CPS Sketch #272

  • Stamps – Pink Paislee “Soiree” (teapot) and Hero Arts “Year Round Sentiments” (Thinking of You)
  • Patterned papers – Teresa Collins “Fabrications” collection
  • Dies – Spellbinders Nestabilities “Lacey Circles” and “Standard Circles Large”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I used Card Positioning System Sketch #272 as inspiration for this card with matching papers from Teresa Collins. This simple card will be perfect for an Operation Write Home card. Thanks for visiting today.

OWH – Midweek Throwdown – Fall Anniversary

  • Stamps – Fred B. Mullett “Maple 2” and A Muse Artstamps “Happy Anniversary”
  • Patterned paper – Basic Grey “Little Black Dress: Shades of Grey” (both sides)
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Ribbon – American Crafts – Tangerine
  • Kraft paper base

I used Ranger Distress Inks on the maple leaf image and then stamped it twice, overlapping it. I lightly spritzed the image with water for the watercolor effect and used watercolor paper so the damp image would hold up well and dry flat. I really like to use this technique on leaf images. We were challenged to make anniversary cards for our heroes to send home at the OWH Stars and Stamps Midweek Throwdown this week. I added the autumnal touch, since we are also trying to get some Fall cards made as well. Thanks for visiting.
