Were you able to join us at Gina K's party last night? We has so much fun chatting with everyone.
This is the card I shared last night at Gina K's release party. I made the card for the sample of a challenge I am co-hosting with Theresa Momber. The challenge is" Spring Theme" and all you have to do is make a project using spring colors or flowers.
Check out all the details here.The stamp set is one of the new releases called Easter Blessing. These Lillie's are stamped with mementos tuxedo black ink and colored with copics. I used the masking technique to create additional flowers for the image. The designer paper is Delicate Dots which is offered during the SU's sell-e-bration.
I love to hear about the different crafting tools, embellishment, paper, etc... that people have used and love or used and do not like at all. I want to share a few things I recently bought and just loved.
One of the items I shared on Tues called Memories Mist in Sparkling Silver. I also bought the Bright Gold color. I just love this stuff and how you can control the amount of color and shimmer you want. I used the gold for this card on the two punched borders.
Have you used Eyelet Rain Drops before? OMG, I wish I would have bought these sooner! They come a variety of colors and each color pack as different shades of that color and different sizes of eyelets. I used these eyelets for my ribbon/bow on the card I am sharing today. I love that you just punch the hole and stick the eyelet dot over it, how easy is that! The little dots I put in the corners and on the sentiment are also from the pack of eyelet rain drops. Don't they look like tiny brads? The pack also contains these dots in different shades and sizes.
Do any of you own the score map that fits right into the score pal? When they first came out, I thought why buy that when I have a couple other mats already. Well I have heard a few good things about the score mat and finally broke down and bought one. If you were hesitant on buying one like I was, don't hesitant any longer. They are awesome! They sit on top of the score pal and you use it like you would any other mat or table top plus more! It is self healing so you can cut on it with your exacto knife, there grid lines are on it to help you line papers up. If you are anything like me I tend to be quite focused when crafting and will often reach for my exacto knife and cutting before I realize I am cutting into the table and not a mat. This is no longer an issue...my poor table looks like a desk from high school with all the carving in it. Another great thing about the mat is you can flip it over and you have a whole different mat to use. I used this for coloring. If you water color with re-inker or use ink-pad, drop your ink right on the mat and pick up from there, sponge the edges of paper on it and I am sure many more uses that I have not even thought of. If you are worried about how it cleans up...everything just wipes right off!
If you have any favorites, I would love to hear what they are!
Have a fantastic weekend!
