On May 21 EIGHT winners will be selected from the comments left on the designers' blogs listed below. Each winner will receive a new stamp set, and the choice of one embossing powder and glitter to go with their new set.

The new stamp sets are:

Travel Mixed Media #607

Church Sympathy #604   (digital available)
Across the Miles #603   (digital available)
Spunky with Flowers #605 (digital available)
Garden Silhouette #600 (digital available)

Now a little bit about my project.

I've chosen the Across the Miles stamp set to showcase today.  After coloring the image with Copic markers, I added Dimensional Glue to the flower centers and covered it with Bubble Gum glitter.

Using a WeR Memory Keepers Envelope board, I created an envelope to fit the image and one of the sentiments from the set was randomly heat embossed over the entire area with Tangy Tangerine embossing powder.

Numbers and Letters embossing folder (by Spellbinders) was used to create the background for my envelope.  I ran some VersaMark over the entire area and sprinkled some Opaline embossing powder over it and heat set.

I added a bit of twine to the end of my fishtail banner, which I scored along the edges with a score board.  Another sentiment is also heat embossed with Tangy Tangerine embossing powder on the banner.  As a finishing touch, the Distressed Embossing technique was done around the edges of the card base, using Distress Ink (Mowed Lawn) and Clear embossing powder.

I will be showcasing the other new stamp sets in this month's release each weekday beginning on May 21st, including the Nesting Bird (which you've already seen a sneak peek for).  So I hope you come back (daily) to see the rest of my projects with these new stamp sets.

The blog hop winners will be announced on May 21 on Facebook, the SNS blog, and on our blogs:

Fabulous card, Anne! Love the image and the way you embossed the sentiment over and over again. What a great idea! It makes a perfect design element. :-D

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Anne! We're twins! We both chose the little boy for our samples. The look so different, too, for being twinsies. Love the colors you used, and the shading in his overalls. The use of an envelop in your card is a fabulous idea (I would never have thought of it, but now I can case it LOL) Great card! thank you very much! hugs, de
