Baby Blue

This is such a cute set with so many little pieces that fit together so well! Everything is slightly sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake and Marina Mist. The little hanging banner things are Marina Mist ink, stamped off first before stamping on the scene so it isn't as dark!

Portrait Silhouette

I wanted to make a monochromatic card with this set however I ended up adding some River Rock to the Top Note die cut panel with the Parlor Prints background stamp. The black cardstock behind it is Vintage Wallpaper texture but it's hard to see. I again inked up the top of the Designer Frame with Crumb Cake ink before embossing it to give it that shabby look! Very Simple card!

Pastel Celebrate Baby

This is my shabby version of a baby card! I love this Domestic Goddess paper with it too, this paper is so versatile plus it has the new colors in it....Love it! I used the paper-piercing tool around the scallop frame and then connected the dots with the white gel pen. It's hard to see the white faux stitching around the frame but it added some detail to the card! I sponged all the edges with Crumb Cake ink.
~Stamps: Little Additions, Parlor Prints.
~Paper: Shimmery White CS, Pink Pirouette CS, Domestic Goddess DSP.

Masked Circle Bird

This was a fun card that sort of just came together! The background is watercolor paper stamped with the Netting background stamp using Pool Party ink which actually adds even more of a texture look! Don't ask me why I stamped this on watercolor paper?'s a mystery to me why I do some of these things...BUT I liked it so I then added the flowers using Soft Suede ink. The bird was stamped with Suede ink on Shimmery White CS and punched out and then sponged with Pool Party ink and then sponged around the edges with Suede ink. The Branch was inked up with Lucky Limeade Marker and punched out and then sponged with Old Olive. I cut out the scallop circle using the Scallop Circle #2 die and Pool Party CS.
For the center circle that is masked; I cut out a 3" Circle  using the 3" Die and Shimmery Wt. CS. I cut out an extra 3" circle on scrap CS and then punched out a 2-1/2" circle with the punch on scrap CS. I placed the 2-1/2" Scrap circle centered on the 3" scrap circle and traced around it and then lined up the 2-1/2" punch on the traced circle and punched it out, this created a mask to lay over the main circle for stamping. I then stamped the Netting and sponged around the mask lightly on the main 3" circle with the same colors and stamps to match the background.
All layers were lightly sponged with Soft Suede ink.
The Scallop with the Vintage brad in the middle is the new Lace Ribbon Punch. I cut out one scallop and then added a 1" punched white circle behind it and a brad in the middle...something different with that punch!
~Stamps: Language of Friendship, Netting.
~Paper: Pool Party, Soft Suede, Watercolor Paper, Shimmery White CS.
~Ink: Soft Suede, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Old Olive, More Mustard marker.
~Accessories: Big Shot, Scallop die #2, Circle 3" die, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Lace Ribbon Border Punch, Lace Trim, Vintage Brads, Dimensionals, Sponge.

Shabby Chateau 2

Another Shabby card using Etablished Elegance set and Beau Chateau DSP! I love the styles of these two together along with the Tulip Frame Embossing Folder! For this embossed frame, I inked the inside of the folder with Crumb Cake ink before embossing the frame, it really gives it that Shabby look! Again all the layers were sponged with Crumb Cake ink and the two circles I cut out instead of punched so that they would be closer cut to the edge of the stamped area. The circle stamp in this set is somewhere between 1" and 1-1/4" circle! Drat it no punch for that! The edges of the Tulip Frame is just sponged with Crumb Cake ink!
~Stamps: Established Elegance.
~Paper: Whisper White CS, Pink Pirouette CS, Beau Chateau DSP.
~Ink: Regal Rose Marker, Lucky Limeade Marker, Crumb Cake Pad, Soft Suede Pad.
~Accessories: Big Shot, Designer Frames Folder, Sponge, Lace Trim, Mini Brads, 1/16" Circle Punch.

I traced around the the embossed frame with the fine end of the Pool Party Marker.

Shabby Chateau

Awe, I love the shabby/vintage style and Established Elegance set just goes so well with it!
I stamped on the white lined Beau Chateau DSP with Pool Party, Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral inks. I also sponged all the edges of all the layers with Soft Suede ink, which ties it all together so nicely! The base card and embossed frame are on Shimmery White CS as well as the dress form that's cut out! I love that this paper has both white and vanilla backgrounds which make the lighter layers really 'pop'.
