This is the final weekend for the Outstanding Occasions challenge! We will have a brand new challenge for you on Monday, but for now we have the most awesome inspiration for you by team member, Jessica! Her bright and bold design is a perfectly unique wedding card!
Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Outstanding Occasions challenge! I realized recently that my wedding and anniversary card stash was getting low so I figured I’d use the challenge to build up my stash again!
I love puns and thought it would be fun to build a card around ‘meow and furever’ for a cat-loving friend! To start I blended picked raspberry and festive berries distress oxide ink onto a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock. I let it dry and then die-cut my sentiment from Finley’s ABCs and the Hearts die set. I arranged my letters to get a two tone effect from the ink colors and then die-cut the hearts from just one color. I adhered them to a white card base and used Milo’s ABCs and A Bug Deal to complete the sentiment.
Next I stamped the images from Meow You Doin’ and Bicycle Built for You with Copic friendly Jet Black ink. I colored them with Copic markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies. I used toner grays for the cats and then RV and cool greys for the rest of the images to keep the palette simple. The RV shades matched my distress inked hearts nicely! I added the cats and accessories to my card and finished it with a few white gel pen accents!
And that’s it! You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend! –Jess

Good morning! Jess here with a sparkly and cozy card for our current Inspiration Board challenge!
I loved the glittery photo in the Inspiration Board and decided to use that as my inspiration (as well as just the general sweet and cozy feel)! I started by applying liquid glue in a loose wash to a piece of white cardstock. Then I sprinkled it liberally with Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter and Prisma Glitter. I pressed it into the glue and added a little more Prisma Glitter until I couldn’t feel any stickiness from the adhesive. Finally I placed a piece of copy paper over the glitter and used a bone folder to burnish the glitter into the cardstock before setting it aside to dry completely. While it was drying I stamped the Pumpkin Spice mug, colored it with Copic markers, then die-cut it with the coordinating die.
I stamped the sentiment from Baaah Humbug onto Lucky Penny patterned paper from Watercolor Wishes with Versafine ink and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder before trimming it down to a fishtail banner. I trimmed the white panel down and adhered it to a card base using the same Lucky Penny paper. Then I added the mug and sentiment with foam mounting tape. Finally I die-cut a pink Heart and added it to finish the card!
And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty and use our Challenge 21 badge as inspiration for your creations! I can’t wait to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
