Happy Thanksgiving

My Thanksgiving card for this year, using the Stampin’ Up Pleasant Pheasant stamp set. I stamped the image on white card stock, then masked it so I could create the background. I brushed the background with Ranger Distress Oxide inks. I then removed the masking with a battery operated eraser and colored the image with markers. Next, I cut a Peekaboo Peach piece of cards stock with Stampin’ Up Stitched Seasons framelits, and adhered the pheasant layer behind the opening. Both layers were adhered to to a cream colored heavyweight card stock. The sentiment is also from the Pleasant Pheasant stamp set.

Country Home

Birthday card using Stampin’ Up Country Home, which I colored with Chameleon markers and fussy cut. I glued cotton from cotton balls on the card. I used a Friskars crimper to make the first (white) layer, so the milk can and flowers are adhered with dimensionals.

Something different

Tried something different today. Purchased a set of four tiles from Michaels. I used Stazon ink to stamp it with the Iris from Technique Tuesday. I then colored it with a mixture of Chameleon and Copic pens.  Next, I used the corresponding die to cut a piece of masking tape, which was used so I could “brush pounce” with distress oxide ink. After completing the set of four, I brushed each tile with Mod Podge Hard Coat. I will decide after the curing period of 4 weeks if I will use a spray sealant.
