Erdem Inspired Pop-up Card

I loved the new Runway Inspired Challenge pic this week!  All the gold just shimmered away plus the great little pop of flowers here and there.  For my card, I couldn't find my Gold Smooch anywhere! :( Luckily I had an empty spritz bottle, some alchol, and some Gold Lame Smooch Accent Ink.  I shook out some of the ink into the bottle, added some alcohol, and Voila! Instant Smooch Spritz! :)


I added a fun swirly pop up on the inside for the Just Add Ink Pop Up Card Challenge.


Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Midnight Muse, Whisper White
Ink: Rose Red, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point
Stamps: Petite Pairs, Everything Eleanor
Accessories: Big Shot, Honeycomb Embossing Folder, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Dazzling Details, Gold Smooch Spritz

Have a fab day!

Soft & Subtle Birthday

I finally had some time to get inky yesterday and needed to add to my birthday stash.  I had some leftover vellum that had been textured with a diamond plate so I sponged on some colors in an ombre effect.  I added some flowers underneath and some Dazzling Details to the centers of the flowers on top of the vellum for a little sparkle.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Vellum
Ink: Bahama Breeze, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi
