This card uses the fun, new set “Sweet Strawberries” illustrated by Theresa Momber! I don’t know about you but I like to kick back on my patio in the summer and have a glass of wine or a nice, cold drink like a strawberry margarita (or pineapple pina colada) on a weekend night! So I couldn’t wait to ink up this image and create the fresh feel of summertime! A few strips of patterned scrap papers, embossed red cs (pure luxury lipstick red), some leafy scrolls and pearls finish this cool-treat up!
The image was colored with Copics and then I added some dots/striations to the drink to replicate frosty bubbles and the glass. Then I added a thick layer of Crystal Lacquer to make it smooth and shiny. The strawberries at the bottom I colored up, cut up and then added with dimensionals. A frosty treat to enjoy indeed!
My second card uses Tami Mayberry’s “Vintage Notes” and I decided to make a love note project…it could be a Valentine’s Day card or just a special card for a loved one. I distressed all my papers for a shabby-chic look and I stamped the notepad page image onto patterned paper. The sentiments I stamped off once time so the ink impression was a bit softer…the “it’s the little things you do” sentiment is from the new “One In a Million” stamp set (free with the purchase of any 3 stamp sets from Gina K). Then I die-cut a few hearts, added some twill ribbon, scrolls cut with my Silhouette Cameo and a fun button to finish it all off.
