I was playing with the new Typeset DSP yesterday and while I was cleaning up my area I thought I would use the paper with the Mojo Monday 353 sketch. I love this paper. I thought the new Traveler Stamp Set would work well with this Designer Series Paper. I could not wait to use the "And Many More Stamp Set". Did you see this stamp set in the new catalog, I think it is going to be one of my favorites. I love it when the sayings and punches work together. I usually would use this stamp set with the Word Window and Modern Label Punch but I think the Ticket Punch works well too. I did heat emboss the train with some black embossing powder. I had to add some retired black ribbon to finish the card. I hope you like it.
What images run through you mind when you think of summer? Does it remind you it's family vacation time, picnics or camping? Do you think of those sweet summer outdoor parties or the over-abundant blooms everywhere?
This month the design team has created projects based on what reminds them most of summer. Projects include a 3D summer basket bucket list, a 3D camping project and lots of beautiful floral images and a mouth-watering picnic idea.
Here's a couple Altered Composition Notebooks I made yesterday. The first one is for me and the one below is for my husband. The top one I used the new Typeset Designer Series Paper...which I LOVE! The thinnest of the paper is nice to work with to cover these notebooks. I topped it off with some retired Black Satin Ribbon and Textured Real Red Cardstock. I had to pull out the retired Lovely Letters Stamp set to monogram the notebook for me. Before I covered the back flap, I attached a piece of ribbon to the top inside to use as my bookmark for the notebook. I liked the way it came out.
My husband liked it and wanted one for himself. For his I used the Maritime Designer Series Paper on the outside and some retired Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper. I used the 7/8" Cotton Ribbon for the bookmark and to cover the seam.
Don't forget now is the best time to stock up on those composition notebooks.
The card on the top was my finished card. I started with the bottom card and just did not like the Daffodil Delight as the card base. It is just too bright for my liking. I made sure I took a picture before I took it apart and changed the card base.
It has been awhile since a played with a current sketch, so I took the time to play with the Mojo Monday Sketch 353.
I pulled out the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set. I love to watercolor the images using my aqua painter and ink pads. I was inspired to play with Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz. I did use some of the retired Pear Pizzazz ruffled ribbon, I love that ribbon.
