Watercolor Birthday Cake





I designed this card for the Inspired By All The Little Things Challenge #84.  I saw this challenge several days ago and I had so many ideas that I needed to ponder my card for a while.  I knew I wanted to make a birthday card and yesterday I decided to use my just purchased gold embossing powder for a watercolor card.  I designed it for my girly-girl sister's upcoming birthday.

Happy Day Concord and 9th Stamp set.

Here is the inspiration graphic:

For my card, I focused on:

  • The Cake Theme
  • The Pink, Turquoise/Aqua, Purple Color Scheme

Happy Day Stamps by Concord & 9th

This is my first time using this new to me stamp set - Happy Day from Concord & 9th.  I used Daniel Smith watercolors in Quinacrindone Pink, Quinacrindone Purple, Ultramarine Turquoise, and Green Gold.  The embossing powder is Ranger Princess Gold.



I am looking forward to giving this card to my sister.

UPDATE:
I am very excited that my card was chosen "Inspiring Stand Out" in the Inspired by All The Little Things" challenge!

Mother's Day Card

I am very excited about the Mother's Day card I created for my Mom.  I used the In Bloom Stamp Set from Create a Smile.
Handmade Mother's Day Card


I colored the flowers with Copic Markers and then fussy cut them out.  On card stock I added some paint splatters and then adhered each piece with adhesive foam squares.    Next, I embossed the sentiment (Hero Arts) on a strip of black card stock and then mounted on the card.  I am happy with the card and can't wait to share with my mother.

I am entering the card in the Create A Smile Challenge:
Create A Smile Floral Challenge

Update:
I am very excited that I was chosen as the winner in this Challenge!


Thanks for stopping by.
