Weddings

It’s the season for AMOUR (Love) and brides and grooms 😉 I’ve had these Technique Tuesday charming heart tag dies and thought, maybe the tag is not too small for the Less is More Tag Challenge #464. Lately, I’ve been using Winsor & Newton’s gold metallic bronze ink, just because it shines beautifully…and that makes me happy 😀

Supplies: Technique Tuesday Charming Hearts, Magenta stamp, MFT Stitchable Dot Circle Stax, gold thread & bead

Sweetest Pea

Playing to the Color Throwdown Challenge #687 of lime green, aqua, and gold. I did some ink sponging with a Carabelle Studio stencil. Then I stamped and gold heat embossed the sweet pea filling in the petals with glossing accents and some gold Pearl-Ex was sprinkled. Voilà, that’s my take on the CTD687.

Teacher

A quick one layer card for my teacher son-in-law. Playing to the “white & green” Seize the Birthday #234 Challenge and the Fusion Card Challenge “Bookshelf” theme. I used an old Clear & Simple Stamp set for the books. The Bonne Fête (Happy Birthday) are from two different sets and stamped as the top border. I scored twice, under the wish and the books to create dimension for the shelves.
