More rhubarb and more cards

More rhubarb for supper - Rhubarb Salsa.  It was pretty good.  It was fairly quick - lots of chopping.  

I could eat it with a spoon :-)   Frozen tamales, chips and salsa,  A nice supper after a day of cardmaking.   And more cards to show you...

The stripes on this one is washi tape.  I finally ordered some and I love it.  It add some color but is almost transparent.   This is the Gingham Garden designer series paper.  The stamp set is Label Love. 

Another washi tape card.  I used the Daffodil Delight gingham tape and put is on a strip of Whisper White card stock because I did not want the Bermuda Bay scallop behind it to show through the tape.  Smoky Slate was used for the ink.  It is a new color and I am so glad to have a lighter gray.  I layered the Artisan Label, Modern Label and Decorative Label for the sentiment. 

A monochromatic card using Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral.   I bought the Chevron emobssing folder some time ago and it was still in my 'need to use' stack.   The zig zag strip was cut using the Tasteful Trims die. 
These cards show two different ways to use the lace tape.   For the card on the left I places the tape on some Whisper White card stock and sponged Melon Mambo ink over it - then removed the tape.  I used the inked tape on the card on the right.   The paper is Gingham Garden.
And I think this was my favorite card of this group.   The card base is Soft Sky.  I added some of the lace tape and used an embossing folder to make the cross stitch line below the tape.  The 1/8 inch taffeta ribbon is Daffofil Delight.   I stamped the baby stamp from Label Love using Daffodil Delight and a second one in Pistachio Pudding.  I punch out the center of the Pistachio Pudding with the small scallop circle and put a strip of Pistachio Pudding card stock behind it . 
So - supper break is over and I'm going back to the craft room.  Having so much fun with my new toys.
