Good morning friends ~ It feels like I've been away from my craft room for a long time. Life was busy and then I got trigger finger in the thumb on my right hand and I couldn't move it at all, paired with lots of pain. Thankfully after a visit to the orthopedic and a steroid shot in my thumb, it's doing much better. I can move it again and the pain is subsiding. Just in time to join some amazing challenges.
Have you seen the photo inspiration for The Card Concept? Wow, is it stunning!
I was totally inspired by the pink and cream pumpkins dipped in gold. My style falls in to the category of "Classy & Elegant" I think... I hope.
I used Pretty Pumpkins from Sunny Studio. I love the layers these stamps have. I dipped the smallest pumpkin in gold embossing powder.
I also used the cake pedestal from PTI's Cloche Quarters and a frame from PTI's Boutique Borders ~ Love set. Sadly, this is discontinued but the frames are timeless and elegant. The sentiment is from PTI's Penned Elegance and was embossed in gold as well.
This next card was made for the PTI Create Along With Us challenge. I haven't played along in quite some time so I was happy for the opportunity to join in on the fun using this card from Amy Sheffer as inspiration.
I stamped a coodinating envelope too, inspired by Heather Nichols and their new set Pleasing Envelopes .
I'll also be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by!
