The first thing I did was find a scrap of glossy cardstock that someone had done a brayering demo on with Ranger's Big and Juicy Waterfall rainbow pad. It was not the best demo since the color was all mottled. :) I stamped the main imaged with clear embossing ink and embossed the image with black powder. I then took my beloved Tombow felt markers and colored the flowers and leaves. I matted it with pieces of scrap out of my scrap bin as well as stamped my "friends are special treasures of the heart" stamp on a matching piece of cardstock. I thought the main cardstock needed a little something so I took my Scor-It board and scored lines around 3 sides of the card which you cannot see in the photo. I edged all my mats with Versamagic white ink for extra pop.
Thanks for looking!

I made this card a few days ago using a layout from the blog Card Sketch a Day. I am very proud to say I even used all scraps! I had the strips all pre-cut from the Crafty Capers December Make and Take.
Anyway, a pretty straight forward card. I used a new Inkadinkado buy 2, get 1 free stamp from the Valentines collection, Ranger Pesto dye ink and Kaiser Craft yellow rhinestones.
Thanks for looking!

I stamped the circles with Ranger Meadow dye ink and cut them out with my Spellbinders circle Nestabilities. I also cut 2 circles of green Co-ordinations cardstock. I stamped Inkadinkado's Bloom saying on a scrap of yellow cardstock. I attached everything and embellished with Kaiser Crafts Large Rhinestone flowers in mint and used Rangers Distress Stickles in Antique Linen in the centres. I realize now I should have taken better pictures but at least you get the idea.
Thanks for looking.

I was asked by a friend to make some thank you cards.
It was kind of fun to have a specific "assignment". Here is my first one. The flower is by Penny Black and the saying is by Hero Arts. Both are available from Crafty Capers.
I colored the flower with Shimmerz paints unfortunately, the shimmer does not show up in the photo. I used Bubble gum, Magenta and Sky blue Shimmerz after I had embossed the saying and flower with black embossing powder. Before matting the card I stamped the diamond border twice over top of the Thanks part of the stamp. The brads are by Creative Impressions "pearl" collection.
Thank for looking.
