Love Wreath

Hi there,

it's time for a new CAS Challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More and I would like to show you this Clean and Simple Wreath card:

  • stamp the Neat & Tangled Floral Heart with Versamark onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • color the image with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens, Distress Markers and a damp watercolor brush
  • cut out part of the right side of the heart and add stitching to the panel using one of the My Favorite Things Homespun Stitch Lines
  • add some splatters with some olive green watered-down ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pen
  • ink up the edges of the panel with Distress Ink (Antique Linen)
  • cut out the CUTplorations love from smooth white cardstock and ink up the bottom of the sentiment with Distress Ink (Antique Linen) 
  • layer the panel on top of a stitched panel of grey cardstock before adhering all the layers to the cardbase

I hope you got inspired.

Happy Leaves

Hi there,

just a quick reminder of this month's TAGplorations Challenge - the Topic is All about Fall and the Optional Twist Red, Gold, Orange:

  • cut out a tag from white cardstock with the help of one of the CUTplorations Tags #1 dies and stamp some leaves from the STAMPlorations Trendy Leaves set with Altenew Crisp Ink (Autumn Blaze, Firebrick, Paper Bag)
  • apply some Distress Ink (Tea Dye) with a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • stamp the script from the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Elements set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder
  • add some gold embossing around the edges as well
  • stamp the first part of the sentiment from the STAMPlorations Sentiment Builders Happy set with Versafine (Vintage Sepia) onto a tea dyed strip and cut out the second part of the sentiment from the same set stamped with the same ink
  • dye a piece of seam binding with Distress Ink (Tea Dye) and thread it together with some natural twine through the hole of the tag

I can't wait to see your creations in the gallery.
