Slowly catching up after a week of camping. Just before Julee announced that Verve was closing, I bought the beautiful Autumn Blessings stamp set & dies. So glad I did!
Before we left I made & mailed a simple card. The sentiment was free with one of my previous orders--one I will use a lot now that I finally inked it up. The images were colored with glitter glue & Nuvo drops. I used a scrap of Aqua Mist cardstock for the mat. Much prettier in real life with the shine & sparkle.
Edited to add: Thinking this qualifies for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge since I added color to the images--just not with inks or markers.
Couldn't stop looking at Dawn's cards for this week's PTI MIM challenge. They're gorgeous, unique & modern! I knew it would be a challenge for me, but I did thoroughly enjoy making a summer BD card for a blogging friend. The scarey thing was having dies from so many different sets out at one time, but think I managed to get them all back where they belong.
Decided to use Lexi's color combo of Harvest Gold, Green Parakeet & Hawaiian Shores. I also used Aqua Mist for the little stamped leaves. So great to have PTI cardstock that matches the inks & boy do I save every little piece which came in handy for the Harvest Gold die cut flower centers. Still have a bit more of that little strip which I'll eventually use up. At the last minute I added small PTI heavy weight vellum die cut blooms as the bottom layer of the small flowers. Surprising how much that adds. The stamps & dies are Turning a New Leaf, Friendly Flowers, Twig Wreath, Lovely Layers, Mat Stack 3 (cut off the word belated) and Mix & Mat: Flourishes. I added 2 extra layers of cardstock to the panel & mounted the large flower with foam tape. The embellishments are Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops which I used for dots & like glitter glue to the flower centers. I'm also entering The Snippets Playground, SSS Wednesday & WAW.
