I leave for a poorly timed family vacation on Friday the 10th - the next day.
You will have a little over 24 hours to order the new product in order for it to leave immediately.
The vacation was planned back in January around my birthday. Next year we're vacationing spur-of-the-moment, far away from the Memory Box release date and not planning ahead in the dead of winter! Happy Summer everyone.
The above photo shows pulled product prior to commencing this notebook project - I used my Evernote program to source key words related to the themed paper in the Graphic 45 Gilded LIly collection. Evernote is how I organize all my crafting product and stamps/dies and I recommend it. Thanks for stopping by today!
Finished card size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches. Metal tape (Home Depot) was adhered to cardstock then run through a sizzix embossing folder - cardstock layers are Bazzill Jade and Lagoon. Sentiment was created on my computer (MFT pierced fishtail flag die) and the gear brad embellishment. Stitched Square dies are Open Studio.
The metal tape from Home Depot comes in three-inch wide spools - it's a great substitute for silver cardstock if you don't need wider than three inches. My rule of thumb is: I use metal tape adhered to cardstock, but if the project calls for anything wider than three inches I use silver cardstock.
These robot images are very fun to color...Father's Day is right around the corner too! Thanks for stopping by!
Using a dry paintbrush and gold Perfect Pearls (the only color I ever seem to use), I highlighted the embossed areas, allowing the warm UTEE and excess Distress Embossing Ink to grip the Pearls. This gave the effect of sunshine and a gorgeous glowing aura.
A wash of Distress Vintage Photo formed a base line on a piece of watercolor paper cut to fit the opening, and the lavender stems and cut-up Botanical Stem pieces were assembled and adhered into place using a combination of rolled Scor Tape and Mono Liquid glue.
The three gems are Swarovski flat-backed crystals.
The mat is a piece of Bazzill Heidi. 8x8 frame is from Doodlebug. Thanks for stopping by!
Obverse side of flourish stencil was inked with various Distress inks, spritzed with water, then positioned onto a sheet of watercolor paper and heat set - Tim Holtz tutorial here. This technique looks great and the clean up is minimal. Die cut with corner design die and randomly inked cutwork with Distress Vintage Photo ink. Added washi tapes and machine stitched into place.
Added unit to Graphic 45 Artisan Style line paper - all on a card base of Bazzill Hillary cardstock.
Row of Poppies was die cut from watercolor paper and painted using a brush, water and Distress re-inkers. Heat set. Inked edges inked with Distress Vintage Photo ink and a blending tool. Grassland Border and Fresh Cut Grass dies layered with the poppies using Hillary cardstock.
Handmade envelope created using more of the Graphic 45 Artisan Style paper. Thanks for stopping by!
