Winnie & Walter June/July Color combo challenge

Hi all!
Today I have a new card to share with you for the Winnie & Walter June/July challenge.


https://www.blog.winniewalter.com/2019/06/junejuly-color-combo-with-heather.html


First I blended some light gray with some dark gray to create a gradient look.

Next I stamped the Into The Woods stamp with Versamark and heat embossed it with Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder. I really love the way it shines!

Then I die cut a heart out of it and used the other stamp from the Into The Woods stamp set inside the heart.

Finally I die cut the sentiment and stacked it 2 times to give it some dimension. I also added some shimmer onto the sentiment with the Wink of Stella glitter brush.

Flamingo

Hi all!

It's been a while since I made a card because I was on a holiday to Sardinia.
Now I'm back and my fingers are itching to make some cards :)

I don't use distress inks often for stamping but for this card I did.
I was inspired by a friend who's foot is in plaster. His plaster is decorated with colorful tropical leaves so I used the Fine Ferns stamp set from Create A Smile to decorate the card.

The sentiment is from Carlijn Design and I also added a print and cut flamingo to finish of this summer card.

Stingray birthday card

Today's card is for my husband who's birthday is in 2 weeks.
He really loves stingrays and also got a couple of them a few months ago. I used the Oceans of Love stamp set from Heffy Doodle which is a stamp set I bought especially for him :p

The background is created with the waves stencil from SSS and some distress oxide inks. The border I created myself using my Silhouette Studio.
