All of the brand new items will be available for purchase on the 15th at 10pm EST. Just a few more days now! For my cards today, I'm taking a break from Valentine's projects. I have two cards to share made with the Quoted line of stamps and the Year of Psalms line of stamps. OH! And there are new Edgers Dies too! (YAY!)
My two cards today used the following new products: Stencil Basics - Hexagons, Quoted Honeycomb, Year of Psalms December and Round Off Edgers Dies. This first card is full of pretty yellow - which is one of my favorite colors to craft with. And I adore this new Quoted stamp set. Like I REALLY love it!! I started with an A2 card base made from kraft cardstock. Then I layered Bright Buttercup paper. My white layer was stenciled with the new stencils and two shades of yellow inks....
For the stenciling, I didn't fully ink each space. I wanted sort of an ombre effect. The honeycombs around the edges are darker and they get lighter as you go into the center of the card. The stamp set has a tiny honeycomb single stamp that was perfect for adding a few to the sentiment circle. I stamped the sentiment in rich black ink and added the bee. Two layers of circles make it pop off the page!
This little bee is trying to escape! Here's a better close up of the stencil inking...
I wanted a soft element on this card, so I got out my fav Branching Out die and cut it from vellum. I tucked the pieces under the main focal circle before attaching everything. I used a small strip of kraft ribbon and then some clear drops as accents.
This next card is very clean and classic! Rich dark navy papers accented with gold....so yummy! I heat embossed the new Year Of Psalms stamp in gold embossing powder. I added extra stars around the embossing by using Versamark Ink and the small accent stamps that come in the set. I used the new Round Off Edgers Dies to create a beautiful border to feature the new patterned paper.
Here's a close up of that gorgeous new border die! You're going to want this die set in your stash - so versatile!
