I'll be showing you two cards using the new "My Tribe" set and lots of fun new Confetti Cuts. You'll have to wait to see my design using the new "Pattern Blocks" on May 8th for the Blog Hop! I hope you'll join us!
I wanted my card to have an earthy feel and I really like how it turned out. It's always fun to see your vision come to life. To begin, I created an A2 top folding card base using the lovely Lead Cardstock. I really like this unique neutral color...it it so perfect for so many cards! I also cut a 5 1/4 inch by 4 piece out of the same cardstock and sewed two pieces of the same size vellum onto it using grey thread. Once it was secure, I tore the top layer.
Yesterday I showcased the fabulous "Polka Panel", but today I used it as and dry embossed piece, which I LOVE. You'll be seeing this treatment again tomorrow, because I love it so much. I just ran it through my Cuttlebug using the tan embossing mat underneath so it would emboss, rather than cut. I did this embossing on a piece of Sand cardstock.
I knew that the previously released Tall Blooms would be the perfect companion to this fabulous sentiment from the "My Tribe" set. I have another card below using another one of the amazing sentiments! I have tons of ideas and not enough time! I may try and squeak one more card to add to the Blog Hop on May 8th!
The blooms are embossed in gold powder, cut using the coordinating Tall Blooms Confetti Cuts and then colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is embossed in gold onto a strip of Stormy Cardstock and I LOVE it!
The "Stitched Squares" confetti cuts makes the perfect frame to highlight the sentiment. I added a few gold nuvo drops for some subtle detail.
My next card used the new "Paper Bliss" pattern paper. I liked the tribal print of the blue and the bright and cheery green. I thought they complemented each other in an unexpected way!
The sentiment, which is also from the "My Tribe" set is heat embossed using gold powder onto a Rose "Stitched Square" panel for an unexpected color combo!
The sentiment piece is adhered to the new "Diamond Stripe Square" confetti cut for some added detail! Thanks for fluttering by!
