Julie

Welcome to the July release!  Lots of fabulous inspiration to come, and it is only day 1.  I have 2 projects today - the first is a thank you card that is simple and shimmery!

jmog_so-grateful-for-you2

I never have enough thank you cards, and I love the idea of this one.  You could of course stamp the lovely "grateful" from The Big, the Bold and Blessings, but I wanted it a bit larger.  I used the coordinating w&w digital files to cut the word at approximately 5 inches wide.  Then, using the uber shimmery Heidi Swapp Color Shine sprays in primrose and mustard, I spritzed the word here and there to get a pretty gradient look.

jmog_so-grateful-for-you1

Once I finished drying it with my heat tool, I added foam tape to pop it up.  The little words are from the same set and are stamped in black Versafine ink and the lovely sequins in sundrop and light sundrop are the perfect shades of yellow with pink iridescent.  *happy place*

My second project is a digital scrapbook page for a project I will be working on throughout the year - a family reunion scrapbook.  I wanted to create a sweet cover and I knew that the new "family" image would be perfect, but I am making this album mostly digital and maybe some hybrid pages. So, I turned again to my w&w digital elements and created this page.

jmog_family-album

My first item to tackle was how to get these two photos to work on the same layout - it turns out the my Great Grandmother's jewelry in the photo is nearly the same shade of teal as in the color photo, so that was my jumping off point.  I also knew I wanted to add some woodgrain, and I used the paper from our w&w daily grind collection of papers, and then scoured through my many digital collections to find colors that would work with the color photo.

jmog_family-album_title_closeup

 In this closeup, you can see the family title element is colored to coordinate with the photo but could also be masked with a digital paper, like the heart that is tucked under the y.  That heart is from our The Write Stuff: Love Story digital files. The font shown in the title is from Laura Worthington, Adorn Slab Serif.

  jmog_family-album_pennant_closeup

I made one more page element using images from tomorrow's set, Scenery: It's a Wonderful Pennant.  I used the diagonal pennant, plus both the size 1 and size 2 solid pennants to create the whole element.  The H is in the same font, just typed in white and much larger, and set off with the contrasting felt flower.  What I love about our stamp sets and coordinating digital files is that they both work well for scrapbooking and cardmaking.  The sky's the limit!

Shay

I am here with 2 really simple cards and for whatever reason I was on a red kick. :-)

shay_family1

My first card uses "family" stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in gold from The Big, the Bold and Blessings and other little words from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy and The Big, the Bold and You stamp sets along with "4ever" from The Write Stuff: Love Story stamped in black to create a custom love message onto a die cut red heart from Lifestyle Crafts.  I used pickled raspberry Tim Holtz Distress Ink with a mini ink blending tool with the falling hearts stencil from Simon Says Stamp and then with the ink blending tool edged the heart.  I added the heart with foam dimensional adhesive to a card base that I added a diagonal half of patterned paper from Basic Grey.

Last is some gold sequins, of course!

My next card features the big "blessings" from the set.

shay_blessing1

I decided to doctor blessings from The Big, the Bold and Blessings into blessing.  I used tape to mask the "s" while inking up the stamp with Versamark and then removed the tape before I stamped.  I stamped my sentiment using the little words from The Big, the Bold and You onto a panel of vellum with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The floral panel is made by stamping the largest flower from The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom repeatedly on a piece of watercolor paper in festive berry Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  I used a water brush and extended the flower outside its original shape.  I let it dry and then stamped the flower found in The Big, the Bold and Seasons (premiering later this week) into the center with red royal Hero Arts Mid-tone Shadow Inks.

Originally I was just going to sew the vellum sentiment panel on the floral panel, but as I was sewing it did not sit flat so I decided to make a little shaker pocket instead by adding red and iridescent sequins.

Last I edged the watercolor panel with picked raspberry Tim Holtz Distress Ink and adhered it to a white card base.

Now, you will not want to miss the delightful projects by our guest stars and The Talent!
