Hello fellow crafters!
I am back on Maria’s blog with fun stuff from her brand-new release!! There are so many great sets!!!
I started with the fancy set called „Funky pineapples“. Gosh, how many ideas are floating my mind when I look at these stamps!! Foiling, embossing, watercoloring…. It feels like an invitation for playing, lol ! So here weg go!
Both cards are actually pretty simple. For the first one I stamped my card panel randomly with the different pineapples with versamark ink, sprinkled some white embossing powder over it and melted it with my heat gun. As you may know, once melted, embossing powder is color resistant against many media , like watercolors or colored pencils. So I grabbed my regular watercolors (which I have since my primary school days by the way, lol) and put some colors on in all shades of green and yelllow. A pretty amazing word die (I diecut it 4 times and stacked it on each other) on a torn strip of vellum and some sparkling sequins finished off my design.
For my second card I wanted to create something with rainbow colors, so I came up with this design by masking off every pineapple a tiny bit that I could color them in rainbow order. For the frame around my design I used some green metallic foiling to create more interest to the card.
This is another great and versatile set called „You are Awesome“ – and that’s what it is – awesome! There is a simple wreath and tiny little leaves and dots and things to create a nice greenery on it. Or you can leave it blank as I did on one card and just color in every tiny bit on that wreath. Put an eyecatching word or sentiment over it and you are good to go! And still sooo many possibilities to discover!
Look at these monkeys!! Aren’t they the cutest?? „Monkey Madness“ is just adorable. For my card I turned these monkeys into a family. Mom, dad and the little boy are peeking through the windows of the wildlife station out in the bushes ☺ everything is colored with my copics, even the diecut leaves. The background is sponged with different pigment inks.
I really had a lot of fun creating and playing with all those new sets – I bet you will like them too!
Have an amazing day!
Hugs – Tina
