PDCC52+WMSC20

The Play Date Cafe is celebrating their blog one year anniversary. I made a card for their challenge PDCC52.

I clear emboss the flower stamp on a piece of white cardstock and color the flowers with Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold Distress ink. Also color the stems with Shabby shutters Distress ink with brush. Adhere on a Kraft card base and ink up the edge with white ink. Tie ribbon and add another knot. Adhere pink flower.
Stamp sentiment circle with black dye ink and color with markers. Use glue pen to add glitters in the center. Punch out and use glue dot to adhere on pink flower.

Stamp: K5361 Flower Medley, CL139 Birthday Wishes-Hero Arts


2nd card made for WMSC#20
I stamp the polka dots from Polka Dot Basics II using yellow pigment ink on white cardstock and repeat until cover the whole paper. Adhere on Kraft card base. Trim a panel from yellow polka dot pattern paper. Circle twine 3 times and adhere. Adhere the panel on card. Stamp the butterfly with pigment ink on pattern paper and Cut out. Stamp the sentiment on die cut label and adhere on card.  

Stamp: F5158 Heart Winged Betterfly, CL139 Birthday Message-Hero Arts; Polka Dot BasicsII-PTI
