Hello Spring and Enjoy The Now

Hi, it's Katrina here.  I am one of the new design team members for WorldWin and I am so excited to share my projects today with you.

My first project is a shaped card made with the Petallics collection.  The first time I used the Petallics cardstock I fell in love with it.  The sheen and just the elegance of it made me swoon!

I love how the Gold Ore and Petal Pink colors go together.  I decided to emboss  the flower layers and leave the leaves just as they were.  I wanted my flower to stand out more than the leaves.  Spring Larch is a great soft green color.

I used the Autumn Hay color for my card base.  
The top layer is the Beargrass color that I embossed. 

Next up, I have a layout using the Colormates cardstock.  Both the Petallics and the Colormates cut wonderfully in any die cutting machine.  I happened to used my Cameo for both these projects.

I used the Medium Coffee Brown, which is a great kraft color, for my background.  Then I used White for my center strip and to stamp on.

I love how the Colormates cardstock stamps also.  I used a chalk ink to stamp.  The chalk ink gave more of a distressed look, which is what I was going for.

Here you can see how cleanly the Colormates cut in my Cameo.  I just layered some pattern paper behind my openings to break it up some. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  I can't wait to share more projects and inspiration here on the blog for you!
