RemARKably Creative Blog Hop: NEW, NEW, NEW now that will Do!


Good evening and Happy Father's Day!  It was a wonderfully quiet and relaxing weekend for me with the empty house while they guys were canoeing down the Shenandoah but they made it home earlier today so I was able to check up on all the details and spoil Chris for Father's Day!  This evening we're launching this months Remarkably Created Blog Hop and sharing lots of fun ideas using new catalog items.  I'll admit, there are so many great items in the catalog I struggled a little trying to decide what to use (tough problems, I know!)  In the end I decided to use the Pocketful of Sunshine bundle since it has some cute images and I love how the matching framelits make it so the pocket will hold items.
I started with Berry Burst cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Dapper Denim as a mat for the Crumb Cake cardfront.  On the cardfront I used the new Burlap background stamp and stamped in Crumb Cake ink, stamping off first so it is a more subtle effect.

Next I took the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set and stamped the sunglasses in Berry Burst ink on Berry Burst cardstock, the money in Always Artichoke ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and the pocket using Dapper Denim ink and cardstock.  The coordinating Pocket framelits make cutting all the images out a breeze.  I added the greeting to the pocket by heat embossing it with Copper Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool.

I used my Clear Wink of Stella Pen to add some shimmer to the lenses of the sunglasses and attached them to the cardfront with dimensionals.  Also to make the money look a little more realistic I sponged it with Soft Suede ink before tucking it into the pocket.

This is such a fun stamp set and framelits, lots of potential, it would also be great for gift giving if you wanted to give money or a gift card and tuck it in the pocket.
