Welcome to the Lean on Me blog hop! I have 3 different projects to share tonight and can't wait to see everyone else's projects too. The links are at the end of my blog, so be sure to check them out with me.
First off, let's start off with a card I designed using lots of Basic Grey Sugar Rush patterned papers along with these beautiful floral images:
Stamps: Lean on Me
Ink: Memento Black; SU and Memento markers
Cardstock: GinaK Smokey Slate, black, white; Basic Grey Sugar Rush dp
Other: EK Success border punch; Punch bunch leaf punch; Spellbinder oval, deckled oval, beaded oval, and label 11 dies; glue pen; orange glitter, button, twine
I stamped the flowers with some water-based markers and then trimmed around them to use as decorative embellishments to frame the sentiment focal 'tags.' Can you see all the Spellbinder Nestability dies I was able to layer to make them?
Next, I designed a 12x12 Scrapbook page that is all ready to go when I get my most recent photos developed. As I mentioned yesterday, I've been working on layouts that have the photo mats included, so once I get some of my favorite photos developed, I can add them to the ready made mats.
Lean on Me scrapbook page details
Stamps: Lean on Me; Farm Life
Ink: Versamark; black memento
Cardstock: 12x12 SU Kraft; GinaK asparagus, sweet corn, black; October Afternoon dp
Other: Basic Grey buttons and brads; ScorTape; twine; SU ribbons and chunky glitter; sewing machine; Ranger Perfect Pearls; paper piercer & template; Tim Holtz fragments; prima flowers; K& Co. rhinestone brad
The twig leaf was stamped in Versamark ink for a tone on tone look. Then, I used Versamark ink again with the stamps on the yellow card stock and applied a variety of Rangers Perfect Pearls to the images to help them pop. The shine is so pretty and subtle - very soft too.
My final project is a little treat container - look at how cute these flowers are as decorative elements on the sides. So adorable and just the perfect size!
The candy corn shows how tiny the milk carton die is - why is everything cuter when it comes in such small packages? lol!
