Animal Stories in Tall Tales

I think this card turned out so cool. It is a horse right, something about the way the horse has it head kinda of cocky, like us as teens and young adults alittle cocky. Then the sentiment" It Takes Courage to Grow Up and Be Who You Really Are" Something about it just struck me that when we finally get to the realization and find that courage which only can come from spiritual growth by then we have found a little humility and our head isn't quite as cocky anymore. This is a pocket card, with Old Olive base and Tall Tales DP, whisper white sentiment punched out with the modern punch stamped with Crushed Curry
"its good to dream" from Razzle Dazzle.
I used the eyelet border punch and wrapped Saffron twill ribbon around the flap and adhered it down. On the sides I used small silver brads to hold the sides together using a 1/16" punch .
On the insert I used a silver eyelet and set it with the cropadile and ran a bit of chocolate twill thru the top. The base is saffron top note with a white top note minus the perforation to give it that layered affect.
I hope you enjoy this card and the sentiment behind it.

New In Color Criss Cross Cards

Look for a Criss Cross card this month at stamp camp. These are super fun to make and so many options with the insert. This one has the Razzleberry Lemonade DP with Melon Mambo as the base cs. With Crushed curry and whisper white for the sentiment. Curry die cut label from the matchbox die and Thinking of you from The NEW level 3 Hostess Set Kind and Caring Thoughts.
The inside is stamped with Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, and Crushed Curry and the sentiment is stamped in Melon. Whisper white front top note with perforation cut off and then the back top note is pumpkin pie. I also used some of the library clip asst in silver on the top instead of doing the hole and ribbon option.
This is the NEW Razzleberry Lemonade DP along with the new in colors
Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo and whisper white.
The base of the card is crushed curry and the top note that pulls out is melon mambo. I used the match box label die cuts to make the label on the front embossing it with white ep. I also used the jumbo eyelets set with the cropadile with a bit of suede polka dot ribbon thru the eyelet.
The stamp set is 24-7( Not 24 minus 7) inside joke LOL!
I think out of the whole NEW catalog this razzle dazzle set for like $18.95 is the gem of all!
It's like Baroque Motiff a classic. there are just so many things you can do with it.
Below is the NEW soft suede in color with vanilla. I stamped the flourish image in the soft suede on the vanilla and it just instantly turns any colored cardstock into Designer paper.
The stamp on the top note in soft suede is Live , Laugh and Love Happy Birthday
from the Birthday set. Also the sentiment on the front it from the same set "It's your birthday"
punched out with the NEW modern punch.

I used the pewter jumbo eyelet and soft suede polka dot ribbon again. It matched perfectly. That is why I love Stampin' UP! everything matches and I don't have to put alot of thought and run all over town looking for this or that I have it all at the tip of my fingers.Or a catalog order away and plus I get FREE merchandise based on the amount of money I spend!!
