You guys are going to love these new sets!
For my first card, I used the gorgeous butterfly set Begin Again. I love butterflies and I love this set! I stamped the large butterfly with VersaFine Clair black ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I colored the image with Arteza Real Brush Pens (bumblebee yellow, orange, red) and fussy cut out. I die cut the white panel and splattered with orange and yellow ink. I stamped the sentiment with black ink, put a strip of washi tape underneath it and taped the panel to the yellow card base. As the final step, I attached the butterfly to the white panel, popping it up with foam tape.
For my second card, I used Begin Again and the May Stamp of the Month Encouraging Thoughts. Love the sentiments in the SOTM! I started by stamping the small and medium butterflies from Begin Again in VersaFine Clair black ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I colored with Arteza Real Brush Pens (bumblebee yellow, rouge pink and arctic blue) and fussy cut out. I had a little oops when I was fussy cutting and accidentally cut the antennas off the pink butterfly. My fellow design team member, Sheri Gilson, suggested I stamp the butterfly in black and position my colored one over the top for a bit of depth. I cut the antennas off the other two butterflies, die cut my white layering piece and stamped the butterflies in black ink in the center of the panel, spacing evenly. I stamped the sentiment from Encouraging Thoughts on the layering panel and adhered to the card base. Finally, I attached the butterflies popping them up with foam tape. I think I am finally getting more comfortable with creating clean and simple cards (CAS).
For my last card, I used the beautiful new set In This Together. As many of you know, this was released last month as a digital set. Korin had lots of requests to make it into a clear stamp set, so she did and included a few new sentiments with it. The images are so pretty colored up! I stamped the teacup with Ranger Archival black ink onto Canson XL watercolor paper. I colored the image with Altenew's Spring Garden Watercolor Brush Markers (moss, warm sunshine, rubellite and evening gray) and fussy cut out. I die cut the white panel and green pattern paper. Next, I taped the pattern paper onto the white panel, stamped the sentiment in black and attached the panel to the card base. As the last step, I adhered the teacup with foam tape and glued on a few sequins. I utilized sketch 434 from Freshly Made Sketches for my layout.
Thanks for stopping by and your next stop on the hop is the amazing Lee Ann Barrett!
