Love, Cherish Adore Layout
Designer: Rhonda Van Ginkel



Epiphany Crafts Supplies:
Vintage Settings for Round 14 - Cabana
Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio - Round 14 (3)
Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio - Star 25 (3)



Other Supplies:
Kraft Cardstock by Bazzill
Cream Acrylic Paint - Delta
Smooch in Molasses, Lettuce and Cape Cod by ClearSnap

Techniques:
I base coated my Vintage Settings in Cabana with my Cream acrylic paint. I did two coats for nice coverage. I then used my Smooch to obtain the depth of color that I wanted. I used Molasses, Lettuce and Cape Cod for my Vintage Settings.

I love that this technique allows you so much control to obtain the perfect color match! You can rub a little of the Smooch off for a more vintage look too!

I then used my Smooch Spritzes on my Martha Stewart doily and it coordinated with this line just perfectly!

I used the die cut leaves as a mask for my cardstock, and misted over them with the Clearsnap Smooch Spritz. Later, I added more spritzing to the leaves and arranged them on the layout.

I painted a small pumpkin with acrylic paints, the same size as the Round Bubble Caps 25, and then free-hand cut a stem for the top of the pumpkin.

Freckles Layout
Designer: Kim Garner 


Epiphany Crafts Supplies:
Shape Studio Round 14, Round 14 Bubble Caps, Vintage Settings Cabana


Other Supplies:
Clearsnap Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink
Clearsnap Smooch Spray
Colorbox Pigment Stamp Pad


Designer Instructions:
I used Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink in Luminate and Shabby Pink to paint the EC Vintage Settings Cabana. I painted the settings and then set aside to dry; when I was ready to add the epoxies about 30 mins later they were completely dry. 

I also used the Smooch Spray on vintage book paper and punched in different designs to layer behind the EC Vintage Settings and Bubble Caps Clear Round 14.


I used the ColorBox Pigment Stamp Pad Razzleberry to stamp my title.
