The Little Things

Sharing a pretty simple card.  I found inspiration for this on the internet and changed it up some to make it my own.  I started by by stamping my image on a paper cut4 x 5.25 using the Taylored Expressions "The little Things". The next step was to cut an oval using masking paper to fit over the stamped image.  Using Antique Linen distress ink the paper was distressed and the mask removed so the image could be colored.  The sentiment was added next and the card was then mounted on the white card base to form an A2 card.    Simple.  Hope you enjoy

Non-Traditional Christmas in July

JustRite is hosting a non-traditional Christmas card challenge  (here) and this is my take on it. Roses are not what we think of as being a Christmas flower and dark backgrounds are rare. 

 The card base is white folded size 4.75 x 6.  Bazzill red was cut to 4.5 x 5.75 to form the base for the JustRite " Holly Garlands Background".  JudiKins "Rustique Weathered Iron" was to used to heat emboss the background which was then distressed with "Peeled Paint".  JustRite "Rose Bouquets Vintage Labels" was stamped on white and colored with Copic markers (YG93, YG 95, R 27, R29) and then cut with a Spellbinder oval die with a final touch of distress ink on the edge.  The sentiment believe is from the same stamp set as the roses, masked to remove the words "in miracles" then cut cut and distressed with the peeled paint.  A silk ribbon from the stash was tied with all cut outs being popped.

Winter Wonderland

This very simple card to make uses Taylored Expressions "Winter Wonderland".  I found the idea on the internet for the card.  The card is made with watercolor paper.  The first step is to ink  a stamping block with Faded Jeans and mist with water then stamp.  Each card you make will have a little different look.  A snowflake was stamped with faded jeans over the watercolor, while another was stamped on white with the same ink and cut out with the coordinating die.  The cut out snowflake was popped and placed on top of the image on the card base.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine then clear heat embossed.  Hope you enjoy

I needed a Baptism card for a special little boy and this is what I decided on.  The card base is Bazzill blue with a layer of Bazzill white.  The blue with tiny words "Baptism" is from Scrapbook Customs and cut with a Spellbinder die.  The cross was cut in two sizes again with a Spellbinder die.  The gems are from Hero Arts and the Sentiment is from a set by JustRite.  Hope you enjoy

Wedding wishes

Everyone needs Wedding cards this time of the year so I am on a mission to get some done.  This is a top fold card cut 4.5 wide by 11 inches.  The paper was scored at 5.5.  The DP is from Echo Park :Just Married and was cut 4 x 5.25.  The sentiment from J Villian Vance Designs "Vine Wedding Cross" was stamped on white cut 1.75 x 4 and mounted on a black cut 2 x 4.  The sentiment was stamped with black Versafine and clear embossed.  A white silk bow finishes off this card.  Hope you enjoy.
