Spring 2015 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop

Spring Hop Header
Hi everyone! I’m super excited to be welcoming you to my stop on the Spring 2015 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop! I’ll be showcasing some of the new stamp sets and dies in my post today! You should have arrived at my blog from the lovely folks at Ellen Hutson and The CLASSroom. (You’ll find the next stop will be at the end of my post.)
And, yay!!! I also get to give this new stamp set, called Mondo Magnolia, to a lucky someone!  Please leave a comment to enter my giveaway!

The fun begins in The CLASSroom and there is also a Grand Giveaway! To enter, be sure to leave a comment there, and at every stop along the hop by May 5th!  Winners will be announced May 8th.

I have a couple of fun things to share with you today. My tag uses the brand new Be-YOU-tiful die. This is such a fun and versatile die! I die cut it twice. Once with a deep, dark navy blue cardstock and once out of a Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® 3D Foam Creative Sheets. I burnished some gold foil on top of the die-cut adhesive sheet (once the liner was removed, of course) and then peeled the backing layer off of the back and slightly off-set it before pressing it down on top of the blue cardstock.
Close-up!! (The gold on the butterfly is created by using the Gold Texture Gems™ from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®. )

Onto my second card. Isn’t it pretty? And so simple. First I created my watercolor panel. I love doing this. It is so amazingly relaxing. Picking the colors I wanted to use is always the hardest part.  For this card I used the beautiful Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36-Piece Watercolor set. It is amaaaaaazing! *sigh*

Now, I MUST talk about this seriously gorgeous flower. The Mondo Magnolia is drop-dead, *thud* amazing! And there is a matching die...for ALL of the pieces!! ACK!! I stamped it onto cardstock weight vellum with Versamark and heat set it with a stunning fine, white embossing powder. Then I used the matching die to only cut the outline.  And those gold flecks? Again, I used gold foil. Yep! I applied a strong adhesive (Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesive Sheets used here) in random areas and then just pressed the gold foil on top. Super simple and it totally completes this look. I flicked some of the remaining watercolor on top of the flower and added some more of the Gold Texture Gems™ to the center.

Another close-up!

Your next stop on the hop is going to be the AMAZINGLY talented Sandy Allnock (I bow down to her creativeness). Tell her Lisa said “Hi” . :)
