Shopping Around

The cool change came through just after 6pm - the temperature dropped from 36  to 27 in about 10 minutes! Such a lovely cool breeze!! We left for the park and the dogs had a good play together.

I needed a card for a relative in NZ and it seemed time to play with the Shop Around wheel again. I looked at CASE - ing the card in the Catalogue and changed  colours and added embellishments - ok I changed quite a bit :-)
The Card base is Pool Party card with the Shop Around Jumbo Wheel stamped onto Smoky Slate card and layered onto Basic Grey which has scallops cut using the Adorning Accents Framelits.

The frame is Basic Grey ink and card layered over a pop of Calypso coral. Pool Party ribbon and a rose made from Simply Pressed Clay and coloured with a marker to add the finishing touches. 

There is also some Dazzling diamonds glitter on the rose - used in the moulds at the time of pressing in the Clay.
Dimensionals are used to raise the frame and the also the whole Basic Grey layer.

Card stock: Pool Party, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral
Ink: Smoky Slate, Basic Grey, Calypso Coral
Stamps: Shop Around Jumbo Wheel, Chalk Talk
Accessories: Big Shot, Adorning Accents and Chalk Talk Framelits, 13/8" circle Punch, Pool Party Ribbon, Simply Pressed Clay, Dazzling Diamonds

This second card is a further variation and I think I prefer it for the intended recipient who will be 91 years young (and unlikely to be looking here!)

So something a little lighter and brighter! The card base is Smoky slate and the Shop Around is this time rolled onto Pool Party card stock which is layered on Coastal Cabana.
The Calypso coral tag is topped with some Ribbon trim ( it has some elastic in it but is still able to be tied ) and a little monarch butterfly from the lovely Papillon Potpourri set and topped with some basic pearls.
The frame is again stamped in Basic Grey, but this time is stamped onto Smoky Slate card. The Frame and greeting are from the Chalk Talk set.

Card stock: Smoky Slate, Coastal Cabana,  Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Ink: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Basic Grey
Stamps: Shop Around Jumbo Wheel, Chalk Talk, Papillon Potpourri
Accessories: Big Shot, Adorning Accents and Chalk Talk Framelits, 1 3/8" Circle punch, Calypso Coral Ribbon Trim, Basic pearls, 

Tomorrow I hope to share some Christmas projects we made at last weeks' Stamp and chat night.

Happy stamping until next time,
