This is an elegant version of the Strip Card in my last post! These gorgeous papers are Ever Eden 12 X 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper #159996, limited edition to coordinate with Eden's Garden Bundle #157832.
The GOLD is sooo elegant!
These strips are 3/4" wide, but can be varied. Mount onto Gold Foil Paper. Start in the middle with 1 or 2 strips at an angle. Build out perpendicularly, leaving a small space between strips so the gold shows. Let strips extend beyond the edge. When done, flip over and trim off excess. It's fun. You might as well make several cards while you are at it!! TRY IT!!
Don't you LOVE a fun "Scrap Card Design?" We all have scraps. Don't waste them! These strips are 3/4" wide and can be varied!

Start in the middle with 1 or 2 strips at an angle. Build out perpendicularly. Let strips extend beyond the edge. When done, flip over and trim off excess. It's fun. You might as well make several cards while you are at it!! TRY IT!!
The season is changing!! Create autumn designer paper yourself!! These colors are: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake; Old Olive Marker for splatter. Base is a full sheet of Very Vanilla Card Stock.

Cut your designer paper and create cards! One of my easy, eye-catching layouts is this triangluar cut: cut paper 5-1/2 x 3", then cut corner to corner to create two triangles. Assemble as shown and stamp your sentiment in the center on the base card. Base card is Crushed Curry color.

I used the interesting Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate sheets #154574. The left one is Highland Heather color. The right one is flipped over to the silver side of the Mercury Glass Acetate.
I inked the flower image in Highland Heather and then "rolled" the edge of the image in Seaside Spray ink for a lovely realistic color combo. That is called the "ROCK & ROLL" technique.
I rarely make just one card at a time, so this one is varied from the other.
Cards this exquisite demand fancy envelopes! The top envelope has the flap covered in the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper #154570. The lower card I created from the same Designer Papers using the border print and here is how:
I LOVE a simply card with a touch of elegance! Art Gallery Bundle #156227 creates this lovely flower in Petal Pink & Blushing Bride colors. Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate #154557 makes a classy layer. I USED THE BACK SIDE FOR THE SILVER LOOK!!

What is BETTER than a Spectrum Ink Pad??? An UNINKED Spectrum Pad!! Build you own color combos for any season or occasion! How???
To select FIVE colors for your uninked pad, cut strips of cardstock colors and play till you find a combo you love and that fills your needs. I chose: Coastal Cabana, Lemon Lime Twist, Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo. Then grab your reinkers in those colors and create your color combo. BE SURE TO RECORD YOUR COLORS FOR LATER RE-INKING!! I wrote right on the back of the pad.
The cover of the pad has an indented slot where I added cardstock using Tear & Tape to label the colors, also. Colors at a glance!
For this card, I left the Spectrum Pad separated and place white cardstock on top of the pad. I rubbed the back of the cardstock till I started to detect the colors soaking into the cardstock from the backside. I stamped the sentiment and details from A BIG THANK YOU Stamp Set #147377 in Jet Black Momento Ink.
Lastly, I topped the layer with vellum. I love this card! Try it!!
There is nothing better than playing with NEW stamps!! I love to pull out a "suite" of products and just start creating.

This unique corner die is cut from the same designer paper as the envelope flap. There is ENDLESS versatility when you purchase an entire "suite" of products that the professional artists have designed to coordinate!!
NEW ink pad colors add so many more color combos for you!! This card features the products in the May Early Release Promo!
