Wonderful Day Card – Essentials by Ellen January 2106 Pinsights Challenge

e by e jan 2016 pinsights wonderful day poinsettias

This month’s Essentials by Ellen Pin Sights Challenge is all about reds.

e by e jan 2016 pinsights inspiration

I used the poinsettia image from the Mistletoe and Holly set to create a background in VersaFine Crimson Red and Satin Red (both embossed with clear embossing powder). I used the “day” part of “oh happy day” (Bold Blooms) and the “wishing you a wonderful” part of “wishing you a wonderful holiday season” (Mistletoe and Holly).

I am content with the final product – I think it would make a lovely card for a December birthday or wedding shower. Or even a nice Valentine, if the recipient is not fluent in floral classification.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Natural White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Real Red, inks – VersaFine Crimson Red, Onyx Black, Satin Red, dies – Spellbinders, crystals – EK Success Swarovski Elements, embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Ranger Liquid Platinum, organdy ribbon – Offray.

The latest Runway Inspired Challenge (ric#94) is based on the inspiration from Houghton Bridal.

The lace was my inspiration.

I die cut flowers and leaves from Shimmery White cardstock with the Bold Blooms dies (stand alone), and glued them individually onto white cardstock.

Here is my lace background:

I attached the lace background to a top fold card, and added a sentiment (platinum embossed on black).

Edited 11/3/2015: My card got selected as one of the Fabulous Fashionistas for the challenge. Thanks to the Runway team!

Supplies: Stamp – Paper Salon, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Shimmery White, ink – VersaFine Smoky Gray, dies – Essentials by Ellen, embossing powder – Ranger Liquid Platinum.

Sunflower Shower Card

Remember the sunflower project I was working on? My mother is attending a bridal shower for the lover of sunflowers, and this is what I came up with for a shower card.

I created a cute little scene, with heart shaped raindrops in translucent embossing paste falling on a smiling sunflower.

Here is a close up of the raindrops:

Gold Mirror Wedding Card – Runway Inspired Challenge ric#82

ric82 gold mirror anniversary

I loved the latest inspiration for the Runway Inspired Challenge ric#82 . Elegant.

I didn’t bust out any new ideas or techniques, just stayed elegant and classic. I embossed the gold mirror paper with an embossing folder, and was very happy that the embossing did not crack the paper or the finish.

Here is the inspiration look by Naeem Khan:
