On The Bright Side

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the happy theme of “Neons / Brights”. Just look at the cheerful mood board – it will surely help you to get started. The team have created a bunch of bright cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. We have also a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

My card is a little bit different from what you usually see on my blog. Yes, I tried again to make a clean and simple card. It was not easy for me but I managed to put something together that in a way matches the mood board! I swiped five different distress inks on white card-stock, cut the hearts with a Memory Box die and then layered the colored hearts on a white panel. Some of the hearts as well as the top panel were lifted with mirror tape from the base card for dimension. I added tiny gemstones for sparkle and a red bow (because my card needs a bit of shabbiness!). I finished off with a die-cut sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

The sentiment in bright red

The colorful waterfall of hearts

A peep at the inside

Project details.

Red and white card-stock — Memory Box die “Heart waterfall” (No. 99079) — Crealies Text Dies (CLTD 106) — Tim Holtz distress inks (Peacock feathers, Candied apple, Mustard seed, Mowed lawn, Spiced marmalade) — Tiny gemstones — Hug Snug seam binding for bow.

Thank you for visiting today! I hope you like this CAS creation. If you do, please leave a comment – I love reading them. Have a great day and happy crafting.

Regards,

Amelia

    You do clean and simple beautifully, Amelia! It must have taken some time to do all those hearts, but the overall effect is fantastic! I just love the blend of colors against the plentiful white space. I still love layers and designer paper and all that, but more and more I’m drawn to CAS.

    Love the beautiful, cascading hearts, the colors are so rich and bright, popping them up like that down the panel really adds awesome texture, the placement of your bow is a beautiful detail.
    Thank you for playing along with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, hope you join us again next time.
