I love the placement of the flower bouquets in opposite corners which compliments the scripty sentiment in the center perfectly!
I also love the combination of the white heat embossed images and water colors which brings a very elegant feel!
All of the images and sentiments were die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts in which you can find a large die that cuts out all of the sentiments strips at once – is a super time saver! The rounded corners on the sentiment strip also gives it a unique finishing touch.
Thank you so much Karen for your charming inspiration!
I personally love clean and simple design and I love what she’s created here!
For her mini slimline, she die cut a heart to set the scene and ink blended it with Distress Inks. The family of cuddly bears are from the Inseparable stamp set.
The sentiment ‘Special Delivery’ was white heat embossed on black cardstock and die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. She simply finished it off with some clear gems.
For her tag, she Copic coloured the images and added Crystal Glaze to the purple hearts on the mini envelopes. The sentiment ‘sending warm hugs’, from Unity and Friendship Quotes, is also white heat embossed on black cardstock.
If you look closely, I really like how the coordinating die-cut for this sentiment cuts close to the texts. She then finished off the tag with some iridescent bubbles and twine.
I just love the nice clean looks of these projects!
Thank you Michelle for your beautiful inspirations!
Hello everyone! Mimi is back today with a super adorable shadow box inspiration!
She custom made her own shadow box measuring about 5 3/4 long to set the scene. She also made a couple of one inch wide tabs to fit into her box.
She then adhered her beautifully colored critters from the Inseparable stamp set on the different tabs to create the three dimensional look!
She added a bunch of accessory images such as the muffin, coffees from Rabbit Cafe. I also love the scattered flowers and how she used the dance floor image from Fun Night Out as the picnic blanket – so clever!
Hello friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Let’s hop right in to our inspiration for today. We’re super excited to have Ilda Dias guest designing for us!
Her card features the latest Fancy Gift Bow Stencils 360°. She ink blended three different pastel colors on one of the 8” stencil from this set and rotated it at 30deg intervals (jumping from circle to circle) to create this dreamy background! So beautiful!
She then used the 6” stencil and apply iridescent glitter gel over it to create this icy frozen fractal look!
She added a white heat embossed sentiment from So Blessed stamp set that was die cut with its coordinating dies. She also finished her card with some matching iridescent gems!
This card certainly reminds me of the movie Frozen, Christmas and Snowflakes!
Thank you so much for your beautiful inspiration Ilda!
Thanks for stopping by everyone, have a great rest of the week!
The final design is achieved in 3 rounds of inking (by rotating the stencil to every 4th circle on the scale, twice). This large canvas allows her to easily create two cards, an A2 size and a 5×5 square card, just by slicing it down near the middle!
This one below is the A2 size card. I just love the rainbow hue that she blended.
Below is the 5×5” square card. I love how the beautiful colors contrasting against the crisp black trims and sentiments!
