Apple Blossoms

July 26th, 2010 , No Comments »

Good Morning Everyone – Hope your day is starting out mighty fine.  Today I have a card to share using the Level 2 Hostess Set Apple Blossoms #120139.  This set is soooooo cute.  I think the thing that caught my eye is the funky cute long stems.  My cardbase is Early Expresso  from our new Neutral Collection #119686.  If Choc Chip was one of your favs, you're gonna love this one.  It is much darker and richer.  My next layer is a piece of WW #100730 and I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on the right side #118402 for that extra special touch. Apple Blossoms Level 2 Hostess Summer Mini 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog My focal point is a piece of Pear Pizzazz #119795 and then another layer using Peach Parfait #119794.  Both of these colors are from the new In-Color collection for this year.  For my flowers I used an old method called masking.  It has been around for a long time.  I stamped my Peach Parfait flower first on a piece of sticky note and then placed it in the corner of my WW piece.  Then I stamped my Pear Pizzazz flowers where I thought they should be.  Removed my mask.  I then stamped my Peach Parfait flower on a separate piece of WW and cut it out using my Paper Snips #103579.  Great pair of scissors, they are super sharp and pointed so you can cut in close.  I then stamped my sentiment with Early Expresso Ink #119670.  For some added pizzazz I added  a piece of 1/4" Early Expresso Ribbon #120931 and also you will notice I added a Scallop corner.  I did this by punching a corner of Early Expresso with the matching scallop corner punch #118870.  I trimmed up the corner and put it up underneath my WW piece.  There you have it easy peasy.  Now it's your turn.  Thanks for stopping by and chatting today.  I have a full day of house cleaning you know how that its.  I spend most of my week end out in the yard.  We had mighty strong winds Saturday night and the front yard was full of branches and leaves.  Don't you just hate that.  It took most of Sunday morning to rake and pick them up.  Have a wonderful day.  See ya back here tomorow.  Toodles  Oh I forgot to mention the polka dots on my card.  As many of you know empty white space bothers me some times, so I took a white paint pen and added the swiss polka dots to the white areas of my card.  It is very soft and subtle but I do think you can see it even in the picture.  Always trying little things to perk up a card.
