Watercolored Anemones from WPlus 9

I started this card a few weeks ago and just finished it this week.  Wow, we've been busy around here.

The stamp is from the Watercolored Anemones set from WPlus 9 and can be found HERE on our website.  The images were stamped on watercolor paper using VersaMark ink and then heat embossed using the Silver Pearl embossing powder from Ranger.  It's hard to see the pearl finish in the images.  Trust me, its wonderful in person.

After heat embossing, we watercolored the background with Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Seedless Preserves).

The hello was cut from black cardstock using the Simply Said Hello die from Avery Elle.  We covered it in VersaMark ink, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder from Ranger.  That's what gives it that shine.  To make it stand out from the background of the card, we added a strip of vellum under the hello.

Here's a look at the images that are included in the Watercolored Anemones stamp set.

Paper Smooches Best Buds

Today we're sharing a few cards/projects we've created using the Best Buds stamp set from Paper Smooches.  It can be found on our website HERE.  It's such a fun and playful floral set.

The card below was colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  We used Blueprints #23 from MFT Stamps to create the stitched piece as well as the vellum scallops.

Love the simplicity of this card.  We stamped and heat embossed this image with white embossing powder.  The vellum scallop piece was cut using Blueprints #20 from MFT Stamps.

This image was colored using Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  The scallop and stitched pieces were cut using Blueprints #20 from MFT Stamps.

The image below was also colored using Tim Holtz Ditress Inks.  The Treat Topper die is from Avery Elle.

Here's a peek at all the images included in this stamp set.

A Hello Paper Crafting Kit

More fun projects using our Happy Hello Paper Crafting Kit.  Head over to our website to purchase the kit.

The peonies (from the stamp set included in the kit) were stamped and embossed with white embossing powder on watercolor paper. We used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color the peonies.  After die cutting them using the coordinating die, they were added to one of the 3" x 4" cards from the kit.  We added the word "friend" also a stamp from the kit.

We stamped sentiments, from the Pretty Peonies stamp set included in the kit, onto these two 3"x 4" cards, also from the kit.  Added one of the die cut hearts,  and embellished it with an enamel heart (both from the kit).  Super quick and easy card.

Added some of the die cut flowers to one of the 3" x 4" cards for a another quick and easy card.  Green twine is not included in the kit.

Here's a peek at all the goodies included in the kit.
