Soft Summer

By | June 11, 2009

Today's card uses the lovely Soft Summer Stamp Set from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  In checking my stash of cards, I found out that I've used this stamp set at least 20 times!  I knew I loved this set, but I didn't realize I had used it that many times! 

I decided to use the Taste of Textiles with Elegant Eggplant which had been embossed with the Stampin' Up! Backgrounds 1 Textures Plates.  Before embossing, I lightly spritzed it with water to making a deeper impression on the card stock. 


 I also used the Stamp-ma-jig to line up the solid stamp with the outline. 

  • Cut base card stock 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
  • Cut Taste of Textures 5 1/4 x 4
  • Cut Elegant Eggplant 4 1/2 x 3 1/4
  • Lightly spritz with water then emboss using the texturz plate
  • When that has dried, adhere Elegant Eggplant to Taste of Textiles and type bow as shown in picture
  • Cut Very Vanilla card stock 3 1/2 x 2 3/8
  • Color outline image with Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers and stamp on Very Vanilla card
  • Color solid image with Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers and stamp over first image using the Stamp-ma-jig
  • Cut Elegant Eggplant 3 5/8 x 2 1/2
  • Cut Taste of Textiles 3 3/4 x 2 5/8
  • Adhere all 3 layers together
  • Adhere all layers as shown in picture
