A Sweet Hello

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using  JustRite Sweet Posies and Spellbinders Mystical Embrace and Divine Eloquence
Good morning blog friends!  Today is day four of JustRite Papercrafts October releases.  So, I’m back to pink and frilly for this card.  I used a new background stamp called Sweet Vines Background along with Sweet Posies for my sentiment.  For the background I used Victorian Velvet distress ink and pressed it into slightly damp watercolor paper.  The ink diffuses just a little bit for this soft watercolor look.

I paired two of the Spellbinders Mystical Embrace die cuts together and on the top one I scored along the prominent top horizontal line and glued both pieces together.  On the insides (both top and bottom) of the card I inserted a cream panel the same size as the prominent rectangle in the template.  Then I layered up my stamped background and added a panel cut using Spellbinders A2 Divine Eloquence and Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG at the same time.  My sentiment was stamped in the oval frame and I went around the oval with some cotton trim.

    Hello Becca!!
    This is an absolutely beautiful card. I love the shades of pink and white/cream. I think this would be a beautiful birthday card which I hope to make for my daughter in law. You always come up with the most delicate looking cards that I believe anyone would be proud to have. I know I would.

    I really do appreciate your creativity.

    Hi Becca, stunning! stunning! stunning! Now I do not usually like Pink cards as Pink is not a favourite colour of mine but this is divine, so, so pretty. Love the mystical die and the Vine background, both are on my wish list which is getting longer by the day lol! I adore your bow too.

    Thank you for all your inspiration.

    Love & Hugs

    OMG! This is absolutely one of the most beautiful cards I have seen. I am always amazed at your talent! So Victorian and I love the color. It also answer a question I had about this background stamp when I was on the Just Rite site as I was not sure if the design or background would be in the ink color or paper color.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca. I am playing catch up so want to say that the new releases are all gorgeous. The watercolour card is beautiful, I love the effect it gives. The Oak leaves stamps look so good, those oranges, browns and greens are perfect together, and even thogh I prefer he hotter weather I love the colour we get in Autumn. Today’s card is so pretty, I love the Sweet Vines background and how you got the soft effect. Enjoy the new season : ) Take care.ReplyCancel

    Good morning Becca,
    This is so delicately elegant. It’s fabulous.

    I also have never heard of” World Card Making Day”, but as I make cards every day as a form of relaxation (and also because I need them for family and friends’ celebrations), I suppose I’m fulfilling the obligation to participate.

    I’ve just made a birthday card for an “Honorary” aunt who is 100 later this month and used a couple of your ideas Many thanks for your inspiration xx.ReplyCancel

    Becca your cards are just gorgeous, I look at your blog every day and you never fail to amaze me!
    I wish you had the time to do more videos but I can understand that you are very busy. You make me look at my dies in a totally different way and I now get much more use out of them. Yours and Sue Wilsons blogs are my daily card fix, you are so inspirational!!!ReplyCancel

    Good morning Becca,
    What a beautiful card the Mystical Embrace makes and well i am finding myself more and more a pink person as pink cards always look so pretty when done. I love your pretty cards like this one as it just looks so feminine and sweet. The sweetheart blossom flowers and the lace just finishes it off beautifully.
    Love and crafty hugs
