Nothing Better than, continued...

Doing some research on Pinterest I found a card I loved and decided I could make and make it my own.  The Nothing Better Than set with the coordinating dies Love you More make creating so easy.  I loved making each one of these original with different color back grounds made it eye catching.  Again I used Crystal effects on the cocktails to make sure they made you thirsty.

Hand-Drawn Blooms

I love Playing with Dies cuts, especially ones that coordinate with the sample images.  This one is is no exception.  The flowers are so beautiful and with the one large dies your card front is already laid out for you. Below is the Stamp Set and dies that coordinate.

After die cutting the bunch out on whisper white I used daubers to add color to the flowers.

The you take it a step further  and the embellished with enamel dots the coordinated with the inks of the flowers. 

The next card is created by stamping the bouquet with Pear Pizazz and watercolored with the Aqua Pens and colored in the leaves and flowers with Flirty Flamingo and Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight Inks. 

The last card is taking the stamping to the next letter by stamping in Stazon Black.  Watercolors in the leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink and embellished with die cuts of the Banners and Blooms and added Crystal Effects to add a new sparkle and dimension. Dont forget to layer to pull the colors used out in the design.

Love you More Than

Life is getting busy with that summer time hustle and so I want to share with you a few cards I made a day or so ago. I pulled out the Nothings Better Than with Coordinating Dies of Love you More than and created 5 cards.  I also did a video I posted on Youtube and all are listed below. 

For this card I had a blast.  The Cookies look so good when they are stamped in crumb cake card stock and stamped with early Espresso.  On the two cookies cut out I used shimmery Crystal Effects to make the chocolate chips really stand out.  Sadly, this picture doesn't show you how cool that looks. But the ideas and potential are amazing.
If you didn't know, I am a Bartender by trade and miss my job so much right now and I really wanted to pull some colors together.  I call this card the Vodka Cranberry.  The idea for this came form the annual catalog this year.  I just made it my own.  Im getting thirsty.
I repeated the same pattern layout but decided to go with the Chocolates instead.  I love that the die set has one stamp that cut outs all 4 words of Love You More Than and all you have to do is decided what you love the most at that moment.  Every one could understand the love for Chocolate.
This card is one which truly shows me.  First, The plan is Consume.  What better than cocktails.  Being a bartender, I visualized Sex on the beach, a Blue MF (which is just a long Island with blue Curaco instead of sour and coke) and Of course my fave a Long Island Ice Tea.  All supplies used. Linked
I took that same technique of stamping flavors and by simply adding Shimmery Crystal Effects the glass of Pink Lemonade, Hurricane and another Long Island   got full and wet looking.  I am so longing for a cocktail by the pool.

I put a video together showing how easy it is the create two of these cards.  Check it out.

As always my friends Keep Stampin On...
