For my first card, I white heat embossed our new Thankful Chrysanthemum set. Then I added vibrant watercolors to color the image (Fuchsia, Lime Green and Gamboge Color Bursts). After I finished painting, I die cut my panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangle dies (small) set. Then I made my own glitter cardstock using our Red Glitter Adhesive paperRed Glitter Adhesive paper.  Next I mounted my painted panel onto my glitter base. Lastly, I added Clear Dew Drops to embellish my card. chrys red glitter 2

For my next card, I used our Celebration Rose Cluster and Daffodil Greetings sets.

I started off by rose gold heat embossing our Celebration Rose Cluster in the corner of my A2 sized watercolor panel (Canson XL 140lb watercolor paper). Then I masked the rose cluster and partially heat embossed our Daffodil Greetings next to my rose cluster. This is a great way to stretch your floral cluster stamps – add additional florals to create a different/larger floral cluster!

After I heat embossed my customized cluster, I painted them with color bursts. Instead of blending out my first layer of color, I applied a very concentrated amount of paint and added shading to the petals using a second hue. For my roses, I used Alizarin Crimson and Merlot color bursts. For my daffodils, I used Gamboge and Tangerine. For my leaves, I used Lime Green and Terre Vert. For my background, I used Turquoise bursts. After I finished painting, I added stitching to the edges of the panel using our Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (large) set. Next I popped up my white embossed sentiment banner and embellished my card with clear rhinestones.

rose close up color pencils

For my last project, I merely stamped Rose Close Up and did some no line coloring.

To color, I started off with a first layer of a light copic marker. Then I added more color and depth using 4 color pencils (Faber Castell Polychromos). After I finished coloring this piece, I didn’t have the heart to cut it up to turn it into a finished card (it took me more than an hour to just color this piece). I will likely frame this later on.  However, I still wanted to showcase this piece for today.

I apologize for the lack of cards today! I am hoping that quality of my work compensates for the quantity (or lack thereof) for today.

For this release, we are doing things a bit differently.  Our team has not made any cards for Release Week as their stamps are on their way to them as we speak.  However, you will see their gorgeous creations at the end of the month where we will have a fun blog hop with prizes!

daffodil greetings

For my first card showcasing our new GWP stamp, I created a field of sunny daffodils. I started off by rose gold heat embossing each daffodil cluster across my watercolor panel. Then I painted each cluster using a combination of Lemon Yellow and Orange Color Bursts. The greenery was painted using a mixture of Sap Green, Terre Vert and Prussian Blue bursts. I added stitching to the edges of my panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles (large) set. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from our new Country Rose Cluster onto the panel with our crisp black Noir Dye Ink Pad.

Now onto the rest of the release!

tulip bouquet 1

Photo taken against our Smooth White Wood Backdrop Board, 12×12 inch

For my first card, I started off by gold heat embossing the floral section of our Tulip Bouquet onto an A2 sized card panel. I partially heat embossed the bouquet to obtain a mirror image effect. Then I watercolored the florals using Color Bursts (Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Red and Sap Green). Next I heat embossed the sentiment panel strip and popped it up onto my card in the center of my bouquets. I adhered my watercolored panel onto a side folding A2 black card base and lastly embellished my card with some clear rhinestones.

tulip bouquet 2

For my next project, I rose gold heat embossed the tulip bouquet and then watercolored the image with color bursts (peony and sap green). Then I embossed the vase onto kraft cardstock and trimmed it near the base so that it would taper off to look like my bouquet was newly wrapped/packaged. I added some character to my “vase” by adding shading with zig markers. Next I added the bow and clear rhinestones to complete my card.

tulip bouquet 3

Photo taken against our Peach Marble Backdrop Board, 12×12 inch

 

For my last bouquet card, I stamped  my tulips onto cardstock with our Copic friendly Caviar Hybrid Ink. Then I colored in the image using a combination of Copics, a red Copic Spica glitter pen and a micron black pigment ink pen.

For my next card, I continued my copic coloring to bring our new Country Rose Cluster to life. Other supplies used: Copic Friendly Hybrid Ink

country rose two tone

For my next card, I chose a two toned palette for my Country Roses. Then I blended some Bright Emerald Dye Ink onto white cardstock and added blue watercolor splatters for texture.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from our Daffodil Greetings in our crisp black Noir Dye Ink onto the blended panel and, finally, I popped up the cluster onto the blended panel. country rose two tone2

For my next card, I rose gold heat embossed the corners of m panel with our Country Rose Custer and then watercolored the images using Peony and Sap Green Color Bursts. Then I stamped the sentiment in our Noir Dye Ink. Next I added stitching to the edges of my panel using the largest dies form our Double Stitched Rectangles (large) die set.

