Airbrushed Flowers Take 1

Pairing up the Airbrushed flowers with the Window Slats embossing folder. I kept the outline ink in the same colour tones as the flowers and leaves.

Spring Chicken

I have so many flower stamps (which I love) but these days, I'm also looking to see if I can make cards that bring a smile. We so need more smiles and laughter in these difficult times.

This Hey Chick set is such fun ... and I've taken artistic license with the colours. I didn't have Birthday Chicken set, so I typed up and printed my sentiment before die-cutting the sign.

It's been a while since I posted on my blog or instagram. I've had a lot going on in real life the last 9 months.

This is a card I made a while back as part of a series made by die-cutting card stock that I had distressed in rainbow colours - last one! (The first card can be found here, and the second set of 2 is here and the 3rd here).

Two Tone Tortoise

Digging into some new stamps ... and since I've been slow about it, I'll start with the tortoise!

Airbrushed Flowers

Love the combination of Floral Lace and the Airbrushed Flowers ... so soft and romantic. I decided not to make the outlines in black but in a darker shade of the petals and leaves.

Not sure if I should put the sentiment on the front. So pretty on it's own.

So I did a second and tried with the sentiment.

What do you prefer?

At the Pool

 Love the fun young look of the Ellen Hutson Everything''s Beachy stamp set. Paired with my new Altenew Rows of Squared embossing folder ... as tiles around the pool.

I used a Pebble Stencil for the water ripples by moving it around and re-inking. I'm waiting to get my MFT pool stencil.

Use them all!

 I still had more flowers in my "left over" pile. Decided to put them all on one card. Popped them all up to give dimension.

Added some doodle dots to the background and used one of the fine frames for edging.

CASE a card

I'm trying to use up all the bits and pieces left all over my desk. Sometimes a stamp a bunch of layered flowers, but then I don't use them all.

CASEing the card from Global Design Project, I decided to use embossing paste as the background. 

I love the lightness of this flower when you use only one of the layers. Then I added a few extra dashes with Copics to add another tone.

Trying to get the angle to sheow the embossing paste. I added the yellow ink to match the middle of the flower.

Sorry I've been MIA for a while - life has been crazy these past few months.

In the meantime, I've had so many orders arrive so I have a ton of new products to use. I started with this wonderful Window Slats embossing folder from Altenew paired with one of the Coneflowers.
