Beach wedding card

Good morning Everyone,

I hope you had a great weekend. A new week starts and it is time for the new Inky Paws Challenge #51. The theme is Tropical. You have until the 28th July to play along.

Here is my card as inspiration:

There are many weddings in the summer in Hungary as couples like to take advantage of the nice weather. Although we don’t have any beaches, I was itching to make a wedding scene on the beach with the kissing cats from the Newton’s Christmas Cuddles Newton’s Christmas Cuddles stamp set. I love to stretch my stamps and use them differently as they were intended.

I started with creating  beach scene using distress inks and the MFT beach scene builder dies. I die cut everything from watercolour cardstock and coloured with distress inks using sponge daubers. I added some Tsukineko Shimmer mist spray to the ocean in the background to get the sparkle of the sunrays reflecting on the water.

I stamped and coloured the kitties on Bristol Smooth cardstock and coloured them with Zig Clean colour real brush pens. I used a waterbrush to blend the colours better. I used some white tulle for the bride, I glued it under a tiny flower I stamped and cut from an image from the Aloha Newton set.

The sentiment (MFT Essential sentiments) is white heat embossed on a black thin strip of cardstock. After adhering the scene together, I used glossy accents to make some elements shiny and pop.

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Distress it too.

Hope you like my card and will play with us at the Inky Paws Challenge #51. It is such a fun one!

See you soon,


Inky Paws Challenge #50

Hello Everyone,

Today is my first post as a member of the Inky Paws Challenge Design team as the new challenge #50 starts. It is a colour challenge:


And here is my card for this challenge:


I started with stamping the pretty full flower image from the NND Fanciful florals set with Versamark ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I poured white embossing powder on it and heated it till it melted.  I repeated the process until I had a panel covered with shiny white flowers. Then I added Distress Oxide inks with a mini ink blending tool. I used Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade. I spritzed the panel with some water and dabbed it off with a paper towel.

I white heat embossed a sentiment from the same set on purple cardstock and gave it an orange mat. I used some Lawn Fawn Alphabet die (Cole’s ABC) to cut the rest of the sentiment from pink glitter paper.

I also made a scalloped white mat for the focal panel and adhered it to a pink A2 sized card front. I glued everything flat and embellished the sentiment banner with white matte enamel dots.

I hope you like my card and will play along with this fun colour combo on the Inky Paws Challenge blog.

See you there,
