Earthen Textures Bundle #161514

Earthen Textures Bundle #161514

This card is a great layout to help you understand "placement." The closest object is placed at the lowest point on the card front. Therefore, the image that is the highest in the layout, will appear farther back. Always layout your die cuts before attaching so you get the correct distance perspective!

 

 

#161514 Earthen Textures Bundle

These fun products are Earthen Textures Bundle #161514. Each pot is a different color of blue or green. Colors are Balmy Blue, Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce.

Build out perpendicularly, leaving a small space between strips so the gold shows. Let strips extend beyond the edge. When done, flip over and trim off excess. It's fun. You might as well make several cards while you are at it!! TRY IT!!

Hydrangea Hill Suite and Envelope VIDEO

20210222_094340
GARDENING TIP: you can change the color of your garden Hydrangeas from pink to BLUE by adding SOIL ACIDIFER, found in your garden center near the fertilizers! It's MAGIC!!

The Hydrangea Hill Suite #155985 is ELEGANT and let's you create any color blossoms you desire on card stock! These are "Z" fold cards cut 4-1/4 X 11" then scrored at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2". VERY EASY! I used the interesting Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate sheets #154574. The left one is Highland Heather color. The right one is flipped over to the silver side of the Mercury Glass Acetate.

 

20210222_094431

I inked the flower image in Highland Heather and then "rolled" the edge of the image in Seaside Spray ink for a lovely realistic color combo. That is called the "ROCK & ROLL" technique.

 

20210222_094209

I rarely make just one card at a time, so this one is varied from the other.

 

20210222_094455

Cards this exquisite demand fancy envelopes! The top envelope has the flap covered in the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper #154570. The lower card I created from the same Designer Papers using the border print and here is how:

How to Select Colors for Uninked Spectrum Pad

20180723_103900

What is BETTER than a Spectrum Ink Pad??? An UNINKED Spectrum Pad!! Build you own color combos for any season or occasion! How???

20180707_084620

To select FIVE colors for your uninked pad, cut strips of cardstock colors and play till you find a combo you love and that fills your needs. I chose: Coastal Cabana, Lemon Lime Twist, Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo. Then grab your reinkers in those colors and create your color combo. BE SURE TO RECORD YOUR COLORS FOR LATER RE-INKING!! I wrote right on the back of the pad. 

20180820_151841

The cover of the pad has an indented slot where I added cardstock using Tear & Tape to label the colors, also. Colors at a glance!

20180707_084656

For this card, I left the Spectrum Pad separated and place white cardstock on top of the pad. I rubbed the back of the cardstock till I started to detect the colors soaking into the cardstock from the backside. I stamped the sentiment and details from A BIG THANK YOU Stamp Set #147377 in Jet Black Momento Ink.

20180723_103906

Lastly, I topped the layer with vellum. I love this card! Try it!!
