Happy Birthday Rebecca!

A card for my daughter whose birthday is coming up!The scenery stamps are Stampscapes, and the greeting is a calligraphy one from Quietfire Designs. I really like the elegance of the Suzanne’s stamps. The frosty trees are a symbol of our winter this year…Dec was exceptionally cold, Jan is always cold and here it is most of Feb gone and it has been very cold!It was a sharp -35 this morning when I walked the dog, but no wind at all so at least that was a positive.

Just Because

The background is layers of Distress paint, then pearl embossing powder to a background stamp, then Distress Inks, then Some partial images stamped in stone grey StazOn ink.

Just Because is a lovely new calligraphy font stamp from “Quietfire Design”  (http://www.quietfiredesign.ca) Suzanne makes beautiful greetings and verses. You will see me use them more often in the future

Edited to add: I entered this card in the “Queen of Hearts” challenge at Quietfire Designs and won judge’s choice! This was my awesome prize…stamps!DSCF8893Thanks Suzanne!

Layers of Ink

Started with 110 lb card stock, inked the script with Staz On Stone Grey ink, then ran it through the Sizzix with an embossing folder. Used Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks to highlight the embossed areas, Black Soot Distress Ink for the edges as well as along the edges of the embossed areas to make them pop a bit more. Happy Birthday from Stampin Up  inked with Versa Mark and black embossing powder to 40lb vellum (scroll cut on the Silhouette)
