Welcome to our Blog Hop #18.
I began working on this blog challenge a few weeks ago while I was attending Sharon’s Virtual Stamp Camp! It was fun spending the weekend creating together, even though we weren’t together physically!
The first card I came up with used Forever Blossoms. I stamped the flowers in Memento Black Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock and coloured it in using Petal Pink and Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends. The sentiment is from Peaceful Moments and is placed on Organdy Striped Ribbon.
I didn’t feel this card suited the offset design so I layered it straight onto Petal Pink Cardstock and a Very Vanilla Base and added a pearl. The whole card is then brushed with Wink of Stella.
I was then inspired to make another card using the ‘Back on your Feet‘ stamp set. I wanted to also use the cute Meerkats (Saleabration) to add a little humour to the card. This was placed on crumb cake sponged Whisper White cardstock and offset on Noble Peacock foil embossed with the Mosaic 3D folder and I added a Crumb Cake embossed Bricks and Mortar wall embellished with some burlap ribbon behind the turtle and the meerkats were peeping over the wall. All the creatures are coloured using Granny Apple Green and Crumb Cake blends.
The whole card is placed on an Early Espresso base. I think it is all quite cute. The sentiment is inside the card. I hope you like these two quite different cards and enjoy looking through everyone’s blogs!
