Card: Wedding Flourishes

Sorry for this super late post this week. My computer broke down and I was trying to edit the video in another computer, but without any avail. Then finally when I decide I would post without the video, the website kept crashing on me…anyway, I am finally putting up this weeks card, althought there is still no video. I do have the footage and once I get it editted I will add it to this post.

I got the inspiration for this card from a wedding outfit that my cousin wore at her reception. I had imagined the card to come out a lot prettier and gorgeous….but couldn’t quite make it so.

Here is a picture of my cousin looking absolutely GORGEOUS in this beautiful outfit:

and here is another close up picture of the card:

Making the card was quite simple, probably one of the quickest ones that I have made. I used a Hero Arts large backgroud stamp called “flourish background“.

 I masked off the rectangular greeting area with a post-it note and then stamped and gold embossed.

Then I simply stamped the greeting and gold embossed.

The flowers are punch outs of a small daisy punch. I used the same technique as in the previous card to make them look 3-D.

Finally I used Sakura stardust clear pen to color in the centers of the flowers and some parts of the flourishes.

Card: Birthday Cupcakes

Last week I made two birthday cards for my husband’s colleagues, so I thought I would share one of them. This is a very simple card, and I used a cupcake stamp set form Stampendous. I love this stamp set, the cupcakes are so cute! Making this card made me want to have some cupcakes! and the next thing I know, my husband got some for me! He later asked if they were as good as the ones in my card :)

so here is the video showing how I made this card:
