Today was just a day to try out my new dies and new ink pads while using some paper scraps. First up is the flower made using Tim Holtz's tattered flowers die. I made many layers of the flowers and inked them using Fired Brick and Black Soot. I sprinkled them with water and dried them with a heat gun. I then wet them again and curled the edges under then I started to layer them. I really liked the way that this giant flower turned out.
The next two cards were made using the Lost and Found paper pack by MME. I LOVE this paper!!! LOVE love love. The Bubble Gum solid paper is by Bazzil. The chipboard is by House of Three. The scallop oval is a spellbinder die. The string is flower thread by DMC. Camera is by K&Co.
The Paris card is made using the same Lost and Found paper and the House of Three chipboard. I added an Effiel Tower stamp from the $1 bin at Michael's, a prima flower and tulle from a wedding.So very sweet card uses K&Co patterned paper and Bazzil yellow cardstock. The scallop is again a spellbinders die. Chipboard by House of Three, the owl punch by Martha Stewart and the stickles are Distress. The #8 is by 7 Gypsies.
The last card is a manly card. I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder, distress stickles, alcohol inks and fragment. All the paper is the same paper from the other red/yellow cards. The string was bought at CKC. The punch was made by Stampin UP! For the look on the fragment I took alcohol inks in cranberry, latte, and caramel and put a couple of drops of each on my felt pad. I added a drop of blending solution then bounced the felt pad on the fragment. It does not take long to dry at all! Once it was dry I flipped it over and stamped "dream" using stazon! I love the look!!! I sanded the cardstock so the white core would show through. I love that look too.
