Be Happy

Today’s card started with the colourful background that I created using the Perfect Vine stencil and some Distress Oxide inks….I wanted the background to stand out so decided to use die cut words from black glitter cardstock for the sentiment…

On a piece of white watercolour cardstock, I placed the stencil and sponged in some Distress Oxide inks….I have used the shades – picked raspberry, squeezed lemonade and spiced marmalade…I then removed the stencil and used a mini spritzer to spray some perfect pearls mixed with water….this gives the background a nice effect as well as a lot of shine…once dry, I die cut the front panel from it using a dotted rectangle die and adhered it to a plain white card base…

Next, I die cut the words ‘be’ and ‘happy’ from black glitter cardstock as well as from black craft foam and layered them before adhering to my card front…I also added two black heat embossed and die cut leaves from vellum paper which I simply coloured in using a green marker…and to embellish my card I have used a few black Nuvo drops…

For this challenge we have been provided a picture for inspiration…I was quite inspired by the wallpaper and decided to use the colours and small stamps to create a repeat pattern to mimic the wallpaper…

On a piece of watercolour cardstock, I used small flowers and leaf stamps from Lawn Fawn blissful botanicals stamp set to create a pattern which could be easily repeated…I could’ve used a stamping tool but I used small stamping blocks instead…I heat embossed these images with a clear embossing powder and then painted the negative space with a light grey watercolour….

Once the watercolour was dry, I die cut the front panel from it using a large dotted rectangle die and then coloured in the images with my alcohol markers…I also applied some Nuvo sparkle marker for a bit of shine and adhered this panel to a plain white card base…
For the sentiment, I die cut the words happy and birthday twice from black cardstock and twice from the bright pink one….I I layered these together and adhered them on my card…I also applied some Nuvo glaze for a bit of shine..and finally to embellish my card I added some clear sequins…

Thanks

I loved this paper from Lawn Fawn and immediately wanted to use it for my card background….but I had to make the right choice in terms of stamps,embellishments, etc. so that I didn’t end up with a card in which the background or the images look out of place or mismatched…so I took a good amount of time to choose carefully,but after that,the card came together pretty quickly..

I used the large cross stitched rectangle die to die cut the front panel and adhered it to a plain white card base…then on a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the leaf images using Versamark ink and heat embossed them using some gold embossing powder…I coloured these embossed images with some Gansai Tambi gold watercolour and once dry,I die cut them with the coordinating dies…

I die cut the word ‘thanks’ using the big scripty word die from some white glitter cardstock as well as  twice from some white cardstock and layered them before adhering them to the card front…I then arranged the die cut leaves just above the sentiment..and finally to embellish my card I have added just three gold Nuvo drops…
