And here is my card —

Safe Travels - Missing You Already

 

I started this card with some Slate card stock from Simon Says Stamp cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. For the elements for the sketch, I rotated the sketch counter clockwise placing the smaller panel on top instead of on the right. The patterned paper I used are from the Chalk Studio collection from My Mind’s Eye.

For the bicycle, i used the Spellbinders Inspire Bicycle die from some black card stock and adhered it to the larger panel. To make the bike sturdy, I attached 4 pieces of the same cut out from white card stock below the black piece.

For the sentiment, I used the Life Is A Journey set from Simon Says Stamp and stamped the sentiment with Versafine black ink and topped it with clear embossing powder.

To finish the card, I added some enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye for some dimension and added interest.

That’s it. Thanks for reading.

Thanks For Thinking Of Me

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for the Pretty Pink Posh Cutting Edge blog hop hosted by the ever so sweet and awesome – Paulina. I enjoyed the shaker card blog hop and this one this definitely another fun one.

I have been recently enjoying die cuts, and my sister who is my most generous gift giver, has given me quite a few dies over the past few weeks and I was excited to use them. For this card, I used the Spellbinders Inspire – Birds On A Wire die. It’s a very elegant and versatile die.

Here is my card —

Thanks for Thinking of me1

I started this card with a panel of Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper cut to  5 1/4 by 4 inches. Using the Tim Holtz mini distress ink blending tool, I blended in the inks from top to bottom. I started with Fired Brick on top then blended in Spiced Marmalade and at the bottom I used Mustard Seed. To darken the colors a little bit, I went over the entire panel with some Antique Linen distress ink.

For the die cuts, I used the Birds on a Wire from Spellbinders and cut 3 rows of birds from some Bazzill Licorice Twist card stock. I used the Xyron sticker maker to adhere them diagonally on the top of the card leaving some space on the bottom left for my sentiment.

For the sentiment, I used the Thanks set from Simon Says Stamp and stamped it with black pigment ink from ColorBox and then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I have recently been loving the pigment ink + clear embossing powder combination.

To finish the card, I adhered the front panel to a top folding standard size made some Bazzill Licorice Twist card stock.

I am also entering this card for the current challenge at A Blog Named Hero. The theme for this challenge is Ombre.
