WWC257 - Heidi's Challenge: Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist

Yay, it's my turn as a host for our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge!  This week it's Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist.  Such fun!  With Valentine's Day looming closer and closer, guess what type of card I've made this week.

I've used a base of Heavy Whisper White cardstock for this card.  Then I added a layer of gorgeous (retired) Lovely Lipstick Foil followed by another layer of Whisper White cardstock.  That finaly layer of white, however, went through some heavy changes before becoming part of the card.  For that stunning heart, I used one of the Gina Marie dies.  I love that the flower cuts at the same time as all those intersecting lines and only the petals can be curled up to bring more attention to it.

Of course I not only curled up those petals, but also covered them with a layer of the sparkly Wink of Stella.  For the centre of the flower, I added a retired Dahlia embellishment to which I added a few spots of silver with my Silver Liquid Pearls.

I used a sentiment from the Altenew Dotted Blooms set and heat embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder.  The arrow is from another Gina Marie die set and is cut from the Lovely Lipstick foil.

As a finishing touch, I used another Gina Marie die: the "Love" in that beautiful script.  I think it's perfect cut out of the Silver foil to balance the Silver embossing, don't you?

I love the way these colours work together and also how perfectly the dies came together as well.  I hope you do, too.

We also have some awesome samples by the other Watercooler Artists for you to check out over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

  5. Love this card, Heidi; awesome and exquisite! Beautiful job.
    By the way, what is the name of the Gina-Marie die and is it still available? Thanks.

    1. I've checked the back of the envelope the die comes in and, outside of their address and assurance that the products are top quality and made in the USA, there is nothing to hint at a name for the die. I went to the Gina Marie site and hit the "add to cart" when a die caught my fancy. Since I've only gotten the dies in the past year, I am reasonably sure they are still available. :)

  6. This is stunning! Thanks so much for linking up to the Double D's "hearts" challenge. Best of luck to you!

  7. Wow this is fantastic - i really love it!
