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.

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 19 – Panda Party

Today we are “hanging out” with the adorable panda from Party Pandas. He’s casually hanging from his balloon with a sentiment from the Occasions Catalog stamp set In The Trees that reads “We need to hang out more.” I love this sentiment paired with the adorable Party Pandas set. The only way you can get this adorable panda is for FREE during Sale-A-Bration happening right now!

I’ve used the Stampin’ Write Markers set of In Colors for 2016 – 2018. The colors I used are Dapper Denim for the shadow below the panda, and Flirty Flamingo for the shading on the balloon. I used a Blender Pen to fade the colors out slightly and used a technique where you color with the markers on an acrylic block to pick up the ink with the Blender Pen.

This technique would also work well with the Aqua Painters, although I would recommend using our Watercolor Paper if you use the Aqua Painters. The Watercolor Paper is specifically made to help soak up that water and leave a beautiful color without the paper “pilling” or warping too much.

By purchasing the basics below to make this card, you can earn the Party Pandas stamp set for FREE during Sale-A-Bration!

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″

Party Pandas Side by Side Card

I made this Side by Side Card about two weeks ago and it has been sitting on my filming table since. I just wasn’t sure I liked how the Foxy Friends set looked with this card. But then, I received my Party Pandas Sale-A-Bration set and inspiration hit! I love how these twirling, dancing, happy pandas look on this card!

The bright colors are also really fun on this whimsical card. It’s perfect for kids both big and small! The Glitter Enamel Dots really punch up the fun factor on this project with their hint of shimmery goodness. I can’t help but smile when I look at this adorable card.
