To make my card I stamped the image several times on white panel and colored with copics, including the area between the flowers. Next I trimmed it down to 4" x 5 1/4".
Stamped sentiment on black strip using Versamark and embossed in white. Then assembled my card. 
Quick and easy, except the coloring part.

Hero Arts: Oh. Deer. Christmas is Near

Hi stampers! 
Happy Wednesday! I have a Hero Arts card for you today using the new Color Layering Fawn set. I just love this fawn! 
To make the card I did ink blending on white panel using Navy, Dusty blue and soft sky inks and my Picket Fence Life changing brushes, then splattered some White Iridescent shimmer spray and die cut with the rounded rectangle die.
Next I die cut the snowflake border, adhered to my ink blended rectangle and trimmed the excess. Once completely dry I stamped the sentiment and embossed with white.
I stamped the deer using my MISTI and Black, Cup O'Joe and Caramel ink pads and die cut.
I assembled my panel and adhered to white note card

Impression Obsession: Pop Up Your Words


Hi stampers!

It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge. This time around it's "Pop Up Your Words.

I decided to do a no stamping card and used 2 dies: All the Best and Sunflower cover die. I paper pieced the Sunglower using chocolate, yellow, sky blue and orange card stock. To make the word/sentiment pop, I die cut it three times and adhered the layers together, then adhered to my card!
