Today I have not one, but two cards for the Share the Love Week Featuring Essentials by Ellen at Winnie & Walter and Ellen Hutson. You have only a few hours left to enter these challenges, so hurry up and link your projects to both galleries.

I made this card to enter the Florals Challenge (Day 1) and the Transparent Challenge (Day 4). I used the inspiration from the mood board of day 5 because I can’t resist a good mood board… I just want to make projects for each and every of those amazing photos. Since I don’t have enough time to do that (and decide what I will do, always the hardest part…) I used one of the pictures, the floral wedding table settings, for other challenges.


Beautiful Day


I started by adhering a few stripes of Scor Tape to the background, and then heat embossed with Judikins iridescent sparkle EP to create interest and add some bling, after all this is the décor for a wedding… White heat embossed a vellum Mondo Magnolia and blended Distress inks in light pink, gluing to the background. After that I heat embossed hydrangeas and tulips, also in vellum, and water colored a few fussy cut leaves and also some die cut leaves. Stamped the sentiment onto a piece of wood pattern paper with a very dark brown (HA Cup O’ Joe ink) and heat embossed with clear EP, giving the idea of burned wood. Embellished with a few resin flowers, and a Scrapiniec chipboard to frame the sentiment. Can I say that I love how this turned out? Yep, I do.


Stamps: EH – Mondo Magnolia; W&W – In Bloom: Addie’s Garden.

Dies: EH – Mondo Magnolia; W&W – Maggie’s Roses Cutaways.

    Hey there! This is spectacular! I love the contrast of the white embossed vellum with the woodgrain!
    I haven’t had much tome for crafting and visiting blogs over the last year, but I’m happy to reconnect and see your beautiful and original creations!
