On this week's Sunday Showcase, I'm featuring some of my Too Cool Demo Team creations with fun collage backgrounds.  Get ready for lots of random stamping!

Peggy - grunge apothecary bday copy                

Created by Peggy Tassler.  Color combo: Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie & Whisper White.

Peggy created a lovely distressed background with the Gorgeous Grunge (wood) stamp set—one of my absolute favorites!  You can't go wrong with these overlapping striped and splotched elements, stamped in whatever colors you like.  Must-have alert!

Also features: Apothecary Accents Framelits, Modern Label Punch, Gifts of Kindness (wood).

Becky - mosaic butterfly collage copy           

Created by Becky High.  Color combo: Blackberry Bliss, Coastal Cabana & Whisper White.

Becky used the sample on page 163 of the new Annual Catalog to CASE this beautiful collage of mosaics and butterflies!  The background is embossed with the Modern Mosaic Folder and sponged with Coastal Cabana Ink.  Then, she layered on Mosaic Madness (wood) shapes, punched with the Mosaic Punch, and textured butterflies die-cut from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  So pretty!

Also features: Pearl JewelsProject Life Corner Round Punch.

Peggy - flower shop work of art copy       

Created by Peggy Tassler.  Color combo: Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush & Whisper White.

Peggy created another fabulous collage background for these Flower Shop (wood) blooms using the Work of Art (wood) swooshes and splotches!  Of course, you still need the Gorgeous Grunge (wood) for the splatters…it truly is a must-have set! 

Rita - girls softball copy  

Created by Rita Berning.  Color combo: Strawberry Slush, Crumb Cake, Silver & Whisper White.

Rita created a reprise of her Baseball Grunge card from last month, this time with a feminine twist for girls' softball!  She used the mini chevron die-cuts from the Circle Card Thinlits to add "stitching" to the ball.  The pennant is from Banner Greetings Hostess Set (wood), which matches the Strawberry Slush Baker's Twine on the fold. 

The background uses a combination of Gorgeous Grunge (wood), Work of Art (wood), and the retired Off The Grid stamp embossed in silver to represent the dirt on the field and the fencing.  Retired Simply Stars represent the all-star player, but you could add some stars with the new Itty Bitty Accents star punch and Star Framelits!

Kathe - gold goodness copy     

Created by Kathe Madsen. Color combo: Soft Suede, Gold & Whisper White.

Kathe's card is a golden delight!  Her background elements from the retired Happy Watercolor set are stamped in Gold Encore Ink, and accented with the gold Watercolor Wonder Washi Tapes.  She gold embosed her retired Delicate Doilies die-cut and Very Vintage Designer Buttons for even more metallic accents! 

Peggy - lovely tilted trees copy     
Created by Peggy Tassler.  Color combo: Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, retired Summer Starfruit, Basic Black & Whisper White.

Peggy finishes out our cards today with another Work of Art (wood) collage background combined with the classic Lovely As A Tree (wood) image.  She used the double-time stamping technique to make the focal point spill across both layers. 

Also features:  Neutrals Buttons, retired Banner Greetings.
