Welcome to our CHA New Release Hop! I can tell you all of us at Laura's Loft have been beyond excited to bring you so many awesome products and this hop has been seriously cool to bring together. We have tons of awesome projects, a store wide 15% off sale through 4/3/16 (so you can pick up all those new products!), $10 off a $75 purchase and a prize package giveaway to enter. I don't think we could fit anymore in this hop if we tried! Giveaway entry details are at the bottom of the post along with the coupon code :)
You should have landed here from Deana's blog, but if not, Laura's is the place to start. To enter the giveaway, we ask that you comment on each blog in the hop. We love to hear what you think :) I have three projects to share, so lets get started on the good stuff!
Avery Elle Sentimental die set
Tim Holtz Mini Stencils Set #4: Blossom
Ranger Texture Paste
Distress Ink in Cracked Pistachio (Set #13) and Lucky Clover (Set #15)
Virginia Turtle Enamel Dots
Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies
Doodlebug Bumblebee Daydream cardstock
White fun foam
White card base
Cut black panel with the second largest stitched rectangle die. Using stencil and palette knife, apply texture paste in a smooth, even layer over the black panel. I use post-it notes to mask off around the stencil to avoid paste in any unwanted areas. Remove stencil and let dry. Wash stencil and knife immediately; if the paste dries, it will ruin the stencil. While the paste dries, cut a panel from the yellow cardstock with the largest stitched rectangle die. Also cut the sentiment using the hugs die from the yellow cardstock. Cut a piece of fun foam slightly smaller than the black panel. Once the paste is dry, apply Cracked Pistachio using a blending tool over the paste. Apply Lucky Clover over a few areas to vary the color. Adhere yellow panel to the card base. Adhere fun foam to black panel. Center black panel over the yellow and adhere. Glue sentiment die cut to the black panel and trim off the ends. Add enamel dots and the card is complete.
Tim Holtz Distress Woodgrain Cardstock
Dylusions Mica Spray (Vibrant Turquoise)
Tim Holtz Mini Stencils Set #4
Altenew Botanical Garden Stamp Set
Altenew Painted Inspiration Stamp Set
Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die set
Distress Ink is Wilted Violet (Set #15)
VersaMark embossing ink
WOW Metallic Gold Superfine embossing powder
White card base
Archival Black ink
Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Amethyst sequins
Little Things sequin mix in Warm Golden Glow
Daniel Smith Watercolors: Quinacridone Rose
Silver Brushes Black Velvet #6
Arrange the trellis stencil diagonally across the woodgrain cardstock, from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. Mask off the surrounding paper with post-it notes or scratch paper. Shake Turquoise Mica spray vigorously and spray over stencil, being sure to get even coverage. Remove masks and let dry. Using the MISTI, stamp the flower images in Archival black ink. You'll want to use a waterproof ink so that it doesn't run when you add watercolor. I wanted the roses to stand out, so I only applied color to the roses, not the leaves, stems or butterfly. Stamp the sentiment in VersaMark on Vellum. Emboss in Gold. I used the largest of the Wonky Stitches dies width wise to add the stitching detail along the edges of the sentiment and leaving it long enough to wrap around the back of the panel. After the watercolor is dry, blend Wilted Violet lightly around the edges of the panel. This will help the texture of the woodgrain to stand out as well as help to highlight the stencil design and shimmer from the mica spray. Add adhesive to the back of the panel to adhere vellum. Adhere panel with vellum to the card base. Add sequins with glue dots and the project is complete.
