Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Berry Birthday Card
For my first project today I decided to pull out an old favorite, Strawberry Patch and pair it up with the new Bountiful Banners.  The thing I love about this banner set is that it can literally be paired up with just about anything else you already have in your existing stamp collection!

I stamped the strawberry image with VersaMark onto white cardstock and then heat embossed it with White Filigree Embossing Powder.  I then watercolored the image using ink refills, water and small brush.  TIP: when watercoloring over a heat embossed image like this, you get a much better effect when you purposely get a bit of color outside of the lines.

I die-cut the banner from white cardstock and then inked up the coordinating image from Bountiful Banners.  I inked the entire banner with Summer Sunrise and then rolled the edges of it with Orange Zest.  The sentiment was added in True Black ink.

The banner was adhered with bits of foam tape, curved upward slightly in the center for dimension.  I added the border in Simply Chartreuse and the "HB" medallion in Pure Poppy.

The top edge of the card cover was cut with the Pinking Shears die and accented with stamped stitching using Sew Simple Borders.  Everything was adhered to a Classic Kraft card base.

Tulip Thank You Card
For my next project I decided to pair up Bountiful Banners with another old favorite,  Vintage Picnic.

I die-cut Rustic White cardstock with the Limitless Layers 3-1/2" Oval die and stamped it with the plaid basket and tulip topper.  I colored everything in with Copic Markers and then impressed the oval with the Linen & Canvas impression plate.

Banner side
I die-cut the banner from Rustic White cardstock as well and stamped it with the banner image using Simply Chartreuse ink.  The sentiment and the accent stripes were added with black ink.

For the background, I impressed the new Cover Plate: Twist, using it in conjunction with the same sandwich I would use for an impression plate.

Everything was mounted onto a Rustic White card base.

Mr & Mrs Card
I thought I would put a wedding card together for my last project today.

I die-cut Mat Stack 6 from Vintage Cream cardstock and stamped it with a few leaves from Mini Blooms using Spring Moss ink.  I also added some flowers in Melon Berry and Aqua Mist using small bits of foam tape.  Pearl accents were the perfect finishing touch.  The banner was die-cut and then stamped in Fine Linen, with the sentiments added in Dark Chocolate.  

I die-cut the Cover Plate: Twist from Sweet Blush cardstock and trimmed a portion of it to be used as a border.  A Melon Berry card base finishes the project off.
