Hello

Here I am with another card for the WPLUS9 Throwback Thursday Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:


On this card, I created my own spray ink with Distress Ink and water and used it on a woodgrain structured cardstock. Love the effect! I then die-cut the hello from cardstock and foam tape and adhered it to the card. Now I stamped and heat-embossed the peony and the leaves and colored them with Distress Inks + water. Then I cut them out and adhered them. Finally I added clear sequins.
Thanks for visiting!

Pear-fect

Hi everybody! I wanted to play with the WPLUS9 Throwback Thursday Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and made two cards. Here comes the first one:


I don't own any monogram sets, but I was inspired by Maureen's background techniques. Here I created a background with Distress Inks and Spray Inks on a watercolor panel. Then I stamped the sentiment and covered the panel with a matching piece of vellum to soften everything. I adhered the panels to my card and stamped the pears from Punny Produce: Pears onto a piece of watercolor paper, heat-embossed the image and colored it with Distress Inks mixed with water. Then I cut the image out and adhered it to the card with foam tape. Finally I added clear sequins.
Thank you for stopping by today! I'll be back tomorrow with the other card.

Winnie & Walter {inter}National Scrapbook Day With Pinkfresh Studio


Today, Winnie & Walter has teamed up with Pinkfresh Studio to celebrate {inter}National Scrapbook Day, hosting many fun challenges for you! I created samples for the challenge "create your own background". I wish I had the time to create a layout, but it is a card instead. Here comes my take:



I started with a white cardbase and inked the front with various Distress Inks and my ink blending tool. Then I trimmed a piece of patterned paper from the Pinkfresh Studio collection "Up in the Clouds" and die-cut the hello from it repeatedly. Now I adhered the panel to the card. I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock and adhered this, too. Finally I added sequins.
I didn't want to waste the die-cuts, so I created a second card with them:


Here I adhered the hellos to another panel of pp that I die-cut using Essentials: Katharine cutaways, then I layered it with another panel of pink pp and adhered it to the card. I tied twine to one of the cute wood labels and adhered the label to the card. Again, I finished the card off with sequins.
I hope you like my samples! Now it is time to hop to the Winnie & Walter blog to check out all the fun challenges and find even more on the Pinkfresh Studio blog! There are fun prizes to be won!

Happy creating and thanks for visiting!
