Happy Saturday everybody! I hope you're all having a great weekend and staying warm!
First up is a card for the C4C19 challenge which is to make a birthday card. My birthday stash was getting low anyway, so this was the perfect opportunity to add to it. The image is a clear stamp I got from a $1 bin at Joanne's. I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed it with clear ep. I colored it with Tombows and added a few stickles to the candles along with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the frosting. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I used some pink passion and pacific point cardstocks, embossing the pink with the numbers ef and layering all on a white cardstock base. Lastly, a few snippets of ribbon were added for interest.
This card is for the JUGS15 challenge to add stitching. It's also for the OCC 3D challenge to create a 3D card. I used an old piece of self-adhesive fabric binding on the vertical panel and stitched it down to real red cardstock with my sewing machine. I used a scalloped punch on that panel. The hearts were cut with my Cricut from Vintage Cream and Real Red and popped up on dimensionals on each layer. I laid down a few diagonal strips of Scor-tape and added some MS tinsel glitter for the background. The Lovey Dovey heart from the "A Little Somethin" SU set was stamped with Versamark, and embossed it with red ep. I added a few Geo Sparkler red heart stickers to the top and the smallest heart and finished it all off with a red grosgrain ribbon tied in a knot. I just couldn't seem to get a good picture of this card for some reason. I tried using red and black backgrounds, but they looked even worse than this photo! Maybe my camera just doesn't like glitter or something?! LOL
That's it for me today, but thank you to all of the ladies who gave us these great challenges and samples for inspiration! Have a fabulous weekend!!
