MTF Card Challenges - Sketch 312 & Color 60

Here are MTF Card Challenges - Sketch Challenge #312 and Color Challenge #60. Below are challenge photos:

I decided to make a card to attend these two challenges. My colleague Eric will leave our company in January 2017 to work for family business. Eric worked for me almost 9 years and I want to make a card for him on his farewell party. Below is the finished card (size 5 X 7):

I stamped the images from "Get Down to Business" set on white cardstock and watercolored them with ZIG Clean Color Real Brushes. Then mount the background on a piece of teal color cardstock. I stamped "You're in the business of excellence" on a stripe of black cardstock and white embossed it. I also stamped "Eric" on a piece of white circle cut out from a circle die and mount it on a stitched circle die. I assembled them onto the card and make the circle pop up by attaching it with foam tapes. Below is the inside of the card:

I white embossed the greetings on a white label and sponge the color with Distress ink pad. I also made a matching envelope and customized the name as well. Below is the matching envelope:

Hope he will love the card I made for him and wish him all the best in his future business.

Altenew - A Year In Review Inspiration Challenge

Here is Altenew's a year in review inspiration challenge, below are the challenge photos:

I picked the colors of March 2016 to make this card for the challenge:

I white embossed the stamps from the Golden Garden set on vellum, then I applied different shades of pink to red ink pads on the back of the vellum to make them blend together. I stamped the plant & snail images from Garden Grow set and colored with Copic markers. I cut a green circle of cardstock to mat it. Then I attached the vellum on the white card base and attached green circle on top of the vellum. Below is another look of the card:

Cardstock: MTF, Stampin' Up
Stamps: Altenew
Ink Pads: Versamark, MTF, Altenew
Others: white embossing powder, Copic markers, circle dies, vellum

Tis The Season

Here is Poppystamps Challenge #27 Oh Christmas Tree, below is the challenge photo:

And here is Simon Wednesday Challenge - Ice Inspiration, below is the challenge photo:

I decide to make a Christmas card to attend the above two challenges. Here is the card I made for these challenges:

I used Memory Box die - Tree Branch Circle to cut out the white card front. Then, I cut another circle of white cardstock and white embossed the Christmas tree (from Hero Arts). I applied different colors of Distress ink to resist the white Christmas tree. I attached this circle piece inside of the card to let it show through from card front. I stamped another Christmas tree with Hero Art ombre ink pad and cut it out. I attached this green tree in front of the circle die. I stamped the greeting "Tis the Season" (from Technique Tuesday) on black cardstock stripe and white embossed it. Finish the card by attaching the white snow (made by Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops) on the card. Below is the look of inside circle:

And here is another look of the card (love the dimensional layered look):

Cardstock: MTF, Stampin' Up
Stamps: Hero Arts, Technique Tuesday
