I have been getting into the Cherry Cobbler mood lately and both cards below really show it. One shows off the new blendabilities markers and the other is a sneak peak at the new catalog.
This card came from an experiment with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities. I just on whim decided to try what this stamp would look like with some cool color gradation just on a scrap piece of paper. Well I loved it so much that I punched it out and made this card with it. I colored the entire image with the lightest color then added the medium almost half in and just put the darkest around the outer edge. The glimmer paper added a little bling to the sentiment. I love this flourish from the Everything Eleanor set and topped it off with a punched Cherry Cobbler butterfly with diamonds. It’s clean, simple yet very elegant. And I just love how the marker coloring makes the sentiment just jump out.

Now, even though it is July, we are closer to Christmas than we think!
So it’s already that time of the year where I start thinking about Christmas cards. Since I went to the Stampin’ Up! convention at Salt Lake City, I got a head start at working with the new holiday catalog that will be released for customers August 28th. I used the new stamp set Bright and Beautiful for the star and the sentiment. I really like that this set also comes with a sentiment for the inside of the card. I used a versamark ink pad to stamp the star, put on heat and stick powder which I then melted with my heat tool, sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds and heat set. The new Sheer Cherry Cobbler ribbon was a must buy for me. And even though this is only mock up number 1, I have a feeling that that ribbon will be used in whichever card I go with. Mock up 2 will have a neat snowflake embellishment incorporated. I used Smokey Slate to go with the Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler paper.
