Good morning and happy Wednesday! Keeway here today 🙂 .. I’m finally here to share with you my debut post! It was definitely tough to follow the talented Eunji, Vera, and Emily, but as last on board I hope not to dissapoint!
Today I have two cards to share with you –each with a little different flavor. The first card I have for you is one featuring one of The Ton’s beautiful flower stamps, Mini Wild Florals. These flowers are so fun to stamp, and absolutely perfect for layering and arranging into beautiful shapes.
I chose to stamp leaves with turquoise green and grass green colors, arranging them around the card in random fashion. I then heat embossed the outline of the flowers with silver embossing powder on a separate piece of watercolor paper, and colored them in with zig clean color brushes. I fussy cut them out so that I can layer them on top of the leaves in a circular fashion.
I then die cut 2 circles, a larger circle on vellum, and a smaller circle on a light grey cardstock, and embossed the “You’re amazing” sentiment from Friggin Fablous stamp set. I added a few more flowers around the sentiment and lastly glued on some 6mm Fairy Pink Sparkling Clear Sequins, to add a bit of light sparkle without overpowering the beautiful flowers.
I added the finished piece to a light pink card stock and intentionally allowed for a small pink border to complete the card. The bright colored flowers just makes me happy!
The next card I have for you is one featuring the Panda Can’t Even. When I saw this stamp set I knew I just had to do something cute!
I used the stars in the Friggin Fabulous set to create the red star sunglasses for the panda, which is embossed in red glitter embossing powder. I used the same powder for the ‘fabulous’ sentiment from the Friggin Fabulous set and used a label maker for the ‘you’re’ to add a little balance to the card. I also used the remaining pandas and stars from the Panda Can’t Even set to create my own background on the red cardstock.
I die cut a star out of the red background I made to create the shaker portion of the card. I used the Flamenco Sunset Couture Mix for the sequins, with its gorgeous gold, red, yellow, and little black stars. I absolutely love the colors! Putting it all together, you have a fun and fabulous shaker card!
I hope you enjoyed today’s cards and thank you for dropping by!
