Hello, Hello

I have some exciting news to share -- I finally came up with a watermark!! You must be thinking that I'm crazy. Haha. I don't know why I waited this long. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen this sneak peek of a few cards I made recently. When I'm crafting, my desk gets really messy so I figure I should make as many cards as I can before I need to clean up. I really don't like messy desks. I'm going to share two of the cards today.


I love Altenew stamps. I used Hennah Elements and the Halftone Hello die for this card. That fabulous pattern paper? It's from this paper pad. I LOVE IT. 


I stamped the flowers on white cardstock with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it in gold. I used distress markers to color in the centers and left the outer petals white. I die-cut the word 'hello' using the larger die from a metallic gold cardstock and also double-sided foam sheets so that I didn't have to struggle with adding tiny foam dots on the back. I added the flowers with foam tape and the word hello over the pattern paper. I added a few drops of Irresistible Pico Embellisher in Gold and Wedding Dress


And here's my second card:


This card was inspired by Yana's post here. She's such a creative lady! I used Whimsical Flowers and Halftone Hello. Like Yana, I stamped the hello in the center so I could stamp the flowers around it. I stamped some of the solid flowers using WPlus9 inks. Then I stamped the outline stamp in VersaMark and heat embossed it in gold (no, seriously, obsessed with gold embossing! I might have to get more shades!)


I don't know if you can see, but I stamped the 'hello' again in VersaMark and heat embossed it in clear to give it a shine. I die-cut the white cardstock using the scalloped outline die from Sunshine Layers and added it to a metallic gold cardstock. The white piece was added with foam tape - again, I love dimension! ;-) 


What do you think?? I'll be back tomorrow with full views of my other two cards! Don't forget to check out my post on The Ton blog today and my post on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog from yesterday! Thanks so much for your sweet comments!!
