Copper Thanksgiving card using Gina K Autumn Wreath Builder


so....I totally forgot I had this blog post but I am still gonna put up though past Thanksgiving. Oooooppss. 

Today I have a card using just one ( ok technically three with the sentiment and circle) 
stamp for the wreath.

I used the Gina K Autumn Wreath Builder stamp set with Distress Oxide Inks and Ranger Copper embossing powder. 

I used Tea Dye and Gathered Twig inks for the circle and leaves. 

I felt it needed some shine so did one of the leaf rounds in 
Versamark to use the Copper embossing powder. 

This was my first time using this embossing powder and oh man is it pretty. 

I used foam tape to pop onto a Kraft card base.

Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you next time!

Color Throwdown #519 using SSS Ornate Ornaments

Happy Wednesday!

I am so excited for todays post since I am the 
Guest Star Stamper for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge #519

I was so excited to see that the colors this week were Red, Aqua and Silver. 

I really wanted to use the Simon Says Stamp Ornate Ornaments Stamp set but didn't know how to make the tree work since no green. 

I then thought of those old school Aluminum Christmas trees and how would be a great backdrop for some colorful ornaments.

The tree branch comes from the Sunny Studios Holiday Style stamp set and was heat embossed with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder. 

I heat embossed the ornaments onto some Bristol Smooth card stock and colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

I used:
Geranium Red
Light Pink
Turquoise Green
Light Blue
Light Gray

I fussy cut the images and attached with Gina K Connect Glue. 

The sentiment is also from the SSS Ornate Ornaments set and heat embossed in silver.
 I used the light gray marker to add a slight shadow since I thought at first looked a tad flat. 

I popped the panel onto the red card base using the SSS Big Momma Foam tape to add just a little dimension. 

Thank you so much for visiting and please go visit the Color Throwdown site to see all of the other beautiful creations and I hope to see yours submitted!

Color Throwdown #517 using the Lori Whitlock A2 Flexi Card

Happy Friday!

Here is my submission for this weeks Color Throwdown #517 Challenge this week. 

The colors this week are Orange, Kraft, Red and Aqua.

I adore this Lori Whitlock A2 Flexi card design I got from the Silhouette Design Store. 

I only used the colored red card stock for the card base and used Kraft for the trees and sign. 

Everything else was ink blended with Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks. 

I used the Tim Holtz Lumber 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder on the trees fence and sign back to add some fun texture. 

I altered the image just a tad and added a bunch more leaves to add some more color on the inside panel.

I used Gina K Connect glue to attach everything. 

I just love how this card can be mailed flat and then have so much dimension when the receiver puts together!

Thank you so much for visiting and I will see you next time!
