WILD ABOUT FLOWERS AND MELON MAMBO

I have another Breakfast Club card to show you.  I paired Melon Mambo with my "go to" green, Pear Pizzazz.  It seems as though Pear Pizzazz works well with any color.


I also used Pear Pizzazz when lining the envelope.  I love lining the envelope to give my cards the finishing touch.  I am sad that the Envelope Liner Framelits will be retiring at the end of May.  To see what is retiring, CLICK HERE.

Here is a closer look as well as a peak of the inside of the card.




JULIE'S TIPS:
  • I used Watercolor Paper for an additional texture.
  • Add the leaf from the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.
  • I stamped the images twice without re-inking for a shadow effect.
  • Tie the envelope and the inside of the card together by adding matching DSP.

Best Thoughts with Hostess Benefits

There are less than two months to get this stamp set before it is gone for good.  It is one of my favorites.  The best thing about this stamp set is that it is free with a $150 order!!  It is a perfect image to watercolor.  I have watercolored this image in many different colors and each time, it is just beautiful.



STAMPIN' GALA TIPS:
  • Stamp the image off center to add interest.
  • Use Watercolor paper it is the best for the watercoloring technique.
  • Watercolor flower with Aqua Painters and Pink Pirouette ink fairly lightly, then go back and add additional color for shading.
  • Stamp the image with VersaMark ink and heat set with Silver Embossing Powder.

INTERNATIONAL BLOG HIGHLIGHT

Welcome to another International Blog Highlight Blog Hop.  This time, the theme is love......any kind of love, baby, animals, wedding, etc.  Demonstrators around the world are submitted their projects with this theme in mind.  You can vote for your favorite here.  I and #30 and would love to have your vote!!

I chose to create a project that reflects wedding love.  I felt this is perfect for "Wedding Shower Love".    This trio of projects is perfect for wedding favors.  The stackable boxes hold tea light candles with little glass holders and the box with the butterfly is a double matchbox.  The basket is great for giving small gifts.  I would love to hear what you think.


Here is a matching card for the bride-to-be.  


I used the Picture Perfect stamp set and the background is created with the Timeless Textures stamp set.  If you haven't purchased this set yet, you can purchase it here.

Here are some pictures of my projects with a closer view.

JUST A NOTE WITH PICTURE PERFECT

Sometimes you need to send "Just a Note" and I think this card fits the bill.  I love the soft colors and the simplicity of this card.




Here is a look from a different angle.



Don't forget the inside as well as the envelope.  All the little details make a big difference.
