DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #195-In the Meadow

#195

 

Here we are, back for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. This week it is a sketch pad challenge. I seem to do better with these. I think I strain my brain to hard if I have to come up with a layout. LOL I love using In The Meadow for masculine cards. I also used Rose Wonder for the sentiment. This set has so many beautiful sentiments. I also got to use some of my Crumb Cake satin ribbon in my stash.

I used the new adhesive strips to pop up around the square panels.

Zoo Babies Gatefold

A co-worker of mine will soon be having her little bundle of joy. She knows she is having a girl. The colors she picked for the nursery are pink and gray. The theme is elephants. The elephant in the retired set Zoo Babies is exactly what is in her layette. Well wouldn't you know it---I don't own it!!! I know, I know, hard to believe, right? Well, my friend Elizabeth came to the rescue. She owns it and let me borrow it to make her card. Thank goodness for friends who help you out in a pinch!!!

I also used a couple of other retired items. Sometimes you just have to use what you have!!! I did use the new stamp set Badges and Banners for the sentiment along with the Duet Banner punch.

Olympics Inspired Seaside Shore

As stated in a previous post, I so enjoy watching the Olympics. In fact, I am glued to the TV. Watching them, I noticed the colors --- Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi and Pumpkin Pie. The colors are so SUMMERY, just yummy in my opinion. I actually made two cards. To make these, you take your piece of Whisper White cardstock and just sponge on the different colors to your liking. Then ink your stamp with VersaMark and emboss with white embossing powder.
