On a bed of Bitty Big: Soft Stone patterned paper the pretty florals from  It's A sign: Love & Kindness take center stage..... along with the subtle stamping of the main sentiment, also in Soft Stone. 


The floral centers are stamped in a darker gray (Weathervane) and accented with a few petite pearls. 
Also adding a bit of texture is the Pierced Feature Frame die.

Fusion Card Challenge - 'Coffee'



Thanks for joining us for the latest Fusion Card Challenge, 'Coffee'. The amazing inspiration photo is a wonderful starting point. But that sketch is pretty great too! So, which will you try?
Both the beautiful sketch and the lovely photo inspired this little coffee-time creation. The embossed card base picks up on the wooden textures in the photo .....and the petite cups/spoon/sentiment (Altenew's Coffee Love), along with some pretty blue and green patterning, finish off this CAS card. 
The DT has provided some a-mazing inspiration, so be sure to hop on over and join the party! When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo as you jumping off point. OR, if you are feeling super duper clever, you can fuse 'em together.



We hope that you'll join in at the Fusion Card Challenge and will enjoy all of the loveliness from the DT and the always amazing gallery!


PROCEDURES:

1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.

Ink to Paper Transformation Tuesday!

Ink to Paper transformation tuesday!

Welcome to Ink to Paper's Transformation Tuesday! I love this opportunity to revisit a past project, which in this case is a gatefold card from the Ink to Paper June 2019 release. While my original card was quite 
summer-y, this new card incorporates softer, winter-inspired hues and a plethora of die cut florals and greenery to create a circular 'Peace on Earth' wreath.  A few petite pearls and Nuvo gloss drops are the finishing touches to the poinsettia and berries. 

Here's the original card from June 2019 (click HERE to see the post):



And the new makeover, in shades of Aqua Mist, Spring Moss and Weathervane:



I've chosen an Inside Greetings: Holiday Magic sentiment as my interior sentiment (and another of the Tag Creations: Modern Gift floral die cuts..... this time layering two of the smaller poinsettias) BUT this would also be the perfect spot for your Holiday 2019 family photo! Just stamp your sentiment(s) or hand written message on the right and/or left hand flap(s).


Although the Tag Creations: Modern Gift dies are currently OOS, but I believe that it will be well worth the wait,  as many of the lovely elements are season-less and and can be used for so many occasions!
