I’ve been waiting for some cards to be received before I posted them here … now they’re in the hands of the people they were sent to, I can show you without spoiling any surprises! I don’t often do a multiple card post, so please bear with me as I figure out how to do it without being too repetitive! There are three cards … these first two will be heading for the same linkies …
On a white panel, I stamped the ‘fireworks’ in Delicata Gold, Brilliance Platinum and Brilliance Silver (they’re NBUS flower centres from Papertrey‘s Friendly Flowers). The sentiment’s from Winnie & Walter (Big, Bold, Happy), stamped in Versamark and embossed with Liquid Platinum EP. The top and bottom strips are also embossed with Liquid Platinum. I attached the panel and strips to the card base and added a scattering of sequins.
Another white panel, this time masked, stamped and silver embossed with Winnie & Walter‘s Big Bang Confetti stars, then sponged with Distress Inks to create a gradient. I cut the Avery Elle happy (NBUS) out of the panel, and another five times out of white cardstock, and stacked them up, finishing with the sponged/stamped layer. The ‘New Year’ is Lawn Fawn‘s Milo’s ABCs (NBUS), stamped and embossed in silver. I adhered a piece of printer paper behind the die cut so the happy could he slotted into place on the panel, then the panel was popped up on foam tape on the base card.
These two are destined for …
Darnell’s NBUS – Anything Goes (isn’t the lovely Darnell amazing … not only a fabulous challenge for reaching 700+ followers, which is so wonderful in itself, but as there have been so many entries, she’s upped the prizes from five to 10 US$25 gift vouchers … how generous is that! These are my second and third entries)
Winnie & Walter Birthday Bash – Gayatri’s CAS and Freestyle Collage challenge and Vanessa’s Gradient challenge (Congratulations on W&W’s first birthday, Julie and Shay … such fantastic and fun celebration challenges, thank you!)
Winnie & Walter Join In To Win – January (an ongoing challenge to use W&W’s fabulous goodies!)
SSS Monday – Old and New (First card – old: W&W sentiment, new: ‘fireworks’, second card – old: W&W stars/Distress Inks, new: die cut/sentiment)
SSS Wednesday – Something New (First card – ‘fireworks’, second card – die cut/sentiment)
Here’s my final card …
I used a Papertrey Happy Phrase Play die cut, selectively Versamarked it, and did some double embossing, first with silver EP, then with gold. I sponged the circle on the base card with Distress Inks, covered it with Wink of Stella and popped the Phrase Play up on foam tape over it. A scattering of sequins and gems were added and I cut a little tag with MFT‘s circle stax, stamped and silver embossed the W&W sentiment, added a few stars and left it to hang free from the ‘y’ with silver thread (courtesy of my lovely friend, Bev).
I’m playing along with …
Simply Create Too – Celebrate (New Year – in this part of France the opportunity to exchange good wishes for new year runs until the end of January … by that time most people have seen or spoken with everyone they needed to!)
Winnie & Walter Join in to Win – January (that little tag)
SSS Monday – Old and New (new: Phrase Play Happy, old: everything else)
SSS Wednesday – Something New (Phrase Play Happy)
