Sneak Peeks

I was asked to design with 3 sets from The Angel Company's newest release "Serendipty Street".  Many of my favorite samples weren't used in the publication, and I wanted to share a few with you now!  So, here we go!

This was my FAVORITE sample!  I just loved how the "ribbon berries" turned out!  I had the panel all colored and just felt it was missing something and then this idea just struck!  I punched small holes in the panel, pulled the ribbon through the hole and then knotted it and pulled the other end back down through the hole to the back. 

You can also see that the bird is paper pieced.

I colored the leaves and branch and the bird UNDER the paper pieced part with my colored pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits (OMS).

In the photo above, you can see the dimension on the card.  The bird is popped up and so is one layer of the nestabilities label die.  The ribbon is tied between the two nestabilities layers. 

This next sample uses my FAVORITE TAC set "Victorian Elements".   I was so thrilled when I was asked to design with this set.

I just love the feel of this card.  All the elements together just make me happy! :) I wish I still had it. LOL!

The main tag image is embossed with white embossing powder and the background is stamped with Brilliance Moonlight White ink.  The wavy edges on the tag and border are cut with my Cloud scissors and I punched tiny holes in the scalloped edge on the tag.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll share more samples that didn't make it later on!  Be sure to stop back Sunday evening for a Valentine's Day blog hop!
