RG: Planner Love

Hello Everyone, today I have a fun planner page and divider using the new Silver and Gold collection by Richard Garay. I also used some products by Fun Stampers journey. I love this Rose Gold planner from FSJ and the florals from the new collection made it so easy to create my pages.

Now I created this page for a week before Mother's day as that is when my daughters want to prepare some of the things for me.

Here are some steps to create this card:

to create the divider, I used watercolor cardstock. I then spritz some Cool Pool color splash onto it. Once dry, I sponged Beach Ball ink over it. 
I then took the stencil and applied some more of the blue ink through it.
I then spritz some silks onto this piece and let it dry.

I then die-cut the flowers and leafy vine and created my cluster. To finish, I added some enamel accents onto the flower centers.

I then created the vellum pocket and applied some ink onto it using the same blue color. 

For the pin, I simply adhered the die-cut flower and leaf. For the center I colored the mat white make amazing accent dot in teal and adhered it to the center.

For the other side of the pocket, I used this photo of my daughters with me from our recent trip to Colmar. I layered some patterned papers from the Origami love collection. The colors match perfectly with the theme :) I decorated using some more die-cut flowers.

To decorate the page, I first stamped the brush stroke from the Celebration collection and then stamped some washi stamps by FSJ. I then stamped and embossed the flowers onto vellum, colored them using the pencil colors.

I then die-cut the word loving, which come with the FSJ Amaze machine. I sponged some teal, mint and blue ink for the ombre effect.

I used the pretty Gel pens by FSJ to write my to do. Love the colors of these pens.

Here is the full list of supplies:

SugarPea Designs is hopping with My Sweet Petunia!

Hello and welcome to this special hop between SugarPea Designs and My Sweet Petunia (MISTI). I am so honored to be part of the SugarPea Design team AND I love MISTI and it really has changed  the way I stamp. It has made clear, crisp stamping so much easier and most important especially for me, that I don't have to waste my precious white cardstock :) I get it from US most of the time and shipping is a

For today, I chose to create this gorgeous plaid pattern background using the Striped background stamp...WHY??? Cos MISTI makes it so easy...and I also created this layered stamping vase directly onto the die-cut as I had MISTI help.

First I aligned my stripe background stamp against the 45 degree angle from the new Creative Corners for MISTI. I then closed the door of the MISTI to adhere the stamp. 

I then stamped the background using orange ink. I wanted kind of a distressed look so, I stamped this just once. If you want a solid stamping, you can stamp over the same again. I moved my cardstock to fill in the whole layer.

I then turned the layer 90 degrees and stamped the background again using Orange ink. Once this was done, I used the yellow ink, offset the card layer a bit and stamped onto the white layer once again for additional color.

I then die-cut the image die and stamped the multi step image using MISTI. I could stamp using 2 shades of ink for the leaves and flowers, as with MISTI, I knew I could stamp in the same position any number of times.

Here is a close-up for you
