happy Anniversary card

To make this card, I started with sponging the white card panel with Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon and Abandoned Coral distress inks. Then I die cut a white panel using The Garden die from penny Black  which I layered on the sponged card panel using foam adhesive. I love the colours peeking out of the die cut. This panel is adhered to card front.

The sentiment is from Penny Black You and Me stamp set which I white heat embossed on the black cardstock and adhered on the card front with bunched up silver thread. Quick and simple card but the colours and contrast makes a huge impact.

Hello Gorgeous!

A quick post today. I made this card in twenty minutes this morning before going to IKEA. My friend wanted to come along but she has some work to finish first. So in that time, I decide to make a card for Ellen Hutson's Pin Sights Challenge. Here is the Pin Sights Inspiration.


This is my card for the challenge.

Hello Gorgeous card!

I started with spattering my card base with navy Mr. Huey and left it to dry. To make my focal point, I sponged a scrap piece of white textured card stock with Fired Brick and Ripe Persimmon distress inks. Then sprayed with some Wplus9 shimmer. Once dry, I die cut all the elements using Wild Garden die set from Essentials by Ellen. Then clustered and glued the flowers and leaves on the card front.

For sentiment, I red heat embossed the "Hello Gorgeous" from Hello Gorgeous stamp set from Essentials By Ellen on a navy cardstock. I adhered this using foam adhesives. Finally embellished with Pretty Pink Posh's Cobalt and Raspberry sequins along with white rhinestones.

One more no line colouring card!

Afternoon everyone!

I have another card to share using Penny Black Way Cool stamp set.

Happy BIrthday boy card

This is the second boy image from Way Cool stamp set I shared yesterday. Here it is again for you.

way cool! picture

I had used the top left image on my card I shared yesterday. In this card, I have used the boy with the ball in his hand. I stamped with Memento Peanut Brittle ink and copic coloured making the line invisible. Again, I had coloured this image some time ago and did not get a chance to make a card until today. I added pattern papers to colour coordinate with the boy's outfit. And embellished with enamel dots.
