Dull Glossy Paper, Thinking of You

Good morning and happy Thursday!

This card is white cardstock folded at top with a swatch of dull gloss colored with the edge of an ink pad. I just start at the edge and rub the paper across the ink pad in each direction until I feel it has enough color. The stripes on the purple piece of paper is created with HH28 (link below). The flower is colored with alcohol inks. Links to stamps and cutting die are below!

Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Friendship

Happy Thursday! I love my copic markers and using them mostly on dull glossy paper but you have to use dark markers unlike white card stock that usually likes lighter markers better. I have charts with the colors to help me match to paper.

Sorry the picture is not very good but these charts really help me with my color selection

Grilling in a snow storm!!

Good Evening! Well Thanksgiving is over. It’s back to work. We had a fabulous time with good weather for travel.

I’m a little behind on blogging but I had to make a few cards. You will notice something about all the cards this week. They will all have something in common. Hope you enjoy.

I also included a picture of Kevin grilling in the snow storm we had today. It was one of those perfect snowstorms. It was beautiful.

Happy November! I thought I had better get back in the swing of things! We’ve been pretty occupied around our house. I don’t know where the time goes. My friend Heidi made some cards a while back and so I thought I would post them. She does amazing work. I hope you enjoy I got to stamp most of the day yesterday and it was so much fun. Sometimes you forget how relaxing it can be.

Dull Glossy Paper, Thinking of You

Hello all! For this card, I used three scallop ovals again with a patterned paper in the background. The white paper is dull gloss and here is the link – https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/dull-glossy-paper. Stamp links are below!

Happy Wednesday!

Keeping it simple with this card. First, cut out three scalloped ovals of white dull gloss paper and stamp the flowers. Very important to set the ovals aside to dry before coloring. Then stamp the words on the lower portion of a 4×5.25” piece of white dull gloss. Again, important to let ink dry before coloring and assembling! The middle scallop oval is popped up with a 3D dot. Links are below!
