Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Hang in There Card

Fo my first card I couldn't wait to use the Infinity Frames. I have been wanting something like this for a longtime as a paper crafter and knowledge this will be an important basic in my collection. I love that I can use one, two or more frames and they are all perfectly cut the same thickness. There endless options for nesting and layering. One of my favorites is the full size frame that coordinates perfectly with an A2 sized card. It gives the edges of the card a nice clean, even border every time.

Sentiment

I stamped the flowers from Stemmed Statements on the card front first and colored them with Copic Markers. The smaller frame was the perfect size for this sentiment.

Well Done Card

I love the script that Heather uses for all of her Ways to Say sets, so on this project I decided to use that as a major focal point for the card.

Sentiment

I also used the geranium from Stemmed Statements, colored here with Copic Markers.

Good Luck Card

Any watercoloring technique looks beautiful with the Stemmed Statements, but I am really partial to the emboss resist technique with them.

Watercolor

I had always wanted a clover image to use with a "Good Luck" sentiment, so here it is!

Down

The soft blue watercoloring in the corner helps to ground the floral images.

A Million Thanks by Laurie Schmidlin

Laurie always does stunning things with black and this card is certainly no exception. The striking black and gold scheme really brings out the detail of the floral elements. The way the frame grounds everything and helps to balance out the focal point makes the Infinity Frames die set a must have!

Hello  Gorgeous by Laurie Schmidlin

The colors Laurie selected just pop from the Kraft carsick background. It would have been easy for the sentiment to get lost but by placing it on a black banner, it stands out and draws your attention to the bottom of the card.

Infinity Frames by Laurie Schmidlin

I love the way Laurie used the frames in a non-traditional way and created this beautiful modern collage. Note that the sentiment included in the Infinity Frames Sentiments set can be used both inside the frames and on the frames, giving you endless design options.

Keeway-Tsao

Keeway Tsao is joining me today, featuring Stemmed Statements.

Keeway has such a wonderful touch with her watercoloring skills and this project certainly highlights that. The background complete with speckles was done in such a way that it leads your eye down towards the sentiment.

IMG_1679_800

I am loving how Keeway paired a couple floral elements together from Stemmed Sentiments and used twine to "tie" them together along with the sentiment. It's little details like this that allow you to add a sentiment in a creative way without having it overpower the delicate florals.

The sponging and masking Keeway used on the Mix & Mat: Postal die-cut was done in such a way that the the two opposite corners that feature the sentiments is what is emphasized. The slight angle that she tilted the mat contributes to the design immensely.
