Blended Ink Background Congratulations Card

I am working on a small card assortment for a friend.

I finally bought a super fine white embossing powder to try (Ranger) – OH MY. The smooth result of the embossing makes me happy.

Supplies:  Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop Tone Sour Apple, ink – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Twisted Citron, die – Simon Says Stamp, stencil – Heidi Swapp, sequins – Pretty Pink Posh, embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail white.


Seagull Photo Paint Chip Father’s Day Card

This one is for my Dad.

I die cut watercolor paper with the photo frame die, then stamped the seagull, embossed with clear powder, and watercolored the square.

Alas, I cut the paint chip, and set it aside without checking if it was straight. I always ASSume that paint chips come to me with cuts in perfect perpendicular form (If the sides are not straight or the paint lines are not level on the chip, I lose. I use a precut side to start my downsizing of the paint chip.). So, it was glued down when I noticed it was wonky. BOO. But, really, my Dad is not grading me on this (other things – YES, he is. Still.).

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Hero Arts, paper – Canson watercolor, Home Depot paint chip, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Smoky Slate, inks – VersaFine Onyx Black, Smoky Gray, ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens Light Gray (091), Orange (070), dies – Simon Says Stamp (sentiment strip), Taylored Expressions (photo frame), watercolors – Sakura Koi, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.


I Ruff You Yellow Labrador Card
