Hello there TCP fans! If you've arrived here from Lynn's blog, you're on the right track! Have you been inspired? Have you picked your favorites for this release? This release is a doozie of fabulousness isn't it!?! Amazing stuff this time right? I've included the blog hop line-up at the end of my post so if you get lost, you can come back and reset your navigational beacon. ;)
Today, I'm featuring several of the newest products in this month's release:
7. Gem Wand
To create my first card, I stamped the Eiffel Tower stamp from the Travel Stickers set onto a piece of white cardstock over and over again with pink and then with wine colored ink. I then splattered with gold ink and some metallic silver ink. Next, I diecut the Spring Flower Duo die onto a piece of white cardstock so that I could overlay it over the stamped images. After it was overlayed, I attached some ribbon and golden pearls, added a pink button and a little veneer heart.
To finish off this card, I added some sequins here and there using the new Spring Mix sequins. I love the little sequin grabber! It makes picking up and gluing itty bitty sequins so easy! As you can see below, I also added a bit of black linework around the sentiment and some random dots on the floral portion of the diecut.
My next card features one of the dies from the Four Seasons die set as well as the Chichen Itza Mexico stamp from the Travel Stickers Set. I stamped the travel sticker with opaque white ink so that it could become a bit of my background. Splattering some of the white ink onto the panel helped add some texture too.
To add layers to my card, I diecut the stitched squares and more and cut them out to allow for a fun framed element that I could use on my card. After diecutting and assembling the cruise ship image, I mounted it onto my card panel and added some of the green Holo sequins. I think these sequins have a beautiful aqua-like green hint in the colors and it reminded me of my trip to Mexico several years back.
A closer peek at my card panel shows the pyramid image on the stamp set.
Thanks for hopping over. Now it's time to hop on over to Wendy's blog to check out her creations! See you soon!
