Just For You - CAS-ual Fridays CFC133

Here is CAS-ual Fridays CFC133 challenge - Summer Lovin'. Below is the challenge photo:

I decided to make a heart image background using the heart stencil from Simon Says Stamp. First, I applied different shades of pink, red, and purple Distress Ink on the white cardstock. Then, I spray water on the heart stencil, then "stamp" the stencil on the Distress Ink background. It creates a pretty water stained heart image background. Below is the finished card:

The "Just For You" is the stamp from Altenew's Label Love stamp set. The three little hearts were cut out from the heart die cut. I die cut these three hearts with white cardstock, then colored them with different colors of Distress Ink pads to match the background colors. I applied Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the hearts, and put Glossy Accents on each heart to make them as my own hand-made embellishment. Here is a closer look of these little hearts. Do they look like the little heart jellies?

Stamps: Altenew
Ink Pads: Distress Ink pads, Versafine

Lawnscaping Challenge #83 - Embossing

Here is the Lawnscaping Challenge - Embossing, either heat or dry embossing to create something amazing. Below is the challenge photo:

And here is the card I made with Let's Roll stamp set:

I heat embossed all images with white, black, and gold embossing powder. Then, I colored them with Distress ink using water brush (The chopsticks were colored with the gold Wink of Stella pen). After coloring, I cut each image and adhere on the wood grain embossed circle paper. To create a dimensional look, some of the images adhered with clear foam dots. For the background, I heat embossed the little flowers with pink embossing powder. The greeting was stamped on the white cardstock and cut out with a circle die. The finish touch is to use the pink Distress ink pad and mini blending tool to brush all the edges of the circles and card background.

Cardstock: PTI (white)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn
Ink Pads: Distress Ink pads, Versafine, Versamark
Others: embossing powder, foam dots, Wink of Stella pen
