Lovely Jane Austen Images

Hi Dreamers,
I am back from a busy weekend--had a family birthday party on Sunday.  Very fun.  Spent some quality time with my family.  I am back and refreshed with some new projects to share with you.
My favorite author is Jane Austen.  And, when I saw this Jane Austen Set from Artistic Outpost--well I just had to have it.  I have made several cards with the set so far.  Here is the first.

Inks: Espresso Truffle Memento
Distress Inks: Mowed lawn, Victorian Velvet, and Scattered Straw (to color the image)
CS: Cream, Pale Green (Bazzill); Bright green (A Muse Studios)
Decorative paper: medium olive green
Paper Doily
Spray Ink- green
Pale green Pearls
Spellbinders Die cut


  • Make card from the bright green CS --This card measures 4.50 x 5.75"
  • Layer with pale green CS and decorative paper
  • Spray a white paper doily with green ink and let dry
  • When doily is dry add to card front

  • Stamp Jane on cream CS with Espresso Truffle ink
  • Cut image with a die
  • Add the distress inks to color the image-use the Ranger tool, sponge, or even just your finger tip will work.  I used my finger tip in the pink and yellow
  • Add to card front

  • Stamp the Jane Austen Quote on the light green CS and add to front with dimensional adhesive
  • Add five small pearls

This card will be included in my big customer order.  My customer also loves J. Austen.  So, this should be a favorite with her.  I am now done with the order and have made a total of 49 cards.  I guess I should make one more for an even 50...I will.  LOL  50 sounds much better, doesn't it??  I will share a few more of the cards over the next several posts.
