More Giraffe's - A Thank You Card

I am back today with my 3rd PaperDoor creation using this months uber adorable Giraffes kit! You just gotta love these Giraffes <3! This time I opted for a pretty simple Thank You card.

I used the leaves stamps from the kit and stamped with Versamark ink onto white cardstock. I heat embossed using white embossing powder. Using mowed lawn distress ink and a dense brush I inked the background over the leaves and sprinkled on some more green ink. Once the ink was dry I carefully wiped off the ink from the white leaves and making them stand out even more.

I attached the Giraffe and the sentiment with foam tape to add some dimension. Layered the image panel onto a brown designer paper panel from the Giraffes pack and that onto a A2 sized card.

A few gemstones finish off my Giraffe Thank You card.

Here are the products from the Whimsy Store I've used:

       Nuve - Deluxe Adhesive   

Crafty Foam Tape White    Memento Full-Size Ink Pad - Tuxedo Black        

Copic Sketch Markers Cadmium Red [Pack Of 3] (3PK-R27S)   VersaFine CLAIR Ink Pad - Nocturne (black)

Beach Retreat!

Happy Sunday Everyone! I'm here today with a CAS watercolor card showcasing the Beach Retreat clear stamp set. This is a wonderful and versatile set and makes for a quick card. It is also ideal for watercolor beginners because of the simple scene.  

I stamped on the back of a Canson XL 140lb watercolor paper with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. To color the image I used my Albrecht Dürer watercolor pencils from Faber Castell. The sentiment is included in the set.

I used a black card base and layered the image onto a piece of the Mermaid designer papers

For a bit of bling I finished off my card by adding some gemstones. 

Here is a list of all the Whimsy goodies I used on my card:

*NEW Beach Retreat Clear Stamps   *NEW 6x6 Paper Pack - Mermaid   VersaFine CLAIR Ink Pad - Nocturne (black)

Sparkletz - Winter Wishes   Sparkletz - Peppermint Jazz
