Dahlias and Lattice

JustRite Stampers sponsors a Tuesday Tutorial where Darci Bruno hosts a video showing how to make this card. (  The link to the Tuesday Tutorial  ) .  I made this card to give to a very special couple on the purchase of a new home.  Copic markers were used to color the flower and butterfly.  The butterfly was cut using a coordinating Taylored Expressions die.  Wink of Stella glitter pen was used on both the flower and butterfly.   Not really a simple card, but fun to make.  Hope you enjoy.

Blooming Tag

It has been awhile since I colored with my Copic Markers so this was a fun card to put together.  The tag is from a new set by Penny Black "Blooming Tags".  The Copic markers used for this card were B00, BV01, YG93 and YG95.  Distress inks Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo were used to distress the tag which was mounted on black.  A hole was punched and black twine added.  The next part was the card base which is made of Royal Fiber Birch, stencils (the butterflies are Memory Box and I do not remember the leaves) and the  distress inks Rusty Hinge and Peeled Paint.  The tag was mounted on the card base using pop dots.  The sentiment is from the Penny Black set, stamped in Versafine Black and clear embossed.  When the card was assemble I decided to add the butterfly and distressed the edges with Vintage Photo.  This butterfly was stamped using a Taylored Expressions set "Make it amazing".  The butterfly was colored with the same colors as the flower and then Wink of Stella glitter was placed all over followed with a clear emboss.  Several steps to complete, but a fun card to make.  Hope you enjoy

Valentine's Day

The card started with a 4.25 x 11 paper that was scored at 5.5 to make a top fold.  A corner rounder was used to cut all of the bottom corners in each layer.  A piece of DP from American Crafts was cut to 3.5 by 5 and mounted on the card base.  Another piece of white was cut to 3.5 x 4.75 to make the top layer and the bottom corners.  The sentiment from Avery Elle was stamped and then clear embossed.  Washi tape was placed in the upper right with three gems.  Red Hearts purchased by the yard were cut apart and placed on the card using glossy accents.  The top layer was popped on the card.  Hope you enjoy.

Lots of Love

Lots of Love is the name of the stamp set used from Avery Elle for this card.  A very simple card using heart dies cut random on the card top and outlined with a black marker.  The sentiment was stamped using a black ink.  This was then popped up on a 4.25 x 5.5  card base made using paper from American Crafts.  A few pink pearl gems from the stash finish off this card.  Very simple.  Hope you enjoy.
