Anniversary Card



Hello Peeps !!!

Happy Tuesday !!!

I was playing with the technique last Saturday using a different stamp set, and this is what I came up with. I did embossing on the flowers, then I used a Stampin' Up brush to apply color on the inside of the flowers. I used diluted Soft Suede ink refill and like the effect.  The main image was stamped in Soft Suede and I did a 3-d effect by stamping the flower 2 times . I finished it off using pearls and satin ribbon, Hope you like it.

RECIPE:
Stamps:  Embrace Life
Paper: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Ink:  Soft Suede, White Craft
Accessories:  satin ribbon, pearls
Tools:  heat gun, white embossing powder, scallop trim border punch

Consider It Cased 45



Hello Peeps !!!

Happy Saturday !!!

I was totally inspired on today's Consider It Cased card from Jackie's blog ( Creative Designs by Jackie) and you will agree with me once you see her card and with a tutorial to go with it.  Her technique in making this card is just totally awesome.  I did changed the layout but the general concept in  making this card is still the same. I did however used a marker to go around it. I also used a diluted ink refill and blot the center of the image for a bit of distressed look. Hope you like it.
