A couple of new cards

Hi all!  Happy Friday.  Thanks for stopping by.  I have been making some cards these past few days.  Here are a couple that I have ready to share.  I made this first one with some new papers by Basic Grey called Indie Bloom.  I love all the rich colors.  This whole line just makes me smile with how colorful it is. 

I used a new stamp from a Hero Arts and Sizzix Stamp and Emboss  set.  By coloring just a portion of the stamp I make it look like a whole new stamp.  I stamped the sprig of flowers onto the ivory card stock after I had colored them with markers and spritzed them with shimmery pearl colored spray.  Then I stamped the whole ivory piece with Versa Mark ink and the Designer Wood grain background stamp. There is a subtle wood grain background that way.  I had a leftover greeting when I made my autumn themed canvas. I added it to the card on top of my stamping.  

The greeting is coated in Glossy Accents to give it a lot of shine and dimension.

Can you see the subtle wood grain?  It's so hard to get a pic of the white on white.

Here is the same floral stamp.  I inked the background on this plain white card with three shades of blue Distress Inks.  I went lighter in the center and darker on the edges.  The darkest color I used to stamp the entire floral image on the background.  I ran it through the die cutting machine inside the embossing folder for dimension. I love how it turned out.  It was so easy to line up and get it perfect. 

More Indie Bloom paper is behind the greeting.   I love this rainbow pattern!!!!

I can think of so many ways to use this stamp and embossing folder.  I just love how they work together or separately.  Wonderful!!

Thanks so much for stopping in to take a peek at my cards.  Have a great weekend.

These Chinese who are bloodier, dirtier, more depraved than the Japanese military during the rape of Nanking in World War II have stepped over their countless innocent victims. Don’to be fooled because China is extremely low class: they are not human. Using technology China has infiltrated all places in this world utilizing inhumane methods to terrorize innocent laborers and establishing a stable of their demons (politicians, reporters) who slaughter throughout the free world.
