I’ve got two cards for the W&W WCMD challenge entries and another that qualifies for Crazy 4 Challenges as well! So it’s a triple bill today!
First up, this card works for the W&W CAS challenge, the background challenge, the rainbow challenge AND for C4C! This week our challenge was to be inspired by dessert! I am always up for some dessert! I feel terrible that I don’t have any W&W products for my cards but I hope to get some really soon! Thanks for opening your challenges to any products!
For this card I used Ice Cream Dream by Simon Says Stamp which I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white on Bristol smooth cardstock. Then I used my Gansai Tambi watercolours to add deliciousness to these images! For the popsicle sticks and the ice cream cones I added some gold watercolour to the shade I mixed giving them some shine. When I was finished I also added some shimmer spritz over the entire panel.
Next up is a silver butterfly card for the W&W stenciling challenge. I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil for the background adding Distress inks in Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers. The die I cut in vellum is also by SSS and alongside it I arranged lots of sequins and Nuvo drops in Duck Egg blue. The butterfly die (Memory Box) was cut from a scrap of white cardstock to which I then added some glue that never fully dries but rather remains tacky. Then I added some silver gilding flakes. It’s a bit hard to remove the excess from such a delicate die cut so I placed it back in the die. As the die cut settles down into the grooves of the die, the excess sticks up and it has an edge against which you can brush off the extra!
Last but not least is my entry for the background challenge. This simple embossed resist with watercolour turned out better than I could have expected. And the Steel Navy embossing powder by SSS is exquisite! My new fave for sure! The die is by Papertrey which I cut with some navy cardstock. Then I added 3 layers of powder to get a really nice rounded effect that looks a lot like an epoxy word sticker! a few sequins finished it off nicely.
I hope you will play along with our challenge this week at Crazy 4 Challenges. I know it’s a busy time for anyone making holiday gifts but hopefully you can find an hour or two to spare!
