Another Ellie

Today I have another ellie card to share. I wanted to practice coloring and am following Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge, so I made a card with the cute Wplus9 Elephant sets for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Special Lady/Girly".

I just stamped the images onto a cardstock panel and colored away. In the end I added little details with a white gel pen like Kathy likes to do. I added Wink of Stella to the balloon and Glossy Accents to the bubbles, but I wasn't able to capture it on photo. Here is a closer look:


Have a wonderful day everybody and thanks for stopping by!

Cupcake Inspirations

Hello! Winnie & Walter is one of the sponsors of the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #300 Celebrations and I had so much fun creating a card inspired by one of their photos. Here is the one I am talking about:



And here is the card I made:


I die-cut a panel of watercolor paper using the Winnie & Walter Essentials: Katharine Cutaways. Then I stamped and heat-embossed the cupcake and the sentiment from "Sugar Rush" using white embossing powder. I used Distress Inks mixed with water to color the background and the cupcake. Then I stamped the confetti dots from Scenery: Big Bang Confetti using various inks and adhered the panel to my cardbase. I finished the card off with sequins and a die-cut vellum star from Big Bang Confetti Cutaways.

Check out the challenge here! Thanks for stopping by!

Ready for Spring!

I am so ready for spring, how about you? I just had to create a card with pretty flowers to help me deal with the grey weather:


I made this inspired by the lovely images of the Altenew March Challenge: From Places Abroad. The flowers of the third photo were my main inspiration, but I also wanted to use vellum that was inspired by the second photo showing the beautiful glass door.
So I started the card with a piece of vellum and stamped and heat-embossed some vines from the Hennah Elements stamp set using white embossing powder. Then I adhered the panel to the card. Now I stamped and heat-embossed flowers and leaves from Whimsical Flowers onto cardstock and colored them using Distress Inks mixed with water. I cut them out and adhered them to the cardbase. Finally, I added clear sequins to finish the card off.
This month's Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday theme is "spring", so I'll enter it there, too.
Thanks for visiting!
