Today's Lovely In Lace collection is beautiful, and so perfect for any papercrafting project.   Let me show you what I have created:




I am using the new MARIPOSA 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER, a bit of gold ink for my first card.

The new STARBURST GEOMETRIC 3D Embossing Folder and a bit of ink worked just perfectly for this Family Journal entry.









For my last project, I am using the new CHERRY PLUM BLOSSOM 3D Embossing folder  to create this two tone card.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Magnolia Rustica Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes)

 


Hi there!

Welcome to ALTENEW PAINT-A-FLOWER: MAGNOLIA RUSTICA OUTLINE STAMP RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Ann Taylor's blog. A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.




Today's new ALTENEW PAINT-A-FLOWER: MAGNOLIA RUSTICA Outline Stamp set is beautiful.  The design of the flowers is perfect for all types of coloring mediums and all sorts of paper crafting projects.  Here is what I have created for today's hop:




I heat embossed - Antique Gold powder- the image of the new PAF: MAGNOLIA RUSTICA onto heavy cardstock.  First, I used a metallic green marker to color in the leaves of the flowers.




Using the Mini Ink Blending Tools, I colored each of the petals with ink. Once I had colored the entire image,  I used a microfiber cloth to buff the embossed image, then fussy cut the image.




I created my card panel from white and gold cardstock. I placed the fussy cut image on the seam of the two cardstock, and added a sentiment, and a few pearls. Just love how this card with the new PAINT-A- FLOWER: MAGNOLIA RUSTICA turned out!

Farm Girl For A Day - Doodlebug Design

 I think every kid dreams (some still do) about working in a farm, and having free access to all the farm animals.  My daughter still loves farms!  So, the Down On The Farm collection is perfect to document some of her past memories of days at one of the local farms.





My starting point for this page was the 10x10" piece of Farmer's Flannel paper.  I just love the subtle pattern on the b side





I folded the top left corner of the paper, and backed it with one of the 6x6 paper pad designs. I used this corner to add a sky scene.  These were all attached to a Lemon Petite Print paper background.






The folded corner helped me to anchor my pictures to the layout.   I simply added a few pieces of Chit Chat as embellishments.





I pulled pieces from the Odds & Ends pack, Chit Chat, and stickers to create my title.  To complete my title, I am using stickers from My Type alpha and Abigail alpha.  I love the font combination with the cute ephemera pieces.




To complete my page, I created a small farm scene at the bottom right corner of the page...All the embellishments in Down On The Farm are so cute, it was easy to mix and match them all!



A few sprinkles complete the page. I hope this gives you a bit of inspiration, and you  also bring out some of your farm memories to document with the Down On The Farm collection.

XOXO
