Amy’s first card is masculine while still feeling casual and fun. She grounded her focal point by doing a bit of creative sponging and it looks absolutely perfect. The soft diamonds in the background make a splendid subtle backdrop for her scene – almost like understated wallpaper in a den.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Glorious Globes: Basics
  • INK: Enchanted Evening, Spring Rain, Limeade Ice, Pure Poppy, Classic Kraft, Smokey Shadow
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Enchanted Evening, Limeade Ice, Pure Poppy, Blueberry Sky
  • DIES: Glorious Globes: Basics
  • OTHER: natural twine
On this card, Amy went a decidedly feminine direction. The clusters of felt flowers and die cut leaves are stunning with the stamped floral globes! And again, grounding her focal point with a sponged base worked beautifully. The addition of the speckles is just right.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Glorious Globes: Basics; Penned Elegance
  • INK: True Black, Aqua Mist, Hibiscus Burst, Summer Sunrise, New Leaf, Lilac Grace, Soft Stone
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White
  • DIES: Glorious Globes: February; Penned Elegance; Fancy Foliage Details; Bitty Button Stacks

 

The bold and modern palette of Amy’s last card is absolutely wonderful. The metallics really pop against the striking color scheme. Using the Shape Shifter circle as the focal point is a great way to incorporate loads of marvelous texture and interest.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Glorious Globes: February; Seasonal Borders: Spring
  • INK: Raspberry Fizz, True Black, Soft Stone, New Leaf, Harvest Gold, Saffron Spice, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, , VersaMark
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, True Black
  • DIES: Glorious Globes: February; Shape Shifters: Circle I; Seasonal Borders: Spring

Melissa-Phillips Melissa Phillips is featuring Lilies of the Field + Words to Live By: Kindness

Melissa chose a soft, soothing color palette for her first card of the day. She left all of the negative pieces in the spaces of the Celtic Knots frame so she was able to accentuate the details without having to struggle to hide adhesive. She also layered patterned vellum over colored cardstock to mellow the color a tad while adding a bit of interest with the pattern. Very elegant!
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Lilies of the Field, Words to Live by: Kindness
  • INK: Pale Peony, Fine Linen, Honey Nut, Lemon Tart, Spring Moss
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Sheer Basics Vellum, Chicken Scratch Gingham, and Bitty Big Harvest Gold
  • DIES: Lilies of the Field, Celtic Knots, Wine Tag
  • OTHER: White embossing powder, sequins

 

Using tags as focal points is something that Melissa does incredibly well and this card is no exception. She used two different sizes in order to incorporate a mat of patterned paper. Repeating the focal point in softer colors in the background is such a lovely way to bolster the theme without being too matchy.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Lilies of the Field, Words to Live by:  Kindness, Garden of Faith
  • INK: Autumn Rose, Fine Linen, Lilac Grace, WinterWisteria, Spring Moss, Lemon Tart
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Bitty Big: Lilac Grace
  • DIES: Lilies of the Field, Words to Live by : Kindness, Scalloped Tags
  • OTHER: Patterned paper, button, trim

 

Isn’t the lily on Melissa’s tag just so very cheerful? The yellows and oranges are such uplifting colors, ideal for a thank you project! Melissa also created one of her famous “junk bows” and it adds such dimension to her project, wouldn’t you agree?
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Lilies of the Field, Penned Elegance
  • INK: Prairie Grass, Lemon Tart, Sweet Blush, Pale Peony, Honey Nut, Spring Moss, Melon Berry
  • PAPER: Lemon Tart, Stamper’s Select White, Sheer Basics Vellum
  • DIES: Scalloped Tags, Lilies of the Field
  • OTHER: Twine, sequins, trim
