Hello and Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing yet another thank you card! For my background I used a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil called Speckles with some Golden Molding Paste. I mixed in some Vintage Photo Tim Holtz Distress Stain to give it a light brown color.

The images are from a stamp set by Hero Arts called Delicate Leaf Clusters. I stamped the same image three times with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye, Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey. The thanks die is from Simon Says Stamp.

I'm so happy it's Friday! Hoping to get to spend some time in my craft room this weekend. I'm going to go through all the challenges that are coming up and see if I can inspire myself into creating some more cards!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You

Same Stap Different Look

No card for a challenge today. I used the same cling stamp from Hero Arts called Leaf and Floral Background that I used on this card. The only difference is that this time I used white embossing powder. On the first card I used clear embossing powder even though it looks like I used white. For the background I used patterned paper from BasicGrey. I really love this stamp and know that I will be using it over and over. The look is so different depending on what patterned paper you use behind it. Even coloring the background with distress ink like I did on the first card make it such a versatile stamp.

For the sentiment I used another Hero Arts stamp from the You're So Kind set. For the first time I used a Kraft Dye Ink that I bought from PaperTrey Ink. I've never used kraft ink before and it reminds me of how much it looks like you just stamped with versamark ink on kraft cardstock like I did with this card.

I added some bling from My Mind's Eye and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink. Love how this card turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!

CAS(E) this Sketch #106

A Special Note of Thanks

Today I'm sharing a very simple card I created for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. I was just perusing all the cards that have been submitted and all the design team cards and they are beautiful! 

For this card I used a Darice embossing folder on the edge of my card. It is one that came in a three-pack and is called Simple Pattern. I colored the pattern with Tim Holtz Distress inks in spiced marmalade, shabby shutters and mustard seed. The sentiment is from Hero Arts called Special Note of Thanks. The bling is by Doodlebug called sprinkles.
