My favourite leaf stamp, Dylusions FURTHER AROUND THE EDGE Stamp Set, was stamped several times onto Bristol Paper and then heat embossed with Silver pearl EP. I made this card twice 😛 , because I learnt that when using Zig markers, the colours tend to fade/change colour/or disappear with Glossy Accents. On my second attempt, I used Tombow brushes and clear heat embossed. Some liquid pearl dots were added for the texture theme at Addicted to CAS Challenge #181.
An all white card for the Less is More Challenge #416 and AAA Cards Case Game #162. I used Memory Box’s Leaf Outline Die to die cut and, at the same time, create a stencil by using the negative. On my card base, I partially die cut MFT’s Stitchable Dot Circle. Using my homemade stencil I applied Versamark within the circle and White Pearl heat embossed. Then I glued the die on top and added a pearl thread for interest. Quick and easy.
For this card I used Tombow Markers to shade some Vellum (yes it will curl 😉 ). Then I glitz heat embossed the two pieces of Lilac and Purple and die cut butterflies with Memory Box’s Pinpoint Butterfly Trio. I used an Altenew fine circle frame over some textured card stock. The white heat embossed sentiment is also from Memory Box call Big & Little Words over a strip of Tombow coloured card stock.
Like most of the world we are confined to our homes. Hubby and I take daily walks and noticed all the rainbow artwork in the home’s windows. Talking to our twin granddaughters, they explained that this mouvement originated from a Lady in Italy who placed a rainbow in her shop window #çavabienaller (everythingwillbeOK). This reminds me of a Maya Angelou quote: “Every storm runs out of rain” 😀
Back to the card, lots of zig markers in rainbow colours for the heart stem bouquet (IO) along with a rainbow vase (Papersmooches). Of course, all were heated embossed in clear and glitz embossing powders. This was adhered to a doily die dry embossed card base with a silver gel pen contour where I hand wrote #çavabienaller. Sending this card to the girls and entering in the CAS Colours & Sketches #363 and Perfectly CAS Challenge #7.

I added a drop of two different Izink, cactus & bamboo, onto some 140lb watercolour paper. With a water sprayer, I spritzed the inks to get them moving and waited for them to dry. I stamped twice, a Stamplorations Mixed Media Grunge and Emerald heat embossed. Using a Pink Fresh Studio floral frame die cut, I adhered it over the coloured area adding two vellum blooms. Three Pearls were added to embellish.
For the second card I spritzed acrylic inks. Once dry, I stamped the leafy branch and butterfly with Versamark adding gold pearl EP. An Alexandra Renke Magic Flower die cut in pink was added along with some Stickles (remember those?).
Can’t wait to see you in our gallery, thanks for stopping by,
The multi colours in the TIME OUT photo Challenge #156 inspired this card using the design at CAS(E) this Sketch #362. I candied the Memory Box Chloe Stem with Zig markers covered with Nuvo Crystal Drops. For the base, I stencilled some Golden Iridescent Pearl acrylic paint using a Tim Holtz stripes stencil. A “Bonne Fête” word die by McCollection was pearlized and the banners were coloured repeating the same method as the bloom.
