Pocket Flowers with Hope

Hello, everyone! =) Here is a card that I made for the Pink Challenge over on the Paper Smooches Blog for October Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge.


The challenge theme was Pink because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I have a couple of card making friends that just went through some tough treatments and I have so much respect for them. I sure do hope that they find the cure for not just breast but all cancers one day!


The flowers are cut using the Pocket and Flowers dies and colored with watercolor.


The hope word is from the Religious Words 2 Dies set. I layered four of them back to back to create the dimension that I love and covered the word with Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen to give it a pretty glow.

That's all for now. For more inspirations using stamps and dies, please visit the Paper Smooches Blog! =)

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

I was definitely inspired by all the pretty fall leaves!

Mostlynaomi

Happy Friday, my friends! =) Here is my card for this week's Bellarific Friday Challenge over on the Stamping Bella Blog.


This week's challenge is to use circles on our cards and I decided to experiment with my Copic circles. =)


The image that I used is Mostlynaomi. She is stamped on a PTI Rustic White card base. After drawing a few circles with various sizes objects on my work table, I colored her with Copic markers.


I decided that I only want to color the circles and as they were overlapped with the image, I just colored the image parts that were within the circles. Hope you likey! =) The sentiment die is from Paper Smooches' Hello Words set.

That's all for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members and participants created for this week's challenge and see all the challenge details over on the Stamping Bella Blog! =)
