More Peeks!

Here's another sneak peek for you.  I know at first glance you're going to say, "Oh, that looks like Taken with Teal and Really Rust."  But the colors are actually Bermuda Bay and Dusty Durango.  When you see them in person, you can tell they're a little lighter than the teal and rust.

One_of_a_kind_In_color Aren't they pretty?  Here's how I made the card.

I took a window sheet (and in the interest of full disclosure, it wasn't a real window sheet.  It was a cheap, office transparency), folded it in half and drizzled a little Bermuda Bay and Dusty Durango refill on one side.  Then I closed it and smooshed it together, then opened it back up and put the card stock in.  I used two pieces back to back, so I could get full use out of the refills.  Bray over the outside to transfer the ink.  That's all there is to the background.

The flowers, "for you," and the flower in the grommet (that you can't really see well) were all stamped on this background paper.  The dark ink on the big flowers is Soft Suede.  It's kind of a 'tween color between Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip.

Here's the full list:
Stamp set:  One of a kind
Ink:  Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede classic; Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay refills
Paper:  Whisper White, Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay card stock
Accessories:  Stampin' Dimensionals, Grommets (large), Punches:  1/2" circle, Large Oval, Wide Oval, Scallop Oval; Big Shot, Texturz Plate, Impressions Pad, Silicone Rubber, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds glitter

For my new job, we have "signature folders" for things that need to be signed.  I decided to dress mine up a little.  What do you think?

Sig_folder I covered it with Rockabilly designer series paper, and the cherry stamps are from "You Rock."  I didn't have enough of the striped paper, so I had to piece it.  The crimped Real Red strip is covering the seam.

That's it for now….I'm going to admire my Wesley's handiwork.  He spent the morning cleaning up the boys' area of the basement, and it looks incredible! 

Oh – one more thing.  I found out my designer paper in the previous post is not upside down!  The divider pages in the new catalog are designer paper prints, and one page uses the floral pattern from Razzleberry Lemonade – and that's the way it goes!  So, I'm not losing it after all.  Yay!!

    Nice job on the folder!
    I love the combo on the card and you did a beautiful job with the patterned paper. I will definitely have to try that technique.

    What a fun boost to your job (and a great quiet sales pitch!)
    The Bermuda/Durango card looks like a fun technique.
    Thanks for sharing the Sneak Peeks as I am being a good girl and waiting another week before I can order.

    Cute – I agree they are pretty close to the teal and rust although I think I like them better! Hmmm…we’ll have to wait and see! This is a fun project though!
