Most of my cards are one of a kind, but I do make all the same for hubby's cousins. I've loved this Avery Elle Winter Wreath since I first saw it.
Usually I make one layer cards for the cousins, but decided to add a mat this year. Very simple, but I'm happy with how they turned out. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.
Next is my entry for PTI challenge to make a card with a little sparkle. I finally inked up the 2018 freebie stamp set called Your Beautiful Birthday. I thought it looked intimidating, but actually it's easy & fun to use!
The inks are Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal, Smokey Shadow, Weathervane, Lemon Tart & Bright Buttercup. I heat embossed the words & sprinkle layer in JudiKins Iridescent Sparkle ep.
The image was die cut with Shape Shifter's Circle 3 & the Smokey Shadow panel was dry embossed with an Echo Park folder. I have tons of ribbon & found this one that was a perfect match. The dots are Shimmer Pico Embellisher. I'm also entering NBUS.
I had such fun with that stamp set, I decided to use it again for PTI challenge to add Rainstones to a card. Luckily, I still have a few Darnell gave me the first time we met in person.
This time I stamped the cake layers in Hawaiian Shores, Limeade Ice & Berry Sorbet on a Soft Stone panel. The cake plate & candles were stamped in Delicata Silvery Shimmer, the words were stamped in Hero Arts Shimmer & I used a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen on the sprinkles.
The white Pierced Feature Frames die cut was splattered with gray ink & attached with foam tape. I do love the look of Rainstones for embellishing cards. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.
