This is my interpretation of the theme. I love black and gold together so I created this vintage circus ATC using red and gold instead. Please visit: http://createdbyhandchallenge.wordpress.com/ to join in on the challenge this week!
All stamps and supplies by Stampin' Up! These hydrangea blooms are a sneak peek at one of the new hostess sets which will be unveiled in the new catalog starting July 1st. Technique: Watercolor, Glimmer Mists & Glitter.
I am the guest hostess this week at Sunday Postcard Art and I chose one of my favorites, Art Nouveau, as the theme. Please visit: http://sundaypostcardart.wordpress.com/ to join the challenge and to see all the elegant submissions this week.
This is my first attempt at one of those Flower Pot cards (template can be found on Splitcoaststampers.com) The top layer of flowers are attached to the sentiment card that pulls out. They are quite addictive so I'm sure I'll be making more. All stamps and supplies by Stampin' Up! Stamps: (111626) Eastern Blooms and (113800) Matchbox Messages.
Along with my other ventures, I'm also a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. I created these cards yesterday as samples for my upcoming workshops in June. I've had both these sets for awhile and this is my first time playing with them: (114958) "Embrace Life" and (114395) "Dream Gardens". I think our new embossing folder is perfect for the Asian theme as well: (119976) Square Lattice.
