Ornate Background and distress oxides

** WARNING** This post contains A LOT of pictures!! haha! I kind of went a little crazy the other night but what can I say when you have the MOJO you to roll with it. I used multiple products and will have them all listed down below.

A little side story - it was my mom's birthday the other day. I knew what date her birthday was but what I don't keep track of is what day I'm actually in lol. My days kind of all run together and unless there is an actual reminder alarm on my phone, I don't pay attention to the date. So .... being the cardmaker I am... I needed a card for my mom. Not only do I have a card for her but more to boot! I'm set for a couple years.

Since I have so many pictures, I'm going to try to keep the descriptions short. I did the same process for each one. I started with using Bristol Smooth cardstock and ink blending a variety of inks. I spritzed with water and also sprinkled on some Perfect Pearls and white paint splatter. Then I stamped this gorgeous Ornate background stamp from Simon Says Stamp onto the cardstock with Versafine. I originally stamped just one but was so in awe I kept making more!

Then I just stamped and heat embossed a bunch of sentiments and cut them out with their coordinating dies.

Brief Breakdown of each card - supplies listed down below.

Candid Apple, Wild Honey, Broken China, & Wilted Violet Distress Oxide. Hooray stamp/die from Neat & Tangled. Sentiment All Smiles stamp from My Favorite Things. Stamped in versamark  and heat embossing with Simon Says Stamp black embossing powder and again with WOW Black Twinkle Embossing Glitter.

 A lot of them I actually created on background but was able to trim it down to make two cards. Some I just didn't have the heart to cut. They are seriously stunning in person!

Thank you for staying with me throughout the post. It was a long one but definitely well worth it! These are so addicting !
