Welcome! I'm in St. Louis this weekend, along with Lori Craig, for Copic Certification classes. I'm hoping to meet some of you here! Today I have another encouragement card to share. My dear father-in-law is not feeling well these days, so I've been trying to get a card made every week for him, just to encourage him and remind him of things that he knows far better than I. I pulled out my Papertrey Ink Beautiful Blessings set once again--love this set! To ink the sentiment in two colors, I put tape over the two words that I wanted to be red and inked with Hawaiian Shores ink, then removed the tape and stamped. Next I taped the parts that had been Hawaiian Shores earlier and inked the remaining parts with Pure Poppy ink. I removed the tape, aligned with the Hawaiian Shores layer, and stamped.
I wanted to keep it colorful and thought that some Cosmo Cricket Baby Jane patterned papers would be just the ticket. I used several Spellbinders dies including Grand Labels Twenty-Three for the card base, a Bauble Blossoms One for that aqua trim layer, and Office Supplies for the distressed notebook layer.
That's it for today. I will be posting a winner of Colleen and Marianne's book as soon as I get a chance on Friday night. I teach late that night, so it could even be Saturday morning when it gets posted. Thank you for visiting!
