Hello again! Happy Dog Days of Summer-at least here in New England! Hazy, hot & humid! While everyone is complaining about the weather, I'm reveling in it!! Love it! We have it for a "blink"/year!!!!

So if you're blog hopping here from Helen's blog, I'm happy to see you!!  Luvin' her card this time!!! Well, I always love her cards!!! lol

So this week's Coloring Down the Lines colors are 
Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe
      Pistachio Pudding, Smokey Slate, Strawberry Slush

We are winding down with the new In-Colors! But I really love this Pistachio Pudding color! At first, I thought it was kinda blah. But now that I see it paired with the other colors, it's the perfect accent to just about any card!

Here's this week's creation:

The colors actually shout out to me "sherbert"!! lol I think ice cream, but I didn't go the ice cream route! Now I challenged myself this week to not even use Whisper White cardstock anywhere-just the 3 colors. I usually like to stamp on the Whisper White or Very Vanilla to make the stamped image pop, but I think it works on the Smoky Slate! What a pretty gray that is!

sketch for inspiration.  Stamp set is Summer Silhouettes & the greeting is from Sweet Essentials! An understated set that you can now order for 25% off!!!
The Fancy Fan folder is the embossing in the back. I finally opened my Delicate Details Lace Tape, & boy do I wish I hadn't!!! I LOVE it!! I'll have to be buying plenty of this now!! You can color right on it to make it different colors. I stuck with the white to keep the accent going.

In this close up the Smoky Slate looks very metallicy silver! Nope.  Now I stamped the flower images in Pistachio Pudding & Strawberry Slush, & I thought it looked good as is. But I added the White Uniball Gel Pen to make the image pop. Add the white heat-embossed sentiment & voila!!! I think it's a very pretty card!! I think it shows pretty well in the close up!!!

Now head on over to Liz's happy blog home & check out her lovely card!! I'll see you there!!! You bring the coffee!!

Next week you will be seeing all kinds of convention treats! I leave Tuesday night for a week of fun!! Right now I am working feverishly to get all my swaps done & everything ready for the trip!!! Good stuff!!!

So until next time!
Happy Stampin'!!!


  1. Great card Joni. I love the Delicate Details Lace too, so know what you mean. Somethings are better left in the bag, then their not addictive! LOL. I also love the accents with the gel pen, really does make those images pop! So cool seeing you at Convention and I loved the swap card you gave me!!!!

  2. I love this card, Joni. Beautiful job!!!!
