Liquid applique pairs nicely with our new floral sets

I remember using liquid applique years ago on my holiday cards. The white applique looks like snow and in Wisconsin that's a likely winter scene! At Raisin Boat we not only offer liquid applique in white, but in yellow, hot pink, brown, blue, red, orange, green and more! We sell it in all these fantastic colors because liquid applique isn't just for snow anymore! From our product page link (above) click on any color to see how we've used it with some of our favorite Raisin Boat sets.

If you visit our Idea Gallery at www.RaisinBoat.com, you will see how we've used liquid applique on cinnamon rolls, ATVs, cupcakes, banana splits.... It also works great with our new floral sets, too. Inspired by a card that Kim made me for my birthday a week ago, I decided to give applique a try on a couple of my own cards, too. Take a look...

Our first card is the one that Kim made for me using Raisin Boat set, Hydrangea Bouquet. She used liquid applique in white and added a drop to each petal. Once heated, the applique puffed out to make a lovely and very dimensional hydrangea. For all the materials used for this card, visit the card in our idea gallery. Another idea - use our applique in violet and blue for a varied hydrangea blossom.



Inspired by Kim's card, I used liquid applique in yellow to make the daisy center on the next card. Wondering where this gerber daisy came from? It's actually in a set called, "Oops a Daisy" that we are releasing tomorrow! (It's a super cute new stamp set!) Click here for a list of products used on this card.


I also used black liquid applique to make the fuzzy poppy centers in the next card using Blissful Blossoms (on sale through today at 20% off). Just a touch of applique and you get very interesting and dimensional flowers. I love this product and love having it in all the fun colors, too. Remember, you have to use a heat gun to heat the product. A hair dryer will not work because it will not get hot enough to heat-set the applique.

Stock up on all of the colors of applique, then add it to your next projects. You'll love the result! Smiles, Bobbi
