Fleur di lis Anniversary cu06649
The Free For All Challenge (F4A288) on Splitcoast wants us to use something Gold. So I made a black & gold anniversary card using a really pretty Fleur de Lis image. It just looks elegant to me so that’s the direction I went. I black embossed it onto a light metallic gold card stock and fussy cut it. I used a metallic gold Sharpie to add a little bit of shading to the image. It was added to a black die cut oval and another gold fancy die cut layer.

The black background was made by spritzing a Fleur de Lis embossing folder w/ gold shimmer spray then placing the black card stock inside & embossing. It’s so hard for the camera to capture, but all the specks are actually shimmery gold and very pretty in real life! The greeting was gold embossed & I fussy cut it into a flag shape to attach on top.
Here’s the inside using the leftover narrow frame and another fleur de lis I didn’t use on the front.

Snowflake Ornament cu07014
Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT544) is all about the left hand side. So my ornament image is on the left side of the card & so is the greeting.

After stamping the ornament with Memento, I colored it w/ Copics then over stamped w/ Versafine (using my Misti).  The ornament was reverse masked in order to stamp the snowflakes inside, then masked completely to stamp the bare branches & sponge in the background. I used a splatter image to add the snowflakes w/ white ink & I also white embossed them. I added a sparkle flecked gray layer behind the ornament & also behind the fancy die cut on the other side. A little stickles was added for sparkle & a little gray bow.

I didn’t take a pic of the Copics because they were all cool grays…C0, C2, C4, C5, C7.

Sending Flowers cu 04347
Today’s Technique Challenge (TLC494) is all about embossed water color (it’s also a revisit of TLC168). Love water color and I thought these flower images and dies would be perfect for white embossing then water coloring.

On water color paper, I white embossed the big Flower Pops Background then used water brushes and Peerless water colors to add the color. I started out trying to use the colors from the CAS285 Challenge, but I’m not sure I can get away with calling this clean & simple…though it wasn’t complicated. For the die cut flowers & leaves, I white embossed the line versions, then painted the water colors directly on the solid versions and stamped over. I attached these to a white panel w/ a die cut border on which I stamped the greeting. The large background was attached underneath.

Just for fun, here’s the inside. Since I don’t use designer paper that often, I often either stamp or use leftover die cuts and images to add to the inside. These were leftover strips from die cutting the border. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
