Hello stampin' friends! Check out my new blog design? I LOVE it! Thanks Emily and Designer Blogs

So, It's Day 3 of June Teasers and today we are featuring the NEW Abstract Art, Paint Brushes Die-namics, Art Expression Text and the Peek-a-Boo Dots Die-namic.

I made three cards with the fabulous NEW Abstract Art Stamp set (SOOO much fun) and the NEW Bold Statements stamp set and I used the fabulous NEW Blueprints 4 and the NEW Paint Brushes Die-namics too.

Never mind a message in a bottle wouldn't love to get a message in a paint can!? I had this idea to make a bird's-eye view of some paint cans. So, I made the A2 card-base from MFT Replenishments Heavyweight Card Stock in Grapesicle and cut the Smooth White Card Stock with the large rectangle from the NEW Blueprints 4. On the Smooth White Card Stock, I stamped various splatters, splotches and swatches of "paint" with the NEW Grapesicle Premium Dye Ink and in Electric Red and Orange Fizz Premium Dye Ink.

 I used the Circle STAX 1 and 2 to make the large, gallon sized can of paint from metallic silver card stock and I used the stitched circle element from Blueprints 1 and a smaller Circle STAX Die-namics nested in the center to cut out the rim of the pint sized paint cans.  I stamped the sentiment from the NEW Bold Statements set with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink on the Electric Red Heavyweight Card Stock that is the "paint" on the inside of the can. I added a paint brush to rest on the edge of the large paint can with the NEW Paint Brushes Die-namics. To get a more realistic look of a paint brush dipped in paint,  I cut 2 "bristles" with the Paint Brushes Die-namics; one from Black Licorice Heavyweight Card Stock and one from Electric Red Heavyweight Card Stock. Then I used the Wavy Edge Die-namics to cut the wavy edge of the Electric Red Bristles and adhered it over the Black Licorice card stock.

Here is the inside...I made a pint sized paint can and added another paintbrush and used the NEW Bold Statements Set again for the sentiment.

I really love how this card turned out with the NEW Insert It - Speech Bubble Frame. I used the actual Speech Bubble instead of the frame and stamped several sentiments from the NEW Bold Statements Stamp set with MFT Premium Dye Ink in the NEW Grapesicle, Orange Fizz and Red Hot Premium Dye Ink. I added a paintbrush with the NEW Paint Brushes Die-namics.

Here is the inside...more fun splotches, splatters and swatches of "paint" with the NEW Abstract Art and another sentiment from the NEW Bold Sentiments set.

This is my third card today and I really had fun with this one too. I created my own paint chip...SO cool! I cut the long rectangle from the NEW Blueprints 4 Die-namics from Smooth Card Stock. I used thin Eclipse tape to mask of the measured sections and then I used the back of a MFT border stamp (specifically the wood-grain stamp from the LJD Western Backgrounds Stamp set) and inked it to get a solid swatch of colour.  stamped the swatch of ink in a gradation of the red using MFT Premium Dye Ink in, Red Hot, Wild Cherry and Electric Red.  I used the LLD Journal It- Calendar Basics stamp set to add the actual serial # of each of the MFT Premium Dye ink pads and I stamped the sentiment from the LLD Document It -  Rock On Stamp set.

and this is the inside...I stamped another fun sentiment from the NEW Bold Statements Stamps set and a few more splotches and splatters of paint from the NEW Abstract Art set. I added another paint brush with the Paint Brushes Die-namics.
