This is exciting. I have a ton of My Favourite Things stamp sets, a lot of My Creative Time stamps and dies and some Mama Elephant stamps. From cutesy to elegant, I think I've got it covered!!
For my first card, I went with Mama Elephant. I started by heat embossing some of the florals from the Freestyle Florals ( I linked to the bundle )in white onto some watercolour paper. I used my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers to colour them. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
For the sentiment I used the Blessed stamp set. I also used white embossing powder for this on a navy cardstock panel. I placed the panel onto a white cardbase and added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White.
I even have extra flowers and leaves to play with!!
My next card features My Favourite Things. I've had the Polynesian Paradise Stamp Set and Co-ordinating Dies. I've had this set for a LONG time and have only coloured a couple images from it. I did some amateur no-line watercolour for this. I used the Barely Beige ink from Simon Says Stamp. (Amy Rysavy has used this ink for no-line colouring and I had to give it a try!)
It turned out okay. My shading skills need some improvement! I also used the Blueprints 1 Set to die cut the scalloped panel and used Distress Ink to do some blending. I adhered that panel to a Woodgrain Cardstock base. I white heat embossed the sentiment.
And last but not least, a project using stamps and dies from My Creative Time. I adore Emma's products!! What is awesome is that almost all of her stamps and dies come as a set..I LOVE THAT!!!
I used the Be Awesome stamp and die set to create my focal point. This die set creates what looks like a Post It Note along with other little accessories. I did some ink blending on the "post it" with yellow ink and added a bit of "tape" to the top. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Black Onyx ink.
To dress up my card base a bit, I used the awesome Geo Borders set. I stamped the triangle stamp with some Twirling Tutu ink onto a scrap piece of white cardstock and trimmed it down into strips which created a nice frame for my card panel. To add a bit more something to my "post it", I die cut some flowers and leaves from the Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves die set. I used the same yellow and pink ink and added some Willow ink for the leaves. I foam mounted the panel using foam tape to give a bit of dimension.
I hope you enjoyed my first three "M" projects! I truly had a blast making these.
This letter in the series will take a bit longer than the H's as I have more to work with!!
Thank you so much for following along with me and maybe playing along!!
See you soon!!!
