If you just happen to stop by my blog, know that today we are celebrating our friend Ruby's bridal shower papercrafter style!! YAY!!
Amy has been planning this for some time now and I hope Ruby you are enjoying the hop (along with everyone else).
Here is what I made for Ruby using the inspiration photo below:
I have used Altenew's Beautiful Day stamp set, I know Ruby loves Altenew! That is how we met on Instagram, via the Altenew hashtag! She made these incredible watercolored cards, I can never forget them!
I wish you lots of luck and good wishes for your future and hope you find your perfect mattress :p
For my card I have used distress inks to watercolor the flowers and leaves which are gold heat embossed. Fussy cut them out, layered the pieces on top of some more stamping.
Everything is gold heat embossed (except for the sentiment) if you cant tell.
Whats a hop without some prizes eh?
Winners will be selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop! Commenting will close on Saturday, October 22 at 11:59 pm pacific. Winners will be posted on Amy's blog on Sunday, October 23rd.
When I saw the inspiration palette for this month's Altenew challenge I was a bit hesitant.
These colours, together, are a bit out of my comfort zone.
This card is my second try. The first try was a total failure.
I hope you like this, I made this for a friend. I tried to keep it simple and have a lot of white space to balance the vibrant colours, but of course I HAD to add paint splatters. Added a lot of dimension to the flowers, looks like this one will have to mailed out in a box!
I have used Hennah Elements plus Label Love.
Coloured the stamp using Faber Castell classic pencils. Added a bit of glossy accent on the flower centers, a few enamel dots and sequins to add the bling factor.
Thats it from my side!
Stop by my Instagram, I post quite regularly there!
I saw this gorgeous moodboard over at Artful Crafting and thought I'd play along.
The colours are SO not up my alley. I would've just used a couple of shades provided (preferably the greys and blue) and created a monochromatic card. BUT I wanted to challenge myself and stuck to the colours shown.
The big rose is handmade. The other three roses I dyed using distress inks.
The moodboard photo is so rustic and grungy, I wanted my card to have the same look
Applied tons of gesso and texture paste, also used Tim Holtz layering stencil to add design.
I also added a lot of stamping on the background but you cant really see that in photos because of the splatters.
Sentiment by Altenew, dies by Spellbinder and Cheery Lynn Designs.
Tons of sparkle on this card, closeup below.
Added a couple of sequins and I was done.
I hope you like it. I was very apprehensive, I didn't want to add the rusty lattice, I was itching to add a white one instead but I stopped myself. I think it doesn't look too bad, it actually works, separates the floral arrangement from the background!
I really wanted to link up at Virginia's linky party so I decided to combine a couple of challenges together. My inspiration comes from the fabulous card by Joyce Mehrberg, caseing her card (linked at the bottom of this post) for Happy Little Stampers CASE the designer challenge.
You should definitely check out the gorgeous entries!
Here are my cards separately.
This is a one layer card. I waterclored the flowers from the Altenew Wild Hibiscus set. I glued the fussy cut flowers and leaves giving different dimension to all pieces , added some stamping on the background using Golden Garden set, the sentiment is from the Painted Butterflies set.
My flower centers are very tiny sequins.
For this card, I followed the last week sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch and followed the same pattern as in the previous card, as in fussy cut flowers and stamping on the base.
Stamps used here are from Altenew's Wild Hibiscus, Golden Garden and Label Love.
I don't know if it's visible but there is a gold foil cardstock strip right above the black and white diagonal strip (which I created myself using a black marker).
Here are a couple of closeups.
Here is the BTS pic I shared on my Instagram a couple of days back.
That's all from my side. I hope you like both the cards!
Thank you for inquiring about my mum folks, she is doing better now - not 100% but better.
