Stitched Lace Die & a Butterfly

Sorry about my absence on here…I had a visit from an awesome person that I don’t get to see very often. His arrival even trumped me opening an Annual Catalog pre-order box!  Today’s card is so simple, but looks stunning with the new Stitched Lace Dies that I know you will want – and you can get your hands on them when the catalog goes live on June 4th. Or, for even more fun, mark your calendar for my Annual Catalog Kick-Off Open House on Monday, June 17th and you can see it in real life. I’ll have more details for you coming up.

So back to this die set. It has one piece that is 5 7/8” x 4 5/16”, which will cover a complete card front. Then, there is an awesome second piece in which you can cut the scalloped shape shorter, either vertically or horizontally. When I made this card, the row I die cut out became a pretty doily style strip that I’ll use on another card. Oh my! And it even has a coordinating stamp set!

This card also uses a new 2019-2021 In Color called Rococo Rose. (Hunter said it sounded like a rapper’s name…hahahaha!) I love how soft and muted it is. So pretty in real life. (Please note the ink color and cardstock color are the same. Unfortunately, I am terrible at taking pictures. I definitely need Sydney’s camera skills.)  I also used the Butterfly Duet Punch and coordinating Butterfly Gala stamp set that were introduced in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. Perfect Simplicity!

Spotlight on Shimmery Black

I am fully in love this the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. It is so vibrant and makes me happy! I am also fully in love with the current trend that features accents of black and decided to focus on this gorgeous 3/8” Black Shimmer Ribbon. I wanted one more little pop of black, so I used a cotton swab dipped into Staz-on Jet Black permanent ink and dabbed the color onto our Rhinestone Basic Jewels. It dried quickly and makes the perfect accent. I am quite pleased with the aesthetics of this card!

Sweet Elegant Twist of Watercolor Wings

I am beside myself with happiness over the new Embossing Paste!  It is so easy to use and a little bit goes a long way! I used about 1 Tablespoon of paste mixed with 2 drops of Lemon Lime Twist Classic Ink Refill and was able to create 10 card fronts! I was struggling to figure out what colors I wanted to use, so I consulted a handy website called My Create Ink to randomly select my color combination using the Color Lab. It’s an awesome, free site that you can browse color combinations or select one, two, or three colors and let it generate additional colors. I selected Elegant Eggplant and let it come up with combinations for me to choose from. It’s super fun!  http://colorlab.mycreateink.com/
