More cards for World Cardmaking Day

Here are two more cards I made for the World Cardmaking Day challenges held at Splitcoaststampers. The first one was a sketch challenge by Flourishes. I received my first Flourishes stamps last week and I have to say I am really enjoying them!

I started with a base of white and layered with some Pink Pirouette and then some My Minds Eye Abbey Road DSP. The next panel is Kiwi Kiss and more Abbey road. The white panel on top has been cut using the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities and embossed using the Moroccan Screen EF. The present stack and sentiment is from Flourishes' All Wrapped Up set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with markers and a blender pen. I then cut both the presents and sentiment out and adhered the sentiment and popped up the presents with foam tape. Finished off by adding a couple of pearls to the corners.

The next card was for the Crafty Secrets challenge to use a quote. I had to make a Twilight card for someone anyway so it seemed the logical choice since I don't own any stamps by that company.

I started with a base of black bazzill, layered with red bazzill, white (stamped with the flourish from Fictionally Inspired - Artful Inkables in Real Red) and then another panel of red embossed with the Diamond Plate EF. Across the join I added some black satin ribbon. The main panel has been stamped with the image from Into the Moonlight and the sentiment from Fictionally Inspired from Artful Inkables. I stamped on Watercolour paper and cut it out with Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities. coloured in with an aqua pen for the apple and blender for the other parts and lightly sponged the edges with Real Red. I popped the panel up on foam tape for a bit of dimension.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)
