The Card Concept #18 – Back to School Theme

Hello folks!
It is time for a NEW challenge at The Card Concept! Check out the gorgeous inspiration below:
And… here is what I came up with:
20140901-01As part of the wild card team, I am to create a card in the Shabby Chic style. Making shabby chic card with back to school theme? Oh…My… I was very concerned about it. But finally I found the great word ‘JOYFUL’. School life is full of happy & fun and it means there are lots of joyful moments like holding a bunch of beautiful flowers! Woo hoo!! These two is different kinds but the same feelings :D Hahaha~~

I chose two beautiful pattern papers from BasicGrey aspen frost collection pack – I used pattern papers after a long time – and put two pieces of paper together and then of course distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. I then added more white acrylic paint on top till I had the look I wanted. Next, I decorated with several red & white roses, swirly leaves and white thread together.

20140901-02For the sentiment, I was so glad I found perfect stamps for back to school theme from Mama Elephant Today Was Stamp Set. “MON, TUE, WED, THU, FRI. full of laughs, so much fun” Phew~~~ Mama Elephant saved me lol!

20140901-03I hope you enjoyed my modern shabby chic style! :D

Blooming Today!

Hello folks,
Today, I made my friend’s birthday card with gorgeous Blooming stamps by Clearly Besotted. I love flower stamps very much indeed!!

Here is my card:
I like yellow and grey colour combinations. It looks so modern, clean, and bold :D

I stamped roses, leaves, and several different sized circles as background patterns in VersaFine Pigment Ink Smokey Grey at first and stamped one rose in yellow stand out in other petals. I then chose ‘Hello beautiful’ sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Summer Garden and heat embossed it with Ranger Embossing Powder Seaform White. At the bottom of the card, I sponged white cardstock in Distress Ink Mustard Seed and added water splatters for fun!

20140630-02Oh! one more main part of my supplies! I used ‘Zig Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Clear’ on the yellow rose petals.
