Guy Greetings with Adventurebound DSP

Guy Greetings made it into the new catalog (✿◠‿◠)
Here are some cards made using that set and the adventurebound paper stack that is GONE 
 We made this one in May for club, I will be sending mine to my Dad for Father's Day.

 This uses vellum as an overlay with a piece cut out of the middle as a highlight! Love this look.
 Love this sweater look
 I used Open Sea for this card, I thought the blue paper 
looked like water. The happy was cut out of an ad when I was first trying out my Hello You thinlets, blended perfectly.

 I wasn't seeing so well doing this at night and thought this dsp had a brown tint, so used Early Espresso ink. In the daylight the paper is more grey, oh well.

Another Love is Kindness card

Sad this is gone now, such a fun stamp and easy to color. This is similar to another card that I posted a few months ago, but in a different color. I also added a piece of doily. The stripes are made with a stamp from Painted Petals, also gone-more sadness:(  If you look closely you can see that we used an aquapainter to fill in the background with Blushing Bride

Berry Basket of Flowers

This is another card that we made for club in April. It uses one basket piece and one top edge piece. It is folded so that it stands up. There is a piece of whisper white with the flowers that pulls out for the sentiment and message. The Crumb Cake basket is stamped with hardwood in Baked Brown Sugar. The flowers are from the FLower Patch Bundle with stamps and framelits. We only had to cut out the thin flower on the top in Strawberry Slush, all the rest were framelets. Colors are Pool Party, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, and Crushed Curry.
Of course I had to add a butterfly from Papillon Potpourri.

Celebrate Today and Bokeh technique

We made this card at club in April. I'm pleased to say that it this stamp set has carried over into the new catalog. YAY!!
Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, and Coastal Cabana are sponged on my card front, then I added circles with white craft ink for the bokeh effect. I love the confetti overlay stamp for the balloon, but it covered up part of the "HAPPY", so I used a marker and just colored part of the confetti. Note how the confetti for both cards is a bit different.

 One of my customers added the birthday stamp to the balloon and I liked that idea. Bermuda Bay sequins made a perfect string for the balloon with a few stray sequins for embellishment.

One of the last of the Texas cards
The background for this card is made using the 3 lines stamp from Painted Petals. I made several of these cards using different colors 
while we were on our Texas trip, but gave some of them away already before I took pics. A really easy way to add dimension is to stamp, color, and cut out a few blooms and pop them up with dimensionals. I did not do that with this card, but did with a 
few of the others. This card uses Coastal Cabana with some Bermuda Bay accents. Notice the shading using the lightest 
of the Coastal Cabana blendabilities.

Another Texas card, perhaps you noticed that many of them were monochromatic. I think it worked out that way due to the limited supplies that I took, but I do like the look. 
 The card base is Coastal Cabana with a Bermuda Bay layer and butterfly. Stamped images are from Best Day Ever, another SAB stamp set FREE with a $50 purchase. Coastal Cabana ribbon from Best Year Ever Accessory Pack adds the finishing touch. I used the smallest pearls colored with Coastal Cabana Blendabilities for the flowers. I love the random dots for the background.
