These samples are from Stampin' Up!'s fantastic Love You Much Bundle which is 20% off through the end of the month. Once again, SU has made a punch that matches the stamp set which is fantastic for those of us who are scissor-impaired. If you click on the image in the right hand column, you can get the scoop on the sale (and order it from me LOL). It's a stamp set, designer paper and coordinating punch. I LOVE IT MUCH!
This first project was the one that we made at stamp clubs this month. I copied the idea of the hearts coming out of the envelope from several samples I saw on SCS. Cute, huh?!
This next one I was playing around with my Watercolor Wonder Crayons and seeing if I could emboss them. As it turns out, you can! I used the WWC on the main image of the heart and blended using my blender pen. Then, I used my Versamarker & WWC for the flowers and outside edge and embossed them with Irridescent Ice. You can't really tell from the scan, but it looks sparkly in real life.
Since I had the Watercolor Wonder Crayons out, I continued to play with them and did the watercolor wash technique. The rest is kind of self-explanatory, I hope.
I have some more samples to post that feature retiring stamp sets, so please visit again before the 18th.
