Anniversary Celebration

A co-worker of mine needed an anniversary card for her in-laws and she asked me to make a card for her.  This is what I made.  The Very Vanilla was first die cut and then I stamped the flourish and the watermark dots with Sahara Sand Ink.  I then ran it through the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder and sponged the edge with Crumb Cake Ink.  To give the two Full Hearts a little more definition, I sponged them in Midnight Muse Ink.  I adhered the female heart to the Very Vanilla and popped the male heart up on dimensionals.  I can't wait to hear how they liked their card!

Thanks for stopping by :-)

Bordering Beautiful Birthday

I posted a card on Saturday using this same technique.  Click Here to see that post.
I wanted to see what it would look like using Pretty in Pink card stock.  First emboss image with white embossing powder and heat set.  Then I used a light application of Pretty in Pink Classic Ink mixed with water and then added some Melon Mambo.  Be very careful with the amount of water that you use or the paper will pill.  Gumball Green for the leaves and the two small flowers with Daffodil Delight.  Added some Basic Pearls in the centers of the flowers.
I really love the look of the flowers.  Next I think I'll try Wisteria Wonder card stock with Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant!

Birthday Flowers

I saw this technique on Heather Telford's Blog and just had to try it. 
 Stampin' Up! style of course ;-)  

Embossed the Bordering on Romance flowers in white on Daffodil Delight card stock.  Heather used water color pencils on her card, I used water and SU Classic Ink instead.  First I did a light wash of Pumpkin Pie all over the petal and then added a bit more for some shading.  Be very careful, too much water will make the card stock pill!  Did the same with the Gumball Green on the leaves.  Added some Dazzling Details to the center of the flowers for some sparkle.  I really like this technique, I think I might try a pink background next!

Thinking of Spring

I am so ready for Spring!  Thought I would play along with the MOJO Monday Sketch this week and SUO Challenge #67 Spring is in the Air.
I already had the bird scene water colored so I thought I would add it in.  I wanted something unique for the sentiment, decided to use the Secret Garden Framelit and cut out a flower to stamp it on.  It was a little boring all by itself so I added the scallop circle and some leaves.  I like the way it turned out.  The Oval Scallop was made with the Ovals Collection Framelits, sponged with some Raspberry Ripple and Embossed with Perfect Polka Dots Folder.  Added a little bling to the flowers with some Dazzling Details.
