For All You Do


Create with Connie and Julie

Wow!  Thank you for your response to Create with Connie and Julie!  Julie has a wonderful joy fold card on the Preview today!  Check it out (scroll down past the intro to see the new posts) and then sign up…we have lots more exclusive projects coming your way over the next eight weeks…and the cost is less than a dollar a day for all those ideas!

I have been BUSY with preparing for my craft fair this weekend, too.  I don’t know why I wait to the last minute.  Probably because it always seems like a long way off…but now it is here!  I did get a lot done yesterday and have my "game plan" ready for today.

Today’s card is one I made for last week’s Late Night Stampers challenge to "Chalk it Up!"  I used one of my favorite "go to" stamp sets, For All You Do.  I love it paired with Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper…the colors are so bright and cheerful!

I started by stamping the flowers and stem with Versamark ink on Whisper White and then rubbed Stampin’ Pastels over top of the Versamark.  (Did you know that Stampin’ Pastels come in ALL 48 exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors PLUS neutrals?)  This technique is called Poppin’ Pastels.  I showed you the Falling Leaves card last Friday that used the same technique.  The centers are Crushed Curry dots punched from the large side of the Crop A Dile. The Whisper White was layered on Rich Razzleberry.  

I took a layer of Melon Mambo cardstock and added a 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 square of Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper on the bottom part.  I stamped the little flower from For All You Do in Melon Mambo ink across the top.  Then wrapped the Crushed Curry Polka Dot Ribbon from top to bottom and added a knot at the top (actually you are seeing the back of the knot…before I adhered the one end, I turned the knot backwards.) 

I stamped the words, For All You Do…, in Rich Razzleberry ink on Whisper White and punched it with my 1 3/8 circle punch.  That was layered on a Crushed Curry Scallop Circle Punch piece and I pierced the scallops with my Paper Piercing tool.  I popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals  The entire front element was then placed on the base card of Rich Razzleberry.

Enjoy!  I’m off to my studio for the rest of the day…thanks for stopping by! 

And a special hi to my wonderful hubby…today is our
