Pan Pastels

Here is my first card made with Pan Pastels.  This card is 5 x 5.75.

For this card I used:
  • Dreamweaver Stencil LX 7021 Corner Flowers
  • Pan Pastels 280.5 Orange, 250.5 Diarylide Yellow, 470.5 Violet, 340.5 Permanent Red, 340.8 Permanent Red Tint, 430.5 Magenta, 380.5 Red Iron Oxide
  • Stampendous Hydrangea Garden Stamp Set
  • Memento Rich Cocoa
  • Stampendous Detailed Silver Embossing Powder
  • Versamark
To make the card, I placed the stencil on white card stock.  I used the pan pastels to color the flowers in the stencil.  I then stamped the butterfly from the Hydrangea Garden stamp set in Rich Cocoa.  The butterfly body was colored with Rich Cocoa, and the wings with the Orange Pan Pastels.  Once complete, I sealed the images, and cut the images to 4 x 5.75. 

To assemble the card, I covered the edge of a scrap piece of white card stock with Versamark (to about 1 inch), and then heat embossed with Detailed Silver embossing power.   1/4" strips were then cut from the embossed edge.  The images were mounted to the center of the card base.  The strips were added to the long edges of the image.

Birthday Golfer with Paper Dolls for Everyday Cricut Cartridge

Here is a card that I made my stepson's birthday who loves to golf.  This card is 5 x 6.5.

For the card, I used:
  • Paper Dolls for Everyday Cricut Cartridge
  • Cricut Black Marker
  • Wink of Stella Clear
  • Copic Markers R29, YG07, G09, E11
  • Glossy Accents
  • Technique Tuesday Greenhouse Society Stems Stamp Set
  • Stampendous Pirate Gold Embossing Power
  • Versamark
To make the card, I first outlined using a black Copic marker, then cut all of the golfer pieces at 3.75 inches from the Paper Dolls for Everyday Cricut Cartridge.  
  • The body was cut from white paper, and then colored using Copic Marker E11.
  • All of the clothing, shoes, hair and cap were added to the body.
  • The flag was cut from gray card stock, then the grass colored with G09 and YR07, and the flog colored with R29.  Wink of Stella was then added to the flag and the pole.  Glossy Accents was added to the pole.
  • Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents were added to the clubs in the golf bag.
When assembling the card, I used pop dots behind the flag, and the golf bag to add a bit of dimension.  The golf bag was slung over the golfer's shoulder.  The sentiment was stamped in Versamark, then heat embossed with Pirate Gold embossing power.

2014 Halloween Card 4

The forth Halloween card.  This card is 4.25 x 5.25.

For the card, I used:
  • Wild Card Cricut Cartridge
  • WOW Copper Pearl Embossing Power
  • Versamark
  • Recollection Halloween Stamp Set
  • Wink of Stella Clear
To make the card, I cut the card from the Wild Card Cartridge.  I modified the sizing with my Gypsy to have a finished card at 4.25 x 5.5.  The blackout image, grass and stem were also cut with the same sizing.

I only used the pumpkin portion of the blackout image and attached it to the card.  I then attached the stem and grass.  To make the eyes and mouth stand out a bit, I added Wink of Stella Clear.  The sentiment was stamped with Versamark, embossing powder added and then heat embossed.
