I made 2 cards over the weekend using stamps/dies from a couple companies that have recently been added to my list of favorites: Winnie & Walter and Concord & 9th.
First is my entry for W&W Rerun #16 using Lydia's wreath card for inspiration. My wreath is made with by stamping the tiny leaf & blossom from W&W Big, Bold, Seasons using Memento Pistachio & Rhubarb Stalk. The sentiment is from the same set & I gold embossed "winter" & stamped "bliss" in Versafine Vintage Sepia. Gold stickles was added to the centers of the blossoms & the panel was liberally spritzed with gold Perfect Pearls. I'll probably use it for a winter birthday card. I'm also entering AAA Cards & Double D.
Next is my Sparkle & Shine card for Where Creativity Meets C9. I really love the Layering Leaves dies & my sweet friend Betty sent me several die cuts.
I really like the look of leaving some of the pieces in place & it also allows more color to show. I watercolored with Zigs & added Stickles after they dried. Using Perfect Paper Adhesive (dries invisible) I attached the leaves to ones still on the sheet Betty used to send them to me. The scrap of kraft was on my table & I thought it was perfect for the background. Using my Mini MISTI I stamped the sentiment from C&9 Love You, Mean It stamp set using Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate. The trim with gold metallic threads was $1 at Target--so pretty. I'm also entering CropStop & The Playground. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
