This first card measures 5.25 square. Trying to get a handful of Valentine cards ready to send over to Operation Write Home before next week so they can get them in time. This is a digital image from The Stamping Boutique colored with Copics. The sentiment is from Unity's November Kit of the Month stamped in Olive. I added some glossy accents to the rose and AJ's buttons then some Stickles to the ribbon on the box of chocolates. I love how the peppermint bakers twine looks with this olive button.
This card was made following Splitcoast Stampers color challenge this week - Olive, Navy and Daffodil. The image from Stampin' Up's Waterfowl set was stamped in memento on white then colored with Copics before cutting apart. I matted on Navy to give it a faux tile look then sponged around each panel with a bit of olive. The background is the feather from the same set stamped in Navy on the daffodil. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts mini set that was circle punched & matted. Perfect for a masculine card, I think.
This one is short and sweet - started off in one direction then realized I didn't follow the directions (oops, lol) so made it a fairly CAS - Clean and Simple - card. The scroll image is another digital image from The Stamping Boutique with a computer generated sentiment. I shaded the scroll with Copics then sponged the edges with tea dye ink. The background papers have a leaf randomly stamped with durango ink. Since I was leaning towards masculine, the border trim is a geometric shape. Finished off with some chocolate felt brads.
My final card - for this upload anyway - was made with this week's Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge - have the image go outside the box. This is a digital image from The Stamping Boutique colored in Copics - what else, wink-wink. The sentiment is computer generated in a rose color. I stamped a Penny Black flower randomly on the background panel - riding hood on the left and blush blossom on the right - before adding half pearls and the ivory satin ribbon. This is another I'll be sending off to Operation Write Home.
