Now how about my creations for today?! I’m so excited to show you! First up, I’ve used Mondo Peony stamp set and the matching dies along with a sentiment from the Lovely stamp set to create this framed encouragement that now sits above my craft table. I smile every time I see it!
The beautiful peony was stamped and die cut 3 times. I colored each one with my Clean Color pens and then hand cut a few of the petals from 2 of them to pop up over the full image. I did the same with one set of leaves. The background was all stamped and colored with Distress inks. The beautiful, encouraging sentiment was stamped and heat embossed; then I added some flicks of color as well as a few drops of Glossy Accents.
This card was created from 2 panels of watercolor paper that were used to soak up mixtures of Color Burst and water from my craft sheet. The teal panel had been white embossed by first smooshing Versamark through an acrylic stencil I created using the raindrops die. The orange/yellow panel was cut/embossed using the 2 sun rays dies. Then I die cut a cloud and stamped the sentiment on it. I just love the teal/orange color combo!
So there you have it! Don't forget to leave a comment to win!
