Hi, everyone! Welcome to the February New Release party for Divinity Designs LLC (formerly known as Our Daily Bread designs)! To see the whole enchilada (all of the new stamps, stencils, designer paper and embossing folder!) and to find out how to win goodies, check out this post.
Here are the items featured in my three samples today:
For my first card, I have used the 'Miracle of Easter' stamp set, 'Flourishes' Mixed Media Stencil, Scalloped Ovals Dies, Ovals Dies, Lever Card Dies, Lever Card Layers Dies, Fence Die, Grass Lawn Die, and Bitty Butterflies Dies. The mixed media background on each panel was created with two techniques; the first is the 'Wrinkle Free Distress' Technique (swipe ink pads on a craft mat, spritz with water, mop up ink with cardstock); the 2nd is 'Stencil Stamping' (the 'Flourishes' stencil was inked with a plum inkpad, spritzed with water, then pressed onto the Wrinkle Free Distress panel). The lily was stamped right over the inked panel, then colored with markers (leaves) and water-colored (blooms). Two sentiments were stamped onto the oval panel which was sponged in light blue, then matted with the Scalloped Ovals Dies. The fence, grass, butterflies, and baby blue pearls were added as finishing touches.
My second card features the 'Cross' Embossing Folder/Die Duos set, along with the Inspiration Words Dies, Deco Border Die, and Pierced Rectangles Dies. I've always wanted to try the 'Faux Patina' Technique and this awesome embossing folder gave me the push to do it. The flat side of the embossing folder was inked with kraft ink, then embossed with white cardstock. The raised crosses were inked with a sponge dauber with medium aqua ink, then green ink, then dark brown ink. Instead of using gold embossing powder to create the metallic patina, I sponged 'Oldsilver' Inka-Gold on the raised images and buffed off the excess. I'm excited about the outcome and will definitely try this again! To finish the card, I used the Inka-Gold on the die cut crosses, border, and layered sentiment.
My third card was super quick and easy. It features the 'Miracle of Easter' set, gorgeous 'Spring Flowers 2019' Paper Collection, Scalloped Ovals Dies, Ovals Dies, Scalloped Rectangles Dies, Pierced Rectangles Dies, and Bitty Borders Dies. The lily was stamped in Stazon Jet Black onto the oval panel which was sponged in yellow, then both water-colored and colored with markers. The sentiment was stamped onto a panel which was cut with the Pierced Rectangles Dies, matted with the Scalloped Rectangles Dies. Please note that both of the small rectangles were cut using the Die Re-sizing Technique to customize the length to fit the sentiment perfectly.
Thanks for hanging out with us today!
