Just wanted to say Hello

Just wanted to say HI 2015
Needless to say this is not one of my favorite cards. At the Outlaws Twisted Thursday the twisted for this week is to make a “clean and simple card” (CAS). For a lot of people that is some that is super easy but not for me. You have no idea how much I wanted to do more to this card and I do not like it at all. I added some Speia accents it is a dimensional medium and the color is a soft pink not we need to honest it looks like a blob of jelly. I used distress inks colors aged mahogany, tattered rose and Victorian velvet. Added the ink on a piece of tape and applied it to the card. Sponged around the edges with Victorian velvet. I stamped with versafine onyx black a couple stamps from inkadikado. So this is all I’m going to say about this card.
I wanted to let everyone know that I’m going to be at the Expo in Milwaukee craft fair it is going to be at the state fair this year address 640 S. 84th Street. Stop by and see me I’m going to be demoing for Heartfelt creations on Friday from 9 tell 6. I would love if you live in my area and are going to go to stop by and say Hello, I would love to meet you. I’m going on Saturday also but just to see the craft show because on Friday I will not have time to do that.
Thanks for stopping by, you are all the greatest.

Other then cutting out the dies, I stamped the base of the card inside and out randomly with Brilliance ink color beige using a stamp from stampendous called flourishes. I used a cream color card stock.

Using the brilliance ink I sponged around almost everything.

Having Fun 2015  r
The punches UI used to make my card are Stampin up’s Owl, the branch from Stampin up’s bird, circle 3/4 inch punch, circle 1 inch punch and another circle 1 3/4 inch. Embossing folder called Argyle from Cuttlebug.

Having Fun 2015  l
I glued the circles on the white card stock and them added my embossing folded and run it though the cuttlebug machine. That embossed all the circles with the white card stock. My sentiments are from The Angel Company from the set “It’s the little things”. Had some left over orange ribbon on my desk so added that to the card.

Having Fun 2015  i
For the inside just made another Owl. Wanted to use up the hearts that punch out with the Owl so added them to the button with several of the circles.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope the weather by you is okay It has been raining here off and on but we really do need the rain. The grass is finally turning green. I know some areas are pretty bad so I hope you are safe and dry.

Martha Steward butterfly around the corner for my strip and I cut off about 1 inch. I wanted to use a strong spellbinders die the one I picked is lattice rectangles. Paper is from The Paper Studio stack called Country Road. My sentiment is from The Angel Company.
Its the little things 2015  i
The inside, really did not do much. Under here is what the button of the front look like. I wanted you to see how it looked.
Its the little things 2015  b
Added a couple flowers and a bow.
Its the little things 2015  f
These are the copic I used to color my image. I colored the background with copic but I also used Pebbles chalks. Just incase you do not know I wanted to talk about using chalks with copics. One thing you should always remember if you are going to color with copic markers and use chalks also, USED copic first and add you chalks after you are done with the copics. What would happen with your copic markers the chalkes could rune your tips by gumming them with the chalk residue. That would work pretty much the same if you use color pencils. use you copic first then use your pencils. I added the grass with the prisma color pencils over the chalk. I did not want to use my copics on the chalks. If you have any questions let me know and I hope you understand this.
I also used Wink a Stella clear, black and brown. Sky star gelly roll pen.

Here is the close up of the image. The image is #378.
