Floral Note

I chose to create with the color pallet from The Paper Players, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, and Night of Navy.

I used Spellbinders Glimmer Plates in this card. The flower is a peony illustrated by Yana Smakula. The greeting is also a Glimmer Plate. I used Hammermill paper for the Glimmer as it usually works well. When I used my Glimmer machine, I spend quite a bit of time and all I do is make Glimmer pieces and then let them sit until I want to use them. Today was a day to use a few of the pieces.

I took out the ink pads that match the colors in the challenge. I watercolored the peony using a water brush. I added a few gems and called it complete. It has a lot more shimmer in real life as I am not a great photographer with foil.

Thanks for spending time with me. I enjoyed the challenge.

Crushing on Cardstock Day 4 backgrounds

I have been using Day 4 background ideas for a few cards.

Happy Birthday

For this card I used a My Favorite Things background stamp, a die from The Stamps of Life, and the butterfly using my Spellbinders Hot Foil machine.

Floral Hi

I used a SU 3D embossing folder on this card along with a stamp set from Unity Stamps. The die is from The Stamps of Life.

I enjoyed the different kinds of backgrounds created by Keisha Charles on Day 4. This is a small look at the kind she created.
