I have two cards to share with you today. The first features the gorgeous Goldfinch stamp. I couldn't wait to play with this image...we have so enjoyed watching the throngs of g0ldfinch visiting our bird feeder this summer!
To create this card, I first stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with the Copic markers shown below. I also used BG 0000 and BG 000 on the background.
I then cut out the image using an oval die and placed a black paper doily behind it. I placed foam sheeting behind the goldfinch oval and mounted it on yellow cardstock. A black and white ribbon was placed between the layers and at the top of the oval. A touch of green jute ribbon was added at the top as well. This was then placed on a purple mat and adhered to my black A2 card. Finally, I placed little jewels and the Serendipity Stamps Thanks die on the front.
My second card used the awesome SS And I Think to Myself die.
This little 4x4 card was so easy to make! I created the background using Distress Oxide Inks in Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, and Peacock Feathers. I then stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink, cut it out using a circle die, added a scalloped circle frame in black, and popped it up using foam sheeting. I added this onto a square frame and added some black jute ribbon and sequins. Super fun and easy!!
