I couldn't let the fabulous and versatile The More The Merrier Hostess Set go unnoticed in my Last Chance Countdown!
This is a Level 3 set, so while its unlikely any will be earned in less than 2 days...you still have a chance to select it with your $500 online order!
No really! Gather up your friends, order some retired merchandise, stock up on card stock (which is increasing in price in the new catalog), and put a $500 order together before 11:59pm on June 30. I'm optimistic! :-)
Are you ready for more bright and cheery, summertime cards?
I wasn't lying, was I? I need my sunglasses! All of that fun background paper comes from the retiring Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Kit featuring retiring Pixie Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive. I used Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen on two different images from the More The Merrier set.
Here's some additional examples of this set in action:
This is a card that we did at our Spring Kidslink event. Along with the cupcakes, the retiring Celebrate Everything was used here. It opens vertically, and the Scallop Edge Punch and old Sale-A-Bration paper layer nicely when it's closed. Same watercolor technique was used. Colors are So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Sahara Sand.
Here's a silver shimmery snowman card we created at my holiday workshops last year. Again, I used the Watercolor Pencils (this set is perfect for that technique) to color in the snowmen. I brushed on Platinum Shimmer Paint (which is in the new catalog) on the Bashful Blue background. The Taken With Teal piece is stamped with snowflakes from Serene Snowflakes (also coming back in the catalog—yay!). The snowflake images were sponged with Frost White Shimmer Paint mixed with a few drops of Bashful Blue Re-Inker before stamping.Angie
