Now onto my projects. First up is a super quick and easy vintage inspired wedding card using the Fancy Frame stamp and die set. The set comes with a bunch of fabulous sentiments making it easy to whip up cards for any occasion in a few minutes!
I heat embossed the frame with some WOW! Embossing Powder (Primary Bark) and then inked and popped out the sentiment panel with some dimensional adhesive. The embossing adds a nice shine and glimmer to an otherwise simple design. The centers of the flowers were accented with some Viva Decor pearl paint.
For my next project, I started off creating a tag with one of my favourite recent releases (World Love set). While colouring the globe image I was thinking along the lines of Earth Day and went with a kraft and rustic theme. I stamped the people image in kraft ink onto my tag and coloured the hearts with a kraft toned marker. I added some wood buttons and garden twine.
