Razzleberry Lemonade

I made one of these cards a few months back, when I first started with Stampin Up. I used Bella Rose of course, because it was my favorite DSP and couldnt get enough of it. Not all of my customers are stampers, some of them are scrapbookers, so I like to include cards that dont require stamps, to keep them interested. This Iris Fold would also make a great scrapbook page embellishment, dont ya think? Arent these rich colors of the Razzleberry Lemonade set, beautiful? I love how bold and rich they are and thought they would be perfect to showcase this iris fold, which uses nothing but paper, a pearl from all the pretties and a scallop circle punch! Isnt it beautiful, and it really is simple!

Featured Set: The Free and the Brave

The Free and The Brave is one of my favorite Stampin Up sets, sadly, it is retiring in just a few days. Being in the military, this set is perfect for military events such as promotion and retirement ceremonies.

This first card uses Creamy Caramel and whisper white. The first image is stamped in blue Staz on Ink, distressed with Red Staz on ink, I water colored the flag and soldier using my Stampin Pastels and aqua pen.

This card uses a depth of field like techniue to stamp the stars in several colors of blue, Bashfull Blue, Almost Navy, Night of Navy and Bordering on Blue. The cardstock was Real Red and Brilliant Blue

This one is based on a case from Split Coast Stampers, another set of stars stamped in Moonlight White and versamark, allthough, the stamp had some red color remaining on it, so the stars on the Real Red cardstock didnt quite come out clear, but more like a red tint. The soldier is also stamped with Versa mark ink, Brilliant Blue, Real red and Creamy Caramel make up the card and More Blasing Red Staz On, to stamp the sentiment.
