Burlap and Flower Thanks Card

Hi everyone! I am back today with a quick and easy card I created with a pre-bought card base that is the Burlap Creative Card.

I started by inking Art Daubers with the following chalk inks: Misty Meadow French Blue and Twist-Arctic Deep Chalk Inks. I inked over the Burlap Creative Card with the Arctic Deep Chalk on the outer edges of card and French Blue Chalk Ink in the center of card.

I placed the decorative heart stamp from the Bible Clear Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper. I stamped out the image three times. I inked an art dauber with Blush Rose Chalk Ink from the Soft Pastel Chalk Petal Point and inked all of the decorative heart images. Once dry I fussy cut the hearts out with Scissors.

I inked an Art Dauber with Alabaster Chalk Ink from the Soft Pastel Petal Point Chalk and inked over a leftover piece of Handwritten Creative Cards and adhered to front of card base. Next I inked the Thanks Wood Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I cut out the sentiment with a Paper Cutter  and I inked an art dauber with Arctic Deep from the Twist Chalk Inks, inked the edges of the sentiment and adhered to the bottom corner of card.

I inked the Leafy Border Rollagraph…I couldn’t find the actual leaf rollagraph but did find the moulding mat in the leaf border on Amazon…same thing just doesn’t roll 😁…with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and rolled onto a piece of watercolor paper. Next I inked the leaf with Ice Jade Chalk Ink from the Misty Meadow Chalk Inks and fussy cut the stamped leaf out with scissors. Lastly I added a dot of adhesive to the center of each decorative hearts and place on top of each other and bent the “petals” to create a flower. I adhered the leaf to back and added a button to the center of flower and added to the front of the card.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Always be an Original Card

Hi everyone! I am back with a quick card I created using some inks and a creative card by ColorBox. Last week was very crazy because my husband had a health scare and wound up being sent to the ER by his personal doctor and then was admitted to the hospital and kept over night for a procedure. 😳 So all my big plans for being productive and posting for last week was put on hold. But anyway…lets get started!

I stamped the Escape Pigment Ink onto a glass tray, add water to each color and painted around the building images on Cityscape Creative Card

I used a “dappling effect”with the Paint Brush to create a cloudy look on the base of the card and then I let dry.

I cut two strips of patterned cardstock and adhered near the top of the card. Next I cut out one house from the House One Diecuts (Spellbinders retired) or you can cut a house out by hand. I adhered the house diecut to the card and add mini gems to the top of the house die to create a roof.

I printed from the computer the sentiment “Always be an Original”, punched out with a decorative punch, inked around the edges with the Escape Pigment Ink and adhere to the card.

I punched two flowers and two leaves from patterned cardstock, shape and glue to the sentiment and house. I  also added flat back pearls to the center of each flower and adhered a couple loops of thread underneath one of the flowers. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
