Quatrafancy Friday

First, A HUGE Thank You to everyone that came out to my Open House last week!  It was fun.

Today is my monthly hostess club and I decided to use the Mosaic Madness stamp set, coordinating punch and embossing folder.  This set and accessories are so much fun!  The possibilities are endless with all the little pieces fitting together like puzzle pieces.  Awesome set to showcase the new 2013-2014 In-Colors.

This is the first card we made, and my favorite.  I love the Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush color combo.  It's just so summery.  I CASE'd this from another demo (sorry, I do not remember your name), and changed up the arrangement of quatrafoils.  The banner is from the new Hostess sets in the new catalog, Banner Greetings.  So cute, so versatile, and a steal at just 8 hostess dollars.  The Strawberry DSP, comes from the Specialty Designer Series Paper, "Quatrafancy,"  It's a great pack of paper for summer.  We did find my Strawberry Slush ink pad to be very juicy.  This presented a little problem with the Banner Greetings because the writing is so fine.  It didn't take much ink to seep into the words, blurring them :(  After some trial and error, we found if we just laid the stamp on the ink pad, did not tap, and then picked up the stamp, it worked.  As I use this ink more it will dry up and shouldn't cause any more issues. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Feel free to leave a comment :)
