On Your Engagement

June 13, 2014

Happy Friday, blog friends!!  How are you doing today?  I'm doing well.  I have an engagement session this evening, which I'm excited for!  It's been awhile since I've had a photo shoot, and I am ready to get back into the swing of things!

Before I share my card today, I just wanted to remind you that I have a giveaway on THIS POST.  A Glitz Design "77" 12x12 collection pack is up for grabs...I will announce the winner this coming weekend! Check out that post & leave a comment for your chance to win!

Today I have a card to share with you using my Scraptastic Club June kits and some Winnie & Walter stamps.  I received the Best Day of my Life kit & add-on from Scraptastic this month, and they are full Allison Kreft's Capture Life by Echo Park.  I LOVE this collection, and am so excited to get to use it this month!  The kits also paired so perfectly with some of my Winnie & Walter stamps, that I just had to do a post combing them!  {This is also my first card as an official part of the Winnie & Walter talent!!  How exciting!!}
Instructions to recreate:
1. Cut an A2 card from bokeh patterned paper.
2. Adhere a tag & strip of patterned paper across it at an angle.
3. Tuck vellum scallops underneath the top of the paper strip.
4. Add a vellum strip to the bottom of the paper strip.
5. Stamp & heat emboss the word "Congrats!" along the top of the strip.
6. Add the glittered letter stickers below it to continue the sentiment.
7. Stamp & heat emboss the word "engagement" underneath the letter stickers to finish the sentiment.
8. Zig-zag stitch along the top & bottom of the angled paper strip.
9. Add sticker arrows to the top of the paper strip.
10. Accent with a heart sticker & enamel dots to finish.

Card Challenges:
-Freshly Made Sketches #140 - sketch
-Color Throwdown #296 - color challenge
-The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge - wedding
-Charisma Cardz #13 - glitter

Winnie & Walter also has it's own Playdate #2 challenge going on right now, which is a color challenge!  My card mostly fits it, except that I used mint green instead of leaf green.  There are still a couple of days left to enter, and the winner gets a guest design spot with us in July!!  {Which means you get ALL of the stamps released that month & you get to participate with us for the release.  Pretty awesome prize, don't you think.?!!}  I would love for you to join us in the challenge, and see what you create!

That is everything that I have for you today!  I hope that you enjoyed my card!  Have a super great Friday and start to your weekend!

Until later,
