Happy Thursday Everyone!
I have an awesome video to share with all of you today. This shows off parts of this week’s Focal Suite “Country Lane”
I would also like to share with your two projects I made recently. One was made for an organized swap I participated in, and the second “stepped up” version was made to share during this week’s posts. I thought showing the two together might help some who want to use more of their coordinated embellishments as well as adding more interest.
With this first sample I have simply colored the focal floral with Stampin’ Blends and then Stamped the milk jug in Basic Black onto Basic Grey card stock. Then I fussy cut the jar out. One designer tip when doing it this way. Use your basic black marker and go around the cut edges with it. It makes the image feel more finished. The paper strip I used across the middle of the card is from the Country Lane 12×12″ Designer Series Paper.
With this “Stepped Up” sample I have used the Galvanized 12″ metal paper in the Tin Tile Dynamic Designer Impressions Embossing Folder for the background piece instead of the Smoky Slate. I then Stamped the Milk Jug image on to our 110lb Thick Whisper White card stock and I colored it using the Smoky Slate and Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker Combos. Lastly I added a bit of twine around the tip of the jug just for some added interest.
Here is an extra tip when using this Tin Tile Dynamic Designer Impressions embossing folder. Once embossed go over the raised parts of the embossing with your Wink of Stella. It adds that little extra bling that so many people enjoy.
