Saying Hello…

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the theme “Saying Hello”.  The team created beautiful cards to inspire you DD_Hello– a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

I was inspired by the beautiful pink colours in the photo as well as the roses. I use a whimsical rose stamp as focal point on my card and also a small border stamp to frame the image. I did the colouring with my water-colour pencils to match the colours of the background. I created the background for the roses with shimmer powder, distress inks and a stencil. The roses are fuzzy cut and then lifted of the base card with mirror tape for dimension. I finished off with a sentiment die cut, die cut stems and a few glitter stones.

Challenges I entered:

I used a bold sentiment die cut to create a rustic card for this challenge. The sentiment is my focal point layered on an embossed piece of kraft paper. I stamped the old country roses and leaves (Gina K Designs stamp set) with several colors of distress inks and then fussy cut them. The roses were layered on the background with mirror tape for dimension. I finished of with a few gemstones.

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
