Summer Floral Tea Set ~ Victorine Originals ~ SCLBH2017 ~ #7

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals Blog. In keeping with the current challenge I Chose to use the Color Palette as my guide when I watercolored this card. I chose to use Tea Cup and Tea Pot for my inspiration today.



Card Recipe:
Tea Cup and Tea Pot stamped on Canson watercolor paper using Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Soft Graphite.  I then die cut the stamped paper using a Kat Scrappiness stitched fancy scalloped rectangle dies. I used Gansai Tambi watercolors to paint the entire image.  Lastly I used a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp - Hand Lettered Encouragement stamped in a very pale grey pigment ink from my stash. Layer was then affixed to a pre-patterned card base also from my stash

Card Recipe;
Digital Patriotic Coffee from a freebie set Verve Stamps offered during the 2016 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Printed on Spectrum Noir paper then fussy cut.  I colored it with a red Copic marker and used blue stickles to fill in the stars. Once I was happy I used puffy paint for the whipped cream and once dry I heat set/puffed it with my heat gun. I created the green straw by applying glossy accents on green paper and letting it dry. Star Frame is an Avery Elle die, cut from matte silver paper from my stash. I created the flag using washi tape from my stash. Blue stars are also leftover die cuts from a previous project.

Mer-Mazing Birthday ~ KDB

Good Morning Dreamerz

This morning I am sharing with you a cute birthday card with an "Under the Sea" theme. I used the file's Cutesy Mermaid Friends and Pretty Little Mermaid. I created the card using my digital editing program and combined the files for a fun whimsical look. 
Not going to lie to you I am awful at shaker cards so when I saw this video by Jennifer McGuire showing the technique of using tulle, I had to try it.  It worked!! This is going to be my shaker style from here on out. 

 Front of card

 Front of card slightly open to show shaker window detail

inside of card

Card Recipe:
Digital images uploaded to my editing program and arranged on top of a digital paper background that looks a bit like water. Printed on Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium cardstock. Card base is Neenah Classic Crest Solar White smooth 110pd cardstock. I used post it not paper to hold the printed image to the base layer and die cut the scalloped circle with my die cutting machine. I used a very fine light silver tulle mesh to create the shaker window. 


Thanks for stopping by the Blog today and have a great day!
