Razzleberry Lemonade DSP

First, Rachael needs to teach me how to photograph cards. It's a shame she lives so far away; maybe when she is here on Thursday, she can show me. Rachael and I share many tastes in common--she is my daughter after all--but once in a while one of us will fall in love with a particular Designer Series Paper while the other one could take it or leave it. I think it is this way with Razzleberry Lemonade, one of my favorite papers ever. I think it's because last year's In Colors were my favorites and this paper has many of them in it.

You may have noticed that I often do not stamp a sentiment on the front of my cards. That's because I will decide later, when I plan to actually send the card. That way, if a friend is retiring or a family member has a birthday, the same card could work. So the sentiment for the white space in this card will be added later ... or not.

In addition to the DSP, I used Whisper White paper, and Rich Razzleberry ribbon. (I turned the ribbon over so that the dots would not show.) The stamp is from Baroque Motifs and was stamped using Melon Mambo. I used a Nestie to cut the shape with the stamp and the backing paper and added silver brads in the corners. Finally, I pierced around the white part of the paper.

Yup. Just don't like Razzleberry Lemonade. I don't know why. Just don't. :oP

However, that said, I LOVE this layout! What a fabulous card! :o)

Which is the razzleberry lemonade? The busy print paper on the bottom of the card?

Rach said...

Yup. That's the one, Jessie. :o)

Hi Ladies,

I'm a new reader after checking out the Cut Above entries. Your cards are simply gorgeous! I used to stamp a long time ago, but it was back when you pressed the stamp on an ink pad, maybe colored it in a little, and called it done. : ) I moved onto scrapbooking b/c it was more fun and creative, but I think I need to pull the old stamps out again. I live in MI, otherwise I would ask for some private lessons! Thanks for posting your cards and giving us ideas. Kim

Lissie, this is wonderful and so pretty! I'm not a big fan of that DP either but you did a fabulous job with it and may have just "sold" me on it! So pretty.

Hi Kim!

Thanks for popping in and saying "hi". If you lived closer, I'd DEFINITELY demo some techniques and things for you.
