New Goodies

Hi everyone ~ I'm signed up for the 'True Scrap' class which runs all day tomorrow, so I wanted to get this posted and get my craft room cleaned up :) Is anyone else taking this class?

A sweet friend of mine recently gifted me this brand new MFT Lily die (swoon), so I was thrilled to find out that this week’s challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More is to create a Clean and Simple card (now that I added all those splatters, I sure hope this card is considered CAS). 
  



Also, I recently bought Heidi Swapp Color Shine in coral, so I decided to use this color for my inspiration, and create a monochromatic card. I started by embossing the Mega Mat Stack to create a frame, then die cut the lily twice in white cardstock, colored everything with Copics and spritzed with Mr. Huey’s Color Mist (also new). I tapped off some of the coral color shine onto the card for a splattered effect, arranged everything, popped up the flowers and stamped the sentiment and embossed it with another new goodie - Pumice Stone embossing powder, which by the way is sparkly! I added my new Mama Elephant sequin die cuts (also embossed with Pumice Stone), and my card was finished! 

The embossed ‘Mega Mat Stack’ is difficult to see, so here’s a close-up:

I can't wait to hear what people thought of that class. It was on my want to do list but I am such a fail at classes.

Beautiful Card Barb, I have so been interested in that particular die. You made a lovely card, and that yellow orange shade is just perfect. Reminds me of a tiger lily. Hope you enjoyed your class.
