Welcome to another Fusion Card Challenge! I loved seeing all your creations with last week’s gorgeous colors and fun sketch. We have a fantastic group of talented participants at the Fusion challenge. 😉
Here is our challenge this week:
This one stumped me for a bit. I am LDS, so I don’t have much to do with coffee or tea, or even teacups! I don’t have one single teacup image in my stamp stash or my supplies. Not even a sticker or decorative paper. Zip, zilch, nada!
So, what I pulled from this photo was the repeated elements in different patterns and the bright, pretty color combo against the gray background.
Why I went with the ‘engagement’ theme, I have no idea. It just seemed fitting for a bunch of hearts, I suppose. It was either that or Valentine’s, and I don’t really need many Valentine cards, so I went with engagement congrats instead.
I used Basic Gray for the background, matted onto some True Black cardstock to frame it. I used the Heart Die set by Sweet & Sassy stamps to cut all the hearts from various PTI patterned papers. The layout comes directly from the product image at Sweet & Sassy stamps, which you can view HERE. I simply arranged them exactly as they appear in that graphic,… um,… just because I thought it looked like a fun arrangement, honestly.
Each of the hearts are popped up on dimensional adhesive for some depth, and I scattered a few rhinestones around. The sentiment lines are from PTI’s Congrats All Ways stamp set.
A little informal, as far as engagement cards go, I imagine. But I think I could find a cute little modern couple or bride who might like this.
Please stop by to see what the rest of the Fusion Design Team have created and to see the details for this challenge. I hope you’ll participate with us!
