Thanks and Giving

 Hello Blogging Friends!


Today I am sharing a Thanksgiving card I made.



Ingredients:

Black ink
Neenah Solar White paper
Orange printed paper
White card stock
Dried Marigold distress ink
Copic markers

For this A2 card I started by making the base of the card with White cardstock.  I took a piece of Orange printed paper, inked the edges with Dried Marigold distress ink.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper, some Black ink and the Unity Stamp Full of Fall stamp and stamped that onto the paper.  I colored in the leaf with Copic markers and then I fussy cut it out and added it to the card.  I took one of the sentiments in this set and Black ink and stamped the sentiment onto the card!


I am entering this card in the Unity Stamps Holiday Card Challenge Facebook page.

 Hello Fairy Loving Friends!!


I have a fun fairy card for you today:




Ingredients:

For this A2 card I started with White card stock to make the base of the card.  I took a piece of Lavinia DreamScape Colorburst paper, VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink and the Fairy Hugs Toadstool stamp and stamped that onto the paper, with the same ink I stamped Fairy Hugs Azalea stamp on top of the Toadstool.  I took the Lavinia Slender Mushrooms Miniature stamp and the VersaFine Clair Purple Delight ink and stamped the mushrooms along the bottom of the paper.  I took the VersaFine Charming Pink ink and the Lavinia Group of Hearts Miniature stamp and stamped the hearts onto the paper so that it looks like the fairy is blowing hearts at you.  I took the VersaFine Clair Warm Breeze ink and the Lavinia Spanish Moss stamps and stamped them onto the top of the card.  I took some Copic markers and colored in the Fairy and the Toadstool.  I took the VersaFine Clair Fallen Leaves in and a blending brush and added some ink to the bottom of the card.  I took the VersaFine Clair Warm Breeze ink and a blending brush and brushed that onto the edges of the Lavinia DreamScapes Colorburst paper and then I added that to the White card base.
