Today's swap card was created by fellow demo Marilyn S. ... and I really like how she paired the free Sale-a-Bration stamp set "Avant Garden" with a Designer Series Paper from our big catalog. It is called "Blooms & Bliss" and WOW those 2 work awesome together. Don't you agree...
One of the items you can earn for FREE during this year's Sale-a-Bration is the Designer Series Paper called "Inside the lines". And while it is a great customizable coloring page kind of paper, you don't have to use it just in that way!
The other day I had started to play with my new "So in Love" Bundle... And then today I decided that I wanted to watercolor with my Watercolor Pencils but using a Blender Pen, not Aqua Painter...So I did... and came up with this:
I had fun coloring today and hope this inspires you to pull out your watercolor pencils that you still have from years gone.. If you don't have any yet... we can fix that! Just let me know and we'll get them ordered for you. They are so much nicer to color with than with markers (in my opinion)
The Bundle "Special Reason" is one that could be overlooked easily, I think.
Here is a little card for you that features the larger flower as a laser-cut (window):
I love that you can use the framelits in TWO ways... as laser-cut as above or, as true die-cut. You'd simply cut the detailed part first and then run it through the machine again, but this time the outline shape wa placed over the previously cut detailed shape... and that will make it a removeable shape. Pretty cool!
Oh and if you are wondering what kind of Designer Series Paper is behind the flower cut out... it's not paper! It's ink! Pedkaboo Peach ink was applied to a clear stamp block, then it was spritzed with rubbing alcohol and "stamped" onto the white cardbase...
