May Pal’s Blog Hop

 

2016badge-watermelon

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May 2016.  We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects that are “stepped up” by using textures or fun techniques. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Remarkable You is such a beautiful stamp set and I was so happy to see it in the new catalog! I chose to use Gold Emboss Powder on water color paper and then splatter on Wink of Stella Gold.

I used Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and  Cucumber Crush reinkers.   My flowers were made with a combination of regular watercoloring and the Floating Reinker Technique.  I believe Sandi MacIver is the originator of the Floating Reinker Technique.

So what do you do with the flowers where the ink runs outside the lines?  Cut out the flower and make another card. 🙂

I didn’t want to waste the Gold Foil paper, so I cut out ovals and again made more cards.

    Beth, these cards are spectacular! I’ve never seen this technique, but sure want to try it! My favorite is the first one with the splatter. Beautiful job!

  2. Beth (Post author)

    Thanks Ruth! It really was my first try. I will certainly try this technique again. Thanks for your sweet comments!

  3. Ruth S.

    Beth, all I can say is “WOW!!” My favourites are the variations of the first one but they are all so beautiful. Thank you for sharing your tips on using the card to the max and for recreating with the mistakes! If this was your first try with this technique, I look forward to your projects when you feel you have perfected it!

    You need Remarkable You Tonya! Can’t wait to see what you make with it.

  5. Beth (Post author)

    Thanks Katy! I always appreciate your comments!

  6. Beth (Post author)

    Thanks Kim! Glad I picked your favorites! I’ve never done this technique before, but it may become one of my favorites too!

  7. Beth (Post author)

    Thanks Pam! I try not to waste, especially the more expensive supplies. 🙂

  8. Pam Dotts

    Lovely cards, Beth! I love how you utilized all your supplies by making more cards!

  9. Kim Jolley

    Well…you used one of my favorite stamp sets with one of my favorite techniques. What’s not to love? Gorgeous.

    Hi Tonya! This was my first time doing the Floating Reinker Technique. Some of the water “floated” too far which inspired me to cut out some of the flowers. Sometimes the best cards come from mistakes. Thanks for the sweet comment!

  11. Katy McGloin

    Beautiful, Beth!

  12. Tonya Denton

    Remarkable You is on my wish list . . . along with many other stamp sets! LOL! I love both of your cards! I have yet to try the Floating Reinker Technique.
