This one was so much fun! Cut the postage stamp edge with an edge punch. Made the tiny envelope on the cricut. The tiny heart is again the center of my double heart punch. The post card stamp is stamped in a dark brown memento ink. Then I masked the image and stamped the background with a words stamp (I think it might be in French) with Hero arts light brown shadow ink. This is on an ecru cardstock. The edge was lost, so I masked a straight line on the inside of the card and sponged on the darker ink. Love how it came out! The message is "what lovely news" and from Gina K.
The color didn't photograph well as it is the same as the outside! I used Tim Holtz paper for the calendar and frame around it.The little tag is colored with the spica pens, and her name is on the reverse side. It is tied with brown and white bakers twine. The Happy Birthday is heat embossed white. Don't know why it photographed so poorly. I stamped the inside to match the outside with the kitchen things. This is also the first time I tried the new copics paper! Got to say, it was much easier to color on. It blended much easier, was a whole lot easier to stay inside of the lines also. It is wonderfully smooth to the touch. I think that when I got into digital stamping and had so much trouble finding the right combo for me so the copics wouldn't run, that it was really a good thing. I colored on Staples cardstock. It was tricky, but I kept at it. I really learned a lot about how I color. There is a paper out there for everyone. We all color differently - some of us have a light touch (I think you have to learn this one) and some of us put way too much ink down and then have to fix it. Like everything, you have to be better at fixing than doing!! Practice, but do fix as that is when you really learn. Hope you all like what I am doing. I am loving this Clean and Simple class! Hugs to you all, please leave me a comment so I know whether you like my stuff or not!! Barb F
