I'm Thinking of You ...

Here's a quick card using a Hero Arts stamp set. 
It's 5.5" x 5.5", scored to create a square pattern.  The images were colored with Copic markers and the sentiment from a Close To My Heart Cricut bundle stamp set.

Copic colors:

RV000, RV02, RV04; YR00, YR02, YR07; BG10, BG13, BG15; BV00, BV02, BV04; YG11, YG13, YG17; Y02, Y08; B000, B00.

It didn't photograph well, but I brushed a little Wink of Stella on the images ... it added a really nice shimmer.
I finished by making a matching envelope.

Graduation 2016

It's that time of year ... Graduation! Here's a couple of cards I've made for the graduation party season.

For Taylor:

This is a 4.25" x 5.5" card. The images are stamps from Papertrey Ink's 'Filled with Joy' stamp set ... I used a variety of Papertrey dye inks. I used a little clear Wink of Stella on the center of each of the flowers. It's hard to see in the photo, but it added a really nice shimmer. The sentiment is from one of the Close To My Heart Cricut bundle stamp sets, embossed with white embossing powder. The aperture was cut with a Nestabilities die and I used craft foam to pop up the stamped layer.  The envelope was made using piece of paper from Echo Park's Be Mine collection and the Stamping' Up Envelope Punch Board (my new favorite thing!).

For Nick:

This card is 5"x 5". The designer paper is from the DCWV 'The High School' Stack. The dark gray layer was embossed with the 'Diamond Plate' Cuttlebug folder. I stamped the light gray layer with the Stampendous '2 Grad Cap' stamp and embossed it with American Crafts Zing Pewter embossing powder, then cut it out using a Nestabilites die and popped it up using black craft foam. I finished by making an envelope with a random piece of gray textured card stock.

I'm happy with both of these and ready for the parties!!
