Altenew Henna Elements Card

When I saw the Altenew Henna Elements stamp set I knew I had to have it.  I love the flowers in this set!

Here is the card that I made: 

For the card, I used:
  • Altenew Henna Elements
  • Stampendous Detailed White Embossing Power
  • Versamark
  • Copic Markers YR14, YG25, T2, R24, YR07, Y17, G09, V04  
To make the card, I stamped the various flowers and leaves with Versamark, and then embossed with the Detailed White Embossing power.  Since the card base is a kraft paper, I chose to use the brightest Copics I had in my collection to color the flowers (although I did need to tone down the G09 with T2).  I did color over the embossing to add additional color to the card.

Blooms and Blossoms Bird House

For this card, I totally copied one that I saw at:

I even purchased the stamps just to make this card!  Here is my interpretation of the card.  While I did not have some of the Copic Markers, I used similar colors.

For the card, I used:

  • Copic Markers RV09, RV06, RV02, YG25, E33, E49, E25, N5 and the colorless blender.  
  • Blooms and Blossoms Stamp set from Gina K Designs
  • Memento Tuxedo Black and Desert Sand Ink
  • Spellbinders Circle Die
  • Ribbon 
To make the card, I followed the directions from the website, substituting colors to what I had on hand.

Thanks! Card

Here is a card I made with incentive stamps from Gina K designs.  

This card is 3 x 5.25 inches and was made with the following:
  • Just Because Stamps from Gina K
  • Thanks stamp from Greenhouse Society 
  • Copic Markers, Y13, Y15, Y17
  • I-Rock gems
  • Memento Ink Tuxedo Black
To make the card, I stamped the flowers from the Just Because stamp set, twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I also stamped the Thanks sentiment with Tuxedo Black ink.  I then colored the flowers with Copic Markers. After the card was assembled, I decided that it needed a bit of bling, so I added I-rock gens in the center of the flowers, and in the corner of the card.
