[ Blog Hop Cards ]
I wrote product lists with brief instructions on how I made them for each. The first three cards are featuring You Are Background Stamp, Sentiment Strips Cheeky Love, Wedding Rings Die, and Valentines Word Mix 2 set.
< Card 1 >
You Are Background was stamped with Distress Oxide Iced Spruce, Big Picture Book Latte was cut from colored cardstock, on which I added more shades with dye inks, mounted on a piece of Vellum die-cut of Wonky Hearts.
I found that the Sentiment Strips are so easy to use and they look good on cards. You don't have to heat emboss stamps. Oh, it's a whole new world, isn't it? :)
As it is Valentine-themed, I embellished my cards with Clear Heart Drops. They are so cute and pretty!
< Card 2 >
Card 2 is very similar to the first one and I cut gorgeous Wedding Rings from gold mirror cardstock, red and silver glitter paper. I loved this sentiment so much! It would be perfect for wedding anniversary cards.
< Card 3 >
In my 3rd card, I made a pink background using DO Spun Sugar ink.
Other supplies are Schoolhouse Red cardstock, Peacock Teal cardstock, Stitched Banners, Stitched Rectangles, Valentines Word Mix 2 and Clear Heart Drops.
And....I love this sweet duo! :)
< Card 4 >
I have three more cards to share with you, which features You Are Loved dies from the Love You More Collection and here's the first one.
I wanted both lovely and pastoral moods on my card as we are waiting for spring, so this came up! The same You Are Background was cut with Framed Tags Waverly, and the Eucalyptus Leaves cuts were colored with Copic markers.
Making shaker cards is always my favorite thing to do, so this time was no exception. I have two shaker cards to share with you.
I had so much fun mixing and putting various sequins into the big shakers. I'm always fascinated by the sparkling beauties of sequins and beads. For backgrounds, I chose designed paper from Just A Little Lovely 6x6 pack, and I added some splatters onto each sheet.
Other Supplies: Lawn Acetate sheets, Heavyweight vellum, Sequins from Lucy's (Lilac, Hydrangea mix, Pink Moonstone), PPP Iridescent Mini Hearts Confetti
< Card 6 >
The last one is also a big shaker card with a few fun variations in color, sequins, and frames.
I used MME Framed Tags Park Avenue, Lucy's Lilac sequins, Crystal Clear Fusion Sequins, PPP Iridescent Hearts Confetti, Iridescent Mini Hearts Confetti, Gold Shimmer, and Cotton Candy Seed Beads,
Wrapping up today's post, I'm so in love with the tones, colors, and mood from this 5th card. Which one caught your eyes? :)
Here's the full hop list in case you've been lost.
