Pretty Petals & Mini Tutorial

This card was designed for todays Inpiration Challenge on SCS. I received my Inpiration from this photo Here I first stamped the Pretty Petals background in wild wasabi
I then stamped the Tres chic in choc chip craft ink, so I could use embossing powder and heat.


Next I used the rose only from Both way Blossoms. I used both regal rose, and riding hood red for the roses. Then used my aqua painter to blend.



Then I wanted to distress the background, so I used Vintage Photo ink and went around the edges , and then used the sponge to blend the color in.

All done :)


I then added my bow with a button to the top, and 2 flowers with pearls to the to the bottom :)


Supplies needed
  1. stamps from SU or any other company you choose.
  2. ink pads(riding hood red, regal rose, wild wasabi, choc chip in craft ink. Distressed ink "Vintage Photo") Right now you can save 15% off of the Tim Holtz distressed inks at Pez-A-Doodle Designs
  3. clear embossing powder and heat gun.

PDD Wednesday/ New Nesties Frame

This card was designed for todays PDD Wednesdays with Pez-A-Doodle Designs. On my card I used this Beautiful new Digi Nesties frame (there is another available in digi right now LINK ABOVE), should be out in Rubber soon!!!! Love the shape and the flowers, very very pretty!!!
I used the copics to color all the flowers, and leaves, and then used the stickles for the centers of the flowers. The sentiment is from SU and fits perfect. This card was super simple to make, I just printed out the frame, and colored, punched some holes to add my ribbon treaments to the corners and done!!!!
Hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday, and if you have a little time stop off and see the other DT's blogs to see what wonderful projects they have for today:)

Cheryl :)
