I know what you're thinking - two cards in one day?? I actually had a moment to sit down and create a card this afternoon. I needed to make a card for a fellow demonstrator who has done so much for me and my small team over the last month. I also have been wanting to participate in a card challenge for The Crafty Carrot Collective.
It's a team of 5 worldwide demos that bring lots of techniques and tutorials. I've enjoyed their first month free - you can still check them out on facebook. Here's the challenge site.
The ladies in the group have been focusing on the stamp set Weather Together. I absolutely love this set. It was one of the first I saw back in June and I've enjoyed making a lot of umbrella cards with it. This time I wanted to try something different. I still used the stamp set - but I focused on the little hearts for the background. I wanted to combine two of the techniques shown this month...
Susan Wong created some really neat cards with a repetitive background and Cindy Schuster created a lovely watercolor look with ink & the clear blocks.
This sentiment comes from the Suite Sentiments stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. This set has 11 sentiments that coordinate with 7 different suites from the catalog. It is a MUST HAVE set! I love it!
I embossed the "friend" in gold which really gives this card an extra beautiful detail.
The hearts were embossed in clear before I added the watercolor background.
I hope that you like this card!
Have a wonderful weekend!
