Sunset on the Lake – Enjoy Your Day

This is the second card I made using Penny Black’s On the Lake. This time I wanted the scene to be a sunset. I stamped the image with Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder. I added a circle of full adhesive post-it for the moon and I used different shade of yellow for most of the sky, preserving only a little bit of blue at the top. The lake was ink blended with different shades of blue Distress Oxide Inks. I decided to have a red moon and used the negative circle die cut post-it to color it with different red oxide inks.

The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I added several layers of white and black mats behind the image and adhered them all to a white cardstock base.

Only the Best for Your Birthday

I saw this beautiful scene stamp from Penny Black and thought it would make great masculine birthday cards. My husband’s favorite color is blue, and I know a lot of other men like that color as well so I decided to use various blues for the color scheme for this card.

I stamped the image StazOn Midnight Blue Ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This allows you to ink blend over the image, preserving the intensity of the stamping.

I cut a circle from a full adhesive post-it note and placed it where I wanted the moon to be in the image. I then ink blended the lake and sky with different blue Distress Oxide Inks and then removed the post-it circle.

The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Celebrate Your Day Charlie Brown

I met my husband while he was playing Charlie Brown at summer stock theater. When I saw some cute Charlie Brown Peanut images on Coloring 4-Kids I couldn’t resist making some cards with them. This first card is the peanuts gang ready to play some ball. I colored it with Copic Markers, die cut it using the Silhouette Cameo and adhered it to an ink blended background. Wish his birthday wasn’t in October, but someone else from our generation will love it.
