Now, onto my cards!

The new release this month is called Poppy Field Summer.  It is beautiful!!!

I stamped the image in VersaMark and then heat embossed it with clear powder.  I went it with a sponge and added some distress ink to create a sunset look, and added some white ink towards the bottom.  I also distressed the edges and inked them, too!

A few close ups:

I have another card, too!!!

This time, I chose to heat emboss Poppy Field Summer in yellow and I stamped Wooden It Be Nice in the background.  I also stamped the sentiment onto some vellum and wrapped it around the front.  I used my heat gun to help it dry a little faster so it wouldn't smear!

Make sure you check out the SP Blog to see what Samantha did with the new stamps! And don't forget to hop around to each Design Team Member's blog - there are brand new projects with the stamps that came out TODAY to inspire you!

  1. Beautiful cards!!! Loving the yellow!

  3. Beautiful cards Chrissie!!! The backround on the first one is wonerful. And I love the embossing on the second Excellent job!!

  4. Both very different cards, Chrissie, and love your techniques for each one. I always forget the embossing and sponging method. Vellum allows your sentiment to pop and still allow your color & design to show through. Great job!

  5. Great cards. Love the inked and embossed looks.
