Each month the design team kicks off the newest release with a fun blog hop. The new stamps that you see on this hop will be released on Wednesday night after the New Release Cocktail Party on Splitcoaststampers from 8-10 p.m. EASTERN.
This month I wanted to use the newest flopsey- Birthday Flopsey - for one of my hop cards. I just adore him!!!
Materials used: Stamps-Birthday Flopsey (My Favorite Things); Memento tuxedo black ink; Copic Markers; Perfect Paper panels (My Favorite Things); white cardstock - Gina K Pure Luxury; designer paper White Out (We R Memory Keepers); tag punch (SU!); star punch; corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); button (The Paper Studio); ric rac; hemp (SU!); foam mounting tape.
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink on a Perfect Paper Panel and colored him with Copic markers. I pieced the cake and added some white gel pen icing. Instead of using the little candles that come with the set, I just punched out a star to stick on the top of the cake. I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with a tag punch.
For my next card, I decided to use the new WTG set--Girls Day In--in a different way. This set has two larger images (a girl getting a pedicure and a girl getting a manicure) and lots of other fun coordinating images and sentiments. But, every time I looked at the image of the girl getting a manicure, I kept envisioning an engagement ring on her hand.
So, for this card, I gave into my vision.....a fun wedding or engagement card:The girl and the sentiment are from the new set. I used part of the "Celebrate Yourself" sentiment. I drew an engagement ring on the image before cutting it out and paper piecing the dress. The girls robe is transformed into a wedding dress by simply wiping off a bit of the robe ink before I stamped. The beautiful paper is called Silver Lustre from PaperTemptress (see link on side bar.) I also used some fun tulle. I paired this set with Boho Blossoms and embossed the heart from this set for the background.
Materials used: Stamps- Girls Day In, Boho Blossoms (My Favorite Things); Memento tuxedo black ink; cardstock-white, black Pure luxury (Gina K Designs); Silver Lustre (PaperTemptress); rhinestones (the Paper Studio); tulle; corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); foam mounting tape; red embossing powder (Ranger); white embossing powder (SU!); Versamark; heat tool.
