This one is beautiful! I used crumb cake, marina mist, and very vanilla. The striped ribbon and flower brad are a quick touch. I also embossed the vanilla with the elegant bouquet folder and rounded all the corners. The frame is the large scallop from the scallop circle #2 die. I also ran it through the dotted embossing folder. I punched the middle out using a post it note and 21/2 circle punch to cut out the center. I used dimensionals to hold it on. Then I punched the flowers out with that same punch so I could drop it into place. I stamped the flowers with black staz-on. I used the aqua painter and the marina mist and old olive classic pads for the flowers, the jar is bashful blue then I painted a crumb cake shadow around everything. I also put crystal effects over the jar to make it look like glass.

I love the new mini catalog! This is a single stamp so it is on $9.95. What a deal! I paired it with the words from Best Dad Ever, also in the new mini. Both of these sets are masculine themed. I used our black craft pad stamping the words then the boat. Then I embossed them at the same time using our clear embossing power. I took strips of pacific point, cherry cobbler, and whisper white and taped them on a white base. Then I ran that through my Big Shot using the lattice embossing folder. Then I punched the circles out of cherry using the round Itty Bitty Shapes punch. I ran Baker's Twine through the punches. I love that stuff! I added the embossed base to the pacific point card after I added the twine. I sponged the water on using pacific point. I added the stripes on the sail using cherry cobbler and the aqua painter. The boat is mounted on pacific point. I added the cherry tab with silver brads to finish pulling the red through the card. I used dimensionals to attach the boat piece to the base. The colors are striking on this card.
