Painted Poppies

Everyday Cards

3 Challenges, ONE Card. What a Challenge!

A Little Note
It’s going to be hard to top the “Make Your Own Bunnies” Card and Video I posted yesterday, but I think you will be very pleased with this little card. I enjoyed yet another challenge of incorporating more than one challenge into one card. Here were the requirements of the 3 challenges:
*Blank Slate* #062
How easy was that? The sky really was the limit on this one!
*Sketch with any shape Tag* #SOC224

*Let it Grow* #GDP227
Projects that feature let it grow
So maybe this one wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be. I choose the Painted Poppies (all supplies listed below) and the Honey Bee Designer Series Paper.
(Free Sale-a-Bration item right now).
I stamped the Poppies in Versamark, then heat set with Gold Embossing Powder. I very loosely watercolored them with Merry Merlot & Rococo Rose with an Aquapainter. The sentiment “a little note” is from the January Paper Pumpkin “I’ll Be Yours” which I also embossed in gold. The Bee is from Butterfly Gala, which I embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I added the little dashes to create movement with a black marker. Then I placed the sentiment strip on the Honey Bee DSP, added some retired gold twine, then splattered some Rich Gold on the background. It came together pretty easily and anyone can recreate this quite easily. 
I hope it inspires you to play along in ANY of the challenges, or ALL of them! lol
Let me know if you play along, I would love to see what you create.
Thanks for visiting me on my Blog today =)
Happy Stampin’!

Reverse Embossing Tutorial

Parisian Beauty Stamps | Classy Elegant Card

I wanted to recreate the “Reverse Embossing” element I did in my last post. I love the effect it provides when done directly on paper and not altered in any way. If you saw my last video, you saw how I tried to keep the rough edges on the element I cut out, but it didn’t work out at all!

I’m so in love with this color pallet of Blushing Bride, Silver and Tuxedo Black. It has such a classy and elegant feel to it. I’m so pleased with how it turned out. You can see the entire process in the video below.
