PaperTrey Ink - Bethlehem

Happy Saturday!

Today, I have the second make-n-take card from 
the women's event through my church.

This one is a simple Christmas card, which uses a die set 
from PaperTrey Ink called Bethlehem.

Like last week's card, I wanted to do something which 
would be easy for everyone.  So this card has a gold leaf
and sponging technique. 

Step 1 - Use a Krylon 18kt gold leaf pen to create a gold 
border on the white 3.75 x 5" cardstock.

Step 2 - Sponge the Bethlehem city with Fine Linen ink 

Step 3 - Stamp sentiment on the sponged Bethlehem.
Then assemble the card with double stick tape.

PaperTrey Ink Die: Bethlehem (3 die set)
PaperTrey Ink Stamp Set: Nativity Mini Stamp set
PaperTrey Ink Cardstock: Dark Indigo and White
PTI Inks: Fine Linen and Dark Indigo
Krylon 18kt gold leaf pen

Simon Says Stamp - Wild Beauty Birthday

Happy Saturday!

Last weekend, I taught a class for a women's event 
through church.  It was a fun get together to share our
hobbies and talents.  

This is one of 2 cards I made
for the event and the ladies had the opportunity to 
make one of each card.

This card uses a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, 
called Wild Beauty and the sentiment is from a set called 'Happy'.

Step 1 - Stamp the sentiment and flower outlines in black.

Step 2 - Stamp the flowers in Hawaiian Shores, Limeade Ice
and Spring Rain.

Step 3 - The 3 stems were drawn with a black multi-liner pen 
and white centers were added to the left and middle flower 
with white gel pen.

Step 4 - Sequin detail was added to the base of the flowers.

It turned out to be a fun card to introduce the ladies
to 2-step stamping, especially since some had never stamped before.  
The clear stamps really made it easy for beginners.  
It was a fun project and night of crafts and learning.

2 Cute Ink - Honey Bear

Happy Sunday!

I thought I would post today, rather than next Saturday,
because this sweet image is a freebie in August!

So there is still time to get this freebie - Heidi is offering it 
on her Facebook fan page.  Heidi contacted me a couple weeks ago
asking if I would make a couple cards for her.  

She sent me 2 new images, Honey Bear and Turtle Birthday.
I will have the second card posted in a couple weeks.
