Last month I was one of the Top Two winners of "Imagine That Creative Playground" and along with the prize comes an opportunity to be a guest designer for the following month's challenge. Today I am sharing two cards made with one of the sets I chose, and then I will have another share using the second set I selected on May 16th when the mid month challenge inspiration is posted on their blog. By the way, the theme is "Anything Goes" and I am sure the "Imagine That Playground" team would love for you to join in!
Would you believe I didn't own a wedding stamp set already!! This one was perfect! The set is called Wedding Day. The image has been colored with copic markers on Xpress It blending card. The sentiment is part of the set. I just love the font of this sentiment. The card is mostly CAS. After coloring the image I added an Art Deco type frame which was part of this Hero Arts stamp kit, cut out with shiny silver card stock from the same kit. Pearls were added as embellishments and I mounted the card front on a Dove White 100lb card base.
Wedding Day set) on Vellum paper. While the ink was still wet, I sprinkled gold embossing powder over it and heat embossed. I wasn't sure if this was going to work, but it did perfectly and you would never know the ink under the gold was black and not versamark ink. The wedding cake from the same set was printed on Xpress It blending card and I kept it mostly white but added some pink roses using copic markers. Paper strips from my stash and half a paper doily finish off this card. Some pearls were added as embellishments because I think they go so well with wedding themed cards.

Your second is so different but also very beautiful, love the vellum and layers.
PS Thanks for your visit.
Thanks so much, Faith!Delete
Congrats on the GDT!!! These are STUNNING!! So elegant and beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Both cards are lovely Ellie - I love the Art Deco die cut on the top one.ReplyDelete
I have often printed on vellum and then embossed, but I have learnt that I get a better result if I print with yellow when embossing in gold.
Thanks Maxine. I'm so challenged when it comes to digis, and only know how to print in black and white (or whatever color it's originally done with). Might need to do some reading on other techniques. I was super happy that the gold embossing completely covered up the black printer ink!Delete
Beautiful cards - great to have you with us as a GDT.ReplyDelete
