Feel Better Card

Recently my mom had a knee replacement.  Then she injured a shoulder.  Then she fell and injured her other shoulder.  After her fall, I made the following card for her.  The card is 4.25 x 5.5.

I used the following to make the card:
  • Everyday Paper Dolls - Cricut Cartridge
  • Zing Clear Embossing Powder
  • Versamark
  • EZ De's 1" Rail Fence Set A stamp set
  • Misti
  • Kelly Craft Get it Straight Laser Square
  • Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles
  • Cuttlebug
To make the card, I cut the images from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge at 4".  I used a combination of accessories.  To make the sling, I cut the arm, placed it over the body and added a triangular piece of white card.  The doll was then added to the peach card stock that was cut with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die using my Cuttlebug. 

The card base was stamped multiple with the heart stamp from the EZ De's stamp set using Versamark.  I used my Misti to align the stamp for each row.  The clear embossing powder was added and then heat set.  I then used the Get it Straight Laser Square to align the image on the card base.

Mothers Day with Hero Arts

Here is another card that I made for Mothers Day:

For this card I used:
Hero Arts CG403 - Large Flower Background
Distress Markers - Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters
Recollections Pesto Embossing Powder
Stampendous Detailed White Embossing Powder

To make the card, I stamped the background image with Versamark, added the Detailed White embossing powder and heat set.  The flowers and leaves were then colored with the Distress Markers.  Once complete, I carefully wiped off any of the ink on the embossing.  The sentiment was stamped on vellum with Versamark, and the Pesto Embossing powder added and heat set.  The strip of vellum was then added to the image and the entire piece added to the card base.

Last Easter Card for 2015

Here is another Easter card made this year.  This card is 4.25 x 5.5.

For this card I used:
Memento Tuxedo Black and London Fog
Copic Markers Y06, Y15, Y17, R21, R81, G21, G24
Sheer Shimmer Spritz - Sparkle
Pan Pastels 956.5 - Pearlescent Green, 953.5 - Pearlescent Red, 951.5 - Pearlescent Yellow
Greenhouse Society - Tulips stamp
Close to My Heart - Just to Say stamp

To make the card, I randomly added the Pan Pastels to white card stock (cut to 2 x 4).  These were then sealed.  A third piece of white card stock was cut to 3.5 x 2.5. Using my MISTI, I stamped the Tulips with London Fog, and then colored them with Copic Markers.  The image was then spritzed the Sheer Shimmer.  This gave the final image a sparkly look to match the Pan Pastels.  All three images were then matted with yellow card stock and added to the card base.  The sentiment from Just to Say was added (again lined up using the MISTI).
