You should have arrived to my blog by way of Mayline! I have made a bunch of projects and videos with this release, but since this is a blog hop and there are lots of blogs and projects to see, I’ll be posting the rest of my creations over the next several weeks! I have two cards to share with you today! One of them has a video to go along with it so how about we start with that one…
My first card features one of my favorite sets from the release… Vogue Skies! I begged for a skyline stamp set and look at this gorgeous set she created! It far exceeded my expectations! I paired the skyline image from the set with some Faber Castell Gelatos and some glossy black sequins (I know, I used sequins, can you believe it?)
You can watch the video right here on my blog or over on my youtube channel in HD by clicking HERE! And if you haven’t already, I’d love it if you would subscribe to my channel to stay up to date on all my crafty videos! 🙂
And a few close ups of the card (I made this card to send to my parents once I move, sniff sniff):
Totally off topic, do you see the red blob underneath the word away??? Doesn’t it look like someone doing a fist bump in the air? See the legs, the body and the arm going up in the air? LOLOLOL! SO FIST BUMP TO THIS RELEASE!
Onwards and upwards as they say! Let’s move on to my next project. My next card features The Lucky Tulip stamp set. How GORGEOUS and detailed is this tulip image. Swoon….. I kept this card simple. I stamped the image with Versamark ink and heat set it with The Ton’s Rose Gold embossing powder (double swoon) and watercolored the image with my Mission Gold Watercolors.
I fussy cut out the tulip and popped it up with foam dimension onto a card panel I sprayed with some Brutus Monroe Liquid Elements in the color Guilded and some Picked Raspberry Distress Spray. I stamped the sentiment with Noir Black ink and voila, card is finished! Check out the sparkle of the Rose Gold embossing powder!
That’s all I’ve got today! LOL! But wait! That’s not true! I did mention GIVEAWAY!!!! Be sure to hop on over to my friend Jess!!!!! I’m sure she has something amazing in store for you!
