I finally cut into my new card stock. Well, I cut one little piece of Marina Mist. I was getting ready to make a card with Cherry Cobbler too, but my paper cutter had schmutz on it and messed up what I was working on. So, being the intrepid, dedicated stamper that I am, I put it aside to come back to later.
Here's my Marina Mist sample. Before you get too excited, understand that I'm a hoarder, so it's a very small piece.
It's the layer between the Whisper White and Night of Navy and the two blue butterflies. It's the perfect mix of Ballet and Brocade Blue. I think maybe the image would have looked better on Vanilla or Crumb Cake (Kraft), but, oh, well. I like the way the image looks on Whisper White. (I'm starting a movement to have Whisper White changed to Whipped Cream White, by the way. I think it will go better with Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie. What do you think?? I don't think SU! is going to go for it, though.)
Here are the supplies used:
Stamp set: Bloomin' Beautiful
Ink: Basic Brown classic; VersaMark; Stampin' Write Markers – Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue, Old Olive, More Mustard, Going Gray, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Marina Mist, So Saffron, Old Olive, Crumb Cake (Kraft)
Accessories: 2-way glue pen, corner rounder punch, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Big Shot, Embossing Folders – Square Lattice (Summer Mini), Finial Press
You can't see the details really well, but I glittered the butterflies and the flower centers. I reverse masked the flower pot and stamped the "bloom" definition in Basic Brown. It's not real obvious in the photo, but gives it a little extra dimension.
That's it for today. I'm hoping to get back to the Cherry Cobbler card, but today's kind of crazy! Have a great weekend!
