I mentioned that I made 5 more cards yesterday – well, right now I am going to show you two of them!
I will pop back in later with a second post showing the remaining three!
~ Sparkly Floral Happy Birthday ~
My sparkly Happy Birthday card involved some Inlaid die cutting, embossing, and stenciling.
I started by stenciling my background using Night of Navy ink and the Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp. I die cut using Happy Cutaway from Winnie & Walter – cutting one from my background and one from American Crafts gold glitter paper. The flower was stamped in gold embossing powder and colored in with Calypso Coral ink (SU!) and a wet paintbrush. The set used was Bohemian Garden from Essentials by Ellen. And the word birthday also embossed in gold is from the Sugar Rush set by W & W. The doodles around the edges were done using a Night of Navy marker (SU!). I added sequins and a coral colored pearl for the flowers’ center!
~I am HAPPY to link this card up to the following challenges~
I used Bohemian Garden from Essentials by Ellen AND I have used a W&W set/die cut (Sugar Rush & Happy Cutaway)
I have done the row right down the middle – Gold, Stencil, Doodle.
I embossed in gold, I used a stencil for my background, and I doodled faux stitching on my panel.
There is a bright colored flower on here and on my card. I used the inlaid die cutting technique!
For my 5 items I used the color white, doodling, die cut, ink, and a flower!
For my second card I made
~ Happy to have you as a Friend ~
For this pink and brown card I used the Happy Cutaway from Winnie & Walter. Sponged it with Pink Pirouette ink (SU!). Stamped the hearts in the same ink and then stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink (SU!). The sentiment and the hearts are from an Essentials by Ellen stamp set called Fancy Thanks. The side border is a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock embossed with a scalloped border.
~I am HAPPY to link this card up to these challenges~
I have paired up the W & W cutaway With the Fancy Thanks set from Essentials by Ellen. My sentiment is the main feature on my card.
My card is made up of Pirouette Pink and Chocolate Chip colors – the brown photographed a little dark but it is brown!
This is Anything!!
