Love Notes Sketch Copper Inspired

I recently discovered two amazing challenges that I’m excited to participate in for the first time! I’ve used pieces from the January 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit to create this fun alternate Valentines Day Card. It has beautiful copper accents on a fun Flirty Flamingo water-colored and embossed background.

The first portion of this card was inspired by The Paper Players’ Clean & Simple Challenge: Love Notes #PP377 I loved all the different challenge cards the other crafters came up with and am excited to submit my first challenge card with them. Learn more by clicking the image below.

I’m also excited to submit my first challenge with the Global Design Project. They had a sketch challenge this week, #GDP122 I really liked this sketch, and knew I wanted to incorporate my Paper Pumpkin pieces with this. Learn more about their challenges by clicking on the image below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to see my project! I hope you enjoyed, and be sure to watch my coordinating video tutorial to see how mine came together.

Colorful Seasons Just Breathe Card

I had a hard time finding my mojo this morning, but it wasn’t lost for long after finding some inspiration on Pinterest to make this fun card! I used the Colorful Seasons Bundle and the fun, bright Daffodil Delight card stock for this scalloped beauty. I really love this bundle. Some of my favorite cards made with this set are my Baby Wipe Technique Card and my Clean & Quick Cards Series 5.

I love how easy it is to coordinate projects with so many wonderful tools at our fingertips! Stampin’ Up! makes it so nice to coordinate die cuts with sentiments. I find myself reaching for the Layering Ovals and Layering Circles a lot lately!

The bright yellow really perked up my mojo for it being such a dreary morning here in Oregon. And of course the Rhinestones make any card a little more perky! I just love adding bling to my cards! What is your favorite “blingy” accent to add to your handmade projects?

In The Trees Black Emboss Technique

Have you ever had a project that you wanted to use black embossing powder on but couldn’t find any? Good news, you can emboss in black without having to use black embossing powder! Today’s project features a set from the Occasions catalog that launched this month, In The Trees. I really love this set, and knew right away I wanted to emboss the tree before coloring it. I love how the embossing powder adds texture and shimmer to this project.

The colors I used for the leaves are Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist. I think the contrast between the light and dark leaves is beautiful. The Soft Suede tree trunk adds a nice, natural element.

I also used the Aqua Painter with Soft Sky for the shadow under my tree. I love the watercolor effect this gives my card, but a Blender Pen would work really well, too.

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 7 – Weather Together

The next card in my Clean & Quick Cards Series is this easy, white embossed present card with a simple sentiment. This card is VERY clean with just a few elements that really make it stand out.

With minimal supplies this card could be replicated with a variety of stamp sets and materials. Using this format, you could make a card for just about any reason in a matter of minutes!

I’m a huge fan of white embossing on a darker colored base, and the Crumb Cake base on this card is absolutely perfect for this technique! The glitter enamel dots give a pop of color and can easily be changed out for pearls or rhinestones to keep it neutral.

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″

Poinsettia from Scratch

I wanted to replicate a pattern on my leggings, but didn’t have the poinsettia punch so I improvised! It’s a bit of a mish-mash, but I think for what I had on hand it came out pretty well. I used a LOT of different framelits and thinlits to get this beautiful Christmas flower, so be sure to check below for all the materials used.

I love finding inspiration for my cards in unexpected places, and I think finding inspiration from a clothing item is so awesome! It’s a color combination that I would have NEVER put together myself, so I’m glad I got out of my comfort bubble to give this a go!

Measurements

Card Base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Card Mat – 4″ x 5-1/4″
Scrap Pieces – Large enough to cut out assorted pieces
