Hi all. As we all going through this uncertain time and doing our part staying at home, we all looking for ways to bring joy to others. For us, card makers, one way to do that is by sharing creativity and inspiration for others to create. And, of course, to actually sending out the cards that we've been making.
Along with The Ton stamp company, I am joining over 100 cardmakers with #spreadjoynotgerms blog hop hosted by Catherine Pooler and Hedgehog Hollow. This is just a fun blog hop filled with fun projects. Of course, there are major giveaway going on as well (see below for details).
Get yourself a drink or two (there are lots of blogs!!) and join us for a line up of inspiration. I hope you enjoy this hop. So, let's get on with the card, shall we?
I am so obsessed with the latest release sets from The Ton. All the products I used on my cards today are from The Ton. I can't resist playing with the gorgeous Lily Fields.
I love using random color combination on my card. Often I start with no plan and just go with whatever I feel by the time I start coloring. I started by stamping and heat embosing the image on a piece of watercolor cardstock and then watercolor it using Tombow and Karin markers.
Added details to the flowers with white gel pen. Adhere the panel to card base & then for sentiment I die cut the letters for hugs using Modern Alphas Coverplate Dies from silver foil cardstock. Stamp the rest of sentiment on a strip of cardstock (from Layered Floral Alphas set)
I was going to do just 1 card, but then I started playing again & ended up with another card with different colors.
No rhyme or reason why I chose these colors for my lilies. I was just having fun watercoloring. My therapy. :)
On this card, for the sentiment I die cut the word you from Brushed You Dies. Layered it 4 times with the base layer made of silver foil cardstock. Otherwise the letter just disappear with all the colors. The sentiment Thinking of You from Brushed You set.
