 Back Again!

This 1st card will be entered into the 

Altenew Challenge

 I used the Altenew stamp and die sets, Amazing You.

Amalgam Black in.
Copic Markers.

 Back Vellum.
White Embossing Powder.
Mini Sequins.
Nuvo Drops.
Foam Dots.

This next card will be entered into the Challenge at

I took the Gina K Designs Rose Mini Slimline Plate 
and introduced it to my Glimmer Hot Foil Machine.
I think they got along very nicely!
Then I die cut the plate from stencil material so I could apply
my inks to the image.

The foiling is light and subtle, I think if I used a shim 
it would have created a bolder line.  
You can really see the deep pink foil when the light hits it just right.
Gina K Designs You Are Enough, sentiment.
Sizzix Stitched Circles and Labels die.
White Embossing Powder.

Double D, Shades Of Pink

                                                     Good Morning! 

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog

Here is your Inspiration Tile:

Shades Of Pink

I made a very easy, simple and quick card.

Here is what I created:

I used the Die Versions XOXO die, cut into my background paper 4 times.
Then I embossed the whole piece with a Hearts Embossing Folder.
Each cut out is backed in a different shade of Pink.

Adding a Heart Punch to each color of the corresponding XOXO.
A strip of Hearts Designer Paper to the right.

Added the same colors of punched Hearts to the inside.

Very Easy.
Very Simple.
Very Quick.

Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!

You'll be glad you did as there is always a pretty prize up for grabs!

Here's the prize for this Challenge: 

LOVED that you stopped by!
