Choo Choo

I made this card last month for an INKlings card swap. It uses a fun new set from the Spring Mini Catalogue - Choo Choo & the matching Stampin' around wheel - Right On Track.
To create the cloud background I punched out a scallop circle, placed it on the card base & sponged baja ink over the top.

Stampsets: Choo Choo, Loads of Love Accessories, On Your Birthday
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Bella Rose & Sweet Slumber Specialty DSP
Ink: Baja Breeze, Basic Black, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Old Olive, Summer Sun, Real Red & Choc Chip Markers

Ribbon Tags

I first saw these cute little ribbon embellishments here. I have posted a card using them before, but thought I'd give them a rerun & add some of the gorgeous new corduroy buttons A fun thing to do is dye your corduroy buttons. I used a sponge dauber & then touched up the buttons using my markers. You will need to make sure the button you want to dye is lighter than the colour you want to change it to - I have dyed a gray button Choc Chip & a Baja Breeze button Rose Red.

Stampsets: On Your Birthday, Trendy Trees, Fresh Cuts
Cardstock: Whisper White
Inks: Choc Chip, Baja Breeze, Rose Red
Accessories: 1" Stitched Grosgrain, Hemp Twine, Corduroy Buttons
