Our final 2 stamp sets from the April Release are just gorgeous. The Fleur di lis set is illustrated by the very talented Beth Silaika, and then we have the Golf Diva, illustrated by the extremely creative Debbie Corbari. Both sets are so much fun to play with.
Here they are:
My first card for you today is from the Fleur di lis set:
My next Fleur di lis card is very feminine:
Here I used patterned paper from a stack by K & Company called Julianne. It was a gift from my dear friend Donna. The card base is GKD Pure Luxury Ivory, and I used GKD Dark Chocolate for layering. I stamped the fleur di lis on ivory card stock with Warm Cocoa ink, then cut it out with the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis die. Other dies used are Spellbinders Ribbon Buckle, and Our Daily Bread Beautiful Borders.
Next I have 2 cards for you from the Golf Diva set.
With this little gal I used GKD Innocent Pink Card Stock for the base. The green is from my stash. Patterned papers are from the DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl stack. I stamped her on GKD White Card Stock and colored her with my Copics. Then I cut her out with an oval die and layered it on a Lacey Oval die cut. I used Judy Dots for embellishment and the ball is a little dot of Enamel Accents.
And here is my final card for the April Release Blog Hop:
This little diva likes rustic golfing. I stamped her on GKD Ivory Card Stock, colored her with my Copics using the colorless marker for the polka dots on her shirt, and then fussy cut her out. I used a leaf stamp from Ruba Shevde's Flowers Bloom stamp set to stamp on a rectangle with GKD Fresh Asparagus ink, sponged a little sky on there with Memento Summer Sky ink, and layered it on the background patterned paper from the Pebbles Lakeside stack. The "green" is embossed with an embossing folder from Paper Studio, don't know the name. Everything is layered on a base of GKD Sandy Beach Card Stock, and then embellished with Judy Dots. The ball is a little dot of Enamel Accents.
