The Challenge #78

Good Morning and welcome to The Challenge, we are in week three for this month with a photo inspiration.

I made this card way more difficult that it needed to be :) but I seem to be getting my inspiration from techniques these past few weeks.  So will some emboss resist and colour blending I was pretty happy with how my card turned out.

I have these adorable little pineapple charms in my stash, I tried 3 times to make it work for this challenge before I gave up. My inspiration became the beautiful and bright flowers. Our local grocery store has some beautiful sunflowers for sale, I have loved having them on my counter so I wanted to try to recreate that for my card.

I started with heat embossing a panel of white cardstock, clear embossing powder and a script background. I then stamped the jar and flowers over top of that in archival ink and did some ink blending. I fussy cut the flowers and far out, the jar is popped up with foam tape as well as one of the flowers. I stamped the background panel with the same script stamp but in light grey and finished with some black gems.

Supplies: White and black card stock, Kaiser Craft - Background Script. Verve - Lean on Me, Recollections, Jar, gems.

Be sure to stop by The Challenge blog to play along, the Design Team has some wonderful inspiration to share.

Thanks for visiting,


  1. Very pretty. Love the flowers with the script embossing.

  2. Love your card ...girl I need lessons please.

  3. Nina I think your script embossing is "just the ticket" - its an addition that would not have occurred to me but would steal from you for a future project. Lovely colors!

  4. Beautiful shaded coloring - and I love the details of the script on each one.
