Welcome back to another blog hop ! This time we are showcasing some of our favourites from the new catalogues and offering suggestions as to how you might spend you $90 in order to earn free product from the SAB catalogue.
For my cards, I used Mediterranean Moments - not a set I thought I thought I would choose but I am really loving it's versatility .
My first card was a happy accident ! I was searching through my framelits for a way to highlight my design when i happened upon my window framelits ! Imagine my delight to find that my image fit perfectly inside the window opening !
I have used a combination of colouring techniques , water colouring and watercolour pencils and have used Tip Top Taupe . Mint Macaroon , Sweet Sugar Plum with some Old Olive and Calypso Coral for the flowers and foliage . The sentiment is from Sitting Here and i have also used the Brick Wall embossing folder . I hope you love this card as much as I do !
Some of the main items required for this card are :
Mediterranean Moments C 143191 $35
Brick wall embossing folder 138288, $15

My next card also uses Mediterranean Moments . Here I have used the emboss resist technique . First I clear heat embossed the image , then sponged on some Crumb Cake ink . I felt it needed something to make it pop so then I cut a frame using my Lots Of Labels framelits and some Early Espresso card stock . Still I was not done ! I cut some " flowers and trailing vines from my new Succulent framelit dies out of our gorgeous copper foil ! A few strands of copper metallic thread finished this card off together with some copper heat embossing for the sentiment .
Succulent framelit dies 142757 $56

Lastly, I combined two stamp sets to create this next card . First I stamped the image of the lady in the rain from Beautiful You using Black Archival ink . I coloured the image using my water colour pencils , then masked the image and heat embossed the street image using silver embossing powder . I mounted my image on a piece of Rich Razzleberry DSP , stamped and mounted the sentiment also . I cased this idea from Irene Rathman , thank you for the inspiration Irene !
