Hi and thanks for stopping by today! I have been working on a scrapbook for one of daughters and playing with lot of Prima Products. When I went to put everything away and looked at all the pretty scraps on my desk and decided to make a card inspired by the July Prima Product Picks Challenge.
Happy Friday! I am looking forward to the weekend! Tomorrow I am going for the final day of wedding dress shopping for my daughter Lisa. By tomorrow afternoon we will have said YES to the dress!
I do have a card to share today. I am playing along with the Picture Perfect challenge over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog.
I starting by stamping a variety of flowers from the Paper SmoochesBotanicals 3 Stamp Set and then cut them out with the coordinating Botanicals 3 Icons Dies. I added a little shading to the flowers with Prisma Colored Pencils and added rhinestones to the centers.
I since I can't get enough of my Kuretake Gamsai Tami Watercolor Paints I decided to watercolor the pretty flowers and leaves. I stamped them in white ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. Once the paint had dried I die cut the flowers and leaves with the coordinating Peonies Elle-ments.
I used the vase die in the Peonies Elle-ments to cut the shape directly into the card stock. I added acetate behind the card stock and then dropped in some clear Pretty Pink Posh Sequins to add some sparkle. The sentiment is included in the Peonies Clear Stamps Set, stamped Delicate Gold Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder on vellum.
Hi and thanks for stopping by today! I have a card to share using my new stamp set from Paper Smooches, Best Buds. This is such I cute stamp set! I am playing along with the Paper Smooches SPARKS July Anything Goes (wk1) challenge.
I colored the stamped image with Copic Markers, added some shading and covered the glass jar with a light coat of Wink of Stella in Clear.
In the corner I stamped a couple of buds from the Best Buds Stamp Set and a few dots of liquid pearls. The sentiment is also included in the stamp set.
To celebrate the Curtain Call's third anniversary, the Celebrate challenge will run the entire month of July! The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!
And here's my take on the challenge!
You can never have too many birthday cards in your stash! I created this one with the Die-namics Balloon STAX. I die cut the center of the largest ballon to create a shaker. I matted the shaker with black card stock stamped with the Happy Birthday Background Stamp, stamping in Gold Delicata Ink and embossing with gold embossing powder. The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh and I added a piece of acetate between the layers.
The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Salutations Stamp Set and the flowers are from Maya Road. The patterned paper is from the Fancy Pants Office Suite 6 x 6 Paper Pad.
