Simply Fabulous Simply Sent Kit

Chalk Talk Lace Tape Card


I had so much fun playing with three colors of the new In Color Collection - Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar.  Doesn't it even sound yummy??? 

There are several new products I used to make this card:

1.  Chalk Talk Bundle (Chalk Talk Stamp Set & Framelits Set) - SAVE 15%
  • #132731 (wood-mount) $43.25
  • #132730 (clear-mount)  $37.25


2.  Big Shot Magnetic Platform (must-have tool)  #130658  $39.95


3.  Delicate Details Lace Tape
  • #130966 $9.95
  • set of 2 self-adhesive tape

Have you used this gorgeous tape?  Look at this beautiful border on the bottom of my card.  I learned this technique at Leadership by Shelli and finally tried it out.  It's so pretty!  Here is how I did it:



I adhered a strip of Lace Tape along the bottom of my card.  Using the Lace Tape as a stencil I carefully inked over the tape with a sponge dauber and Crisp Cantaloupe ink pad. 


 
Before removing the tape, I wiped off the excess ink on the tape with some paper towel. 



Then I carefully removed the tape.  YES, you can use the tape again!!!  Make sure to save the protective backing to stick back to it.  I use a clear stamp case (119105) to keep my used tape neat and nice. 


4.  Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper, #130144 $10.95
 
5.  3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim
  • Pistachio Pudding #130020 $8.95 (10 yards)
  • Crisp Cantaloupe #130021 $8.95 (10 yards)

Mosaic "Rhinestone" Madness Embossed Card


Here is a card that I started making and finished totally different than I had imagined in my mind!  Have you done that before???  I am happy with the result though.....  It's so pretty!!!



I started with the background piece (Whisper White).  I inked one side of the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder with Pool Party ink using a brayer and then ran it through my Big Shot.  I stamped one image from the Mosaic Madness Stamp Set 6 times on Whisper White card stock in Pool Party and punched them out with the Mosaic Punch.  I love the idea of placing the punched images on the embossed background piece!  I also filled the other spaces with small flowers.  Don't you love the rhinestones too???
