Birthday card for Kerri-Anne
Hello there. Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. Here is the card I made for my good friend Kerri-Anne. Her birthday is tomorrow, 1st October. I hope you have a lovely day my dear friend. It's a little hard to see, but I have embossed the butterfly with a gorgeous teal glitter embossing powder. The friend circle is embossed and coloured with Stampin' Up! taken with teal marker. I have been neglecting my poor stamps lately as I am madly in love with my Copics and just can't get enough of them. As a very dear friend of mine always says' "It's a disease"... Hi Phil.. anyway, here is my attempt at getting back into stamping. For this card is used the following:
Stamps: Simple Friendship
Card Stock: Taken with Teal, Whisper White and Basic Black
Ink: Taken with Teal, Basic Black
Other: Teal embossing powder, black satin ribbon, Martha Stewart Valentine border punch, dimensionals.
A while ago, I purchased a tutorial from the very inspirational Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho. She has the most amazing tutorials and they are very easy to follow.
This is from the Purse-onally Perfect Notes tutorial. I have only made the purse and am hoping to make the cards to go inside sooner rather than later, lol. It was sooo much fun. Check out her blog here. She has many more tutorial and they are all fantastic.
For this project I used:
Card Stock: Basic Grey textured cs, Urban Oasis DSP, Sahara Sand and Whisper White
Stamp: Fifth Avenue Floral
Ink: Black Stazon, Baja Breeze
Other: Vintage Brads, Clear Rhinestone Brad, Square Punch, Sticky Strip.
Thank you to all the lovely ladies for taking time and leaving me encouraging comments. I appreciate each and every one of them.
Till next time, take care xo Jackie
