Sneak Peek Blog tour!

Do you remember this post??  Did you notice I put down July instead of June in the title??  LOL!  Anyway, some of us angels over on Paper Wings are having a blog tour of some new stamp sets coming out in the new Inspiration Book & Catalogue that will be available the end of the month!  So here is the FULL view of my card using the set Twinkle In the Eye, a hostess set.  For the particulars about this card please check the original post.


Now for a new card...

I wanted to do one using a flower I made from a 6 petal flower punch.  What do you think of this?


I used Sands of Time SWIC designer paper.  And I used the new stamp set called Give Praise to Him. All images are stamped with Noir PH ink. There is a LOT of dimension on this card!  Check this out:


Here's the flower.  I used the Stardust Clear Gel pen on the edges of each petal and 3 small drops of Crystal lacquer to make dew drops.  And the bee, he has a set of transparent wings made out of vellum!  I also punched the leaves and added a little score for the center vein then edged with Jardin Moss PH ink.



And how do you like my punched flower pot?  I swiped this burgundy pot with my Brilliance Moonlight White ink, curled it then added a double layer of foam mounting tape to keep the center raised up.  This card will definitely be hand delivered as there is no way one can send this unless it's in a small box.


To see more ideas using soon-to-be released stamp sets please check out these angels' sites!

I've had to fix some links for these wonderful angels.  Seems like blogger scrambled a few.  Sorry.

Well - what a surprise - thanks bunches for the "how to" on the curled paper flowers and the bee sure adds deminson to the project. Great work. And the little girl is darling too, I am getting several ideas on how to use her. Thanks for playing.
