Florence Thanks A Bunch Card!

I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you with more artwork....I want to share a super simple, but absolutely lovely card with you! If features our Florence papers, Thanks A Bunch Stamp Set and coordinating Thin Cuts!

This was SO easy to create, simply add a strip of paper at the bottom, run a strip of gold shimmer trim across the middle and sponge a little Canary ink in the center of the top portion.

Then select the stamp and thin cuts design you want to use. Stamp your image on the white cardstock and position the thin cuts over it using washi tape to hold it in place. Then for the sentiment, you can BEND the stamp to follow the bend of the banner! So cool!

For the flowers and leaves I used our ShinHan Touch Twin markers. I even colored our clear sparkles with the markers to add a pop of sparkly color to the flower centers!

This card was a joy and a breeze to make! I can't wait to make a bunch more!
Supplies used:
Florence Paper
Gold Shimmer Trim

Florence Wreath Layout!

Our new Florence papers make beautiful home decor pieces, the colors are rich and warm and inviting! I used our Artistry Cricut Cartridge for the wreath (in Sweet Leaf cardstock), layered with a coordinating branch (with Calypso Lagoon paper) and flowers (in Florence Ruby paper and Colonial White cardstock)!

I added a Sweet Leaf branch from our Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

I inked everything with our Flaxen ink to give it a natural cohesion, and curled the leaves and flower petals to give them dimension and a more natural look. To finish it off, I added our beautiful Florence sequins to the flowers! They added the perfect balance of sparkle and color!

This makes a beautiful basic layout, but also a lovely framed gift for yourself or anyone!

Introducing Florence!

Florence is one of the new paper packs in our Seasonal Expression 2 Catalog! I love the rich, warm tones in this new paper pack! It is aptly named since it's colors conjure deep blue waters, and rich European  landscape and architecture!

The coordinating Complements include 2 sticker sheets and kraft die cut pieces in coordinating colors with metalic gold accents!

These adhesive-backed sequins add just the right amount of sparkle to any project in sapphire, ruby, gold and rose gold!

If you have used our Gold and Silver Foil Tape, you will LOVE our new adhesive-backed Rose Gold Foil Tape - just unroll, cut, and stick!

Our new Florence Workshops Your Way Kit includes ALL of these products in one kit for only $26.95! You can download a project and cutting guide to create 3 two-page layouts, 1 Picture My Life layout, and bonus cards!

Here are the projects:

To make these adorable cards, you will want to add on our new A Bunch Of Love Thin Cuts for $13.95.

A perfect compliment to this stamp set is our water color pencils or our ShinHan Touch Twin alcohol markers!

I'll be back with more new products soon!!
