Joy to all Card

Today I have 2 different versions of the same card design. I love the foil snowflakes and the patterned paper corners. I love the dry embossing with the Quilt Top embossing folder with a little stamping and coloring to finish everything off. Take a look at the projects below and let me know what you think.

Supplies
.

Additional supplies: powder bag, ATG, heat tool and clear blocks.

  1. Create a card base from Whisper White card stock to measure 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. Run the card front through the Big Shot with the Quilt Top embossing folder.
  2. Cut a piece of the DSP to 3” x 4” and then cut in half diagonally. Place on desired card stock and cut to size. Adhere the DSP to the card stock with favorite adhesive and then adhere to the card front using liquid glue, in the bottom left and top right corner.
  3. Die-cut a 2 3/8” circle from Garden Green card stock and then a smaller circle from white card stock. Stamp the focal image on the white circle using Garden Green ink and color the berries in with Cherry Cobbler marker.
  4. Rub the center of the focal image with a powder bag, stamp the sentiment with VersaMark ink, sprinkle with silver embossing powder and heat set.
  5. Adhere foil snowflake to the Garden Green circle and then adhere the focal image on top.

    Happy Thanksgiving- card

    Hello and welcome to today's post. I have a water-colored Thanksgiving card for you today that was pretty easy to create with the ink refills used. The drying time is the only thing that makes this project time-consuming. I created a separate water color panel and then stamped the leaf images on top of the dried ink. Of course I can't create a card without a little bling so I sprinkled the card front with some sequins. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

    .


    Supplies:
    .

    Additional supplies: Fun foam, ATG, clear blocks, Strathmore Watercolor paper,  water and a paintbrush.

    1. Create a card base from Perfect Plum card stock to measures 5 ½” x 8 ½”and score at 4 ¼”. Make it a top fold card.
    2. Cut a piece of Watercolor paper and ink the top portion with Crushed Curry ink and all the edges with Pear Pizzazz ink. Splatter the whole panel with Pear Pizzazz and Perfect Plum ink using a paintbrush and water.
    3. Cut a piece of Perfect Plum card stock that measures ¾” x 5 ¼” and adhere to the watercolor panel about a 1/3” of the way up front the bottom of the card base. Next, cut a ½” x 5 ¼” strip from the scrap of watercolor paper, stamp the sentiment with Pear Pizzazz ink and adhere centered to the Perfect Plum strip.
    4. Create a panel (big enough to stamp 4 leaves on) of water-color on watercolor paper using Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Perfect Plum and Pear Pizzazz inks. Let dry and then stamp leaves onto the panel with Memento Tuxedo black ink and then die-cut with coordinating framelits.
    5. Pop one leaf up with foam tape and tie a bow with linen thread and adhere to the bottom of the leaf and then adhere to the card front on the left side of the focal. Adhere the whole watercolor panel to the card base.
    6. Sprinkle with gold sequins.

    The inside of the card was left blank for a personal message.

    I hope you have enjoyed today's project and will check back often for more inspiration. Thank you for visiting.
