I've got two cards to share with you today. My first one features the super fun Background Basics and Borders set along with just the Speech Bubbles die collection. I embossed my background with clear embossing powder after stamping it with the fun chevron image. I then added several colors of Distress Inks and blended it out. The main panel is popped up on foam tape and has lots of dimension.


For my second card, I used the text image from the Background Basics and Borders set along with one of the dies from the Stitched Border Trio die set.. The Hello sentiment is from an older set, Happy Hello.  The stitching doesn't show up great in my photo but if you enlarge it, you can see it.



We hope you've enjoyed this release!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Both cards are great, Alanna, but my eye is really drawn to the chevron one. It's so colorful! You've been having a lot of fun with your inks. Love it! Have a great weekend!

I love your chevron card!! That turned out so cool! I love how the hello is cut out of the bubble so you can see the background too!

Really stunning creations!! I love the ombre effect on the top card and the background on the second with the wording! :)

Auntie Em said...

Your cards are so bold and happy! I like the way you did the chevrons to get the mix of colours. The paper with the embossed resist is so expensive and you are limited to the designs available but with your technique you can create whatever you want.
I like the white sequins on the Hello card. Just a sweet little hint of sparkle really sets it off.
Thanks for the great ideas! :)

Cute cards! The rainbow chevron background is great.

Kelly Flaherty said...

It seems that chevrons are everywhere lately and that can make a trend old. BUT, your background is amazing and it really makes the chevrons pop! Thanks. Oh, I really like the "hello" card too.

Both cards are so well done. I especially enjoyed how you created the multicolored chevron background on the first one.
