Casual Fridays Celebration CFC173

Today I made my card to enter into the Casual Friday's challenge celebrating 6 years. I stamped 6 Ranunculus. They are such a pretty flower. All the details for the challenge can be checked out HERE  I used a Stampendous stamp for the flowers and Unity sentiment. I love the look of watercolor but just never get to trying it so this is one of my first of attempts. I watercolored the flowers with Zig clean color markers. Added a bit of glossy accents. Pretty simple and definitely going to try it again.

Background Wash


This is my entry into the Papertrey Ink MIM challenge. Check for all the details on the challenge check HERE I started this card on Monday and could finally come up with a finish today!! I decided to go with a shaker card. My colorwash looks more blendy than I'd like it to be but hopefully next time I'll get it to work to my liking. I love color washing but never quite get the look I'm going for. I used PTI Dot Spot stamps and Enjoy the Ride for the sentiment and Pretty Posies by Casual Fridays. I sprayed every thing with a glitter mist and used Ranger Gold and Wow silver pearl embossing powder. Die cut is by Spellbinders.

This also works for their challenge at Celebrating Past and Present  The stamps I used are from PTI sets Paper Tray and Out on a Limb and paper is Black and White Basics.

With Love and Music to my Ears

For details on this card challenge go to the Casual Friday Blog (Music to my Ears theme) and Simon Says Stamp (Color of Love theme) For my card I used the Casual Fridays treble clef die. I cut the pink little hearts from the bottom of the same die. For the gold lettering I used my Minc machine with gold foil. I added a bit of wink of STella pen. Hard to see and a bit difficult to photograph with all the shine. Very simple card but the gold really packs a punch!!

Make it Monday Butterfly Card

This week the challenge is to work with patterned paper. Check out the details HERE I used PTI papers, Hawaiian Shores, Chocolate remix for the background and Tea leaves for the butterflies. the word is cutout with Stamplorations die and butterflies with a Sizzix die. I gold embossed the edges.
