Leaves And Flowers!

Hi everyone! A very leafy card to share today for the new Color Throwdown Challenge #431! The inspiration picture shows lots of succulents but I chose to feature my greens with gorgeous tropical leaves!

My daughter recently showed me a wedding invitation she was designing for a couple and I was immediately inspired to create a card from that design! I die cut the tropical leaves from two different shades of green and then stamped in the images for more detail. After they were layered over a kraft background, I added in some Crystal Stickles for pretty shine!

I topped off the leaves with a circle die, adding in the plum color of the challenge. The sentiment is also stamped in plum. I added in a few small plum flowers and gave them some sparkly gold centers (!). I embellished the inside of the card too but left it blank so I can use it for either a birthday or perhaps a Thank You!

It's The Little Things!

Hi everyone! I have a pretty one-layer card to share today, almost totally created with embossing powders! I added in a few polka dots but all of the images and sentiment are heat embossed in bright colors!

To make the colors really pop, I started with a black background and stamped my images in Versamark Ink. I stamped the pink blooms and sentiment first, followed by the green leaves and lastly the small red flowers. I heat embossed the images in between so the colors wouldn't mix.

Once all of the embossing was done, I felt like the card needed a little something more so I added in tiny white polka dots with a white Signo gel pen. They add just the right accent!  I also topped the background with some pink and black twine along with a bow!

Perfect Flower!

Hi everyone!  A beautiful CAS card today for the new Color Throwdown Challenge #430. The color combo in the challenge picture is gorgeous and I used gold in place of the light brown or kraft!

This beautiful flower from Concord & 9th is the focal point of the card and I stamped it in two shades of turquoise. I just love the shadowing effect of this stamp set! I added in green for the stem and a few gold pearl accents for dimension!

This sweet sentiment was stamped in dark brown and I added in a few more accents of green, brown and gold with some shiny sequins and gems! The card front is mounted on a sage green base and looks absolutely stunning!

Bazzil Parakeet card stock

Kind Hearted Friend!

Hi everyone! I love Polka Dots! They are a great design element and can be fun, romantic and even classy! I used my love for  big polka dots on this soft, yet colorful card!

I've been wanting to use the Concord & 9th card frame for a while now and was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to use and by the awesome results! Large word sentiments always look great on cards and this one is no exception.  I started with a white card base and added in large, light green polka dots. For some pizazz and a little shine, I added  embossed images over the dots in a soft pearl white.

The 'kind' frame was die cut out of coordinating soft green card stock and layered over the background. The circle flowers mimic the polka dot design and add a sweet pop of color to this clean and simple card. The finishing touches were some accents in black and some sparkly gems!
