Hello!! Hope your week is off to a good start! My boys are back in school and probably not happy about it, lol!! As my blog post title indicates I have a couple of cards to share. First up is one for the April Reverse Confetti Sketch For You To Try. I wanted to make this an Easter card, but I don't have the RC set Easter Blessings so I used a sentiment from Walk by Faith instead. The papers I used are from the Bo Bunny Believe line. I got some of the papers in a Simon Says Stamp card kit last year and I really like them. I got a little funky with this card, but I really like it. The cross is from Reverse Confetti and I die cut it from woodgrain cardstock. The little flower in the center is part of the die set and was cut from a scrap of the Believe papers. I added a little yellow enamel dot to the center. I distressed the edges of all the papers before layering everything up. The sentiment was heat embossed in black on vellum and then adhered to the cross.
Supplies: Cardstock: light blue, white, white woodgrain; Patterned paper: Bo Bunny; Stamps: My Favorite Things and Reverse Confetti; Dies: My Favorite Things, Reverse Confetti, Spellinders and AJVD; Inks: My Favorite Things, PaperTrey Ink, VersaMark; Embossing powder: Filigree black; Nuvo Glitter drops
The next card is for two challenges: Color Throwdown and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to make a birthday card. I started by trimming down some older My Mind's Eye green patterned paper into an angled piece and adhering it directly to a light blue cardstock base. The rectangles were die cut from woodgrain cardstock using the MFT Inside Out Stitched Rounded Rectangles and adhered to the card base. I stamped the butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies in MFT Daffodil ink and then layered the red (PTI Pure Poppy) on top with the matching detail stamp. I die cut the butterfly with the matching die and then added Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard to the body and little dots to the wings. Once that was dry I adhered it to the rectangle. The sentiment (from AJVD) was embossed in black on vellum, trimmed down and adhered.
Wishing you a wonderful day...
