ETA: somehow I thought I'd set this to post on Friday. OOOPS!
I'm a big fan of pistachio anything - I munch away on the nuts, but Pistachio Crunch Cookies are my favorite!! Pistachio Pudding is yummy, but it's especially delicious with Crisp Cantalope. You might wonder if I'm hungry for a mouth-watering treat.
My treat is lovely, but it's for my eyes as the NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog was delivered to my home today. And with NEW stuff in the house, I got to play! For me, the new catalog is all.about.color. I love the color refresh and all the luscious new color combos we can create with. Inspiration plus!
My card today is for Fab Friday today, where we had this layout for our challenge.
I have to confess that I made a card yesterday with the sketch, but it was just TOO tempting not to make it over in the new In Colors. Here's the debut of Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe!
I just know this soft cool green will be one of my favorite new colors. Especially paired with the blues!
I created two different monochromatic backgrounds. The small panel is easiest to see where I ran the card stock through the new Modern Mosiac Embossing Folder and then inked the raised part with VersaMark ink for added depth.
The larger panel was stamped (only in some areas) with Craft Ink on the Netting Background stamp. Next, it was embossed with clear powder, and I still smudged a bit of VersaMark here and there. I wanted a clean card that was just a tiny bit "messy", you know?
Hope you'll play along with us!
