Merry Christmas!
Happy New Year!

Enduring Beauty Birthday

It is Thursday and I am back with a card for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  This week the challenge is a color challenge, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Pecan Pie.


I have been wanting to play with the Enduring Beauty bundle, coming in the 2024 January-April Mini Catalog.   This bundle contains a stamp set, dies and masks.  If you like coloring techniques then this bundle is for you.  So many ways to color the image.


I stamped the image in Pecan Pie ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I used the masks, Blending Brushes, and ink pads to color the flowers and leaves.  To get the different intensity of color, on the first application of Cherry Cobbler ink I brushed off some of the color before applying it to the mask.  When I colored the shading I brushed off less ink to get a darker color.  I did the same thing on the leaves with Old Olive ink.  The sentiment is from the Darling Details stamp set and was inked in Pecan Pie.  The fun embellishments are from the Opaque Faceted Gems, a FREE Sale-A-Bration choice with a $50 order (US).  The gems come in 2 sizes and 3 colors-Calypso Coral, Pecan Pie and Pool Party.  In total there are 150 adhesive backed gems.  Love this Sale-A-Bration choice.

The image is layered on Pecan Pie cardstock cut using the Perennial Postage dies.  Behind the Pecan Pie layer is a Very Vanilla cardstock layer that has been embossed using the Layered Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  This folder is gorgeous and embosses beautifully.   The card base is  4-1/4" x 11" Pecan Pie card stock.


Here you can see the embossed design of the Layered Florals a little better.   I did pop up the flowers using Stampin' Dimensionals.   I am so happy to have some large florals to play with!  


Inside i added another floral just to finish it off.  Isn't it so cool that there is shading on the flower, all courtesy of the Enduring Beauty Masks.

Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the Enduring Beauty bundle in the 2024 January-April Mini Catalog!
