This is a card which is great to look at and needs to be appreciated because it is very labor intensive! There are lots of colors which were put on one color at a time while masking the other areas. The colors were allowed to dry. Then the paste was added over the stencil. Once the paste was on, the stencil was removed and loose glitter was poured over the whole egg. Once dry, the egg was cut out and adhered to the card. (The words were first embossed onto the card in white embossing powder and the organza ribbon was placed before the egg was attached.)

Here is another card from our paste class. First the black paste is spread over the stencil and dried. Then the stencil is placed back over the image and a glue surface covers the paste. Then pearlex is dabbed on. The stencil is taken off, and you are all done! The image was added to a bronze metallic paper, and then to a red metallic paper. A Chinese coin was glued on last.

Had a very fun class last Thursday. We did cards with stencils and paste. Here is a surprise card that was added to the class. It was done on metallic silver paper. The stencil was placed over the paper and then black matte paste was spread on top. Once the stencil was lifted off, loose glitter was poured over the wet paste and then it was set aside to dry. Once dry, the silver paper was attached to black metallic paper, and then layered onto mirror silver paper.

It's been extra cold around here, but Savannah gave me a breath of spring. So now I've got spring on my mind. Naturally, it shows up in my card making. Have taken a large tulip here and inked the head of the flower with a pigment ink. Then inked the stem with a green pigment ink and stamped it onto the paper. The words are by Verses and were inked with a Versafine ink.

Another Kalidacolor card. The color was brayered onto glossy paper after first stamping the image with a Versamark pad and then stamping it onto the white paper. Once the Kalidacolor is brayered over it, the image shows up as a resist. Under the image the words were inked in black. The words are also by Hero Arts.

Back to birthday cards! A piece of glossy white paper was brayered with "Cappachino" Kalidacolor pad. The a plastic stencil was placed over top and blue ink was sprayed on it. Once dry, it was mounted onto the card. The words by Posh were inked with "Paris Dusk" Momento pad.

In between birthday cards, I also needed to send out a thank you to a friend. The Hero Arts words were embossed with opaque white embossing powder onto paper that was cut with a Memory Box die. This was mounted onto white paper cut with a Sizzix die. Then this was mounted onto the ribbon which was wrapped around the pink card. It was fun to make a card with such a fresh spring feeling.

March is approaching fast. It is a month of many birthdays as well as two holidays this year. Ack! So I'm working on birthday cards. Here is one ready. The white paper was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Then "Caribbiean" Kalidacolor was brayered over top of the paper. The words were inked onto a piece of vellum and placed over the paper. Then it was mounted onto the card.

This image was stamped in Momento Black onto a cream colored card. Then the image was colored in using a Kalidacolor "Flannel" pad and a resevore pen. Because the pad is waterbased, the resevore pen causes the ink to give a watercolor effect on the paper. Then once the ink was dry, Flower Soft was applied to white glue to the middle of the flower. Distress ink "Antique Linen" was sponged around the edges of the circle. The image was punched with a green Giga punch by Marvy. The words are by Amuse.

Ever use Michael Stong's stamps? His stamps have a striking graphic design look to them. They are great to use over brayered Kalidacolored glossy paper. This dragonfly was stamped with a black dye ink and then was outlined with a white Opaque pen. Then the image was cut out and mounted with foam tape to the punched out black glossy circle. The blue paper was embossed with an embossing folder. It was mounted onto the same colored card with foam tape. This was the first time I tried a tone on tone card. Always good to stretch myself with something new.

Here's the card for the Make It Take It at Angela's Happy Stamper store for next Thursday. The color was applied with the use of a Dove Blender pen and Memento pads. Just swipe the tip of the pen over the pad and then apply to the image. It gives a nice watercolor effect. Some extra tint was added to the overall image by sponging on some Distress Antique Linen. The whole image was cut along the outer edges and glued onto a Memory Box card.

Hope you have a good day and are reminded that you are loved by someone-be it a spouse, parent, or friend. Took this Great Impression stamp and inked it with black ink. Then colored it in with Copic markers. Punched out some little hearts and attached them with foam tape to the flower heads. Ran a red pad over the edges to highlight them. Then laid some Hero Arts self adhesive tape across the bottom of the card. Need an extra Valentine? Come to Angela's Happy Stamper store today and make one of these for free!
