International Blog Highlights Winners Hop -

I’m so excited to be featured in this month’s International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing in the top ten of the December 2020 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my card! The theme for the International Blog Highlights is "Thank You"! Here's my Peony Garden Diamond Easel card that I shared in the International Highlights Blog Hop.  


Today I'm sharing a card featuring the Fine Art Floral Product Suite from the January to June Mini Catalogue that launches on January 5th.  I love this product suite and especially the Gilded Leafing Embellishment that is part of the suite!  So much fun to play with!



Instructions

  1. Cut Poppy Parade cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Petal Pink cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and emboss using the Painted Texture Embossing Folder.
  3. Apply Versamark to the edge of Petal Pink cardstock.  Use the ink pad to apply the Versamark - don't worry about how much Versamark or if you are applying the same amount around the edge.
  4. Apply Heat and Stick Powder and heat using the Heat Tool.
  5. Apply Gilded Leafing Embellishment and rub off using a sponge.  Check out some tips for using the Gilded Leafing in my Youtube Video.
  6. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Stamp flower using Petal Pink ink for background stamp and Poppy Parade ink for highlights.  Cut out using Die.
  8. Stamp stem and leaves using Old Olive. Cut out using Die
  9. Stamp sentiment using Poppy Parade ink.  Cut out using Die.
  10. Adhere pieces to card base using Dimensionals - regular size for the flower and Mini Dimensionals for the leaves and label.
