Scribble Roses Overlays

This card was just SO much fun to make!  I started with tip top taupe, close to cocoa and whisper white paper by SU, and several die cuts from Die-Namics Scribble Roses Overlay (MFT 744).  The overlays were filled with the cutout pieces from the dies and attached to scalloped circles found in one of the Sizzix flip it die set # 659171. These are mounted on a panel of DP from SU that has a random circle pattern on the reverse.  I  chose to mount it so the front showed the woodgrain and the inside of the card has a die cut  that shows the reverse of the paper and contains one of the smaller overlays I finished. The word celebrate is formed by the negative space after I cut out Avery Elle's Celebrate (Sentimental Dies) D-16-01.  I saved all the microscopic letter fill and tacked them onto the sticky side of a post it note waiting for the assembly of the card.  I used a microbrush to put down glue to hold them in place.The gold and white border is a sticker touched with Tim Holtz White enamel accents. A piece of gold cording and a pearl finish this dramatic card.

Watercolor Lift

This autumn card was created with the  Watercolor Lift technique inspired by Wendy Cranford at Splitcoast Stampers.  The stamp is a very old clearstamp that I have, embossed with clear embossing powder.  The colors for the watercolor wash are directly stamped from Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves stamppad onto Bienfang watercolor paper (smoother side).  The accent paper is Old Olive by SU and the Autumn Frame for the Birthday sticker sentiment is a  Spellbinders Decorative Curved  Square (S4-525).  The Copper foil Starform sticker is from Pop Ups  Etc mounted on a "wonky rectangles" cut of the watercolor paper that hasn't been lifted. The card base is lightly burnished with Delicata ink.

For a wedding, for an anniversary, or just for fun, these darling  Elizabeth Craft stickers have been filled with Dazzling Diamonds micro glitter and mica pearl dust.  The textured flowers and swirls behind the birds are touched with  Tim Holtz enamel dots, and are all punches except for the swirls which are by Cheery Lynn.  The card is edged in black lines from Pop Ups Etc. The cardfront is diecut with the beautiful die- embossing folder by Marianne Design Designables (DS0907), and backed with black cardstock on the inside. The card was inspired by Joan Fricker on her Joan's Touch blog

Christmas Start UPs _with Holtz and Black

This is a gorgeous Penny Black Die, called "Holly Berries" coupled with a  Tim Holtz  "Merry Christmas" stamp. Some of the cards use stickers for the Sentiments (Pop Ups Etc).   These have been the start of several cards I have enjoyed doing.   Some I tried coloring the holly branch with Copics, another with Prismacolor Pencils, and finally I created a green paper in Photoshop, spritzed it with sparkle and used that because I wanted the color intensified and that would do it.  Borders and washi tape, ribbons and Tim Holtz enamel for dots also are used on these cards.  I will do several more of these I'm sure and each one is just so different from the others. I'm waiting for micro brushes to paint the multi medium glue on the back of some of these extremely fine lines to adhere and embed them in the project.
