You’re Amazing

Hello everyone!! Brenda, here with you on this Friday morning!! I sure wish the weather here would decide what it wants to do!! It’s been crazy!! 70 degrees one day, then 30 the next. Enough already!!

It was a rainy, dreary day & I decided I needed some bright florals to brighten it up. Usually when I use layering stamps, I use the same color family of inks. I decided to try something different and I love the outcome.

What do you think? So vibrant!! First, I used the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Die (Large) to cut a white cardstock panel. I layered up the Large Florals: Daisy with Lemon Drop, Coralline and Red Sangria for the petals. For the center of the flowers, I used Lemon Drop & Bright FernSoft Garden & Bright Fern were used to stamp the leaves. The sentiment is from the Bold Amazing Greeting Word Plate Dies. These dies are amazing!! There’s no lining up the letters…they’re already lined up for you!! I popped the entire front panel onto dimensional adhesive and used a combination of Belle’s Dress, Frosted Spearmint, Deck the Halls, Glass Slippers Sequins and Glass Slippers Round Confetti Mix to create the shaker.

For my second card, I wanted to work with the Peony Bouquet set again. I used the bouquet once on a card, but I didn’t get to use the beautiful vase or the coordinating dies.

I started off by heat embossing the flowers from the Peony Bouquet set with The Ton’s exclusive Rose Gold Embossing Powder. I embossed the vase with white embossing powder. I think this is the first time I have used two different embossing powders on the same project, but I really like it!! I colored both images with Zig Clean Color Markers, then cut with the Peony Bouquet Coordinating Dies. The background panel was watercolored with some glitter liquid watercolors. I used the Buildable Woodgrain set, stamped with Crystal Pewter & Smoky Quartz Inks, to create a table top for my floral arrangement. Tha vase is adhered flat to the panel, while the floral bouquet is popped up with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is from the Most Interesting Card Maker 2.0, and was also embossed in rose gold and cut into a narrow banner. A combination of sequins from the Guava Sparkle & Pink Bokeh Couture Mixes finished off the card.