For my next card, I channelled my inner Amy Tsuruta! I stamped our Country Rose Cluster onto an A2 card panel in our light Crystal Pewter Dye ink. Then I stamped the Hugs sentiment in our Noir Dye Ink right over the cluster. I adhered the stamped panel onto a black card panel and then adhered the entire panel onto a gray top-folding cardbase.

For my next card, I white heat embossed my Loose Roses onto the corners of my watercolor panel. Next I watercolored the florals and leaves utilizing a blue and gray color palette. For this card, I painted with Color Bursts and embellished with our Clear Dew Drops.

For my last card, I gold heat embossed our Loose Roses onto vellum and arranged them around my Modern Label sentiment. Next I clear embossed our Rose Terrace stamp onto gray cardstock. I then took the second largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles (small) set to die cut the Rose Terrace Panel. Then I mounted my Modern Label onto my Terrace panel. Once that was complete, I accented my roses with gold embossed foliage.

That’s all from me today! I hope you liked my projects!

For today, I have two cards and videos to share! Let’s start!

blue magnolias

Photo taken against our 12x12in White Marble Backdrop Board

For my first card, I used our new Magnolia Fields cling background stamp.

I started off by rose gold heat embossing the stamp onto an A2 sized watercolor panel.  Next, I painted each magnolia a soft cerulean blue using Ken Oliver Color Bursts to give my florals a nice base color. Then I added three layers of shading to the larger magnolia images using my zig markers (No 36 Light Blue, No 31 Cobalt Blue, No 32 Persian Blue).

blue magnolias 1blue magnolias 2blue magnolias 3

 

For the smaller florals, I only added the first layer of shading.

blue magnolias 4

Once my florals were complete, I watercolored the background/negative space with a deep Prussian Blue color burst. As I set the panel aside to dry, I created my banner sentiment using our Basic Banners and coordinating die. I only partially embossed the banner because I knew I would be cutting off the right half of it. I didn’t want to use the entire banner because I wanted to change up the way I used this set.

blue magnolias 5

Prior to popping up my banner onto my painted panel, I added stitching to the edges of my painted panel using the largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangles (large) die set. Once the sentiment was popped up, I trimmed the excess which left me with a half banner with great interest. Then I added some shading with watercolor onto my banner to give it a bit of dimension. Lastly, I popped up my panel onto a side folding A2 card and then embellished it with 7mm and 5mm Clear Dew Drops.

nutcracker scene

For my next card, I created a festive scene using our Holiday Ballet set.

I started off by stamping my nutcracker and ballet figures on cardstock with our copic friendly Caviar Hybrid Ink. Then I colored everything in with copic markers. For my ballerinas, I added white gel pen stippling/dots to give their outfits a faux glitter finish. Then I cut my figures out with my electric cutting machine (although dies are available now, I did not have them at the time of making this card). I set my figures aside and proceeded to build my scene.

nutcracker scene 2

For my scene, I started off by stamping our Mountains on a horizontal A2 cardbase with our Pewter Collection Inks. Then I created a mask for my mountains and added shading (Miami Cool Dye Ink) behind them.  Next I stamped the second layer of our Mini Pine Tree multiple times across a separate piece of cardstock in our Everglade Moss Dye Ink.  Then I stamped the third layer of our Pine in our Hampton White Pigment Ink. I trimmed  my pine tree panel and fussy cut the top portion of my line of trees. Then I stamped the bottom portion of that panel with some more pigment ink so that I could heat emboss that area with white embossing powder for a snowy effect.

nutcracker scene 3

Once the heat embossing was finished, I stamped some trees from our Mountains set in our Noir Dye Ink behind my Pine Trees. Then I adhered my line of Pine Trees onto my mountain panel and then ran the entire panel through my big shot machine with the largest die in our double stitched rectangles to add stitching to the edges. Next I stamped the sentiment (Noir Dye Ink), snowflakes (Dusty Blues Collection) and tiny stars (Dusty Blues Collection) in the background. Once the scene was complete, I popped up my figures with dimensional foam tape.

