EBE Summer of Stamping Hop: Designs by Brandi

 

Are you ready for another of our Summer of Stamping Hops?  This week, we'll be featuring three fabulous new sets designed for Ellen Hutson by Brandi Kincaid: 
First up:  Thank you for being a Friend - feel free to hum along!

 Simple Distress Oxide splats using acetate
The inside says it best! - one of many wonderful sentiments from You Should Know
 
 
I love it so much, I used again -
with these darling blooms from You Should Know:
 
 
This time stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossed.
Then some quick and easy water coloring with Altenew Watercolors
These EBE Essential Rectangles make wonky wonderful!
 


My final card for today uses Brandi's Mondo Pansy … I kept my Copic coloring simple but borrowed a free photo from the interweb for inspiration...

 
Not quite the right colors in my Copic stash, but I've made do.
 
  I did a bit of fussy-cutting on the right edge of blooms -
it was easy!
 
If you are a fan of beautiful sentiments,
you are going to adore Brandi's sets as much as I do!
 
Okay, my friends, it's time for me to say thank you for Hopping with us today!  You'll find the full list of stops on this Hop below - and details about a PRIZE!

Papercraft Boutique said...

Wonderful collection of cards using the new release, Michele! The watercolor splats go so well with the bold funky font of the sentiment (card 1). The angled thin frame is a wonderful twist of the design (card 2). Your Copic coloring of pansy is amazing, and the fussy-cutting of the right edge of blooms adds dimension and so much interest!!
