This is a card that we made at our last Stamp Club. It features new and old products.
The stamp set is All Dressed Up and I’m tickled pink that this set and the coordinating framelits dies are being carried over into the new 2013-2014 Catalog.
I love the Baja Breeze Blue, Basic Gray and Whisper White color combination. If you do too, you need to stock up on Baja Breeze cardstock, ink, accessories, etc. as this color is being retired due to our Color Refresh.
My Big Shot made easy work of cutting out all of the shapes for this card. I stamped this dress in Baja Breeze ink onto Whisper White cardstock. The coordinating framelits dies made cropping out this shape a snap! The dress form was cropped out using Basic Gray cardstock also with the Framelits dies. The dress fits perfectly on the dress form.
I used the Ovals Framelits dies to create the oval shape and offsetting the oval off of the card base creates an interesting background.
TIP: I used SNAIL adhesive to glue the oval to the Baja Breeze cardstock layer first and then, using my Stampin’ Trimmer, I sliced off the portion of the oval that was hanging off.
The sentiment, also from the All Dressed Up set was stamped with Basic Gray ink onto the Baja Breeze layer. This layer was adhered to the Whisper White carstock base and then a Basic Jewels Pearls necklace was added as a final, finishing touch.

A co-worker of mine is celebrating her birthday this week, and in perusing the catalog, the pic on pg. 79 caught my eye and just screamed, “Ann would love this!” So I whipped out my new paper trimmer, my big shot and my stamps and CASE’D this card. Here is my version:
My lighting is a little wonky and it seems a little washed out on the right side but I hope you can see it well enough.
I used Sahara Sand cardstock for my base, and topped it with Early Espresso Cardstock. A piece of DSP in Baja Breeze from the Floral District Designer Series Paper pack # 126919 filled in the center. I ran a little piece of Sahara Sand thru my Big Shot with the Finishing Touches Edgelits # 127010 to create the beautiful lacy border. The Labels Collections Framelits # 125598 created the beautiful die-cut shape for my main attraction. Everything Eleanor provided the stamps for the flowers and Perfectly Penned provided the sentiment. Basic Pearls make great flower centers so after I snipped out my little flower stamped in Calypso Coral, I added a pearl. My leaves were also snipped and are tucked underneath the die cut. Baja Breeze seam binding #122331 tied in a double bow is the finishing touch.
I just love the soft shade of Baja Blue and the contrast of Early Espresso. Calypso Coral and the Old Olive provided just the right accent colors for this color palette. The way the seam binding ribbon just flows is lovely. Everything about this card is feminine and reminds me of Ann. Happy Birthday, Ann!
