Hero Arts Leaf

I stamped this card a couple of months ago with white ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  I then used one of the green Ranger inks for the background.  I used a sparkly spray over the front of the card but it doesn't show up in this photo.  In real life it is very sparkly!  I am presently working on fall cards in this technique.  It is such a fast technique and I found it on either the Hero Arts blog or Jennifer McGuires blog.

Fall wreath

I'm in the mood for fall and have made a couple of these cards.  I bought this stamp set at the Hampton rubber stamp show in October of 2009 and thought it was time it saw ink.  The stamp set is really neat, by Darcie's, and has many different images so you can make it into an Easter, Christmas, fall, etc. card.  I stamped the wreath and colored the leaves in with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol.  I used glitter on the berries.  I cut out the pumpkin and popped it up with pop dots.   I also used a MS border punch.  Think fall and cooler temperatures!!

Hero Arts

Here are two cards made from a rubber cling set from Hero Arts.  The set has the flower and two birds.  I stamped the background using Pearlescent Coral ink from Brillance (most of their inks have a pearly shine to them).  I cut the flower border using a Martha Stewart punch.  I colored my images with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  I used a sentiment from Papertrey Ink punched out with SU punches.  I used Tear-rific tape from to tape on the ribbon.  I applied areas of Tear-rific tape to the ribbon and then twisted so you can see both sides.  The Tear-rific tape comes in several widths and has a super hold.  Now that I am back to working about two days a week you will see more cards!  Enjoy!
