Happy Thursday, everyone! I don't have any challenge cards today but I do have a couple projects I made using SU's Blends...I am getting more comfortable with them and hope my customers will try them as well!
My first project is a little pizza box that I covered with Delightful Daisy DSP, on which I attached the butterfly from Beautiful Day, stamped in Craft White ink on Vellum cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder. On the underside of the butterfly, I colored the wings with the Calypso Coral light and dark Blends, and dried it quickly with my heat tool:
I attached the "amazing" diecut, cut from Powder Pink cardstock and sponged with Calypso Coral ink (a tip I got from Mary Fish), with glue dots. I love that effect. And did you know that you can color pearls with the Blends?! Check out the "head" of the butterfly:
In the same color theme, I stamped the flower from the same set in Calypso Coral and the leaves in Old Olive on thick white cardstock, then colored them with matching Blends. I did use the Light Pink Pirouette on the petals as well. After fussy-cutting them out, I mounted them on a piece of Bundle of Love Specialty DSP, popping the flower up on dimensionals. SOMEHOW I got green ink on the center of the flower, so I stamped another center, colored and cut it out and popped it up too! I found a little piece of Gold Foil cardstock that was left over from cutting a scalloped edge, so I used it as an embellishment, and again, added some pearls I colored with the Blends:
Another "amazing" diecut finished it off along with the "you" from Amazing You:
I'll have a couple more samples coming up soon! Thanks for popping in!
The look you get when someone doesn't want her picture taken while she's practicing:
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
