Pop n Cuts Bathing Suit Card

Had this idea for a while and it sat on my desk half glued together for a while. Still haven't finished outside but will get to it. When I saw the sleeveless dress framelit, it reminded me of a bathing suit. A little snip here and there and voila'! I made the beach blanket with the chevron embossing folder. Ran 1 piece of each color through big shot and trimmed the chevrons out of the calypso coral piece. Used some punched for sun, hat, and clouds. Hope you enjoy it!

CS: so saffron, whisper white, blushing bride, calypso coral, tempting turquoise
DSP: sunshine and sprinkles, tea for 2
Ink: soft suede, crumb cake, black stazon
Stamps: perfectly penned
Accessories: Chevron EF, pop n cuts dress form and base, dress framelits, cupcake builder, circle and oval punches, sponges

Bye Bye Manhattan Flower


This is a case of a card from Julie Pitta who cased it from the Stampin' Up 2011-2012 catalog. I had only recently gotten this EF when SU put out their retired list and this was on it! I remembered loving the sample in the catalog when I saw Julie's card. I changed the colors slightly and added a clay rose.

CS-old olive, early espresso, raspberry ripple, watercolor paper, very vanilla
Ink: raspberry ripple, old olive, early espresso
Accessories: simply pressed clay and molds, old olive and raspberry ripple markers, chevron and manhattan flower EF, extra large oval punch, scallop border punch, sponges, linen thread
Stamps: word play, the open sea
