CQC109 Thanks!


Hi Stampers! 

I was not totally pleased with the way the radish card (see details below) turned out using the CQC109 colors so I decided to take off the vanilla satin ribbon and front panel to salvage the card (I will save the front panel and ribbon for another card in the future). 

This is a basic "Clean and Simple" (CAS) card and was extremely easy-I already had the layered embossed panels, so I added a few punched embossed squares and a bit of ribbon, stamped the Triple Treat Flower in Pumpkin Pie and Island Indigo Classic Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and used the coordinating floral punches to punch out the flowers, added a pearl for the center and viola the card is finished! 

Stamp Sets:  Triple Treat Flower, Absolutely Fabulous

Ink: Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie

Cardstock: Very Vanilla , Island Indigo, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler

 Accessories:  Big Shot™, Embossing Buddy®, Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Folder, Punches- 1 1/4" Square, Fancy Flower and 5-Petal , 5/8” Pumpkin Pie Satin Ribbon (retired), Pearls

I hope this inspires you to remember that there are no mistakes in stamping- just learning experiences :-)  Experiment and have fun!!


Hi Stampers! 

I decided to create a card using the colors from this week’s CQC109 ColourQ Challenge are a great combination- love the retro feel!  Again, the Design Team and other entries look fabulous- if you have the chance, check them out!    

Since I had the embossing gun out from my last card, I decided to incorporate embossing into this card as well….

To create this card:

Ink the background stamp, Well Worn with Soft Suede Classic Ink and stamp onto Very Vanilla.  De-static the Very Vanilla with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the radish image with Versamark® ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.   Use Sponge Daubers to apply Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler and Island Indigo Classic ink to the image.  Gently wipe off the embossed image, trim and spray with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (mixed with 70% alcohol).

Stamp the sentiment with Island Indigo and assemble the layers.  Add the 5/8” Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon bow and pearls to finish off the card. 

This card really sparkles in real life and was a bit difficult to photograph:-)  I hope you like it!  

Stamp Sets:  Homegrown, Retired Sets- Well Worn (background), Absolutely Fabulous

Ink: Versamark®, Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede

Cardstock: Very Vanilla , Island Indigo, Soft Suede

 Accessories:  Big Shot™, Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder, Sponge Daubers¸Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Folder, 5/8/” Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Pearls

Thanks again for stopping by to visit- I hope you have a blessed Sunday!

What a lovely card, Julie! Good use of the colors. I am amazed at what you did with a radish stamp, I always wondered about that set! Thanks for the lovely words on my blog. Have a great day! Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week.

I really like them both, Julie! Hate to tell you that after you took the other one apart, but that main panel with the layered stamping technique is really cool! I love that kind of stuff. :) The texture on this second one is great. Thanks for playing at colourQ this week! :)
