Splendid Thoughts for #FMS547 & #JAI615

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by a few things.  Judy's Sketch Challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches & the Inspiration Challenge from Just Add Ink Challenges.  I loved the Zen feel from the #jai615 image and it just so happens my friend has finished her Zen garden and it's her birthday - so voila, all the inspiration comes together!   :)

Please click on the challenge images to visit their blogs and soak in the inspiration - then go make a card for someone special in your life.  




Assembly & Trix

*  I loved the white roof from the inspiration picture, it reminded me of a ripply glass sunroof,  so I thought perhaps the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder, #157980 with vellum might work.  ***Trix emboss the 1 1/8 x 4 piece of vellum first and adhere it to a 4 x 5 1/8 layer of Basic White cardstock by putting Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the raised ridges of the embossed vellum.  

*  Adhere the Basic White layer to a 4 x 5 5/16 layer of Soft Suede cardstock before adhering to the Basic White 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.  

*  Adhere 4, 1 1/8 x 1/8 strips of Soft Suede to the velum with multipurpose liquid glue.

*  Use the Splendid Stems Dies, #159676 to die cut the pot shape from Brushed Metallic Cardstock, #163103 *available now 'til the end of August, as a Sale-A-Bration item*  Adhere to the card with dimensionals.

*  Stamp the leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts Stamp Set, #159668 with Garden Green ink on Garden Green cardstock and die cut out, then adhere with dimensionals.

*  Stamp the 'birthday wishes' sentiment from the Garden Birdhouses Stamp Set, #155090 with Garden Green Ink.  ***Trix, double stack the dimensionals to really make the sentiment pop.

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is one of the simple technique cards we made at my Customer Appreciation Workshop.  It's a CASE from the Mini Catalogue - July to December 2022 - do you recognize it?  There's so much inspiration in our catalogues, check out page 39 for the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder, #159831. 

I used the Handmade Wishes Bundle, #159691 for the punched sentiment. 



 

Assembly & Trix

***Trix, wipe White Craft Ink, #147277 on the embossing folder before embossing the 5 3/4 x 2 3/4 piece of Melon Mambo cardstock.  Cut a piece of Polished pink cardstock for the background layer.

*  Adhere the pink cardstock layers together then adhere to the 6 x 3 Basic White card base.

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Handmade Wishes Stamp Set, #159684 with Melon Mambo Ink and punch out using the Handmade Tag Punch, # 159690.  Purchase both together and save 10% - Handmade Wishes Bundle, #159691.

*  Adhere White Bakers Twine, #155475 to the back of the tag with Stampin' Seal then adhere to the card with dimensionals.  ***Trix, splash a little Wink of Stella, #141897 glitter by flicking the brush end against your finger so it splashes on the card.
