Gel A Tins – The Simple Life card

19 Apr

I have made a very clean and simple card for you today.

I am using the set called WILD THINGS.

This has got to be my favorite Gel A Tins set!

I decided to go simple with my colors.

You can see my main color is white.

I have been working a lot with Grafix Arts paper products.

They have amazing Vellum and all my white paper is vellum.

(sorry you can see the adhesive, it must have been the time of night, since you can’t see the the adhesive indoors!)

I love how white embossing powder looks on white vellum!  So pretty!

 I also have used Grafix Arts Black Chipboard to make the frame for my sentiment. It is amazing, since it is black all the way through!  PERFECT for mounting and framing things!

 I wanted to create a peaceful setting with the placement of the flowers and butterflies..


 I thought this would be the perfect for someone going through a rough spot.  Someone who needed to take time out and enjoy the little things in life!

Simpler times!

(I think I need to mail the card to myself!!)

I hope you have enjoyed my project for today, this has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today’s post.


Sweet Stamp – Challenge #29 “White on White”

23 Aug

A new week means a new challenge!!! This week on the Sweet Stamps blog our new challenge is called “White on White.”

Here is what I came up with.

For this card I used the following items from the Sweet Stamp.com store.

Daisy Duo

Firewheel Duo

You are Loved

Slotted Flower Dies

Tropical Flourish

Tropical Leaves

XL Scalloped Circles

I started out with a Scalloped Circle card base.

On the card base, I started making different layers with the flowers, flourish etc.

The above picture is a close up of the tiny glass beads I attached to the middle of these flowers.

For the “White on White” challenge, you can only use WHITE paper and the only color can be in your ink.

If you are up for the challenge, come on over and join us.


Maybe you could be the winner of the $20.00 gift certificate to Sweet Stamps.com that one random person will win.
