I have trying some new products for today, but am mixing them with carry overs. The main new product is the Magnolia Lane Cards and Envelopes. They are in a great Craft or Crumb Cake card stock with some silver embossing. I love that look of elegant mixed with a more grounded color.
I paired the Botanical Bliss stamp set and dies for a different look to this base. I stamped inside the framed area with Crumb Cake Ink, using the flower from First Frost, to add a bit of background. I die cut the tag and then watercolored it.
I used Shimmery White Card Stock as I think it is perfect for watercoloring. I was a bit different on my watercolor. I scribbled with markers on a clear block and then used the Aqua Painter to pick up the ink. It gives a softer look I believe. However, since you cannot purchase individual markers, it would work perfectly fine to get ink in the lid of your ink pad and pick it up that way.
The Crumb Cake tag is the new Timeless Label Punch. I shortened it to fit on the tag without hanging over the sides. The Metallic Pearls were an add on that I believe worked well. The red ribbon is a retired one that I found a piece in the bottom of my ribbon drawer as I was pulling out retired ones. Couldn’t let that go!!
I also used markers and stamped the flower image onto the front of the matching envelope. I try to remember to add that little touch.
Thank you for stopping in today. I hope you will reconsider, or look at for the first time, these cards and envelopes. It is a great deal.
