June 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop Annual Catalog

Welcome to the June Kre8tors Blog Hop.  Our theme for this month is the new Annual Catalog!  Check out all of the wonderful cards from around the world.  I have the list of demonstrators with their links at the bottom of this blog.  First, let's check out my card.  I used the new Lilypad Lake Stamp Set and coordinating Lakeside Framelits.  This set is so peaceful for me.......I can see so many uses for it.....birthday...sympathy...thank you...thinking of you...


Here are the details of my card:
  • Pool Party Cardstock (8-1/2" X 5-1/2"), Tranquil Tide (2 of 4-1/8" X 5-3/8"), Whisper White (2 of 4" X 5-1/4" plus scraps), and a piece of copy paper (4-1/4" X 5-1/2")
  • To create the water background, I cut the 2nd largest circle from the Layering Circles Framelits centered on the piece of copy paper.
  • Center the copy paper over the Whisper White Cardstock.  Using a sponge dauber and Pool Party Ink, I sponged ink on the Whisper White Cardstock.  Then, I stamped the water stamp from the Lilypad Lake Stamp Set over the sponged Pool Party Ink.  Leave the mask (copy paper) in place until you have finished stamping the water.  It's very important to use the thinnest copy paper for your mask.  If you use cardstock for the mask, the stamped image will not cover the edges of the pool party circle.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  • Stamp the heron and lilypad from the Lilypad Lake with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock.  Color the heron with Smoky Slate Light and Pool Party Light Stampin' Blends.  I started with Smoky Slate and then, followed with Pool Party.  The Pool Party really lightens up the Smoky Slate.  For the lilypad, I colored the pad with the Old Olive Light Stampin' Blend.  I colored the flower with Rich Razzleberry Light, but then, I used the Color Lifter to add some light touches to the flower. 
  • Cut out the flower and heron with the coordinating Lakeside Framelits.  Pop up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Embellish with rhinestones.
  • Stamp the lilypad on the inside cardstock  and on the envelope flap.  Color the same as on the card front.

Here's one more look of the card with the envelope.
The items used for this card are shown at the very end of today's blog.  Thank you for joining us, and be sure to check out the other demonstrators that are participating in this blog hop!  Click on the next arrow to head over to Maria Calia's site.  If you get lost, there is a list below with all of the demonstrators.  Have fun!

Fabulous project - I love how you've sponged the background and then layered up the elements. Beautiful!
