The Card Concept Challenge #100 !!!!!!!

Welcome to the 100th post here


We are so excited, that we thought we would celebrate
 by asking
Special Guests to play with us !



My special guest is the very talented

Owner and Creator of PAPER SWEETIES

Just look at her ADORABLE CARD!

Debbie was inspired by the pretty pinks and pumpkins!


Here is my card:


I was inspired by the pretty pinks and gold!





I used the Prima Metallic Accents watercolor cakes and Tim Holtz watercolor paper to make a pattern paper for the leaves.  I stamped and heat embossed the leaves with gold embossing powder. And then cut them out with thier matching dies,
I know, you usually don't see pink leaves, but I think they're pretty!

The white background panel was dry embossed with Stampin Up's  Ruffled Embossing Folder.
I LOVE this thing!


The sentiment is from the NEW Paper Sweeties October RELEASE called HAPPY FALL Y'ALL
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark onto some gold vellum paper and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder!

I think my style of this card would be considered 
Classy & Elegant:
Polished
Shiny finish
Sparkling embellishments
Rich color scheme
Sophisticated sentiments
Regal
Sweeping
Dramatic
Monochromatic
Layered Testures
Awe & Impress

Please feel free to use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.
All of the styles are explained HERE.

I hope I have inspired you to join us here at

PAPER SWEETIES SEPTEMBER 2018 SNEAK PEEKS!



WELCOME!

It's time for our NEW September Release here at PAPER SWEETIES!


This stamp set will be PERFECT for this time of year!
Here is a SNEAK PEEK!


I made my own background paper by stamping the images of this new stamp set over and over with Black Memento ink onto Neenah Classic 85 lb white card stock. This type of card stock is perfect for coloring all the images with Copic Markers.


 I used a NON Paper Sweetie product to die cut the frames.
It is a die by Simon Says Stamps called Frames.
I cut another piece of red card stock with this frame die as well. See how it also cuts a very thin frame that I inset to the stamped image frames.

d

I stamped the sentiments onto red, yellow and kraft cardstock and then cut them into strips. They are popped up with Foam tape. I just LOVE how this card turned out!

Please visit my very talented teammates for some more inspiration using this new Stamp Set!