GIVEAWAYS

Three new release stamps will be given away to random commenters from the hop participant blogs. To qualify, you must leave a comment on here on this post. Each comment you leave on the hop participant blogs will increase your chances of winning a giveaway.  The comment period will close on Monday, September 11th at 11:59pm.

That’s all from me today!  I hope you enjoyed today’s cards and videos! Your next stop on our Hop is the amazing Vera!

Jenny created a beautiful alternative tropical card using our Waterfall set.

waterfall

I started off by stamping the horizontal water stamp in our Cobalt Breeze ink. This stamp guides me on where I should stamp my actual waterfall. For my waterfall, I used our Cali Blue and Parisian Blue inks. Then I stamped the layers of the rocks in our Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz inks. Lastly, I filled up all the white space with the different foliage stamps that come in the same set. I also heat embossed additional mini waterfalls on the rocks with silver glitter embossing powder. I added my sentiment right onto my rock structure to complete my one layer card.

Let’s get started with my projects for today!

anem bouquet hop.jpg

Photo taken against our Bokeh White Backdrop Board

For my first project, I heat embossed our Anemone Bouquet, Marvelous Perfumes and Haute Stacks with our Rose Gold embossing powder. Then I proceeded to watercolor! For my bouquet, I watercolored the image with Color Burst Powders (Peony, Sap Green and Lemon Yellow). I used Cerulean Blue Color Bursts for the vase/bottle and Turquoise and Sap Green for the books.

anem bouquet hop 2

After I finished watercoloring, I heat embossed the banner and sentiment in the same rose gold powder.  Then I added Prussian Blue watercolor shading to my banner. Once everything was colored, I die cut everything with their coordinating dies.

anem bouquet hop 3

Next I clear heat embossed our Anemone Garden background stamp onto navy cardstock. For a bit more interest, I added stitching to the edges with our Double Stitched Rectangles (large) die set. Lastly, I popped everything up onto my navy embossed panel and added our Clear Dew Drops around my bouquet in 7mm and 5mm sizes.

mountain hop

Photo taken against our Gray Stone Backdrop Board

For my next card, I created a sunset mountain scene with florals in the foreground.  I started off by stamping our new layered Mountains set with our Crystal Pewter Collection Inks. Then I fussy cut the mountain – at the time of the video, I had to fussy cut because I did not have the dies yet but they are available now!

Next I heat embossed two Summer Blooms in our Rose Gold embossing powder and watercolored them with Color Bursts (Peony, Gamboge/Marigold and Sap Green/Prussian Blue).  Next I die cut the florals using the coordinating die.

mountain hop 3

Then I watercolored my sunset on separate watercolor paper.  I used Gamboge, Cerulean Blue and Prussian Blue Color Bursts. I had to make sure I didn’t blend the Gamboge and Cerulean Blue too much because I did not want a green sky.

After my sky was completely dried, I ended up trimming the top of my sky panel because there was not enough of the golden portion of the sunset peeking through the mountains. After I trimmed the sky, I added blended some True Navy Dye Ink to the top edge of the sky panel for more depth.  This gave me a nice gradation from gold to deep blue.

mountain hop 2

Then I assembled my card by adhering the sky panel onto a heavyweight cardbase. I used our strong Double Sided Adhesive since my sky panel warped after I applied my heat gun to it to speed up the drying process. Next I popped up the mountain with a single layer of foam tape. I then popped the peonies up with a double layer of foam tape. Then I trimmed all the excess floral bits from the edges of my card. I finalized my card by adding Glass Slippers sequins for shine.

GIVEAWAYS

Three $25 gift certificates to our shop will be given away to random commenters from the hop participant blogs. To qualify, you must leave a comment here.

I’m so excited to add this Book Life edition to our City Girls Collection. For this set, you can mix and match the elements to create a complete look.  I was inspired to create this set with the books and encouraging sentiments based on studying due to my scholastic background. This is a great set to create uplifting cards for those people in your life that are studying for school or exams. Apart from the scholastic element, the set also comes with a floral cluster that make this a versatile set.

Our new Sunnies set is a fabulous and chic stamp set that features three gorgeous sunglass frames with equally fabulous sentiments.

Our new Watercolor Wreaths set features abstract florals that you can stamp to achieve a watercolored look on your paper crafts.

 

Our new Peony Terrace features an abstract floral design in a large 6×6 pattern .

All new products are now available in our shop! Before you head over,  please enjoy the gallery of samples created by our talented team!
