I’m Back!!!!! and a new card

Hi everyone! It’s been almost two and a half months since my last post and since I made a card. My life these past two months were far from uneventful. My uncle came into town and stayed for a month and I spent most of my time with him. After he left, I just couldn’t get back into the swing of things. I felt pressured to make a card and every time I sat down to make one, my creative juices were completely dried up. I gave up and did something else and that happened pretty much everyday for the next month or so. I tried so hard but nothing worked. So I decided to give it some time and step away. Then today, I was watching a video tutorial on YT and I felt like creating. So here we are….

I started with the different challenge blogs I frequently join and listed the ones I wanted to join. This brings us to today’s post…

Here is my card –



I started this card with some Hero Arts Snow layering paper cut to a card base measuring 5 x 3 3/4 inches. I masked off a 1 inch column vertically towards the left of the card stock. I stamped the different flowers from the Truly Appreciated set from Hero Arts. I decided to use Versafine Onyx Black ink so I could clear emboss the flowers. For the shading, the wanted to have an ombre effect, I used the following inks – Hero Arts Soft Pool, Hero Arts Tide Pool, and Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue. For the sentiment, I used one of the greetings from the Little Hoot set from Hero Arts again stamping it in Versafine Onyx black and clear embossing powder.

To finish the card, I added some enamel dots from My Minds Eye and black gemstones from Hero Arts.

That’s it for this card.

You Fill My Day With Rainbows

Hi everyone! Apologies for the delay in posting but I have been quite busy the past week with very little time to craft. Thank you for your patience. Hopefully, I wont have a break that long again in the near future.

Now on to today’s card —

I am entering this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. The theme for this week is ANYTHING GOES.

Here is my card —

You Fill My Day With Rainbows

I started this card with a standard size with the fold on top cut from some Neenah Solar White card stock. I stamped the rays from The SSS Color and Sunshine set with colors that match the rainbow. The full color list will be provided on the supply list below. After stamping each color, I cut a ray from each one and added some Colored Elmer’s Glitter Glue. This glue dries flat so to add more dimension, I added some Glossy Accents to give it a clear raised image. I attached each ray with the Xyron Sticker Maker.

For the sentiment, I used the same stamp set and paired 2 sentiments together. I stamped it in ColorBox black pigment ink and then heat embossed with the American Crafts Zing clear embossing powder.

To finish the card, I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and black enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye.
