Hello....boy we have kind of fallen of the grid with our blog. We post daily on Instagram - it's so quick and easy. I think I always have a new years resolution to be more dedicated to our blog but it looks like I've already not been able to keep up with that goal since it's the 21st of January already. We've been busy making samples, helping with events in Seattle, and working on our spring line! It's easy to fill the day with all of our "to do's". Here are a few cards that we've created. We have really been inspired with watercolor and gold! You can see it within most of our ideas.
The card below has a watercolor pattern background. I've been using the Koi Watercolor set. It seems like I have all of the others but I keep coming back to that set. I like the compact size, I like the tray that comes with it - I use this to create new colors and then when they dry on the tray, the color is there for next time. I tend to have some staple go to colors that I use often. The heart die is a new one and I used gold mirror paper. It has a great finish and is nice and thick. The mirror paper comes in gold and silver.
You know how much we love some type of background image. We've created dozen of pattern stamps to fill this roll but lately it has been fun to do a splash of watercolor to be used as a background. For the love word die, I used a new product. We love the foil look and they have came out with so many options to create that look. The Minc works well with any image printed with a laser printer because the foil will adhere to the toner. That's easy to do but now they have came out with toner sheets of paper that you can die cut and then run it through your Minc! Below, the love word die was done this way. A little bit of the foil didn't stick so you can see the black toner paper showing on this card.
The card below is again using a watercolor wash to create a background, this time we did stripes. Then, we die cut a simple heart die using the gold mirror paper again. I love the black, hot pink and gold combo.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
