Palma Curve Scene
by Jeanne Jachna

Palma-Curve-One
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're having a great day!  It's cloudy with scattered showers throughout the day here in the Chicago area, but there's no reason we can't make our own sunshine right?  Today I'm playing with the Palma Curve die.   This is really a unique set of two dies.  I used them to create this dreamy card! 
Palma-Curve
I started by cutting the die and using the clean half oval shape as a mask for inking.  I blended distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron, and Crushed Olive.  
Palma-Curve-Five
Don't worry if you get some "hard lines" from the blender on the outer edges - those will be covered up later.  You just need enough ink to complete the oval shape.  I brought the blending tool in from all directions so I covered more of the paper than I needed to.  When you're happy with the blending you can add a splash of water or white ink like I did.  If you want to leave it "as is" that's fine too. 
Palma-Curve-Three
I cut the two dies apart and cut the piece with the foliage from gold glitter paper.  I cut the smooth oval frame from white card stock.  Next I adhered them together to make it easier to trim them at the same time to fit the card base. 
Palma-Curve-Two
I added a simple Scribble Hello sentiment cut from white and placed it in the bottom corner.  The white on white is subtle so the focus stays on all that gold up top.

Palma-Curve-Four
The Posing Faerie looks right at home in this setting!  A few Butterfly Sprinkles in gold complete the scene.  They're just the right size and in proportion with the faerie.  I have them flying out of the scene at the top.
Palma-Curve-Seven
This die has lots of possibilities, you can place it horizontally or vertically, you can use the solid oval shape to create a complete oval by cutting it twice.   You can change up the colors and add more dimension by popping up each layer with adhesive foam tape.  The only limit is your own imagination! 
Palma-Curve-Six
Here's a few more ways you can cut this die.
IMG_3257
First cut the floral edge, then place the oval die so it meets the cut lines of the floral edge.  When it's cut out it will look like this.
Palma-Curve-Nine
You can also cut the two die side by side to create this look.
Palma-Curve-Ten
If you love this style die you should check out the Schaefer Curve too - it's really similar.  Here's pictures of both side by side for a comparison.

Make A Wish Faeries!
by Jeanne Jachna

 Make-A-Wish-Four

I hope you're enjoying our blog blitz!  I'm so excited to share more new dies with you today!   There's serious magic afoot with the new trio of Faeries!
Make-A-Wish
I started with a watercolor background of purple and pink.  Start with the most concentrated paint toward the bottom and top and then just add water to make the colors bleed together and lighten in the center.   A splash of white transforms the flat wash into a dimensional background.
Make-A-Wish-Six
Want to meet the ladies one at a time?  This is the Posing Faerie.  Her arms are posed so you can place her around a flower, a star or even a few Butterfly Sprinkles.
Make-A-Wish-Five
This is the Dancing Faerie.  The wing is separate from the body so you can cut it from sparkly paper or add some vellum or glitter behind.  I kept this one simple so the colorful background could fill the openings in the wings. 
Make-A-Wish-Three
And this is the Thoughtful Faerie!  She's enjoying all the wonder Mother Nature has to offer.
Make-A-Wish-Two
I double cut the Make A Wish sentiment from gold foil, and gold glitter paper.  It adds extra sparkle and helps define the letters.
Make-A-Wish-One
This is the perfect card for the dreamer in your life! 

Now for the part you've been waiting for!  Leave me a comment by January 25 for a chance to win YOUR CHOICE of ONE of these beautiful faeries!  Winners will be announced on January 28!
