It was wonderful to hop into the craft room today and get crafty. The time seems to far and between nowadays but when it does happen, I treasure those moments. This is what I came up with!
My first card today is using a technique that I keep seeing around pinterest. You stamp on white card stock and then emboss over it. I just love the look and feel of a simple CAS card but with such great texture.
I grabbed our Hexagons stamp set and stamped these images on our Hexagon Cut File and the made these hexagon shapes. I ended up gluing each shape down because it gave me a chance to move the hexagons around before they adhered to the white card stock.
After the hexagons dried, I then ran it through the Big Shot using a lines and polka dot embossing folder. I love using both folders as it created such a beautiful texture to the card.
For my final touches, I used our Happy Occasions Sentiments & Vintage Banners set and placed the banner at the base of my card. I didn’t want to take up too much space with ribbon so I added some hemp twine instead.
For my second card today, I went with soft colors of peach and blue. These are such romantic colors and are just so feminine.
I used our Cute Circles and Trendy Circle Sentiments stamp sets for my card. Between these two sets there is an endless amount of combinations. After stamping and using the our Cute Circles Cut File & Big Shot to cut them out, I added little pearls around the circle image.
Peach Daisies and Off White Flowers were used on the corner of my card. I also added a strip of White Crochet Tape along the bottom for a bit more softness.
I hope that you have enjoyed todays cards. Have a wonderful weekend everyone! We will be back here on Monday with the winner of our blog candy and new inspirations! Hugs, Joanna
