Razzleberry Lemonade


I was totally inspired by the cards Becky Oehler showed on her blog here, so I got out my Razzleberry Lemonade designer paper and started cutting.


What a fun way to use lots of small pieces of DP--and be treated to all those fun colors and patterns!  But I noticed when I have a project like this at my stamp camps, sometimes my customers have a hard time mounting and centering these smaller pieces.  So I came up with an easier way to ensure that your panel is even and centered.






I made another card while I was playing, but this time, I wheeled a piece of Melon Mambo with the jumbo wheel Cornelli Lace in Versamark, then heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice EP for a totally different effect:


Here's a little closer view of the embossing:DSCF4774

I love your panel cards! Thanks for the tip for getting the panels evenly spaced! I needed that!

Such a fun and cheery card!!! I definitely want to play with my patterns more now that I'm inspired by all the PTI girls.

LOVE that razzleberry lemonade card with the panels!

Kathleen said...

Girl!!! I just left her blog and I LOVED her card! I'm going to try to make one of those, too! I have no idea when, we have family in town right now and then we'll have some other out of town guests---this really limits the stamp time! Glad you found some~

Clever way to add the dp scraps to the card!

Juanita said...

What wonderful birthday cards you have gotten.
I like the pattern card you have there, I am far to effecient with my scraps, I would have to make scraps to be able to make this card :)

LeAnne... what an AWESOME tutorial and I'm always looking for ideas to use up my scraps! And I have this DP on order... I'm probably the only girl in the USA that doesn't own it... Ha! :)

LeAnne, I love this idea! I have all these pieces tucked in my 6x6 pads and just keep collecting them. Love your work!
