Today I’m sharing a wedding card I made using Altenew “Peony bouquet” stamp set. These flowers are just gorgeous, aren’t they? I think they are perfect for elegant wedding cards.
First, I stamped the flowers and the sentiment (from Mama Elephant “Whale wishes” stamp set) on Arches watercolor paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed them using gold embossing powder. I did some masking to have some leaves and flowers behind the big flower. I wanted to color the flowers in some way to get a pearly effect, so I smushed Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress inks on a laminated paper and mixed the inks with Perfect Pearls. Then I colored everything using these homemade pearlescent watercolors. I love the shiny look, it’s so beautiful!
Then, I added Antique Linen Distress ink around the flowers to give some depth. Finally, I adhered the front panel to a blue card base using double sided tape. As you can see, I made a coordinating envelope stamping the big flower and heat embossing it with gold embossing powder.

Today I have a birthday card I made a while ago for my sister. Besides, this is my first window shaker card!!
I die cut a star from square pieces of bristol paper, fun foam and a card base using Lawn Fawn “Puffy stars” dies. I applied Cracked Pistachio Distress ink to the front panel. For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant “Make a wish” stamp set using VersaFine onyx black ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Then I applied Abandoned Coral Distress ink.
I adhered the front panel to the acetate and then the fun foam to it and filled the shaker with a mixture of Lucy’s Things “Winter mint sparkly shaker selection” and “Twinkle lights sparkly shaker selection”, and adhered the back of the shaker to another piece of acetate and to the card base.
For a final touch I adhered some sequins and confetti to the front panel and to the inside of the card.
I’m happy with this card. I think it turned out quite well to be my first shaker card.
And here is the happy birthday girl 🙂
Thanks for stoping by!
The current Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday Challenges theme is “Thinking of you” and, as I did this card thinking of my sister, I’m entering this card on both challenges.
This is my second entry today and for this card I also used Lawn Fawn “Thankful mice” because I’m in love with these cute mice ❤
For the background I used the emboss resist technique. I stamped the small triangles from Lawn Fawn “Sharp backdrops” stamp set with VersaMark ink on Canson Bristol paper and heat embossed everything using clear embossing powder. Then, I inked the panel with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink.
I cut out the polaroid frame from Bristol paper and I used Antique Linen Distress ink to give it the look of an old picture. For the scene, I did some masking to make the grassy hill and the sky using Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers Distress inks. Then, I stamped the mice and the cheese on Bristol paper with VersaMark onyx black ink and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.
For the sentiment I used the lovely caligraphy letters stamp set “Escríbeme” by La Vida en Scrap. I love this set! Finally I adhered everything together with foam tape and double sided tape.
I hope you like it! Have a wonderful day!
