PE: As You See It Featured Artist!! Yay! So happy, since I’ve played their challenge after so long!! 😀 😀
Stampin’ Royalty Top Pick!!
Hello! I’ve been away for quite some time – except for a few scheduled DT posts, I’ve been doing nothing! But not behind the scene.. I was busy making a few cards for my dear ones, who have birthdays and anniversary next month. And me, I had to make and re-make the cards a million times before I was happy… and that took a lot of time! 😀 And when I finally did make some cards I could post, I fell ill, couldn’t take any photos of my cards, and when I recovered, the challenges I had made them for were all over! Just my luck! But I am just posting them here, hoping they’ll be applicable for a few other challenges..
I made both my cards using Concord and 9th Lace Leaf stamp set. For my first card, I chose three shades of green. Stamped them using MISTI, then the messy background, spread it with a wet paintbrush. I then die cut the panel twice, a bigger rectangle and a smaller square. I then stamped the sentiment inside, then adhered these pieces on the card base, foam mounting the mid die cut. Finally, some Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss White for embellishing to finish the card.

For my second card, I went with green, gold and black – so charming! 🙂
The bottom most leaf was an experiment with FlitterGlu and foil, the second one, black ink on vellum, the third, gold embossing on vellum. To finish the card, I fussy cut the leaves and adhered them together using double sided tape, mounted the leaves and then the sentiment using foam tape. I then added some drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops Bright Gold, then added a gold line frame using Uniball Signo gold gel pen.
