Hello everyone!! I am so excited for my first challenge post for The Ton!!! I am really new to this blogging thing, so please bear with me as I get my footing!!

The April challenge is “Anything Goes”. Here is the card I created…

I first stamped & heat embossed the stunning Dahlia Close Up Cling Background stamp on Bristol white cardstock with clear embossing ink & silver embossing powder. I then colored it with Zig markers & blended with a waterbrush. I die cut the panel & matted it with blue cardstock. The “Have an Amazing Day’ sentiment from the stamp set Thoughtful Poppies was stamped with embossing ink onto vellum (I didn’t want to cover up that magnificent flower!) & embossed in silver powder also. I wrapped the vellum around the bottom of the card, securing it with adhesive on the back. The panel was placed on a white card base. The final touch was some pearlescent sequins from the Cotton Candy Puff couture mix. That’s it!! A really quick card…mostly made while watching television with my hubby!!!! We’ll be married for 20 years this month!!

Here is a close-up of the card…

  1. Wow, I definitely paused and gawked when I saw your card. I’d love if you did a video so I could have a better chance at completely copying your technique! Stunning card and I will try my best to imitate. Thank you for the inspiration!
