Good Afternoon … welcome to another week of Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week we are making projects for Mother’s Day
It’s Mother’s Day here in Australia on Sunday! If you are a Mum or Grandmum or a StepMum I do hope your family treats you to a lovely day. Now if you are one of those people who has a Mum, Grandmum or StepMum then I hope you’ve done your shopping or have plans to spoil her! If she’s a crafty Mum you could always arrange a Gift Voucher with me which I’ll email you to print out to give to her and that will save you having to go shopping with a billion other people on the weekend!
I’ve created a lovely card and bag gift set using the Petal Palette Stamp Set ..
This little set was designed and created in under an hour and I couldn’t go past using the gorgeous Flirty Flamingo for my colour. I love that it’s hanging around for the next few years – well till the next Colour Revamp at least!
The bag was made using the Gift Bag Punch Board and we made the medium sized bag. Once the scoring was done we clear embossed the roses on the main panels. Heat Embossing adds so much charm and elegance to a project.
The card features basic Heat Embossing on the the Sentiment panel and Watercolour Emboss Resist on the main panel. Both the images are stamped in Versamark and then Embossed with White Embossing powder. The Roses are then watercoloured with the ink from the ink pads and an Aqua Painter. The Pool Party around the image makes it pop and gives depth and dimension to the card.
Latte Technique Club
Today’s project comes from the first of my new Wednesday Technique Club. Each month we’ll cover a different base technique and each week it will be a different way to use that base technique. So for the month of May it’s Heat Embossing. Over the course of May we’ll cover Heat Embossing Basics, Emboss Resist, Stained Glass, Embossing with Classic Ink Pads and Floating Reinkers as a bonus technique. Club Members will receive a Technique Sheet which gives the basics of the technique, tips and the variations we’ll be covering over the month.
