We made two cards using the retiring Florence papers (X7208B). The one below made use of the Bunch of Love stamp set (C1647) and coordinating thin cut dies (Z3251). The rose gold foil tape (Z3218) was added, along with some of the rose gold sequins included in the Florence Sequins (Z3213). All of these products are featured in the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog, and they are only available until the end of August - so if you are interested, head over to my CTMH Shopping Site to get yours before they are gone! (One exception - the rose gold foil tape is being carried over into the new Annual Inspirations book!)
The next card also used the Florence papers, but all of the stamps are from the new Annual Inspirations book. The stamps are Birthday Sparkles (B1537) - sentiment and sparkles on front, Wise Guy Birthday (C1662) - cake and stand, and Way to Go (D1700) - border garland. A strip of Gold Glitter paper (Z3238) was added as a border, and the shimmer pen (Z3293) was used to add some dazzle to the frosting area of the cake.
We used the new Whimsy Fundamental Papers (Z3255) for this fun card, along with the new Hearts Thin Cut Dies (Z3260). The Operation Smile stamp set True Love (D1711) was used on the top card, and Happy Heart (A1192) on the bottom card. A little shimmer pen was used to accent the heart, and a couple of Clear Sparkles (Z3274) were added. Cardstock colors are Whisper, Sweet Leaf and Crystal Blue.
The final card used an inking technique featured several weeks ago on the Close to My Heart Blog.
Facebook business page. The paper used is from the Rustic Home Fundamentals (Z3262). I love the fact that the woodgrain papers are grey on one side and brown on the other! Kraft and Slate cardstock were used to mount the watercolor panel. Stamp sets are Nature's Wish (D1703) - the trees, and Hooked on You (B1535) - the fish and the sentiments.
Stay tuned for an early preview of the cards for September's Stamp Club - I will post them before the class meets! Thanks for stopping by - and I hope you enjoy your weekend.
