Tour de Freaks --- New Catalog & Holiday Mini Blog Tour

Hello and welcome to July's Tour de Freaks!  Glad you could stop by and visit.  You just came from Julie Davison's blog.  Hope you are enjoying our Tour.

My first card uses a new set in our catalog called Wetlands.  I also used some product from the new Holiday Mini catalog that begins August 1st.  I've added the page numbers for the items used from the Holiday Mini Catalog to make it easier for you to find.

Using pastel colors is rare for me so I am loving how soft this card is.  I used the background stamp from Truly Grateful for the tag.

Stamps:  Wetlands, Truly Grateful [Holiday Mini pg 19]
CS:   Soft Sky, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
DSP: Sweater Weather [Holiday Mini pg 18]
Ink:  Basic Black, Soft Sky
Reinkers:  Crumb Cake, Old Olive
Ribbon:  1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon {Holiday Mini pg 18], Linen Thread

Now to use my neglected Top Note Die.  I wanted to make a card with the sponged background.  Here is what I came up with.

Another must have stamp set is called Wildflower Meadow and has a matching Embossing Folder [ pages 83 and 191] to go with it.  How cool is that?!?!?!?  :)  Below are three great samples with this set by three very talented stampers.  :)
