First off, I am enjoying my Pressed Flowers 2 set and the coordinating dies so much I can't stand it! Starting off with a simple one here, stamping the flowers and leaves in Peach Bellini, Wild Wisteria, Grass Green, Black Onyx, and then just stamping the outline of the leaves from the coordinating line art A Year of Flowers 2 in Fresh Asparagus to give it a little extra sumthin sumthin! So fun creating bold pops of color with this big blooms! I am also loving having the separate centers to make new little puffball flowers like the wisteria colored ones you see here, not just for centers! Base is GKD Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight White.
I enjoyed learning a new calligraphy style at a workshop recently and just had to create some script sentiments for you in my new set, so on trend and looks good with everything!
I shared this at our release party, but wanted to share some info! Another one I didn't use any dies, but if you DO have them, popping up that top rose would look divine, just sayin'! :) I masked an area on this white mat and stamped in the roses in GKD Red Velvet, then the ferns and leaves in Grass Green and Fresh Asparagus, and finally sponging on some Sweet Corn before removing the masks. I love how the corn turned kind of a blush color in some places, blending with the Red Velvet stamped roses before they fully dried! Base is Pure Luxury Black Onyx.
I was also really excited to find how amazing these bold flowers look paired with Gina's new Art Stencils!
One this first Christmas one, I used the poinsettia and the coordinating die with her Foliage stencil. I'll share this technique in a video I think! Colors are GKD Red Velvet, Fresh Asparagus, and Jelly Bean Green for the cardstock layer.
Greeting is also from my Pressed Flowers 2 set.
On this next one I stamped the flower and leaves in Peach Bellini and Fresh Asparagus after die cutting, and layered them with foam over the peach and asparagus sponging from the Floral Stencil!
One this one I stamped the flower and leaves in Peach Bellini and Fresh Asparagus after die cutting, and layered them with foam over the peach and asparagus sponging from the Floral Stencil! Don't both these stencils above look *made for* Pressed Flowers 2?!
I love having dies to make a quick layered embellishment to add some quick dimension to these gorgeous stencil patterns! I layered all this over my stamped Fabulous Frame because I had one stamped up and ready to go, no need to design a complicated layout. Sentiment is also from Fabulous Frame.
Base is GKD Peach bellini.
I could go on and on but have to save some surprises for upcoming videos, there are MANY! I know the team will wow us today, too :)
I made some subtler backgrounds with this glorious Tropical Skies frame today. I googled some beach photos to create this one, using Wild Dandelion rolled in Sweet Mango for the setting sun reflection image, then sponged on Moonlit Fog and Powder Blue for the water, and Peach Bellini, Sweet Corn and Powder Blue for the sky. I used a sticky note to mask the water, and added just the birds and greeting for a "take me away" virtual vacay design!
For this next one, I knew this frame with its palm tree detail would look really cool with a direct to paper technique, by just swiping on the GKD ink pads horizontally to create the sand, water and finally sky layers: Kraft, Turquoise Sea, and Ocean Mist, in that order. Stamp in this happy couple and the sentiment and layer on a Kraft base and you're done! My husband will love a card like this.

I will have fun going bolder for my next designs with this and I know Theresa will treat you to some really epic sunrises and sunsets in her upcoming videos with this magical set!
