The Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies are so beautiful and intricate.
For my first play, I decided to watercolour the large floral die cut. My watercolouring is a bit rusty, but the result was still pretty on the watercolour paper. This paper is pricier than some, but has a gorgeous thick textured finished which is so elegant, especially for special occasions.
I adhered my floral die cut onto more watercolour card and added the copper foiled butterfly with mini dimensionals. I just love the richness of the copper foil, and am a little copper obsessed lately as you’ll see from my upcoming projects!
I brushed over the floral die cut with wink of stella once it was dry. What do you think of the colour combo? I quite like the mix of the fresh soft sea foam and coastal cabana with the rich gorgeous grape and fresh fig xx
Totally Trees is another fantastic stamp set available from the brand new Autumn/Winter catalogue, out on 1st September, and I love this contemporary take on the Christmas tree.
I adore the simplicity of this card, and it’s difficult to convey in picture, the beautiful effect of the copper heat embossed insides of the trees.
I embossed the card front by running it through my Big Shot with the Softly Falling embossing folder. Next, I stamped the green tree tops in garden green ink, and then copper embossed the framework of the tree over the top of this. Finally, I brushed clear wink of Stella over the tree tops before fussy cutting them out.
I wrapped a piece or burlap ribbon over the lower part of my card panel before I adhered the central tree flat, and raised the trees on either side by adhering them with dimensionals.
To finish, I copper embossed the sentiment from Oh What Fun stamp set on some whisper white cardstock, and cut a banner using the Triple Banner Punch, before sponging the edge in garden green ink, adhering with dimensionals, and placing three basic rhinestones for a little sparkle 🎄🎄🎄
