Masculine Thank You

Hello Everyone,
I needed a masculine Thank You  for my husband to send to the president of his company.  Of course it had to have a car...since we are living in the Motor City.  I found this automobile in a collection of digis from Doodle Pantry.  The image was colored with Copic markers and layered with two masculine decorative papers.  By the way, the pres liked the card so much he sent a email thank you. 






So glad you stopped by today!!

Circle Easel

Hello Everyone,
Sharing a cute project today.  It is an easel card made with circles instead of squares. This card is on the small side.  I used the largest circle dies I had.  The largest circle being four inches across. 


I used die cuts to decorate the card.





Here is how it looks from the side. 

So glad you stopped in today.  See you again soon.

My Valentine

Hello Everyone!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

This is the card I made for my Valentine.  ( Aww, how sweet.)  
The inspiration for this card was the ribbon with the silver hearts.  I have had this ribbon for quite a while and have not used much of it.  I decided it needed to be the focal point and not just an embellishment.  I laid it down over red cardstock warping it under the edges of the cardstock.  I added a strip of polka dot decorative paper on the opposite side of the card.



I added a big sheer bow and a stamped heart to complete the card.




Hope you have a lovely Valentine's day.  See you soon for a sweet birthday card with bunnies.

Valentine's Day Cards Watercolored

Hello Friends,
Today, I wanted to share three more of the cards I made for friends and family.  I used the "Roses for You" stamp set (Simon Says Stamp).  I added the heart from the set on the first card.  Sentiments are from My Sentiments Exactly.
(See three more cards on my first Valentines post here)




To get this look I stamped the image with Versa Mark ink on Mixed Media Paper.  Then heat embossed with white powder on the first and second cards and black powder on the last.  I used Distress inks with a wet brush to paint on the color.




Heart die cuts were used on this card for layers and a foiled paper.


Thanks for stopping by!  I have one more Valentine's day card that I will post tomorrow.  Hope you have enjoyed my Valentine's day cards.  See you next time.
Karen
