Yesterday at the Pink Paislee blog, my assignment was to choose a member from the Live Pink gallery who inspires me. Did you know Pink Paislee has a gallery where you can show off all of your fabulous Pink Paislee creations? You can find it HERE. I chose Mona Pendleton, because I just love her work! This is the piece that inspired my projects, a gorgeous frame she made with pretty embossed edges and a fun, carefree banner!
I quickly pulled out some of my new Cuttlebug embossing plates (borders). I wanted to create the embossed edges like the inspirational frame had. First I made this card:
I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder called Iron Works and ran my card through the Cuttlebug twice, once to get the bottom border embossed and then another time to emboss the top border, like the inspiration piece which had embossing around the edges of the design. (Actually, I should say DEbossed, because I did it backwards!) I cut my own banner shapes from the Daily Junque – Junque paper and strung them on with Daily Junque twine! I used some Soiree stamps for the sentiment and stars.
For the second card, I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder called Measure for Measure 7″ Border and placed it in the center of my card.
Daily Junque stamps (long border) and the Soiree stamps (banner and wording). The dimensional butterfly is created by punching 3 of them with my Martha Stewart punch with Daily Junque papers and layering them.
Hawaiian Shores ink by Papertrey Ink.
Then I ran my card through the Cuttlebug two more times to emboss the stars (made two rows of stars). The stars are from the Measure for Measure set again by Provo Craft. I embossed the stars on an angle.
A punched star was added from the Soiree – Words paper, a banner sticker from the Soiree Flags, and stamped “birthday” with the Soiree stamps (pin by Maya Road and pearl by Melissa Frances). I love the fresh white with the pretty colors, and the embossing adds a professional feel in a short amount of time - love that.
See you again soon!
