D2BA Catch Your Dream

D2BA Catch Your Dream

Hiya Friends! Happy Monday to you all! Today I am sharing a card about a simple reminder to Catch Your Dreams. With 2 of my 4 girls off to college, several hours away, I like to snail mail them little encouragements here and there. This one fits the bill perfectly!

This card also fit the challenge over at The Canvas Corp., with a feather theme. You can check out and/or enter the challenge here. Search #ccbchallenge on social media outlets to find other entries! Be sure to tag your own as well!

Watercolor Dahlia Thanks

Watercolor Dahlia Thanks

Welcome to today’s installment of cardmaking! This is just the beginning of a week full of awesomeness with products by The Ton Stamps. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to have been invited as a design team member. I have long featured their products here on my blog because I just adore them. For me, this invitation is icing on the cake!

To create this card I first began by watercoloring the Dahlia Close-up heat embossed image. Next, I heat embossed a Brushed Thanks chipboard die cut 7 times (yes 7!) with a dark purple metallic embossing powder for a metal like appearance. I then die cut “Thank” at an angle across the trimmed A2 watercolor piece and again at the same position across an A2 white panel. I assembled the opposite top and bottom panels for a two toned effect. Then stamped the sentiment with Violet Fringe and Grape Crush Couture Color ink to create the perfect match to the purple embossing powder. Last, drop the “Thank” die cut into the recessed area that remains and adhere Dew Drops for the perfect finish.

You can find this card as design team inspiration over at The Ton Stamps Challenge Blog. This month the cue word is “Anything Goes”. Up for grabs is a $50 gift certificate to The Ton Stamps retail shop.

Come play along and see what all the fuss is about! And even if you choose not to enter, it is a great place to check out inspiration created with The Ton products by the design team and by all the entrants. View contestant entries or enter your own by clicking the blue froggy InLinkz button near the bottom of the post. You can also search Instagram and Facebook using #thetonchallenge!

Thanks to you for popping in and taking the time to read about my latest Creative Bliss!
