More June Release Cards | Patricia

Hello Friends!  I have a few cards I wanted to share on the Evelin T Designs blog here using the Floral SurpriseUnder the Sea: MerFriends, and the Best Friends Fur-Ever! sets.  


First is the Floral Surprise.  The first card, I colored the entire image with watercolors, let dry, and then came back with detail using polychromos pencils.  For this second card today, I used just the polychromes pencils for a softer look.

After the first layer of coloring, I went back with a just a little bit of shading, keeping this soft.  For the base of the card, I blended a pale blue ink, fussy cut the stamped and colored image, and foam adhered.

Before foam adhering, I placed and stamped the sentiment at the bottom.  LOVE Evelin’s fonts for sentiments!

Next, is the Under The Sea: Merfriends stamp set.  I colored all the images with watercolors, let dry, and fussy cut them out.  Then I went looking in my stash of leftover mixed media creations and found pieces along with pattern paper from my stash to layer for my base.

For the first layer of the card panel, I used a die cut leftover from my first card using this set, then layered and stitched the pattern paper and mixed media panel for my background.  The background was made with Nuvo Shimmer Powder and Embellishment Mousse.  Then I adhered my images.

I used another leftover mixed media piece to stamp my sentiment.

Next is the Best Friends Fur-Ever! stamp set.  I colored all of these pieces with watercolor, fussy cut them out, and then used pattern papers from my stash to create a base, then clustered the images together.

And again, I am so happy with Evelin’s fonts and sentiment choices.  So usable and so many possibilities. My first card I created with this set, was just the larger monster and a coffee sentiment.

Hope you have enjoyed the teams inspiration and have picked some favorite sets to purchase!  Hard to choose, but really ALL so wonderful!

Sneak Peek #4

Sneak Peek #4 is for the book lovers in us 🙂 This set is called Reading Buddies and this card features piles of books but can you guess what else is included in this set? It’s going to be a surprise but for those of you who are pretty much familiar with the stamp sets that I have designed before, you might have already made a correct guess as to what else is included!

Sneak Peek #2

Day 2 of our Sneak Peek Week and I hope that you have enjoyed what you are seeing so far!

Today’s sneak peek is called Evergreen Foliage. It features different types of leaves, branches and foliage that you can use separately or build up to create layers and dimensions. I love how this set can be use for a multitude of occasions from birthday wishes to even a get well soon card.

I might have also included images that you can color or paint in and also solid images that you can just stamp with your choice of ink. What do you think?

See you tomorrow for Sneak Peek #3.
