True Friends Never Fade… Idea book & Catalog Share 2010

When I look at the stamp set “Friends Never Fade”… I think wow, what insight, how true!  Today, I’m featuring just one of the stamps from the set.. it’s kind of like a pineapple, dutch welcome sign, and traditional stencil all rolled into one!

Another bonus today:  NEW ribbon featured in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog.. this time in Early Espresso and Marina Mist.  I’m really not a ‘blue’ person.. but the new Marina Mist color reminds me more of the ocean, the clear blue waters of the Florida keys.. and it embosses beautifully too!

Enough Chit Chat.. here’s the first card share:


The old olive ribbon from the Theatre ribbon essentials pack was added behind the new Marina Mist 1/8” ribbon… and then I used my mat pack to place silver brads on the front layer of the card.  Vintage wallpaper embossed marina mist card stock really stands out here.. I love how deeply embossed the image is.  The Marina Mist cardstock is paired with bashful blue cardstock, and I’ve added a punchy flower with lots of layers after stamping regular computer (or office copy paper) with the a to z stamp set… and of course a flat backed pearl from the pretties kit.  What do you think?  Want to see another sample using just ONE of the stamps from the Friends Never Fade Stamp Set?  Here you go:


More of that yummy vintage wallpaper embossing folder!! AND… this time I’ve paired Marina Mist with Early Espresso and Whisper White Card Stock, but turned the embosssed image upside down.. fun, isn’t it?.  Still the same pineapple image (or is that an artichoke?) from the Friends Never Fade stamp set… and more narrow 1/8” ribbon…  All available in the New Idea Book & Catalog..

Tomorrow is Sketch Frenzy Friday.. I just know you’re going to love this sketch, and hope you’ll play along!  I’ll have a link to post your samples too, and look forward to sharing your creativity with the world!

Both your cards are gorgeous, but I must admit I like the first one better - must be the large flower I am partial to. Love the use of colours.
