Love

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! Another month that is just flying by.  I have a card to share with  you today using several Spellbinders products.


The base of the card is Neenah Solar White cardstock and the next layer is pink vellum. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA. The next layer was created with a Spellbinders A Gilded Life Rose Medallion Die. I cut several of the dies and adhered them to a cardstock that had been covered with a double-sided sheet of adhesive. I then adhered the Rose Medallion dies, staggering the design each line. Since the background was sticky and there were spaces in between, I covered the sheet with Doodlebug Sugar Coating so that it glitters. I then lightly brushed Spun Sugar Distress Ink over the top. The button on top of the ribbon is a Spellbinders Pagemaps Whimsy die.


A Spellbinders Gold Labels Four was cut with Neenah cardstock and adhered with foam tape for dimension. Another Gold Labels Four was cut in pink vellum and attached on top, followed by white tulle that was also cut with the Gold Labels Four.


For the focal point, I used a Spellbinders A Gilded Life Large Heart Bezel. I sanded it quite a bit to remove most of the color and then covered it with white acrylic paint. Once the paint dried, I added crackle medium. Once that dried, I covered it with Raw Sienna and Burnt Umber acrylic paint, wiping most of it off, leaving it in the cracks to accentuate them. For the inside of the bezel, I used a Spellbinders A Gilded Life Heart Die to cut a piece of Spellbinders Media Mixage Iridescent Translucents in pearl. Love is from JustRite Stamps Grateful Hearts Vintage Labels 2 stamp set. It was heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The bezels come with a clear plastic top, so I added some iridescent sequins inside and adhered the cover with Glossy Accents. Gems were added to the top.


The butterfly is a Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourish die. It was covered with Sugar Coating.


The flowers are Spellbinders Rose Creations dies. A touch of Spun Sugar Distress Ink was added to the edges, as well as some Sugar Coating. The leaves were cut in pink vellum and inked with Spun Sugar.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Spellbinders A Gilded Life Contest
  2. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
  3. DL.Art - August Linky 
  4. Little Scrap Pieces - Show it Off Saturday

  8. My sweetest friend, this is breathtaking! You've always been spectacular at designing with Spellbinders and that has not changed in the least. The layers are so beautiful and I love the touches of pink throughout. Your flowers look amazing and I adore every aspect of the focal point! That bezel is outstanding. I LOVE the tulle layer, of course. :o) I used crackle paint for the first time last night... it made me think of you! And now bezels are on my wish list, thanks to you! This is truly a stunner, my dearest Lisa. I don't even know what else to say. :o) Thank you for continually inspiring!

    Hugs and blessings,
    Karen
