In the Mood

Hello, crafty friends! The Ton’s DT has some amazing cards to show off today. We are enrolled in Catherine Pooler’s latest class called In the Mood, which showcases beautiful mood boards put together by StampNation DT member Maureen Merritt. I used Catherine’s Mood Board Inspiration from here. If you feel your creative juices flowing, play along as well and link up to her blog!

I’m in love with mood boards. Certain color combinations can be so exquisite – like the one above! I wish I had more time to make more cards for you. 🙂 But I’ll leave you with this simple card featuring Heart Diamonds and the sentiment from our popular Pyrotechnics set. 

I started with some watercolor paper slightly smaller than size A2 and stamped the largest heart diamond outline with Ranger Archival black ink in rows. For the free watercoloring, I used the following Distress Inks: Dusty Concord, Peacock Feathers, and Picked Raspberry. 

I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark on black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I fussy cut around it and added it to the bottom with foam tape. Lastly, I taped the white cardstock piece over cardstock that matched with one of the colors. 

Thanks for visiting! Check out everyone else’s card to see how they were inspired by the gorgeous mood board.
