Anniversary Card

Here is an anniversary card I made.  It's largely based on Dawn McVey's card seen here.  I just switched up the colors and the main damask stamp.  This set is called Damask Designs by Papertrey Ink and was actually designed by Dawn, who I got to meet briefly at CHA this summer.  Love those girls at Papertrey - they really are Class A people!


Stamps:  Papertrey Ink Damask Designs
Paper: Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate, SU! Pink Pirouette, Curious Metallics Poison Ivory
Ink: Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate
Accessories: Ribbon, pink crystal

A Harvest Card in Non-Traditional Colours

Here's a harvest/Thanksgiving card that was in the batch of cards going to my friend Victoria for her friend.  I had coloured the image a little while back and was happy with the way it came out.  I decided to use colours that are not the traditional fall colours in order to bring out the yellow in the corn and the blue halo around the image. 


Stamps:  SU!
Ink:  Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper:  SU!'s Retired Cool Caribbean, Papertrey's Lemon Tart cardstock and patterened paper, Neenah Classic Crest - Solar White
Accessories:  Gamsol, Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils, Prismacolor pencils, blending stumps, Papertrey's ribbon in Lemon Tart, dimensionals

One more for the Whiff of Joy Guest Designer call...

Here is my third and final entry for the Whiff of Joy Guest Designer call. This is Willow with hot chocolate from Whiff of Joy. I love her! She's a lot of fun to color. She was colored using Gamsol and Faber-Castell polychromos colored pencils, which is my favorite way to color. I can almost smell the hot cocoa in her cup! This is a card that is going to my friend Victoria, along with the cards in the last two posts and the cards that will be seen in two future posts. She has a friend who is going to be deployed, so she is compiling a few cards for him to take on his deployment for he and his fellow troops to send home. They're on their way today V!

Stamps: Whiff of Joy, SU!
Ink: Tsukinedo Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Bashful Blue, Papertrey Ink White, patterned paper
Accessories: Gamsol, Faber-Castell polychromos colored pencils, crystal embellishment, Plaid Extreme Glitter in Hologram
