VC BLOG HOP #3 !!!!!

The July VC_Rocks BLOG HOP is here - I am stop #16 .. and I am excited to be a part of the fun this month.  If you started at the beginning of the blog hop, you came here from Alexandria Snider's Ready Craft Create blog at readycraftcreate.blogspot.com - if you are just joining the blog hop, you can start at the beginning:    vcrocks.blogspot.com.

My card for today is an easy one - really.  I have been asked to make and post some easier-to-make cards so here goes.  The colors I used are Wild Wasabi and Whisper White - I am happy to see Wild Wasabi back in our catalog, but this time, instead of being an in-color (in 2007-08), it is a "regular" color now.  I used these stamp sets: Pocket Silhouettes and Sincere Salutations for the saying, both stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  Other accessories I used included: Scallop Circle Punch and a circle punch, a clear button backed by a 1" circle punched out of Whisper White .... and I used white embroidery floss for an accent.  Hope you enjoy it - I received one similar from a friend and I liked it so much that I CASE'd it ... now if you decide to CASE this one yourself, I'd really like to see it.  I have had this stamp set since it first came out, and don't think I have ever used it before ... now I have another sample card for you - today was a fun stampin' day!
This card uses the same stamp sets and the Wild Wasabi and Whisper White with Chocolate Chip for contrast.  I double stamped (ink your stamp, stamp once, then stamp again without reinking) - Oval punches and our Pinking Hearts Border Punch and Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.   Which one do you like best?

Your next blog stop is Diana Clark at stampinldyglfr62.blogspot.com ... enjoy her creations and the rest of the blog hop!  See you next time you visit me here - and hey, next month's blog hop is already scheduled .. so stay tuned.

Have fun, take care, get creative and God Bless

You make it hard for me to decide which one I like best they both are gorgeous cars, but I think I like the second one. Just the simplicity of it I guess. Thanks for sharing.

I'm happy that Wild Wasabi is back, too. Love both of your cards. TFS.

On the first card I loved the embossing and the second one is pure genius! TFS

Brandy said...

They're both so nice Shirley and I love Wild Wasabi!

Brenda said...

How to decide. I love the embossing on the first card, but the second card kept drawing me back to it, so I'll have to go with the second one. Like Noelle said, pure genious.

I'll vote - I like the second one the best.

And the double stamping - why can't I remember to do that more often - it looks fab!

Kimm BT said...

Love how you did these!

Kari Rieck said...

I really like these cards--great colors and design. I see a case happening here.

Patrice Herrera said...

They are both fantastic, no way to decide which one is best! Wild Wasabi is an older color that has been brought back I'm a new demo so I never had the chance to use it before. I am sold, it looks like a really great color to have around.
