Hopefully you've had time to get back on track after the holiday craziness!!! Personally I'm getting friendly with the new Occasions Catalog!!! Can I just say WOW!!
So welcome to another Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop!!! And a special welcome to those hopping on over from Helen's blog!! Hope you're enjoying the party this week!
So lovin' this week's colors:
Pool Party, Crushed Curry, Old Olive
Pool Party, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip
The Pool Party makes me think of summer!!! Gosh knows I need a touch of summer right now!!! Its 3 degrees F in MA as I write this!!! Yuck!!!
The Added Piece - add circles!
So as I said, I broke out some of my new goodies from the AMAZING new Occasions Catalog!!! I went with the second batch of colors for no apparent reason. Just kinda liked the combo!!!
So first the card:
I can pretty much guarantee I will have everything in this catalog before the thing ends!!! This week I wanted to feature the new
Spiral Flower Originals Die! Most of the die cutting right now is done with the Framelits, but we forget that these Original Dies started the whole thing! They have a good use too!
I always wanted to make these flowers & tried before with scallop edged circles & cutting & all. It's seriously a pain to do tho!! This die makes it so easy!!! just out out & roll!!! Works best with hot melt! Glad I have my Silicone Craft Sheet! You will LOVE using that with hot melt!!!
Here's a close up of the flower:
Only caviat with this is you really can't mail it! The flower stands up about 3/4" off the page. Nice for giving with no envie tho!!!
I just took a little piece of the Wild Wasabi cardstock & fringed it. Would've been easier if I had the new Fringe Scissors!! Snipping that fringe is tedious!!!
For the circles, I just pulled a bunch of the
Circle Framelits & Scallop Edge Circle Punches & had at it! A little embossing with the Perfect Polka Dots TIEF. Just enough to add some texture & interest!
So hope you liked! Now hop on over to Laura's Blog to see how she's spiraling this week!!!
