Happy Mother's Day - Embossing

Hello!

A special card made for a special person!

Mother's Day around the corner, here is what I made for my mom :)



Isn't that pretty?

My mom loves the radiant blues and violets and how happier can I be when I find the exact shade I was looking for in an old wedding invitation?

So my panel and base are using the glittery blue invitation, I've stamped the flowers using Versamark ink and heat embossed using golden embossing powder. I mounted the panel to my base using foam tape. I then found a matching golden strip that was perfect for the sentiment. The sentiment is hand written and attached to the card using foam tape.



Linking the card to,
1. Ranganjali - April challenge - Embossing
2. Lulupu - Challenge #60 - Inspired by the blue shade on the right of the moodboard and the flowers from the valley

3. PCM Challenges - April

Please keep it a secret, it's gonna be a surprise for my mom ;)

Stencil + Distress ink - 2

Hello Everyone,

My final post for today :) Another monochromatic card made using stencil!


So after my first trial, I wanted to try once more to get the perfect blend!

I've used the same Heidi Swapp This Moment Wanderlust Stencil. Distressed it with multiple colors, misted with water and stamped on to the white cs. A good blend this time!

I then cut the stamped portion diagonally and attached to my lavendar base using foam tape. I've added a washi tape on the sides for some interest. The sentiment is stamped using distress ink and a few pearls added to complement it.

Stencil + Distress ink - 1

Hello Everyone,

Here is my 3rd card:)



This is my first try using a stencil and distress inks. I've used the Heidi Swapp This Moment Wanderlust Stencil. Distressed it with multiple colors, misted with water and stamped on to the white cs. Guess I should have added more ink and more mist!

I added the stamped image onto blue sheet, ran another blue strip through the middle and stamped my sentiment. I stamped the sweet treat onto white cs, colored using glitter pens. It is then punched out using the flower punch and added to blue circle cut out. This is attached to the base using foam tape, The panel is then attached to white cs to complete.

CAS Happy Birthday

Hello Everyone,

Back after a long time!

Here is the moodboard for Lulupu's Challenge 60.



I was inspired by the heart and the colors and patterns in the bottom left of the grid.

So here is my card,


A CAS card with my favourite color, blue! I stamped the hearts using the heart stamp from HOTF Small Stamps - Love & Hearts stamp set. Fussy cut the hearts, added to white cs. I then stamped the sentiment, ran a ribbon around, made a bow and attached to base blue cs using foam tape. That's it! :)
