Melissa here with you today and I’ve got a fun post for Art Studio. Of course, it involves inking and such and I’m also using the awesome specialty papers from Kaisercraft that are in the May Sorbet kit. (Psst… this kit is so beautiful and packed full of awesome product. RUN to store and get it!)
For this post, I wanted to showcase the Wildflower Spot Varnish Floral paper. I cut it down to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ size and selected two sheets. Mostly, because I do enjoy making a couple of cards at once and, because I wanted to just give you a couple of ideas on how to use these papers.
First, I grabbed my favorite mists which are the Heidi Swapp Color Shine mists. Love the colors! I also am throwing in some gold mist from Jen Hadfield.
Instead of spraying it on the cards, I used a paintbrush to spread it on. Then, I did a little mist with the gold.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Then, it was time to dive into the kit and use up the beautiful papers to create some cards. For the first card, I wanted to use the awesome washi tape strips from Pretty Little Studio. I thought to wrap them in a diagonal across the bottom half of the card. They were longer and it was easy just to wrap them all the way around since I would be adhering the floral paper down to my card base.
After that, I added all the goodies to complete my card and, here is the final look for this first one:
I love how you can still see the pretty floral paper through the tape. So cool!
Alright, now on to the second card!
For this one, I wanted to combine some of the papers and show that, because they contain so much white space and calmness, they are perfect to combine on a card. No overwhelming colors and patterns. It really does end up being a breath of fresh air!
Here is the final look after everything was placed just so and a cute little cluster of embellishments was added:
Isn’t that all sorts of happy??? I really wanted to use the Thickers on this card and, sometimes that gets hard with the smaller scale of the card. However, due to the beautiful, calm nature of the papers, I love how the gold just pops off and shines! Someone will truly feel happy with this shiny card, hey???
Here are some close ups of these two cards:
Thank you so much for joining me today! I’ll be back tomorrow with another post using this awesome kit! To close, how about I just show you another pic of the May Sorbet Kit, huh? You might just need to have an opportunity to drool over it before you run to the shop to get one of your own. 🙂
And just to help ease your scrolling fingers, I include another link to the kit right HERE.
Until to tomorrow!
