Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was good, but really busy. I'm hoping things slow down some this week. :-) Since I am in need of a thank you card, I thought I'd share one with you today.
technique of stamping in VersaMark on Kraft CS, embossing with detailed
white embossing powder and then coloring with Copics has become a
favorite of mine. It is fairly quick and easy and I really do like the
look of copic inks on kraft CS. So for my thank you card, I started by
stamping my image
on kraft, embossing and coloring with Copics. I thought the white edges
were too bright for the fall colors, so I colored over the edges with
the various copic markers. The top half of the card was dry embossed
with the CB pumpkin folder and then the sentiment was stamped, die cut and added to the top left hand corner. Some brown ribbon, a leaf button and baker's twine finish the look.
Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to check out this week's challenge to have a moon on your card. You still have time to play along and win some awesome DRS Designs' stamps!
Next I have a card I created for this week's Merry Monday Challenge. You can see details about this challenge at Lesley's blog. We were to use a bird on our card. I used my SU 2 step bird punch to create the bird. I also used today's Technique Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers to make my own stencil to create a background. I used a small snowflake punch to create the stencil and then stamped the snowflakes in Colorbox White ink on the Bashful Blue CS. Some MS punched pine branches were added to give the little red bird a place to rest. The sentiment was stamped in Real Red on Bashful Blue CS, punched with a tag punch and layered on Real Red CS. It's attached with some red baker's twine. Hope you like it.
Until next time,
