Framed Sweet Peas

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know! 

The cards I'm sharing today are two featuring the initial idea I had while watching the launch shows for both Linda's new Contour plates and the Frame-Its dies...



All the frames are created with a single pass through your die cutting machine, and if I'd not already created the card I shared a couple weeks ago, I'd have used 3 of them on each card... but there's plenty of time for that.  And for once I used a grid to guide the perforations prior to cutting instead of doing them freehand.  Grin!

Card: Unbranded white and Clarity's cinnamon parchment
Groovi Plates: Linda's Sweet Pea Contour, Straight Basic grid and Nested Scallop Squares (not embossed, but used as a placement guide for everything)
Tools and embellishments: Nested Square Doodle Frame-Its die, Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating tools, Perga color pens and Perga glitter

Delicate Sweet Peas

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know! 

Before I share today's card with you, I must apologize for my absence, excepting scheduled DT posts.  Life has been crazy for some time, which is also why I'm posting this immediately it's written on Tuesday instead of scheduling it for tomorrow!

With that said, today's card features a new Groovi innovation from Linda Williams and Clarity... Contour plates, on which the embossed line art varies in width, giving a calligraphy look.  As always, artist extraordinaire Linda's work is STUNNING... 


In keeping with the delicate blooms, I colored the images lightly at the edges with a pink pencil, blending the color into the rest of the petals.  I also love how the differing colors on the background paper change the colors of them... so I hope you'll agree that this post was worth waiting for?

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity's clear parchment and designer paper
Groovi Plates: Linda's Sweet Pea Contour
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating and cutting tools, Perga liner pencils, blending oil and nibs, and rhinestones from my stash

Challenges...
