Hi, everyone! Wow, a new month is here already! You know what that means....it's New Release time for Divinity Designs LLC! It's a super fun release again this month.....check out the entire new release HERE, plus gorgeous samples from my designer sisters, and info on how to win some goodies!
Here are the products featured in my projects for today:
First up is a card which features the 'Birthday' Stamp/Die Duos set and the DD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies. I began by adding drops and lines of various alcohol inks and rose gold mixtative onto a piece of Yupo paper. The colors were blended slightly with a paintbrush dipped in rubbing alcohol. Once everything was nice and dry, the Birthday die was cut from the Yupo paper so that I could do the eclipse technique. (Tip: if you do the eclipse technique, be careful not to lose any of the tiny pieces inside of the letter loops since these pieces will be glued back into the bottom layer of cardstock.) The die was used three additional times with turquoise cardstock; all of the die-cuts were layered with the alcohol ink layer on top. The small sentiment stamps from the set were heat embossed with pewter embossing powder to coordinate with the metallics in the alcohol ink panel. Two brass brads were added to coordinate with the copper mats.
Next up is a gift set created with the Test Tube Treats Dies, Test Tubes - Small, Test Tube Treat Stamps, Treat Tag Sentiments 3, Flower Burst Mixed Media Stencil, Scalloped Circles Dies, Circles Dies, Scalloped Squares Dies, Squares Dies, and the Spring Flower Paper Collection 2019. The treat holder was super fast and easy to make....cutting, embossing, and assembling the cardstock base and designer paper layers took about ten minutes! It was easy peasy! The adorable little daffodil image from the treat stamps set was stamped twice, cut out with a small circle die, then matted with a scalloped circle. Sentiments for both the card and treat holder are from the Treat Tag Sentiments 3 set, cut out with the Test Tube Treats Dies set. The tags can also be purchased separately in the Treat Tags Dies, but I love that the Test Tube Treats Dies already includes them! For the card, the base was cut out with the new Scalloped Squares Dies, matted with a panel cut with the Squares Dies. Yellow and peach was sponged over the Flower Burst Mixed Media Stencil, while the panel was still inside the die; tiny green pearls were added to the image panels and to the centers of the sponged flower bursts.
This cute set was created with the same "ingredients" as the daffodil set, minus the designer paper. I began by stamping half of a page of peeps on white cardstock using a ruler for spacing (every 5/8" the peep was centered). I then used the Wrinkle Free Distress Technique: yellow, pink, and lavender ink pads (plain ole dye ink) was swiped onto a craft mat, spritzed with water, then the peeps cardstock mopped up the ink. When the cardstock was dry, the treat holder layers were cut out. For the decorative piece on the front of the treat holder, I used the purple cut-out which was leftover from cutting the treat holder base, stenciled one of the flower bursts in lavender, fussy cut one of the yellow peeps from the WFD panel, then layered it onto a Scalloped Circle die cut. Since I had quite a few colored peeps left on the sheet, I fussy cut five of them, with different color variations and popped them up over a panel which was cut out with the Double Stitched Squares Dies, then dry embossed with the Flower Burst Mixed Media Stencil. Yep, you can dry emboss with the stencils.....yay!! The peeps are sitting on a strip cut with the Bitty Borders Dies. The lavender mat was stenciled (Flower Burst) with Versamark, then clear embossed and cut out with the Scalloped Squares Dies.
Below is the 'More is More' version of the peeps card, using the popped up Wrinkle Free Distress peeps and a 'Less is More' version on which the peeps were stamped directly onto the lightly stenciled panel then sponged (using reverse masking). The second version was super quick since there were less steps involved. Feel free to click on each photo for a larger view.
