Wow Wednesday 08-2018

Hi! Sue back again with another card.



The theme for February is love and the color scheme is red, pink and white and for Wow Wednesday, the theme is to turn up the volume of one of my past cards. Truthfully, I had very few cards which fit the red, pink and white colour scheme and which would be able to be “turned up”. Here's the original card.



Here's the "turned up volume" card.



I managed to add Wink of Stella on the white dry embossed area. I also added a few shiny red pearls to the sentiment die cut. Here's a close-up.


Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow.

Technique Tuesday 08-2018

Hi! Welcome back. It's Sue here with a new card.

The theme for February is love and the color scheme is red, pink and white and for Technique Tuesday, the card needs to have added details with white or metallic pens/pencils. 

Here's my card



I started by using a Sakura Gelly Roll red pen outlining Tim Holtz’ Latticework stencil. Here's a close-up



I trimmed this panel to 2.75” x 5.5”. I found some striped red/pink paper and cut a 1.5” strip for the left side of the card. I stamped a flower using Waffle Flower’s A Bunch stamp set onto pink cardstock which was then fussy cut. Some white dots were added to the centre of the flower, using Signo’s white pen (which I have found to be the best white pen).The sentiment from Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments was stamped red cardstock and trimmed to a banner. The flower was popped up with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow.

Mistletoe Monday 08-2018

Hi! Sue here with another card for you. 


The theme for February is love and the color scheme is red, pink and white and for Mistletoe Monday, the card needs to be a Christmas/holiday card. 

Here's my card



I chose to make a Valentine’s Day card. To create the background, I added color to a white card panel with distress inks (ripe persimmon, picked raspberry, spun sugar) and added Perfect Pearls with a dry brush before the ink dried. I ran the panel with a WeR Memory Keepers geometric embossing folder through my Big Shot. The sentiment is from Avery Elle Love Notes stamp set and was cut into a banner. The heart was die cut using Memory Box Cherub Hearts die from a scrap piece of watercolour paper where pink and red Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers were scribbled and using a water brush the colours blended. A paper doily was folded to add some texture and dimension. A few rhinestones were added to the banner for some sparkle. Here's a close-up
