Card Makeovers

When I attended Regional Conference in Orlando in January, we got to use the new Soft Summer Set from the Occasions Mini (available in April) in our Make & Takes. I didn't assemble my cards there, just stamped my images and took them home. I've finally put the cards together, adding additional elements to my cards, such as extra layers of card stock, sponging the edges, adding a few techniques. On one of them, I cut apart what was supposed to be a cello bag holder and reused my card stock as layers to create a card. I don't have the original samples to share with you - but here's my remakes of the projects, with some added twists...


The original Make & Take for this card didn't have the Bashful Blue or Chocolate Chip panels. I also added the Torn Frame Technique around my image and sponged on the Chocolate Chip ink. Then moved my panels a little lower on the card.


Details:
Stamps - Soft Summer
Card Stock- Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Naturals White, Urban Oasis, Chocolate Chip
Ink - Chocolate Chip, Black Stazon, Versamark, WC Crayons
Other - Bashful Blue Grosgrain, Library Clips, Dimensionals, Eyelet Border Punch, SAMJ, Spritz Bottle



This next Make & Take was originally a Treat Pouch. I cut apart the Baja Breeze card stock, and created panels for a card. Adding the Chocolate Chip, Kiwi and Tangerine panels. When I cut apart the Baja Breeze pieces, I also added the Eyelet Border punch. The Flower was created using the Simply Flower Embosslits Die and Tangerine Tango DSP. Simply sand your paper after it's embossed and the raised areas now become white.

Details:
Stamps - Soft Summer
Ink - Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
Card Stock - Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze Textured, Tangerine Tango DSP
Other - Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button, Simply Flower Embosslits Die, Big Shot, Eyelets Border Punch

When remaking this card, I added the Chocolate Chip base panel, the Torn Frames around my image, and used the Marker Watercoloring Technique to add color to my flower image.

Details:
Stamps - Soft Summer
Card Stock - Confetti Cream, Ruby Red, Watercolor, Chocolate Chip
Ink - Chocolate Chip, Black Stazon, Markers
Other - Chocolate Chip Grosgrain, Aquapainter

Lisa, I love these cards! When I saw that they used Soft Summer, I thought you had done Next Day Air and then stamped VERY quickly and took pictures and updated your blog all within an hour or so! So I was relieved to see that you used the set at Regionals! I assume you ARE getting this stamp set?! I can't wait to get mine tomorrow!!!

Smiles,
