“May the Forest be with You” Card

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by.  For this week’s card I created an enchanting forest scene.

This was very fun to put together.  It all started with an embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers.  It added great texture for the first layer of this card.

Next, I cut out a frame using two rectangular dies with faux stitching–gotta love the faux stitching!  For the center of the frame I pulled out my stamp pads to blend ink onto some white card stock for the grass and sky.

My favorite thing I used for this card was the Tree-mendous die cuts from MFT to create the forest.  I absolutely love this die set.  More faux stitching!

Mother’s Day Card

Hello!  Thanks for visiting my blog!  Id’ like to wish everyone a very Happy Mother’s Day today!  I wanted to share the Mother’s Day card I created for my sweet mom.

Mothersday_2016_THUMBNAIL.jpgI absolutely love flower stamps, and this one from Altenew called Peony Bouquet is simply gorgeous!  It’s a layering set, but I just used the outline stamps for this card.  I stamped it with pink distress ink onto pink card stock.

This gave me a no-line effect when I colored it in with some Prismacolor pencils.

Wedding Card – Silver Heat Embossed

Hello and welcome to my craft table!  For today’s card I’m sharing the wedding card I created for one of my darling nieces.

I wanted it to be simple and elegant.  Her color palette includes various shades of purple and blue, so I’m using a purple pigment ink to repeatedly stamp out some small flower blossoms.  I also used the coordinating purple card stock to die cut the heart.  I used blue card stock for the base of the card.

This layering stamp set was a lot of fun to use.  After I stamped the first flower layer, I masked the flowers with Post-it notes that I stamped and cut out.  Then I stamped the two leaf layers with two different colors of green ink.  It allowed me to make the leaves appear as though they are behind the flowers.

For a touch of sparkle, I stamped the second flower layer with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder, as well as the sentiment.
