So let's go straight to card number #1
featuring the new Beauty
stamp set AND the new Leafy Edged Borders Die...
I started with a rich raspberry card stock base (4.5 x 5 inches) and added a white card stock mat. I used the new Leafy Edged Borders Die to cut my white lace layer, silver poster board layer and designer paper over lay. I stamped my image with Memento Ink on Copic compatible paper and colored it to resemble a stargazer lily. I fussy cut the image after completing it and nestled it on top of a white die cut panel (created with the Stitched Ovals
die) along with greenery from the Fancy Foliage Die. I stamped my sentiment with a rich raspberry
ink on white card stock and hand cut the panel to create a banner. I tucked a pearl spray along with a few random pearls on the edge.
And now for my second card using Plant a Garden...
Here, I started with a brown card stock base also measuring 5.5 x 4.25 inches. I then chose a plank like designer paper from Our Daily Bread Designs' Rustic Beauty Paper Collection.
I elected to cut strips of the paper and adhere it to my base as if it were a true fence... going so far as to add a z shaped brace with dimensional foam on top. I stamped the image on Copic compatible paper (Plant a Garden) and colored it with Copics. I lightly sponged on Memento's Olive Grove ink on the bottom and Summer Sky on top to mimic the sky. I created the flower spray with the new Pretty Posies Die.
I cut flower layers and leaves with white card stock and colored each with distress ink. I spritzed them lightly with water and shaped them with a stylus and mouse pad. I used an older die Sunburst Background Die,
to created the base for the flower "buds" you see...
So here are the new items you see for this special mid month release...
and some of the older items you see today...
