My Inky Friends and I are ready for a big Annual Catalog kickoff, and want to share some projects with some of our new favorites from this Annual Catalog!
If you are following along in order, you just arrived from the lovely Shelly Zarling's blog where she featured Rooted in Nature!
I am using Tropical Chic. This stamp set caught my eye in the new catalog immediately! I knew that I would be able to use it in so many ways, and with so many other sets. I could not wait to get it home!
I stamped the images in Granny Apple Green and Gray Granite on Thick Whisper White, then used the Subtle embossing folder on the panel. Divine, I tell you!! Pinewood Plank has some competition now. 😄
Look at that delicious texture!! I am quite smitten, I tell you.
Here is a video I did showing the sponge-and-spritz technique.
Some leaves die cut from Granny Apple Green are tucked under the sentiment panel.
Then I stamped a bunch of Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove flowers, die cut them, then embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.
The words were die cut using the Celebrate You thinlits from Gold Foil and Granny Apple Green and adhered to a 2" wide strip of vellum with Fine Tip Glue Pen.
Then stitched down to the stamped panel with my sewing machine. Seriously, stitching is so simple, requires no special machine, and no special skills.
That is it for me! I hope you have seen some of the potential this set has to offer, and get yours soon!
Time to go see what Sara Mattson-Blume has created with Enjoy Life!
