Hi, everyone! Welcome to the January new release party for Divinity Designs LLC (formerly known as Our Daily Bread designs). If you haven't heard about the name change yet, please visit this post. I am super excited about this month's release, especially about the new embossing folder and mixed media stencils....yay!! See the entire new release HERE, along with info on how you could win some goodies!
Here are the products featured in my projects for today:
My first card is a fancy fold which includes a matching belly band. There are several views below showing the different sections. The purple card base was cut out with the Half-Shutter Card with Layers Dies, layered with shimmery white paper which was embossed with the new 'Flourishes' Embossing Folder. The first photo shows the Belly Band Die Set which is embellished with a flower and leaves from the Festive Favors Dies (these can also be found in the Bitty Blossoms Dies set). All of the ovals in this project were cut out with the Layered Lacey Ovals and Ovals Dies. All of the stamps shown on this fancy fold card are from the 'Peach Branch' stamp set.
This view is the front of the card without the belly band.
The peach branch image was stamped in Stazon Jet Black, then water-colored then sponged around the edge.
This view shows the entire card plus the belly band in front. The dies used on the 3rd section are Lavish Layers and Pierced Rectangles. I chose this cut out frame design for the last section so that the beautiful embossed layer would be visible underneath.
My next project is an open sided gift bag, cut out with the Festive Favors Dies. The gift pouch, tag, circle opening and flower spray were all cut with this die set. The designer paper used for the flap is from the Christmas Collection 2015 and the sentiment is from the Festive Favors Tag Sentiments set. (The goodies inside are 'soft-stick' peppermint from Cracker Barrel....yummy!)
The next four cards are a set, created with the new stencils and each of the four new stamp sets this month. The first card features the 'Lemon Branch' set, along with the 'Circles' Mixed Media Stencil. For this background, I used sponge daubers and ink to sponge through the stencil, then cut out the panel with the Pierced Rectangles Dies. The images on each of the four cards colored with markers, sponging, and water-coloring and were cut out with the Pierced Ovals Dies, matted with the Ovals Dies. Sequins were added to each for simple embellishments.
My next card features the 'Peach Branch' set, along with the 'Petals' Mixed Media Stencil. For this background, two different ink pads were swiped directly onto the stencil; the stencil was spritzed with water and pressed onto white cardstock.
Next is a card which features the 'Fruit of the Spirit' set and 'Circles' Mixed Media Stencil. This stencil was used with basic gradient sponging through the stencil openings.
My last card features the 'Apple Branch' set, along with the 'Petals' Mixed Media Stencil. This background was also created with 'Stencil Stamping' as in the peach card above.
Thanks for hanging out with us today!
