May Wacky Watercooler Hop

WELCOME to our May Retirement Hop, where we 
are featuring products that will only be available til June 2nd.
You've likely arrived here from Priscilla's blog.
Isn't she a wonderful artist!  If you missed her projects,
you can hop back to see them.

One of the products that I will miss most is the
Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  I love these leaves, 
and the fact that the die allows you to cut out metal,
fabric or paper.  In this sample the leaves were sponged with
Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar and Mossy Meadow.
They were then stamped with the I Love Lace background.
The Blooming with Kindness set has such nice sentiments,
that I will go back to long after this set retires.

This project uses the Labels Collection Framelits, with the coordinating Apothecary Art set that retired last year.
Again I Love Lace makes a dandy background for the 
focal layers.

This is my "happy card", that uses the Bokeh technique.
I used a Tangelo Twist marker to ink the Label Love
stamp, omitting the outline.  That was layered on to a
Starburst circle attached beside the Bokeh strip.

Now please hop on forward to Deborah's blog. You
don't want to miss her beautiful projects.  Or move
to the home site to pick up blogs that you might have missed.

World of Dreams Lovely Amazing You

This card was designed for a challenge, but then
replaced by another.  It features a watercolor technique
in which the Spring Flowers Textured Embossing Folder
is inked and then spritzed with water.  Whisper White
Card stock was placed in the folder and "squeezed" to 
lightly transfer the colored pattern to the card stock.
