I belong to a Facebook group, Fully Visible, and I started up a sampler swap. Each month whoever wishes to join in we create sampler pieces, they then mail to me and then I redistribute them so each person is able to create a sampler. The first sampler is Painted Poppies being used. The card base is Poppy Parade, second layer any dsp or cardstock and then finally any elements you wish to use.
My first piece I created a shaker using the domes from the Christmas catalog. I used the Peaceful Poppies Elements to create my pieces.
This piece I also used vellum cardstock to soften the background and it is a simple piece.
This piece I left the flower and leaf plain so each person could watercolor their flower and leaf the way the wanted it to be. If you look closely you will see that they are embossed with clear embossing.
These beauties’ designed by Chris Schroder who is our Fully Visible Admin. These spell out Happiness. Now that is thinking out of the box! (the first says Hap but it is upside down, I did not realize it when I took the picture. Lol!) Chris use a multiple of items here. She used an embossing folder, heat embossing, stitched dies and gold pearls.
These next set of beauties are from Denise Will. She used punches, dies and blend markers to create her pieces. These are beautiful!
I forgot to take pictures of Pam’s but hers is the top right corner and bottom right corner on this sampler she created.
Here is Denise’s sampler.
Love how each of us created it our samplers and each one is unique. Chris Schroeder will create hers when she can. Due to Covid-19 lockdown nothing is going out of the USA except for essentials. When she does I will post an update on hers.
