Good Morning, Thank You card

Love this Sizzix embossing folder die cut ... I decided it needed to be a sunrise in the woods with a little robin greeting the day ... after I did the ink sunrise I embossed that cardstock with the tree, then sanded off the color so it would look better, then mounted it behind the Sizzix embossing/die cut one and added the bird for that set ... oh I colored the bird with watercolor markers first the popdot it on the branch ... the Thanks is in that die cut/embossing set also ...



Guy cards ... or not

The light reflects off the metallic paper and I didn't use a flash ... anyway the background is using Tim Holtz new 3D embossing folder and it really does make a deep impression ... don't know if you can tell but the left one is copper, middle is brass/gold and right is silver/stainless ... I wiped them with black acrylic paint then wiped it off pretty quickly to get the detail effect ... love doing these and will be making more in the future ... oh I got another 3D folder that I will use also



Spotlight Cards


New stamp by Stampers Anonymous for Tim Holtz .... it's huge a big diamond of flowers so cool ... I just decide to use part of it for these cards
