Embrace Happy Vibes Cards by Taheerah
Posted on 29 October 2016
Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! Taheerah here with you to share a couple more uplifting and inspiring cards created with some goodies from the Indigo Hills collection!
Everything about this collection lifts your soul - it's just so wonderful when supplies leave you feeling that way! The colours, the delicate watercolour-like look, the sentiments... it all just takes you to a place where you can just 'dream'. Whenever I've picked it up to create with I can't seem to stop the flood of happy, uplifting cards that follows!
With my projects today I decided to embrace the watercolour look that forms the current of the collection, and created my own watercolour backgrounds, using Distress Inks, as a starting point for my designs:
My first card features a clean, bold look - with a really impactful statement! I kept to blues, yellows and greys for my watercolouring, and used the Thickers from the collection to spell out 'Embrace'. The doubled up hearts (one chipboard, one puffy sticker) work perfectly and tie in with the spelled-out sentiment to say 'Embrace Love'. :)
My second card uses a much more 'piled on' look, with layers and embellishments galore:
This time my watercolour palette focused on the pinks and yellows and lilacs in the collection - with a little of the indigo thrown in via the splatter!
I added a piece of torn patterned vellum (that gold foil design - swoon!), some cardstock die cuts (tip: don't be afraid to cut apart some of your die cuts to make them go further or change up your design!), puffy stickers and one of the wood embellishments too - there's even a strip of patterned paper! I love the way all the different types of embellishments work so well together - a perfect marriage of style and pizzaz!
Hope you've loved these cards, have a great day!
