YouTube Live Crafting REPLAY with Liz – Featuring Oceanfront and On The Horizon. Welcome to the post that goes with today’s YouTube Live Coffee & Craft session. I chose to use some new products, including the Oceanfront and On The Horizon Stamp Sets and the Simply Marbleous FREE Paper. I was inspired by Michelle Taylor in Australia (Taylor Made Designs – click HERE for her website), who shared some of her designs on Instagram. The projects I shared were CASEd from Michelle’s projects, but I have changed the papers for the FREE Simply Marbleous Sale-a-Bration paper, as well as a few other details.
I chose to use Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the stamps, trying to stick to just one colour family. For the Pink Card, I used the Brights Colours, using Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight for the sky, Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana for the sea and Crumb Cake (yes, I know it is not in the Brights!) for the sane, with Soft Suede (also not a Bright!) for the grasses. Try as I might, I could not avoid bringing in the Neutrals Collection.
I die cut the image using one of the Stitched Rectangles before adding the birds and one of the sentiments from On The Horizon, using Soft Suede Marker. To help fill the space between the bottom of the image and the sentiment, I added some Linen Thread, tied in a bow.
The card base is Flirty Flamingo, so I picked the pink paper from the Simply Marbleous paper, cutting it to the size of my ‘usual’ large layer and then adding the leftover piece over the top. The finishing touch (added after the Live) was to add some of the new Pebbles Enamel Shapes Embellishments.
My second card, also CASEd from Michelle, uses the Subtles Colour Family. The sky is a mix of Balmy Blue and Pool Party, with a Post It Note circle mask for the sun. For the main ground I used Pear Pizzazz and Soft Seafoam, and then added the little hillock with Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz.
The trees (from On The Horizon) and grasses were added with more Mossy Meadow. To add a little texture to the trees, I ‘bounced’ Pear Pizzazz onto the stamp before I stamped it to the card. The sentiment and birds (both from On The Horizon) are in Soft Suede again.
This time I used my trimmer to cut the image to size, layering it on a scrap of the Simply Marbleous paper. This was added to a misty Moonlight base with another piece of the blue Simply Marbleous Paper. I added the sentiment to the bottom right corner, having ‘flagged the ends with the Banners Pick a Punch.
The finishing touch was to add a Linen Thread Bow to the left of the sentiment. Before I send the cards out I will add a Basic White layer to this inside and a strip of the Simply Marbleous paper paper to give the inside some interest.
