Welcome to the Royal Blog Tour!

Welcome to my Royal Castle!!  I’m so glad you could join us!  My post for the tour will feature the fabulous Flower Fancy stamp set!  P4220027
First up, flowers!  They were hand painted with my aqua-painter on sahara sand card stock, embellished further with Stampin’ Write Markers, and then two layers of clear embossing powder applied.  Once embossed, the colors really muted… like a magical surprise!  I love the texture added by the new Square Lattice Embossing Folder don’t you? Colors shown:  Rich Razzleberry and Sahara Sand.
P4220028
Here are the same flowers adorning a scrapbook page in Rich Razzleberry, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White, Barely Banana, and Bermuda Bay.  I had a little help from the Wonderful You stamp set too!
P4220023
A different twist… in Soft Suede, Sage Shadow, Ruby Red, and Kraft.  The large heart punch adorned with the Flower Fancy Leaves which have also been hand painted and embossed.  The embossed crown image is from the Extreme Elements Stamp Set.
P4220024
Combining sets, and adding a sneak peek with elements of style too.  This time I used glassy glaze embossing enamel over the focal image.  The tiny flowers were cut out, embossed and then melted into the focal image.  Isn’t the butterfly fun?
P4220025
Couldn’t resist adding a little hodepodge hardware too… I’m going to miss mellow moss and barely banana card stock :)
P4220004ebtcbyr
Last of all, blog candy!!  All the images show in this photo are part of the Ronald MacDonald Stamp set found on the inside (back) cover of the Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalog!  Each time this stamp set is purchased, Stampin’ Up! donates $2.00 to the  Ronald MacDonald House.  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post.. and you’ll be entered in a drawing to win the cards AND the stamp set!


Hugs!

Beautiful projects Sharon...worthy of an Artisan Award. I'll be back to study them more fully. The glass like flowers really catch the eye and all the layers of texture add a lot to the designs as well. The rest of the royal crew have a bit to live up to now!

Thanks for offering such lovely blog candy as well. I'm crossing my fingers and toes for this one.


Hugs to you your royal highness - Jean
