I am starting with a card  I had over the Hero Arts blog on Saturday as part of the countdown to creativity. Head over to the blog for more details on this card.


For my next card I used the fancy border die from the kit and die cut it from black card stock. I cut off the swing with small scissors. I took piece of Bristol paper and blended some Bubble Gum, Orchid and Grape Juice inks. Once completely dry using the Intense black ink pad I stamped my images and sentiment. Then assembled my whole card.




Next is pretty simple card. I used the stencil from the kit to do some dry embossing on white card stock. Then stamped the sentiment and embossed with Copper Embossing powder. For the copper strip, I applied some sticky strip on white card stock and poured embossing powder then heat set it. Trimmed to size and adhered behind my embossed panel. Assembled me card. 


For my last card I did some masking to make the scene. I used the new Sprign Day Reactive Ombre ink. To create clouds I used Sky and Clouds stencils and a wet paper towel to lift up the ink. When completely dry I stamped the images. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark on black card stock and embossed with PW110 white embossing powder. I adhered my panel and sentiment onto black note card.
