Jenny Gropp - You are here!
Vicki Garrett - off this week

 I went with some bright summery colors on this new Roses Tin image. I'm loving this new font on the Thanks sentiment.... You'll be seeing it quite a bit coming up with the new release! The green flourish die cut is from the Heart Flourish Die, i just cut off the heart portion. The grey die cut piece in the background is the Fancy Cut Out Border Die.

I stamped on Curious Cryogen White with Memento Black ink. I couldn't resist adding piercing around the edge... I know I do it all the time!  I added a little YR30 in the background and chose bright colors for the image to match my papers.

 I used the Square Shaker Die as a frame... slicing it in the middle and then hiding my cuts with a band of ribbon. I colored my ribbon with YG13 to match the bright green in the image.

 I added dimension with foam tape between layers. Under the Flag Die I used some Dimensional Silicone to keep the "curve" in place on the Thanks sentiment. 

On the inside... more pieces from the Heart Flourish Die... again minus the heart. Finished card size is 4 3/4" x 5 3/4". 


  1. Oh wow this is just stunning colouring. Just adore the beautiful layers and the green and orange is very striking.
