brush of Wink of Stella under the die cut. I also brushed on a few lines with a Soft Sky marker to add a little shadow under the "waves".
I hope you've enjoyed my cards today! Do pop over to The Paper Players and check out the rest of the Design Team and their inspiration. I hope you will play along with us before the challenge closes on Friday, May 27th at Noon (PST)...thanks for stopping by!
