Glitter Queens Spring Blog Hop Day 2
Good morning Paper Crafters, welcome back to day 2 of our Hop! I hope you enjoyed the fabulous projects everyone created for Wednesday, I was certainly inspired. Today I have a couple of cards to share, the first one has more of the flowers like I used on yesterdays card, only with these I wanted a two-tone effect so they would match the stamped flowers that I painted using ink and blender pens.
I started by punching out flowers with yellow CS; after crimping, distressing and separating them I used the blender pen to wet then add color to the edges, then I dried them with my heating tool. I used designer printed brads for the centers. I also used the blender pens to paint in the yellow and poppy parade on the stamped flowers, the effect looks like watercolor and is really easy to do.
As you can see from the inside this is a Mothers Day Card....I actually made it for my mom pink is her favorite color, (now I'm just hoping she doesn't see this post, lol, or it will spoil the surprise). I do some of my best work when I'm creating for my loved ones.
For my second card I have a birthday greeting, I love the simplicity of it, crisp and clean, it was inspired by the mini thank you card it's pictured with that I liked so much that I decided to create a full size card with the same style/layout on the front. I also decorated the inside of this card and stamped a sentiment. Along the side I used the new edgelets die. I love them, if you don't have one yet it is a tool you would love too :)
