Feminine Birthday & Day 4 Homework


Hi friends.   My card for today is combining a few challenges again.  :)  This week at Seize the birthday there is a great CAS sketch and the colors at 10 minute craft dash are represented in my card above.  I was also inspired by Muse, Marion Vagg.

I love the white embossing on the different colors (I did a card similar to this a while back) and that is what inspired me in Marion's card.  I decided to use my Versamarker to highlight the flowers a bit, since I still had time left.  :)  Here is Marion's card, the sketch and the 10 minute craft dash colors.








Cardstock:  Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Regal Rose
Ink:  Versamark, Crumb Cake
Stamps:  Happiest Birthday Wishes, Secret Garden
Accessories:  White Embossing powder, Versamarker

My second card for you today is for yesterday's Online Pattern Play class.



In yesterday's videos we learned how to alter our Patterned Paper.  I was looking through my stash and found this fun pattern.  I added some crystal effects to the red dots to make them sparkle and shine and I also took my white gel pen and added white dots to some of the Sahara sand dots to add more interest.  I CASEd a card by Kelly Rasmussen.  One more Christmas card done for me.  :)

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Cardstock:  Sahara Sand, Holiday Lounge DSP(retired SU)
Ink:  Versamark
Stamps:  Silent Night (PTI)
Accessories:  White Gel Pen, Crystal Effects, Snowflake brad, Dimensionals, white embossing powder

  3. All three cards are delightful. I love the look of the white against your patterned paper in your first two cards. Outstanding job on altering your paper in the third card. I just joined the class and need to play catch up.

  5. I LOVE your cards - so pretty! Good luck in the challenges! I so wanted to take the patterned paper class, but it was exactly during my conference and to take it later is just not as much fun....I think I will simply learn from you. Thanks for doing your homework :)
