December 2018 Reveal, Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!
Finally the day has arrived and the December 2018 Reveal, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY is here! The Release will be available to purchase HERE at a NEW time of 9pm GMT tonight.
Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, where I have formally introduced all the NEW products. Now I have a couple more cards to share using some of the new stamps & stencils.
First up I have a card using Wonderful Day…
I thought I’d start with a bright and cheerful card 🙂 When I made my previous Wonderful Day cards I shared HERE, I stamped a bunch of the layered solid flower blooms in a variety of colours. These were 3 that were leftover and perfect to pop on a card.
I kept the card really simple with the Wonderful Day sentiment, embellishing the flowers with a leaf & foliage sprig and some Glossy Simply White Nuvo Drops. I added dimension to just the one pink flower and whole panel is adhered to the card base using foam adhesive too.
Next I had to use Pure Florals: Peony…
This time I stamped and embossed the smaller Peony bloom with VersaMark & Detail White EP onto watercolour card. I then used my Altenew watercolours to colour the blooms. Again, I am no expert at colouring or watercoloring, but having embossed the flowers, it gives you a line to keep inside. Plus with Peony flowers being so ‘fluffy’ and full you can get away with a more free style and artistic approach to colouring. Well, that’s my thinking anyway 😉
The sentiment is just one of the options from the stamp set and again I fussy cut and layered the blooms, with just the top left adhered with foam adhesive for a little dimension.
Lastly, I went Christmassy and used the Stencil In The Forest…
To create this card I used Distress Oxide Inks in Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive and Forest Moss. I secured my card layer and stencil in place and then loosely masked around each tree to selectively colour it with one of the trio of greens. It was quite a timely process, but the result is pretty cool.
I tied some red bakers twine with a bell bow to make the card resemble a Christmas gift and added the Jingle Bells sentiment from Simply Said Blocks Christmas.
That’s all I have to share with you for today, but I know that the team have an abundance of inspiration to show you using the new products.
