Welcome to day 4 of STAMPlorations spotlight week. Today we are showcasing The Bee's Knees: Newlyweds Extras and Sentiment Builders: Love. If a couple of those sentiments look familiar, maybe you saw them here ;)
First off the Newlyweds Extras. Today I'm sharing with you a CASE of myself. Remember these one-layer cards?
Well, one of the trends I'm calling for 2015 I'm calling "the illustrated look". So I've tried to capture that feel again with these stamps. What do you think?
Then I had the brilliant idea to make the diamonds sparkle.
Rock Candy Stickles worked great on the white card.
Wink of Stella, ahem, not so great. It seeped around the embossing and left a stain when dry :(
Must be some oil in there. Oh well. Thought I'd share that with you.
I think these are cute designs for one of those we're-getting-married-in-a-chic-old-barn kinda weddings. Know the ones I mean?
One of the other trends I don't see going anywhere in 2015 is watercolors. I achieved a watercolor look with distress inking through a mask on this card using heat embossed Sentiment Builders: Love. I think this design makes for a great card to send to a couple whose wedding you do not attend.
Bet ya didn't notice the slightly different fonts in the small sentiments. "Sending" and "to" are from Sentiment Builders: Christmas and New Year. Happy that those fonts work well together.
I'm joining the Ombre fun at Inkspirational #74.
As always, there are lots of prizes to be won - from comments left on the DT blogs and the STAMPlorations blog - and eye candy from the DT and our super special guest. Have a looksee.
