I won this set at my monthly team meeting and Pop of Paradise was not a set I would have thought to buy for myself although I did kinda like it and secretly admired. The card uses a lot of In Colours such as Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy and Powder Pink as well as melon Mambo. Very easy fast card good to teach beginners.
I love using the white watercolour pencil to create the appearance of moonlight! It kinda lends itself to a rather soft almost melancholy look. Bright Wishes is a beautiful stamp set to obtain that ambiance. Night has an interesting ability to take away colours and lend itself to the mood. Maybe not a lot of work but nevertheless affective.
I finally have the Flourishing Phrases bundle and just in time before the bundle pricing retires. The Flourish Thinlits and the Flourishing Phrases stamp set are not going to retire from the new catalogue just the bundle pricing will. I only used two colours on this Whisper White and Berry Burst. I love this set and am happy to have it.
I’m so happy when I look at this card! Daisies are a flower which always brings a smile to me and Daisy Delight has brought many smiles to my studio/craft room! This card utilizes both watercolour pencils and white craft ink on top of the cheerful new in colour: Berry Blast and as it has made me happy I hope it shares happiness with you too!
I’m really enjoying this suite! Daisy Delight is so easy to come up with so many possibilities. Who doesn’t Love a stamp with a matching punch. Especially when it happens to have a coordinated DSP! The Faceted Jewels just add a nice touch of bling. And well I just gotta say the 1/4″ Double stitched Ribbon in Daffodil Delight just add that special touch!
I used Bright Wishes stamped in Soft Sky and the coloured the outlines and added some shading with my Stampin Write Markers to come up with this. The sentiment is stamped with Tranquil Tide and I hand drew some little leaves around it with a Lemon Lime Twist Stampin Write Marker. Finally finished with Cajun Craze Enamel Shapes.
I love playing with a new punch! Especially if the punch matches a stamp! I also threw in 3 of the new In Colours: Berry Blast, Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink. The bow looks a bit weird so I’m definitely getting the new In Colour mini bows. Then I’ll have them already tied.
Today I am posting a card which is made with the Sunshine Sayings Bundle. This bundle was introduced in the last catalog and is carrying forward into the new catalog. I also used the layering Circles dies and a retired heart punch. The colours are Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Flirty Flamingo, and Melon Mambo ink for the Happy Birthday. I’m so glad I managed to squeeze this set in before the bundle retired due to the 10% savings. In the new catalog the stamps and dies have to be bought separately. There are a few weeks left for the old catalog to be available for ordering bundles and I plan on getting as many of the bundled items as I can afford. There will be new bundles in the new catalog.
This time while using the Eastern Palace Suite I didn’t use any of the new in-colours instead I used Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Very Vanilla. Also this time I only used the stamp set from the suite. This was a lot of fun and the composition kinda fell in place as I went! I finished by embellishing with enamel shapes. Unfortunately these ones have retired.
Today the Eastern Palace Suite is available for customers. If you wish to have it let me know and I will contact you. This is a monotone style card made with that suite. The colours are Fresh Fig and Very Vanilla and I used the dies, stamps and a strip of the DSP. Simple but clean. And guess what? I didn’t use Lemon Lime Twist 😂
