New Inspiration for Blessings Box Subscription

Hi, everyone!  Today I am sharing two more samples which feature items from the April Blessings Box from Divinity Designs LLC.  Check out the details of this quarterly subscription HERE.

My first sample began by coloring two white panels with blending brushes.  One was die cut with the Raindrops Background then popped up with Foam Mounting Tape over the 2nd colored panel.  The image from Rain or Shine was stamped on white; the flowers were colores with markers and the boots were colored with a blending brush using a reverse mask cut from scratch paper. White gel pen was added to the boots.


My second sample features one of the sentiments from Rain or Shine and the following dies: Park Silhouettes, Grass Lawn, Cloud Borders, Cowboy & Cactus Silhouettes (sun).  The background panel was colored the same way as my first card, with Blending Brushes.  Before die-cutting the bench, the black cardstock was layered with an adhesive sheet since this is a tough one to glue.


Thanks for stopping by!

Divinity Designs LLC June New Release!

Hi, everyone! It's time for another new release from Divinity Designs LLC! To see the entire new release plus more amazing samples, visit the website HERE or Instagram HERE.
My first sample features the Mini Slimline Double Display Die set; I have to be honest....I was not looking forward to using this die set since it looked complicated, however, it was super easy!  The card base was cut from white cardstock and the layers were cut from a pattern from the Floral Favorites Slimline Paper Pad.  I didn't take a "closed" photo, but the Mr. and Mrs. with Layers Dies covers the front of the card when it's closed.  Inside is a pocket cut from Rose Gold Foil cardstock with the Gift Card Pockets and Layers Dies; the layer was cut from white, shaded with pink ink and a Blending Brush, then stamped with the stamp set.  The tiny hearts are from the Clouds and Raindrops Dies set. A matching envelope was also created, using the Mini Slimline Envelope Die.  The same papers and dies were used to decorate the envelope, inside and out.
My next sample features a gorgeous pattern from the Majestic Mountains Slimline Card Fronts, the Floral Corners Background Die, plus a sentiment from the Sending Sunshine Stamp/Duo set. Since the background die is so intricate, I knew that adding it with glue would be a challenge, so an Adhesive Sheet was placed onto the eggplant cardstock before die-cutting. A Blending Brush was used to add yellow ink to the sentiment panel while it was still inside the die so that the white border would remain.  Sparkly purple gems were added for a finishing touch. Other dies used: Matting Rectangle and A2 Landscape Card Base with Layer.
I saved my fave for last. This is a card I created for my hubby for our Anniversary! The Majestic Mountains paper pad was absolutely perfect for the Eclipse Technique!  I used the Long and Lean Letters Dies to cut the letters from the scene, then cut three more layers each from the green cardstock in order to give the dimension.  The sentiment is from the Koala Bears Stamp/Die Duos set.  Other dies used: Sentiment Strips 2, Slimline Thin Pierced Frame, and Slimline Card Base.

Hello Sunshine!

Hi, everyone! This week's Color Challenge over at Splitcoast is to use Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Bermuda Bay with the dessert option of using two extra colors. For my card, I created a panel using the 'Wrinkle Free Distress' Technique with four different shades of aqua.  I used some fun dies from My Favorite Things to cut away from the blue panel and show the coral panel beneath.  A glitter pen was used to highlight the sun and letters plus some gems were added.  The panels were cut out with the Pierced Rectangles Dies and Matting Rectangle Die from Divinity Designs LLC.

Divinity Designs LLC - Blessings Box Samples Part Two!

Hi, everyone!  Today I would like to share a few more samples created with the latest quarterly Blessings Box from Divinity Designs LLC.  Check out the details of the subscription package HERE.  

For my first sample, I used Blending Brushes with the 'Water Spray' Mixed Media Stencil with different shades of blue in on Kraft cardstock. Once finished, I used Glimmer Mist spray....unfortunately the camera didn't pick up the sparkle. Foil cardstock and gemstones were used for a little more glam!
As you can see, I love foil cardstock...here is a different shade of blue. The glittery layer is white cardstock, covered with a clear glitter adhesive film. Parts of the blue foil were covered with this before die-cutting the umbrella. Some of the raindrops from the background were popped up with Foam Mounting Tape.
For my last card, I used the Paper-Piecing technique....the boots were stamped onto the designer paper, cut out and adhered over the stamped image.
Thanks for visiting!

Desire of Your Heart

Happy Friday, everyone!  This week's Friday Free4All Challenge over at Splitcoast is to share our graduation cards.  This clean and simple design was created for a co-worker's daughter.  It only took about 15 minutes to complete.....sweet!!  The stamp set I used, 'As You Graduate', is unfortunately retired from Divinity Designs LLC, but it's still a fave of mine because I love to created a blended sky for the background.  I used the MISTI to stamp the scripture verse onto the card base and it took several layers of ink to get a solid black image for the scene.....LOVE my MISTI!!!  For the scene, I used blending brushes and sponge daubers with lavender, orchid, pink, and yellow ink pads.
