2 cards to share

Hello. . .this first card I made for a lady who fell and broke her ankle and she is not to bear any weight on her foot for at least 6 weeks. In about 10 days, another x-ray will be taken and see if the bone is growing and what the next step is. The image is from MorningStar and I'm crazy about this stamp! I use glossy accents to make the cast 'pop', though the scan doesn't show it.

The blue or teal color background, is called faux corduroy. You brayer ink over a sheet of toilet paper and in person, it is very real looking!

This second card, you already can see is a birthday card. The lighthouse is a stamp and stencil set, from AJ's Country Stampin'. I stamped the Happy B/d image on vellum and attached it with Glue Dots made for vellum. Have you ever used them? I was skeptical, but the product works very well! I will be using them again along with vellum more!

Thank you, for taking a look.
May you have a pleasant day. . .


  1. Wonderful cards,, that whole teal b/g for the bear is tp??? You affixed it to plain c/s before cutting? Very interesting!

    I especially love the second card. Did you color with Copics? You did a beautiful job matching the colors you used for the image to the DP, which also is lovely and so reminiscent of flowing water!

    Hugs, Kathy

  2. Hi Kathy, I put double sticker (sheet) tape on the TP, cut it out, and then applied it to the card. To attach the image layer to the TP, glue dots do NOT work, so I glued it.

    The b/d card is a stamp and stencil image, so no I did not use copics. I stippled color on the lighthouse scene, using the stencils that come with the stamp.

    Hope this helps. . .and thank you, for the comments ---Inkyhive
