For today, I have two cards I wanted to share with you.  First one...It using the dies in the set, no stamping!  :D



I used the thankful die and shadow die for it and the maple leaf die/  I started to stamp on it, but liked how the white looked!  The 'frame' I created using Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers on water paper.  It looks better in person, you can see all the sparkly goodness!  And next, I did do some stamping...and heat embossing, and used glossy paper, and ....ok, well, here it is!  :D
ANd even some hand stitiching!  :D  I also made this background with the Spectrum Sparkly markers.  I sat down and played the other day and this is one of the background I made while playing.  The leaves where stamped and then heat embossed in white embossing powder so they would really pop off the page.  I just LOVE this set!  Fall is my favorite time of year, and this set just makes me feel like its about here!

Awesome cards Cat. I love the one with just the dies. I was wondering how the Thankful dies worked together and you answered that question and now I've GOT to order the die that didn't come with the kit. The white leaves on the colored background are lovely too. Thanks for the awesome inspiration.

Kim Brown-Blyleven said...

Love how you used the Thankful sentiment!

Becky Hagger said...

I'm new to crafting cards and love to look at Gina K for ideas from her talented bloggers. AMAZING!

Lisa K said...

Very nice cards! I love the watercolor look on the second card. I have never used glossy paper. It seems to allow the ink to flow freely. The frame on the first card is so sparkly and bright. I like the thankful and how you created it with the shadow. Very cool.
