Embellish Color Trends Challenge [Backgrounds]

Happy Friday, everyone!

Welcome to another fabulous challenge that Embellish has prepared for you…

Look at those fabulous images and colors! Don’t you get antsy? Well, I did since I saw this color combo, and I knew I had to use  Hero Arts stamps!  Their products  are great, and recently they’ve added a lot more fun stuff under the HERO HUES category…  ribbon, lace, buttons, gems, etc…:)  Well, the challenge requires you to include along with the color combo,  a stamped background… You see? challenges are not so difficult when you can have a lot of fun with them ;) There is a great prize… and you can find more details about  the challenge by clicking here :)

My card features a large cling background  stamp  called:  Thank You Definition. I simply stamped it on kraft cardstock using Versamark, then I heat-embossed it to make the text stand out a little more. I stamped some flowers from Laureldale Floral clear stamp set on terracota and turquoise cardstock, and heat embossed them as well. I used a couple of brads to make their centers.  I complemented my card with a  sentiment  from  Made With Love, which is a must have set 😉 To embellish my card, I added some pearls along with a piece of crochet ribbon, and twine…

Thanks So Much

  1. This is so pretty, Mariana!! I love the heat embossed flowers and how you’ve layered them! The stamped background is fabulous too, especially with the fabulous scalloped edge!!
