Lots of goodness from Jenn Biederman

Morning, Jenn here, and today I am sharing a traditional layout and a tag using the Sunny Skies and Wanderlust set. I think Sunny Skies is such a happy set and am really drawn to the hot air balloon. I apologize for the darker has been non-stop clouds and rain around here for a week.


I stitched a 3x4 photo pocket on the background prior to adding my layers and photos. This allowed me to tuck a journal card inside behind them.


I enhanced the stamped balloons by shading them using PrismaColor colored pencils and then blending the colors with oil thinner. I also added shine to the balloons with Diamond Stickles.


I made use of the circles in the Sunny Skies set that ME provided various sizes/styles of them. Wondering where the pull tab on the journaling card came from? It's the "Just Go Find Your Bliss" circle/arrow stamp from the Wanderlust set. I punched it out with my 1" circle punch. Fun!


My next project is a tag using the same Sunny Skies set. I clear embossed the clouds on the background and then filled in with distress ink. The balloon was shaded in the same way as I mentioned in the layout above.


A closeup to show the shine of the embossed clouds...


The hot air balloon opens up so that a secret message can be written inside.


I hope you enjoyed today's samples using the newest stamp sets from ME! Catch you later!
