Now on to a few card ideas I am happy to share! By the way, both of my cards measure 5 x 7 with the panels measuring 4 ¾ x 6 ¾ .
I went bright and bold for my first card, creating my own background pattern with our featured stamp. The ink families I used are Tea Party, Golden Sunset, Pocketful of Sunshine, and Green Meadows. I then heat embossed the sentiment onto a teal cardstock cut with one of the Nesting Labels dies. As a final touch I added black Nuvo drops to give the illusion of splatter.
For my second card, I went a little more subtle using yellows on Navy paper and gold accents, I really like this color combination. I first stamped the background with Altenew’s Pattern Play-Diamonds using Antique Gold pigment ink and embossing with clear powder. I stamped the flowers separately with the Pocketful of Sunshine ink set, and cut them out using the matching die. I cut the leaves from Altenew’s Gold Foil Cardstock and gold embossed the sentiment from the Forever & Always stamp set.
That’s all for me today and I am the last stop on the list, I trust you’ve had tons of inspiration along this blog hop! For your convenience I am listing the full list of designers.
