Hang on tight – this is ANOTHER LONG post!!!
~ Sparkly Fireworks Background card ~
I began with this card to die cut a stitched rectangle (Lawn Fawn) out of some shiny silver paper. I then cut a piece of white card stock to fit just inside the stitched lines. Then I stamped the dandelion looking image from Bohemian Garden by Essentials by Ellen. I stamped with Versamark ink, embossed with silver powder and then stamped slightly off again with Brilliant Blue and Real Red (SU!). The hope was to create a background – a sky full of fireworks, hopefully you see it! I stamped the little stars from the Sugar Rush set by Winnie & Walter in the same colors. Using the same silver paper and a sentiment from the Sugar Rush set I used white embossing powder to make a banner and added that to my card.
~My Fireworks want to dazzle these challenges~
My fireworks display features Bohemian Garden from Essentials by Ellen AND sentiment and stars from the W & W Sugar Rush set. And I have built a background!
I chose this because – Fireworks of Red White, and Blue are a huge part of my Summer. We see Fireworks 3 or 4 different times during the season!!
My card is definitely Red, White, AND Blue!!!
For my fourth card I made this:
~ Transparent Birthday Card with Flowers ~
Began with a top folding A2 card of Cool Caribbean card stock (SU!) Added a horizontal stitched strip (MFT) from Certainly Celery card stock (SU!) that I cut a notch in. A circle was die cut (MFT) out of watercolor paper to stamp the flowers from Bohemian Garden set made by Essentials by Ellen. I used Only Orange, Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery ink (all SU!) to stamp my garden of flowers, then I blended the colors with a wet paintbrush. Splatters of Night of Navy ink (SU!) were added. Die cut the word Happy from Winnie & Walter out of Night of Navy card stock. The vellum piece was die cut using a stitched rectangle (Lawn Fawn). I stamped the word birthday from the Sugar Rush set (also W&W) with Versamark ink and embossed it with white powder. The sentiment was added using foam squares that I had trimmed down and for extra bling I added sequins with some micro glue dots!
~I am headed over with this card to play in these challenges~
This card featured Bohemian Garden set from Essentials by Ellen AND Happy Cutaway, Sugar Rush from Winnie & Walter. I used Vellum as the Transparent material on my card.
This sketch is how I designed my card and determined the placement of my sentiment & images!
These 5 colors are each featured on my floral card that matches the swimsuit!
My Summer-y Flower Garden grows in these lovely colors!
My card features flowers in soft orange and light blue – also my die cut and sentiment are from the sponsoring company this time – Winnie & Walter!
My fifth and final card made yesterday:
~ Just a Note Trifold Card ~
Taking a 4″ by 8″ piece of white card stock – I scored it at 2″ and 6″ – I then added some American Crafts gold glitter paper to each edge and then folded them together to get a tri-fold card. I mounted this part to a 4 1/4 square of black card stock. I stamped the 3 small hearts, large heart and the just a note sentiment from the Fancy Thanks set made by Essentials by Ellen. The star and banner came from the Winnie & Walter set called Sugar Rush. The colors I used were Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Cool Caribbean, Only Orange, and Marigold Morning. (All from Stampin’ Up!). The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
~I am happy to play with this fun card in these challenges~
I was drawn by the black and white, the orange colors, the pink colors, the aqua color, and the touches of gold.
I used Essentials by Ellen Fancy Thanks set AND Sugar Rush by Winnie & Walter for my card!
This made me think of making a tri-fold card. I used this sketch for the inspiration for the design of my card!
Whewwwww!!! That took me a long time to write – it probably took you a long time to read!!
