Knock Knock! Who’s there? June Sneak Peeks!
Hey there, crafty friends! Did you catch our big news last week? I have been thrilled by the response to our brand new ink that coordinates with our premium cardstock colors. Our amazing Creative Team and several special guests took the ink for a test drive and shared their projects with you last week. If you missed out last week, you can start HERE with the big announcement. We also offered a prize and many of you left comments for your chance to win. The lucky winner of 6 full size ink pads and refills in the color of her choice is:
Congratulations, Donna! Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your mailing address and the six colors of your choice! I hope you love the ink as much as I do!
I can’t let a week pass by without some excitement so I thought we’d get started with sneak peeks for our June Release! Are you ready for summer? If not, you will be after checking out projects from the Creative Team this week. They’ve been busy designing summer scenes with fresh florals, a scooter, a surf bus, and a trendy pineapple too! All of the new products will be available for purchase at the TE web store beginning on Thursday at 7am PST! So grab your favorite beverage and join me this week to see what’s new and find out how you can win it before you can buy it!
I’m back this release with my Question of the Day. Here’s a little recap of how things work: Each day of sneak peeks, I will post a Question of the Day and you can leave a comment with your answer for a chance to win one of our new release products or Grand Prize! To continue celebrating the release of our ink, our Grand Prize this month will be a full set of mini ink pads (all 12 colors!). I love reading your comments and learning more about you through the stories you share so don’t be shy!
Today I’m giving away the Fresh Florals stamp set!
Leave your comment before Wednesday, June 8th at 11:59pm PST. One entry per person. Each comment will also be entered into our Grand Prize drawing for a full set of our new mini ink pads! Winners will be chosen at random and announced on Thursday, June 9th, 2016.
And now for today’s projects! I’ve had so much fun using the latest addition to the TE family of products; our premium ink that coordinates perfectly with our cardstock. So it makes sense that the first project I stamped for this release pairs the bold, solid images in the Fresh Florals stamp set with our new ink. It’s a match made in heaven!
I started by embossing the Chevron embossing folder onto watercolor cardstock. Then I watercolored inside random openings with various Zig markers. I like to scribble my Zig markers onto an acrylic block and pick up the color with a water brush.
After finishing the background I decided to highlight a sentiment with the smallest frame from the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate and build a small bouquet in the corner of the frame. I stamped and die cut more flowers and leaves than I needed as I like to have lots of options while building bouquets. Don’t worry… I kept the extras to use on another bouquet later!
Here’s a look at the new products I used on this project:
My Question of the Day came out of the design of my next card. I love the Door to Door series and really enjoyed envisioning what a summer doorstep could look like. I’ve been thinking about painting the door to our home teal (yes, I’m slightly teal obsessed), so I thought this was a good opportunity to try it out first. It’s not quite the same commitment to cut a teal door out of paper as it is to paint the door of our home! *wink*
The card size is A2, however, the roof sticks out over the top of the card so this would need a larger sized envelope. I embossed the card base and the planters with the Brick embossing folder.
I was also tickled to discover that the previously released Little Bits – Flag is sized to work with the Door to Door in addition to the banner and sentiment from the Welcome Home stamp set.
Here’s a look at all of the new products I used on this card followed by the complete supply list:
