Hi Crafty Friends! Have you joined Catherine Pooler and friends this week for sneak peeks of the new Flutters and Blooms release available next week? I adore every single item in this release! It is certainly my style with beautiful dies, butterflies, flowers, and gorgeous papers.
Ask me how much I adore the new Garden’s Edge die paired with the Grace In Bloom stamp set. Oh so very much! That die is just about everything I dream of. Isn’t it pretty as a background to those lovely flowers?
I used Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper and stamped the Grace In Bloom flowers with midnight archival ink. Then I watercolored using It’s a Girl, Pixie Dust, Firty Fushcia, Green Tea, and Eucalyptus CP inks, and used the coordinating die to cut out the flowers.
I die cut the Garden’s Edge die from black cardstock and adhered to an A2 card base of CP white cardstock. Then I used craft foam to add dimension and adhere the flowers to the card. Finally, I mixed Perfect Pearls and a little water to Pixie Dust and It’s A Girl ink and splattered over the entire card. Now I admit that I got a little carried away, and next time might not add so many splatters, but I’m still pleased with the result.
What do you think? Do you have any new items on your wish list? Stampnation members can order early beginning Monday, and everyone else can order at 9:00 AM EDT on Wednesday, April 29. Love and crafty hugs!
