Love You Always and Have a Lovely Day

Good Morning! Emily here with two cards that I made using lovely goodies from the Your Memories Here Store!

The first card I have was made using all Prima Marketing products with a little bit of Webster's Pages. The papers and flower are both by Prima and the gem trim is by Websters Pages. 

Prima Paper: Flirty Little Secret - Memoirs
Prima Flower: Coventry Rose Printery
Gems: Websters Pages 

I absolutely love this patterned paper and how it already looks like it is stamped on, so instead of adding any more papers to it, I decided to keep it simple. I used white gesso around the edges of the patterned paper and in a spot towards the bottom so that I could stamp my sentiment on it. I used a dry brush to apply the gesso. 

I didn't have the exact color I wanted for the sentiment, so I applied a midnight blue color to my stamp with an evergreen color applied over that. It was the first time I tried this technique, so I tested it out several times until I got it the way I wanted it to look. :) This is a good reason to always have scrap papers around. 

For my second card, I decided I would use some of my Websters Pages goodies I have, which can also be purchased from the store. I loved the kite paper so much, I decided to create a larger version of the kites to hold my sentiment. 
Websters Pages: Petite papers - Sunday Picnic & Everyday Poetry
Websters Pages Trim: Let's Celebrate Trim

This card was super easy to make, and a lot of fun. There are so many fun papers out there that you can draw inspiration from for your projects. This was one of those cases. I loved the kites, so I made a larger one for the same card I used the kite paper on. And it worked out well. 

Below are two more views of the kite card...
