This week's tutorial is to use colored pencils with a stencil. The tutorial can be found here. For my card, I used a paper punch to create my stencil. I punched a piece on cardstock and used it as a stencil. I used the sentiment from the new stamp set Roses from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. This sentiment is perfect for my background.
This was an easy peasy tutorial to follow. You can create a stencil with different elements and no 2 cards are a like.

Today I created a wedding card for a friend. She asked me to create a card for her niece. The wedding colors are eggplant, turquoise, and green. I found some metallic paper to fit the color scheme. I used the new Everyday Die'sire "Romance" create-a-card die. This die is awesome for this project. It die cuts and embosses. My stamp sets are also from Crafter's Companion. The sets are Love is all you need and Friends and Family . I stamped the outside sentiment with Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink and embossed with Extreme Peacock embossing powder. The inside sentiment is stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used Prima flowers to adorn the outside of the card. This was a very easy card to design. It is an elegant looking card.
Congratulations Emily on your upcoming wedding!!

This week's challenge at mfpSpeedyTV was "flower pounding". The tutorial was easy to follow but for me very hard to do. We have been having a lot of rain here and my flowers seemed too juicy.
Here is a picture of the first flower I tried with the pounding:
I did not like it at all!! So I tried again and I used my crock and placed the paper and flower under the crock over night.
Here is the crock:
My finished cardstock looks like this:
My supplies: Tiger Lily stamp from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. , Gina K cardstock, watercolor paper, Spellbinder's A2 Filigree Delight, Memento Elderberry Inkpad, and E6000 spray adhesive.
