For this first card I used a wreath builder template to stamp my design on a 4x4 square of paper. This allowed me to get my stamps in the same place all around the square. I used VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturnal to stamp my images and heat embossed using clear embossing powder to add a bit of shine. I then colored my images using Chameleon markers. The apple in the middle I went over using clear Wink of Stella brush pen for shimmer. This panel was then attached to the star pattern paper and placed on a 4.25" x 5.5" top folding card base. The sentiment was stamped and cut with a die from my stash and attached using foam tape for dimension.
This second card I used Versaclair Morning Mist to stamp the background stamp, and heat embossed using White embossing powder. I then used Distress Oxides to add color to the panel. The little boy is from the School Tots stamp set, colored with Chameleon markers and then attached using foam tape. This little boy and his marbles are ready to go to school. For those that have followed me since the beginning of my blog back in 2015, my little grandson starts PreK this month, so this card was made with happy thoughts of him.
