Peaceful Poppies

This weekend I spent some time creating with the Peaceful Poppies Elements.
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-ImageYou can add artistic touches with these die-cut printed accents, perfect for watercoloring with your choice of coloring tools. There are 8 sheets in total: 2 sheets printed black elements; 2 sheets printed thick cardstock; 2 sheets printed vellum; and 2 sheets watercolor paper.

I challenged myself to use each of the accents at least once.

These first 3 cards used the die-cut printed accents so they were already colored.
The first idea came from Erica Cerwin…
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-1JPGThen I came up with this birthday card. It’s probably my favorite…
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-2JPGAnd a sympathy card…
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-3JPGThe vellum pieces stumped me a bit at first, but then I simply used my blends markers to color the back side and then I placed them on black cardstock so the colors showed up a bit better…
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-4JPGI love how it turned out. The label pieces are from the Painted Labels Dies and the brick background is made with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.

Then there are 2 sheets of watercolor paper with the poppy images clear embossed. These are so cool because you can sponge color…brayer color…blend with our Blends Markers…or color with an Aqua Painter on these elements. For this card, I used my Aqua Painter and the following colors: Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Grapefruit Grove, Terracotta Tile, Old Olive, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce.

Finally, I made this small thank you note card…
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-6JPG I used Terracotta Tile and Blackberry Bliss to create an ombre effect. :)
That’s all for today.

Girls Gathering
Many of you know that I am currently in Melbourne, Australia visiting our daughter. I didn’t bring much “work” along, but I did bring a few kits. So yesterday we had a little gathering for some close friends and family. 
Girls Day-1Being able to host a stamp gathering together, and actually just being in her home, is seriously the best!
Girls Day-2It was super special to share the afternoon with this circle of women who love and support Samantha here in Australia.
Girls Day-3I would highly recommend hosting a craft afternoon or evening with a few of your friends. Many of these ladies were new crafters, but the ease of the kits allowed them to feel proud of their creations.

From My Heart

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved hearts. So you can imagine that this From the Heart Suite in the new mini catalogue makes me SO happy.
From-the-heart-suiteI used these products for the first time a couple of weeks ago when we had our team meeting. I wanted to bake something in those adorable heart foil tins. You can bake right in them, but then I found silicone heart muffin/cupcake molds at our local Superstore and decided to use them instead. Guess what? They fit perfectly. I was able to decorate them and fit them nicely inside the tins.
Heart-Foil-TinsAfter you decide what goes inside the Heart Foil Tins, you get to decorate the clear dome lids. The coordinating products in the From My Heart Bundle make that super easy and fun to do.
Heart-Foil-Tins-1Aren’t they adorable?
Start thinking about Valentines Day…who can you surprise with these sweet heart foil tins? A co-worker… a friend… your grandchildren…book  club members?
