Damask Divas Ivy Lane Blog Hop




 

Welcome to Damask Divas Ivy Lane Blog Hop.  My name is Traci Williams and I am an Independent Consultant with Close to my Heart.

If you came from Cydney Fowler's Cydney Fowler Creations, you are in the right place. If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

My projects feature 2 cards from the Ivy Lane Card Workshop on the Go kit.

One showcases the beautiful papers that come with the kit and the other features a background made from one of the stamps that are included with the card kit.

 
This first card uses the B&T paper as the main background drop for the card then using strips of cardstock and the 1/2" border trim from the B&T Paper gave it a margin to the left side.  The gold metallic strip is the Shimmer Trim (self-adhesive) that comes with the kit and the smaller embellishments (sequence) is another part of the kit.  The stamps were inked in Cocoa and Blush and I used light marker of Cotton Candy set to highlight around "Life" on stamped image. 


The second card showcases a softer side that was generated from Blush and Cocoa inks with the lace stamp in kit.  Then I stamped the 2 flower stamps to make the floral embellishment in the upper left corner and I cut a shape from the Cricut Artiste Collection for the sentiment.  The added embellishments are from the kit and the center swirls and bling are from the Rosewood Mini-Medley Accents.

Now to Hillary Harris's heart for handmade blog to see her wonderful Ivy Lane project!  If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog  to find the complete list of blog hop participants.
