Thursday in 3D 21-2018

Only a few more days left in my week here at Card A Day Challenge blog. 


The theme for May is celebrating Mom and the color scheme is pink, gold and white. The creation of a 3D card is a stretch for me. 

Here's my card



I decided to make a fancy fold card. I found a 6x6 paper pack where some of the papers were gold, pink and white – perfect. I used some of these papers to decorate the different areas of the card. For the sentiment, I used Hero Arts CL980 Happy Mother’s Day.  Here's a view of the card opened up.

Wow Wednesday 21-2018

Welcome back. I have another card for you today.


The theme for May is celebrating Mom and the color scheme is pink, gold and white. For WOW Wednesday, the challenge is to turn up the volume on a card.  Here's the original card.



The original card used STAMPlorations Framed Dogwood stamp, gold embossing powder and heat set onto watercolor paper. I added color with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush. For the sentiment, I die cut using Impression Obsession’s die 166-F Happy Birthday and gold heat embossed with Clearly Besotted’s Happy Days stamp set.


Here's my "turn up the volume card".



To turn up the volume, I added Wink of Stella to the petals of the flowers and Nuvo Glitter Drops White Blizzard to the centers of the flowers. I added a few gold strips to the top of the card to add a bit more shine.

Thanks for stopping by. Please come back tomorrow and I'll have another card for you.

Technique Tuesday 21-2018

Hi! It's Sue back again with another card.


The theme for May is celebrating Mom and the color scheme is pink, gold and white. For Technique Tuesday, the challenge is to use this month’s technique – designer’s choice.  I chose heat embossing. 

Here's my card



I heat embossed the large flower using Hero Arts CL980 Mother’s Day stamp set onto vellum. I added color with Copic markers. I fussy cut the flower. For the sentiment, I used Simons Says STAMP Happy Holidays die and gold cardstock and Clearly Besotted Happy Day stamp set, heat embossed with gold embossing powder on a strip of pink cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by. Please come back tomorrow and I'll have another card for you.
