There's also another fun promo going on that you'll want to take advantage of if you're still building your ink collection! I love the Pinkfresh Studio inks...so many fun colors! You can see all of the ink pads HERE. Just a reminder...it is only on the FULL SIZE ink pads!
And now, on to the projects! Up first is a sweet Christmas designs using a few of the new products paired with a few older ones as well! I love mixing and matching all of my supplies to get new and fun results! To begin, I used the FABULOUS new Diamond Plaid Stencil inked in Ballet Slippers and Coral Reef inks! I love the two toned look that you can achieve with this two step stencil! I also used the new Overlapping Leafy Wreath which is a four step stencil to get the different colored wreath!
I added the fun new Essentials: Stitched Scalloped Rectangles that were released last month. I used the slimline version last month, so I was excited to use the smaller version on this card! I split it apart and only used the inward facing scallops for a different look.
It's no secret how much I love using the different alphabets on my card designs! I die cut the J, and Y from the Heather Uppercase die set out of glitter cardstock and added a Layered Snowflake to use in place of the letter O.
I heat embossed the sentiment in black onto a strip of vellum and then wrapped it around the entire focal image and secured it in the back with adhesive. I added a bow and some jewels to finish off this festive design!
My second card for today uses the new Garden Florals Layered Stencil and Garden Florals die. I die cut the paper first and then used the different stencils to create this floral bouquet.
I had a lot of fun creating this background as well, using the new Simple Plaid Stencil. This time I used Ocean Breeze and Mermaid Cove inks to achieve this two-tone design. I also used the outer portion of the Essentials: Stitched Scalloped Rectangles for this card. It created the perfect frame to add the flowers.
I heat embossed the "Love you my friend" sentiment, which is from the You are my Favorite stamp set, and then die cut it using the useful Essentials: Basic Label Frames. I added it over the top of the flowers using foam squares.
I also added a bow using hot glue underneath the sentiment. The ink splatter gives the card a bit more detail and definition.
I had so much fun creating with these new products! Don't forget to head to the other designers' blogs to see how they've used these new products! Thanks for fluttering by!
