Gorguss Girl Challenge Embellishments

Hi and thank you for stopping by!
I am sharing some goodies made for a challenge on YouTube. 
The challenge was Gorguss Girl themed, and I could not resist participating, as I love all-things Gorguss Girl related.

All packaging was handmade by yours truly.

We were asked to submit embellishments in sets of 4 as an option to enter. They were to be 2 inches in size, or approximate.
 I chose to keep it simple and here are my results: 
Love Squared Dies from Bo Bunny
My first little batch were these adorable Scalloped square embellishments made with a Hipster Giraffe (Cricut Design Space) all glimmered and glossed, and a layered flower die from my stash. To make them stand out a bit, I used Ranger Oxide inks to give them a soft hint of color, and then added the Love sentiment, as well as the pearls.

GOR503011 Dies and Stamps, CBD004 Perfectly Layered Dotted Daisies

My second set was a small whimsical banner, made with four layered Dotted Daisies. The centers are all Gorguss Girl related, and glossy. The flowers lay atop a banner made with Detailed mint-colored lace and turquoise ribbon, and topped off with small pearls. All of the petals were also distressed with Ranger Oxide Inks. The toppers of all bags were made with matching papers and flowers.


Butterflies and flowers and shiny little things!

Pictured above are the remaining embellishment sets. For one, I made scalloped flowers topped with pretty pearls, with beautiful broad silver leaves and a blue doily to match the color palette.
 For the fourth set, I made square shaped embellishments full of shine. I began by embossing some stamped images, the smaller one reads: Inspire, Enjoy Life (Inkadinkado Stamps), and they also have matching gems and beautiful little silver butterflies.


I made a double-sided pocket envelope using Tonic Dies to house all of the little gifts. The backgrounds to house the items were all made with the Gorguss Girls Postcard Die Set. This way they may be reused to send a little message to a friend! 


To embellish the front, I used a Gorguss Girl Stamp from the Frames Collection. Then I added more flowers in layered pinks, and an antique wedding lace to finish this Gorguss Project!


This is how the package was sent to Jeannie, from Happily Ella After. I truly had fun making these, and hope that you can

Thank you for stopping by!
Today I am sharing a beautiful card made with Santoro London Gorguss Girl , On Top of The World. I love all of the Gorguss Girl stamps, and this one in particular has a girl sitting on a wire with her little bird friends.

She is so adorable that I pictured her as pretending to be a bird as well. After coloring her, I gave her a plumed headdress with silver and pink feathers.


She is sitting on the front of a birdcage, free as a bird, and the front of the card has a huge girly bow made with white cardstock, pink vellum, and a small embellishment center.
The fence underneath is a beautiful border, and behind her I used a die to color the sky with a doily pattern and oxide inks.

This card is now complete with a beautiful sentiment, a button, and birds that peek out from behind a beautiful scrolled fence.

Be Brave Mixed Media Easel Card with The Runaway Gorguss Girl Stamp.

Thank you for joining me!
Take a look at this beautiful easel card I made with the Gorguss Girl Stamp The Runaway!
This stamp set is absolutely beautiful, and I wanted the image to look whimsical and fun.
I used Several supplies to achieve the end result, and I am quite happy with the soft and sweet colors that emerged from playing around with my Sennelier Watercolors, Prismacolor Pencils, and Ranger Distress inks. I used a mixture of all, and I love being surprised by how the inks and paints will blend and make their own story.


The front of the card has the image stamped and colored using Sennelier Watercolors, and Prismacolor Pencils on Mixed Media paper by Canson.
I also embossed the banner and hearts, added gold acrylic paint throughout as a highlight, and finished it with a few gems, a beautiful trim and red star. 


The inside has a beautiful frame that I stamped and embossed and also distressed with Ranger Distress inks. To add depth, I also colored in the lace portion with Prismacolor pencils, to match the background paper. The finishing bow adds a feminine touch. 

The Runaway Stamp set includes the images as you see above. It is a beautiful and versatile set!

The other sets also had elements I used in this card, such as the Washi stamp, and the Lace frame and the star.




I hope that you enjoy this and are inspired to use your stamps and supplies!! Be encouraged, be blessed, and be brave!!- Raquel
