Lots of gold and some glitter - October Release Inspiration

Hello everyone! It's Juhi with my second post for October. My first card is a birthday card for my daughter who is turning 5 in December.
Watercolor card with Pee-a-boo stamps and Dies by Juhi
To created the watercolor background, I cut out the number dies on masking paper and stuck them randomly on watercolor paper, leaving some space in the middle for the number '5'.
I then painted the background in pink and orange Gansai Tambi watercolors.
I peeled off the digits once the watercolor dried, some paint did seep under the digits giving the background a beautiful watercolor wash effect! I finally cut out the '5' in gold and stuck it along with some gold thread and sequins and also heat embossed the sentiment in gold.
I hope my daughter likes the card :)

I followed exactly the same process to make the watercolor background of this Thank you card.

Don't you just love the gold against the turquoise? I just love how this one turned out!

I used my favorite "Border Frenzy" die from the month's release. I just can't get enough of this how it lets you add interest without extra bulk, perfect for CAS cards.
I created the background by stamping the broad stripes from the "It's Plaid Time" set in white followed by red inks. I then added the fancy stitches with the "Border Frenzy" die.
For the glitter heart I used the "Shaker Love" Die.
Well that's it from me for now, I hope you find inspiration in my projects! Thank you so much for stopping by today.
