CAS Mix Up

Happy Wednesday!
Today's card share is another from Papertrey Ink using the Peonies on Parade watercolor sheets. This are so fun to color using the Zig clean color watercolor markers. I added a greeting using the 2016 Anniversary set, Painted Petals and of course I used my Misti stamping tool to get the birthday wishes in place.
I stamped the word "sending in Versamark ink and then embossed it in the new copper embossing powder from Stampin Up.

I am entering this one in the
CAS Mix Up May challenge

Clear & Sheer Day 2

I am currently working on more May birthday cards and Mothers Day cards, so I am running behind in my homework for the card class I am taking at Online Card Classes so I thought that I would make it up by using one of the techniques on one of my mothers day cards. 
It is really hard to find colored vellum these days so Jennifer McGuire taught a technique to color your own vellum which I used here. To get this ombre' effect I used Watermelon Wonder and Flirty Flamingo dye inks from Stampin Up.
 The stamp set I used is one of my all time favorites from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Precious Poppies. I stamped the poppy image with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder, the sentiment was embossed in black. I framed it with the Scallop Frames die from Pretty, Pink, Posh.


Happy  Monday!
My card share today is for the challenge over at CASology of Sprinkles. 
To make my card I started with a watercolor panel from Papertrey Ink and used Zig Clean Color watercolor markers to color the image, next I stamped the sentiment "sending" from the 2016 Anniversary set in versa mark ink and embossed it with Gilded embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. I used the MISTI to add the birthday wishes stamped in versa fine Onxy Black. For the "sprinkle" of gold I used some gold Heidi Swap Color Shine over the front of my card. To finish it off I added some gold glitter tape from Stampin Up around the edges of the base.

Clear & Sheer Day 1

Starting a day late but I have signed up for the Clear & Sheer class at Online Card Classes. Today's class was all about ways to attach vellum because you and I know there is no vellum adhesive out there that don't show behind vellum.
To make my card I started with a piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock and ran it through the striped embossing folder to give it some dimension behind my vellum piece. I stamped the large floral image from the Birthday Blooms set and colored it with Copic markers. I used a piece of printed vellum and stamped my greeting in Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I attached my vellum panel with foam dots hidden underneath my image and with a piece of gold wash tape across the top.
