Get ready for it---this is the first two of FIVE cards I've made using Altenew's Beautiful Day stamp and die set!!! Yes, I just LOVE this one! Thankfully, my order of their new Spring Daisy came today, so I'll be giving Beautiful Day a rest! Haha!
Why is it that when I'm "up against the wall" for a card that it comes together much more quickly that when I have plenty of time to ponder it? We had a wedding to go to last Saturday and I had a couple hours to make a card. I thought, "Oh, that's plenty of time for this card I had in mind." LOL! Seriously, what was I thinking??? I had to take the photo on the kitchen counter on the way out the door!! Literally finished the last bit in the car!
I used part of the ribbon that was on her invitation which helped me choose the color for the rest of the card. I love those We R Memory Keepers Next Level embossing folders--the hearts are perfect! The sentiment is from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. I used Distress Stain in Tarnished Brass and a gold acrylic paint for the splatters. The brown stamping on the florals is Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink in Potting Soil.
Then I decided to make another card to have on hand in a different color. I used Simon Says Stamp inks in Lake Shores, Mint Candy and High Dive for this card.
I added some Wink of Stella and used Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins and droplets for some sparkle and shine!
Thank you so much for looking! :)
