Inlaid Die Cuts

Another card using the Winnie & Walter Hello die.  This card is for 2 of the BD Bash challenges: Rainbow with Vanessa & Inlaid Die Cutting with Mayuri.  I stamped PTI Watercolor Wonder in some of my favorite Brilliance Pealescent inks: Lavender, Coral, Jade & Sky Blue.  Then the word was die cut from the panel & from white cardstock layering them slightly offset.  It was inlaid into the panel which was mounted with foam tape to the card front. Tim Holtz stickers were used for the word "friend" & PPP Marshmallow sequins finish it off.  I'm also entering at AAA Cards.

Next is my card for the February challenge at Memory Box.  Couldn't miss this one as it's simply to make a pink card--my favorite color!
I'm lucky to have a couple friends who send me die cuts so I can see if I "need" to buy the dies. Cat sent me the MB Precious Hearts which I glittered & attached to the MB Grand Heart colored by smooshing with Distress Ink picked raspberry.  I stamped a tiny heart with the same ink & the Penny Black sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black. I added more water to the left over ink & smooshed a panel of watercolor paper. The large heart was die cut from the panel & I stacked & inlaid the decorated one. A strip of printed paper & a black pearl finish it off.  I'm also entering Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  8. Both cards are lovely, your WW card has such scrumptious colors. Soft rainbow, so spring-y. Wonderful design. Your heart card is fabulous in pink set off by that punch of black. Nicely done.

  16. These cards are both awesome. So blessed you joined our previous Challenge and hope you join us again in our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the encouragement only the Word of God can provide in James 1:12 which tells us, "Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him." Have a blessed weekend.
