TRY THE NEW EMBOSSING PASTE – IT’S FUN!

Good day and I’m excited to show this card created by using our new Embossing Paste and the Old Olive ink refill.

This paste is easy to use, just lay the Pattern Party design mask of your choice over the piece of thick very vanilla paper and spread.  You will need to set the background aside to dry for about 5-10 minutes.

In the meantime, stamp the orchids, stems and greeting and cut them out with corresponding framelits.  TIP:  The branches were stamped onto Soft Suede cardstock and then cut out with Paper Snips.  When your background is dry, arrange the flowers and branches and add your greeting.  I’ll post a video for you tomorrow to see how to use this Embossing Paste.

PLAYING WITH ORCHIDS – AGAIN!

Hello and I’m playing with the Climbing Orchid Bundle – again!  This time by creating these lovely vellum orchids.

Working with vellum makes for a lovely twist, especially when using the Berry Burst ink!  The first thing to do is to stamp the branches onto the whisper white background and then run it through the Big Shot so you can add the Garden Trellis.  I did a little trick by adding the branch onto the greeting piece so it would lie nicely at the top.  TIP:  Just stamp the greeting first and then lay the piece over top of the already stamped branch to get an eyeball of where it should be over top of the greeting.

Here is the list of products used for this card.

THIS IS ONE HAPPY PIGGY

I thought that i’d show this Happy Piggy today.  Who doesn’t like happy dancing pigs, lol?

She looks so sweet with the Lemon Lime Twist card base doesn’t she?  I used Shimmery White paper and an Aqua Painter to get her to just the right shade of pink.  The new InColor, Powder Pink was perfect!  This stamp set is so perfect when you want to send a happy greeting!

EASTERN BEAUTY

I thought that I’d show you this card that was created with the Eastern Beauty Bundle.  It is so beautiful with the new InColors, Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig.

If you look closely you can see that I heat embossed the little flourish in gold and then added the centrepiece using the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers.  A tiny gold bow finishes it off nicely.

ORCHIDS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL

Do you like Orchids?  I think that they are so beautiful and was delighted to play with the new Climbing Orchid Bundle.

This is one of the cards that we had fun with in class yesterday.  I kept the background plain so we could show off those beautiful Orchids.  Perfect Plum is the perfect colour to set them off don’t you think?  We just stamped the images and then used the matching Orchid Builder Framelits Dies to cut them out.

It didn’t take too many supplies to create this card so this list is short.

SUNNY SMILES FOR YOUR MONDAY

We had an absolutely lovely weekend full of sunshine and smiles, so I thought it only appropriate to share this sunny card today.  After all, isn’t a sunny smile a great way to start off the week?

I “borrowed” the greeting from the Colorful Seasons stamp set and did something a little different to get that shape. TIP:   I first traced the outline of the stamp onto the whisper white paper, then stamped it with Old Olive ink and then cut it out with Paper Snips.  It’s a fun way to add a little interest to your project!

A CUT ABOVE:

I’m delighted to share with you that I was one of the Paper Players choices for A Cut Above on their challenge for last week.  This is the card I shared with them.  Thank you for choosing my card!

ONE LOVELY ROSE JUST FOR YOU

Happy Monday to you and what better way to start a new week than with one lovely rose!  This card was made with the Graceful Garden stamp set and I love the rose images.

It’s perfect for watercolouring so I brought out our Watercolor Pencils and Aqua Painters to get just the right touches in that lovely rose.  TIP:  Use our Shimmery White paper when watercolouring.  It won’t pill while you’re blending the colours.

Notice that interesting layout?  It’s from Freshly Made Sketches and was fun to put together with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  The background looked a little too bare for me so I added that trellis image from the Graceful Garden stamp set to finish things off.  Perfect!

Here’s the sketch for you – you might want to give it a try yourself.

TRANQUIL FLOWERS WITH A BURST OF BERRY

Today’s share is this card I made a few days ago using the New Colorful Seasons Bundle.

The background designer paper is from the Retired Succulent Garden pack which is, unfortunately, sold out.

I went ahead and stamped those tiny flowers with Berry Burst (New InColor) and Sweet Sugarplum and cut them out with the machine Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  The branch was cut out by hand with Paper Snips(103579) to give the blooms something to sit on.

Here’s the list of products that I used.  Yay, only 2 days to go until you can order the wonderful New InColors and this stamp set.  Keep June 1st marked on your calendar!

IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU AND DAISIES

It’s all about you says today’s card and it sports some bright and cheery daisies too!

I used Watermelon Wonder and Night of Navy for my daisies – not the “usual” colour, but I like them nestled there.

I was playing along with the Create with Connie and Mary Colour challenge as well as the card sketch for Freshly Made Sketches to start my week off with inspiration!

Here’s the sketch;

and here’s the list of colours that I used.

The Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron(Low Inventory) inks and cardstock are on the Retirement list, so if you really like them, make sure to stock up very soon.  All retiring items go away May 31st!
