For my card, I used the new Lemon Lush Background stamp. Such a pretty stamp with lots of detail. I had so much fun painting it with the Pinkfresh Studio Liquid watercolors



I used some white acrylic paint to speckle it after the watercoloring was dry.

Concord & 9th: Meadow Blossoms & Brushed Stripe Background





Hi there! I am super excited to be guesting with Concord & 9th this month! I love their products so much, and the February release is just beautiful! I have a card to share with you today using the new Meadow Blossoms Stamp set, Meadow Blossoms Die and the Brushed Stripe Background.



For this card, I used the Brush Striped Background and stamped it onto white card stock with a light tan ink. I used the tiny splatter stamp that comes with the set, to add the little speckles you see around. 



I stamped the beautiful Meadow Blossoms stamp with black ink onto Bristol Board Card stock and colored it with my Polychromos colored pencils. I cut this out with the Meadow Blossoms Dies and adhered it to the background with foam tape.



I stamped a sentiment from the Meadow Blossoms stamp set onto black card stock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I cut this out and added it to the card with foam tape.

You can find the products I used today linked below!

The Greetery: Lily & Palm Capsule Collection Release




Hi there! Today is the first day of the countdown for the February Release from The Greetery!

The new collection this month is called Lily & Palm and it has some beautiful products that are designed specifically for Easter, but many of them will also work for  different seasons and events.  This month The Greetery is releasing : Caring Cross stamp set and dies, BotaniCuts Lily and Gatherings Creative Kit: Easter Jubilee. I'm super excited about The Greetery's first kit! I have been a huge fan of Betsy's kits! 

The products I've used on my projects today will be available at The Greetery on Friday, Feb 14th at 9:00 AM EST.



My first card uses the beautiful new Caring Cross Stamp set and coordinating dies. I lightly blended some blue ink for the background and also very lightly stamped some of the palm leaves.



 I used some woodgrain white card stock to die cut the cross, and layered that with foam tape. I also added some flowers and a few little green leaves from the Fleur Impressions stamp set.



My next card uses the beautiful new Botanicuts Lily dies. These are really fun and turn out so lovely! I cut the pieces out of Bristol board card stock and colored them with Distress inks and distress markers.




The background was created by blending distress ink and then splattering with the same ink. The sentiment is the new Let's Have a Word: Happy die cut and the tiny Happy Easter is from the Caring Cross Stamp set.



My next projects were all created with the new Gatherings Creative Kit: Easter Jubilee. The kit has stencils, stamps and dies that work together to create this adorable Easter card. 



The kit also comes with the sentiments and the tiny tag die to cut them out. So easy and fun to create beautiful Easter cards!



For this card, I decided to go with mostly blue tones. I stenciled and stamped the tulips in blue and then tucked in a few flowers and leaves from the Pine Blossom Stamp set.


I also added a few pink berries around with some pink acrylic paint and a stylus.


And then I had to do one more fun thing :) I just love the Easter Alpha and I wanted to do something else with it other than just spell Easter. Well, look what I came up with! You wouldn't believe all of the words you can make with those few letters! haha! I made this cute little tag out of scraps. It is not even a tag die, just a strip of white card stock, with some pink card stock added at the end and a strip of striped patterned paper along the bottom. This would look so cute on an Easter basket of goodies!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects with these beautiful new products!

Pinkfresh Studio: Botanical Rectangle



Hi there! I have a couple of cards up on the Pinkfresh Studio blog today, but wanted to share them here on my blog as well. I'm using the beautiful new Frame Builder: Botanical Rectangle dies, Phrase Builder: Sending dies and Phrase Builder: You dies from the January release.


For my first card, I blended some Aquamarine dye ink onto my cardstock with blending brushes. I cut the dies out with white cardstock and adhered them to the card with liquid glue. I then filled in all of the sections with different colors of cardstock.


I used a small section of the leaf die for the small leaves at the bottom. For the sentiment, I die cut the sending and love from the Phrase Builder: Sending dies. I cut the bottom portion from white cardstock and the top part from colored cardstock. I added these to my card with foam tape.

***



For my next card, I used the same Aquamarine dye ink and blended on white cardstock for the background. I used the leafy die section from the Frame Builder: Botanical Rectangle dies on this card, and again cut it out of white cardstock. I adhered this with liquid glue and filled the sections in with colored cardstock.



 The love was cut out using the Phrase Builder: Sending Dies, and the you was cut out with the Phrase Builder: You dies.  Again, I used white for the base and cut the top portion out of colored card stock.  These were adhered to the card with foam tape.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

Kay :)

New Products will be in the shop on Friday, January 17 at 10 am EST


So my first card uses a bit of everything! I love doing collage type cards, and these new products lend themselves to that type of card, so I went to town! I used Signed & Sealed stamps and dies, Signed and Sealed With a Kiss Stamps and dies, Pretty Postmarks Stamps and Window Pane Plaid stamp  



I just partially stamped the Window Pane background in red and blended some of the same color ink lightly over that. I then speckled with the same color mixed with a bit of water.

My second card is also a collage type card. This time  I primarily used the Pretty Postmarks stamps and dies, but also used some images from Signed & Sealed with a Kiss.  



The background was stamped first with some of the images from Pretty Postmarks and speckled with some brown dye ink mixed with water.

***


My third card uses the new Postal Frames dies along with the Window Pane Plaid background stamp, Signed & Sealed with a Kiss stamps and dies and a sentiment from the new Sentiment Suite: Love stamps, which you will see more of tomorrow.
