This one is for Becky who is going on a Spring Vacation to warm weather this Tuesday. She loves elegant cards so I used my new Ovals from Alota stamps. They are designed to work with the Oval Nestibilities. I colored this gold embossed image with my Prismacolored Markers.
I added the bird from the Inkadinado Birds Galore stamp set. It is such an elegant bird and works perfectly in the oval. I attached sheer ribbon from Micheals and used the small Zots to attach the ends of the ribbon.
I used the sentiment from the Ovals set for the Forget Me Not and the rectangle stamper for the while on vacation. I love this stamper set from JustRite. So much versatility. This final photo of this card shows how I embossed all edges with the gold embossing power. I love how it glistens.
This is the card I made for Tracy. She has a kitten that she just adores so I used the Cart Full of Treats stamp set from Alota Rubber stamps. She is one of the funniest people I know...she tells a mean joke. I wanted her card to be more joyful so I used her favorite color Pink and added a soft yellow to go with it. I embossed the wagon with brown sepia and clear embossing powder and the cats were embossed using black detail powder.I used my markers to color and I must say those cats were hard to do. I had to repeat this little image 3 times before it worked. I had embossed it first to match the wagon but it look horrible, then I tried gold and finally the black. I used the circle and scalloped circle nestibility to layer the image. The background layer is embossed with my new circles folder (I think that is what it is called).
I love the first elegant card...very much my type of card. The pink/yellow card is not one of my favorites. I think this stamp set will take some work to make it something I am really proud of.
Well, guess I had better get the house tidied....they may be friends but 5 dogs do create some mess and those who know me, know stamping is a "messy" hobby.
