Slimline Layered Floral featuring Alex Syberia Design's Just Wonderful

Updated: Jan 12

Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been busy getting my house in order to put it up for sale. It will soon be on the market and I have mixed emotions. Our homes are much more than 'sticks and mortar' .... all the memories, good and bad, are woven into the fabric of each room. And, of course, I will miss my dear friends. I have much to look forward to and I try to focus on the reason for moving back to Alberta ... to be closer to my daughter. The pandemic has been a time of reflection for me. Because our visits were much fewer this past year, I know I will treasure the time we will be able to spend together. Family is everything.

I am excited to announce that I am a member of Alex Syberia Design's new Design Team! Such an honour! I love working with her images. Her art work is incredible and her talent is reflected in the February Release. Today's post features Just Wonderful and I have included a summary of two other cards using other images from this release; Flower Garden and Hello Gorgeous.

The Just Wonderful digital image was printed on 80lb Neenah Classic Crest card stock. The floral was copic coloured:

Flowers R00, RV11, 13, 17

Leaves N2, 4, 5, BG93

Bird RV11, 13, 17 (breast)

N2, 4, 5 (body)

Y02 (beak)

The panel and a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock were cut with the second largest die in Pinkfresh Studio's Slimline Stitched Rectangles. The Bristol Smooth panel was stencilled with Pinkfresh Studio's Diamon Plaid stencil using Milled Lavender and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide inks. The floral panel was fussy cut along the flowers' edge and mounted on white sheet foam. The excess foam was trimmed off and the panel adhere to the stencilled one. The panel was layered on Simon Says Stamp's Midnight Green cardstock that had been cut with the largest die in the stitched rectangle die set and then mounted on a card base measuring 4" by 9". Simon Says Stamp's Spring Blessings was die cut from the Midnight Green card stock and black foam and stacked. Sparkle was added to the bird and card embellished with Nuvo Dream Drops.

The Hello Gorgeous digital image was printed on Canson XL water colour paper. The painting was done primarily with Mission Gold, Some White Gold from Gansai Tambi Starry Colors added some shine to the sunglasses. The panel was trimmed to 4" by 5 1/4". The 3rd largest die from Simon Says Stamp's A2 Thin Frames die set was used to cut the panel and a matte gold frame. The rectangular panel was mounted on black sheet foam. The outer frame and gold frame were adhered to an A2 sized piece of black card stock followed by the foam backed, rectangular panel. The main sentiment HEY is from Simon Says Stamp's Hey Love and was die cut in matte gold card stock and black foam. The secondary sentiment is self adhering from Tim Holtz' Small Talk Casual. The sentiment was highlighted with Nuvo Crystal Drops Mustard Gold.

Flower Garden

The Flower Garden digital image was printed on 80lb Neenah Classic Crest card stock. The flowers were copic coloured with RV63, 66 and 69. Y11, 13 and 18 were used for the flower centres. A piece of black card was foiled with Spellbinder's Glimmer Hot Foil System. The frame and sentiment used are included when the system is purchased. The inside of the oval frame was fussy cut and mounted on black sheet foam. The foam was trimmed. The sentiment was foiled on the floral panel and attached to the underside of the frame panel before being adhered to an A2 sized card base. Small gold confetti topped with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew embellished the frame.
