Seasonal Expressions 2 Blog Hop


Welcome to our Seasonal Expressions 2 New Product Blog Hop! We are showcasing many of the new products in our 2017 Seasonal Expressions 2 that was just released this month! If you have come here from Haley Dyer's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

We have 4 new cardmaking kits in the new SE2 catalog.   I love these kits because they are versatile enough to keep using over and over.  I like to purchase the kit and make at least one of each of the card designs as shown in the instruction guide but then I'll go out on my own and create something different with additional supplies I have on hand.  Today I'm sharing the Workshops Your Way Anniversary Cardmaking Kit and the extra cards I created using the All About the Gold Fundamentals.




This kit includes:
1 – exclusive workshop stamp set (B-size)
1 – sheet No Worries paper
2 – cardstock sheets (1 Sea Glass, 1 Smoothie)
1 – aqua shimmer trim (Z3086)
1 – No Worries sequins (Z3322)
12 – white card bases & envelopes










These are the card designs you can create using the instruction guide for this kit.


Here are 3 cards I created using my leftover kit contents and All About the Gold Fundamentals.  For my 1st card, I used a larger piece of the woodgrain paper and stamped the flowers right onto the paper.  I stamped the heart border across the bottom using Smoothie ink.  I stamped the hearts with Smoothie ink onto the Smoothie cardstock and cut them.




For my 2nd card I added a piece of All About the Gold Fundamentals. I stamped the flowers onto the Smoothie cardstock that is included in the kit and then I fussy cut them out.  I added some aqua shimmer trim and sequins for accents.


For my last card, I used the bold diagonal stripe piece from All About the Gold Fundamental. Before adhering to the card base I make small marks where to stamp my sentiment and then I stamped onto the card base before overlaying with the  All About the Gold Fundamental piece.  I stamped the small rose onto Smoothie cardstock and cut it out.  I stamped the banner onto the Sea Glass cardstock and trimmed it.  I added aqua shimmer trim to finish it off. 


NOTE:  When adhering these overlays, apply your adhesive where it will not show.  On the "Happy Anniversary" card, I applied it behind each gold dot.  On the "thanks" card, I applied the adhesive behind the gold stripes.

Live Beautifully - Smile

Here is Layout #3 that I created with our special Live Beautifully paper pack and stamp set!  This layout features the bold floral paper along with the 2 gold foil designed papers. I was also able to incorporate the diagonal gold zip strips into my layout.  I used Pomegranate Cardstock as my base pages.


I stamped the roses in pomegranate ink, and I also used gold embossing powder to heat emboss two of the roses. I stamped the word "smile" and sentiment in Desert Sand ink.  I have found that this color looks great with the gold embossing. I also used some of the gold glitter complements from the You & Me complements along with a few Gold Glitter Gems.
