Both cards made were both inspired by the Color Hues #7 – Blue and Magenta Challenge and the Flower Challenge #51– Add Embellishments. I had so much fun making both cards because I got to use some new stamps that I got recently.
For my first card, I ink blended GKD Blue Denim on the top and magenta color from Craftsmart on the bottom. Next, I embossed MFT Floating Petals Background with Gold Embossing Powder. I die cut out the Birthday, and embossed the Happy onto the vellum. I taped the vellum on the back of the paper so it wouldn’t show through the vellum. Lastly, I attached a black cardstock to the back to give it a black border.
I’m not sure if Gold is considered as a third color or if it’s considered as a neutral for the Color Hue challenge. So, I decided to make a second card with Graciellie Design Start Anew Magnolias Digital Stamp.
I originally wanted to use watercolor on this, but for some reason the ink started to mix into my colors. I’m pretty new to digital stamps, so I’m assuming I have the wrong type of ink. I switched to colored pencils instead, and the sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co Words of Hope by Gracielle Design. I bordered the card and sentiment with blue cardstock and added some blue sequins from GKD.
I love the sentiment. You don’t have to give a gift to brighten someone’s day, a kind gesture would do.
