Today we are celebrating our new Release with amazing guest designers in this blog hop.

For today’s event I’ve created two cards!


 I used a part of the Thoughtful poppies stamp set to make a circled arrangement of poppies around my big sentiment. I stamped this cluster of three poppies in Caviar Hybrid ink twice to do that. I colored the poppies using Copic markers and added gray shade around the flowers. I then cut out the center part using Double Stitched Circle die. The Sentiment is from The New Pretty stamp set. I gold heat embossed it on a black cardstock and die cut it with the next smaller Double Stitched Circle die. I took a black card base on which I stamped the Freestyle Stripes stamp in Hampton White Pigment ink, glued a piece of dark red cardstock on the right side and assembled the colored panel and sentiment as shown in the picture using some foam adhesive. I added some white dots to the center of two poppies and left the card without any embellishment.


My second card is made with the Dahlia Close Up rubber cling stamp.


I started off by clear heat embossing the Dahlia Close Up on a watercolor cardstock. I then blended pink to violet Distress inks to lift the colors off the image later using paintbrush and clear water. I lifted the colors from ends of petals and added more shades to the inner part of the petals using gray Copic markers to give them more dimension. I then coated the entire panel with clear Wink of Stella. For a camouflaging sentiment I die cut the happy from our Birthday Word dies out of the colored panel and once again from a purple foam. I mounted the panel to the card base then the purple foam and die cut happy to the place and added the BIRTHDAY from the Oscar stamp set which I white heat embossed on some purple cardstock. To finish off I scattered a few sequins from Disco Spring Couture Mix.


That’s it from me today! Make sure to hop along with us for amazing inspirations and of course to get a chance to win one of our giveaways!
