Love Blossoms Fun

On Friday, I did a FB live opening up the Love Blossoms kit as I had just got it in.  You can see the live here. Please “love” and share it! When I get back from the cruise, if we have 25 shares, I’m giving away the mini ink pads. If we have 50 share, I’m giving away the mini ink pads and the Swiss Dot embossing folder!

Here here is what the stamps and card look like.

I made two cards on the fly just so I had a chance to play with the set before I left.

This card was fun and easy. The Swiss Dot embossing folder really make this card look classy. Did you see my solution for those crazy dove tails in the live? Start the middle cut with your cutter!

Use your clear shimmer brush to watercolor in the leaves and highlight the flowers and buds. Use the gold shimmer brush with the Canary ink pad to color in the middle of the flowers.

Stamp the envelopes. These flowers just beg to be seen and showing them off on the envelope will make everyone’s day bright as the letter goes through the mail! check out this live:

Enjoy and pick up the full kit for $55.95! Email me your order and you’ll get $10 through my Cruise Special. Check that out here!  

Thank for stopping by and enjoy the Love Blossoms set. It’s really fun to play with!

Love Blossoms Collection

This collection is amazing and I can’t wait for mine to arrive. Watercolor is one of my favorite ways to color and express myself . This stamp set is designed to make it look like you water-colored these beautiful flowers.

The sentiments are wonderful for either cards or scrapbooking. Here are the one set of the card samples the workshop is designed to create. Note that they embossed both sides of the card with the dots on the folder. You are able to use this folder multiple ways to get different impressions.

Here is the full workshop, including the Swiss Dot embossing folder. The bundle is 20% off – $55.95 USD vs $70+USD!! It’s a great deal. I love these tiny little ink pads included so you don’t have to have stamp pads!

Here is the kit without the folder where you can still save 20% – $47.95 USD vs $60.72!

Look at how beautiful these flowers look! It truly looks as if they are water-colored and all you had do was stamp.

In case you really fall in love with the cards, you can buy more of the basic kit, without the stamps, ink pads, and the folder, so you can make more.

Here’s the last design. Look at how beautiful the cards are with the Swiss Dots folder and just stamping the flowers. So simple yet so elegant!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet to check out this amazing Love Blossom Collection.

Do You Know The Colors Of The Rainbow?

Do You Know The Colors Of The Rainbow?

“Do You Know The Colors Of The Rainbow?” is a song done by Signing Times (a great series to teach kids sign language) that just sticks in your head.  I was humming it while making this wonderful workshop from Studio Sus:

This one just makes my heart happy inside with the bright colors.  Best of all most of the product used in this workshop is on sale!  Best deal right?

 

This workshop is a nice mix of scrapbooking, cardmaking, with some stamping and thin cuts if you choose to do so.

You can purchase the supplies and share/split with a friend.  A few of these cards will make it to the card buffet.  You probably have a lot of the supplies needed hanging around in your craft room.  And if you’ve been doing the workshop from Studio Sus with me, you’ve got a lot of the non-consumable supplies already or have an alternative you’ve been using.  =)
