We are starting the NEW Year off right with a Designer Showcase Launch Party. I am honored and blessed to be on the Coach Designer Team with 8 other AMAZINGLY, awesome, talented designers.
I am also launching my NEW series Times 2, I will post two cards every Thursday on my blog. Be sure to Subscribe to my blog so you don't miss out.... also be sure to Subscribe to my bi-monthly newsletter to stay up to date with all the announcements and specials. My newsletters will always include a FREE card tutorial, how fun is that? Well enough talk, lets get to my projects for today.
First up, is a FUN and Joyful 'Thinking of You' card. When Kim Kesti asked us to participate in a launch party, I knew I wanted it to be colorful. This card is so easy to do. I love the stamp set Love Blooms, It is one of our NEW, no line stamps. I am a HUGE fan of these stamps, the detail is so amazing. You just stamp them and they look 3D . It is also one of our Hostess exclusive sets only. All you have to do is gather a few friends and host a party. If you don't live locally, I will send you a Party in a Box, Click HERE to learn more about it.
To create the dots, all I did was use my liquid colors and daubers. **Add some ink to the pad, press onto your card base (I used our Journey Splash Paper) and you have perfect circles every time.
My second card also showcases Love Blooms. This was the first time I inked up the butterfly. I absolutely love how it turned out. I also added some interest by stamping one of my seasoned, well-love, favorite ATS stamps, Postage Stamps. I love to create collage looking cards.
To create the background, I inked my Dauber Dowel Large with Lovely Blue Liquid Color. I applied it first, using the Dot Stencil and a sheet of Journey Color Splash cardstock. I still had some ink left on the stencil, so I spritzed some water on the stencil and was able to make a negative background as well by laying a new piece of cardstok on top of the stencil to pick up the leftover ink. I ended up using the negative one instead, because I loved the soft look of it
Thank you so much for stopping by, please leave a comment so I know you were here. Smiles
Enjoy the Journey,
For me stamping and card-making is therapeutic art. I love to express myself to others by creating beautiful handmade cards. This is my emotional outlet. In return, I reap great rewards from this therapy, personal fulfillment, emotional healing, friendships, and social networking. It fulfills me in so many ways and on so many different levels.
