Hello again.. still playing catch up. I made a couple of thank you cards with the Reverse Confetti Thanks Square die. It’s a nice one to put over a fun background panel you have created or patterned paper.
For this card I created a Pearl Alcohol Ink background I think on the silver sparkle Alcohol ink paper. Such a pretty look. I keep saying I am going to keep notes as I go along creating but I was knee deep in lots of Thank You’s to create and I always forget. Then just die cut the sentiment and you are about done.
Here is one more shot to show the shimmer and shine on the card.
I made another one using a flower I had already colored. I didn’t like the color of the other flowers so I stamped more and colored them. I used Zig Clean Color pens on these. I also went over the leaves and flowers with a shimmer pen which is hard to see in the photo. I think I went back over the black too to make it nice and bold.
The background is just a piece of cardstock that I feel was a little more yellow orange in real life.
I die cut the thanks and attached everything to the card.

Howdy! Here’s the two Fathers Day Cards I made. One for my Dad who just turned 90 and one for my hubby. My hubby has been a great Dad to my son.
The first one is the one I made for my Dad. He liked to sail so I thought the ocean scene would be nice.
For the background I did a few layers of Oxide Distress ink letting them dry in between on watercolor paper. I cut out the reef border using a Hero Arts die.
The fish were fun… I used a piece of Ranger Silver Sparkle Alcohol Ink Cardstock and put some alcohol ink on it. It comes out so cool with such a nice shimmer. Then I die cut a couple of the fish from one of the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero sets.
For the sentiment I used a Hero Arts stamp set and a Hero Arts Ombre ink pad.

Here is the card I made for my hubby. He uses the two coffee makers on the card to make coffee. One is a french press and the other is a moka pot. We love Tahoe and he has a black mug with a bit of a scene on it and it says Lake Tahoe. I tried drawing the scene on there but it just wasn’t working so I just decided to write the Lake Tahoe part.
For this card I made the background somehow. Ha. It’s probably just some watercolor put on simply or Distress ink. I added the coffee rings using a stencil.
I die cut a couple of rectangles with a die with double stitching.
The mug, french press and moka pot are stamped and heat embossed. I colored them with Copics. The mug sits up a little higher with foam tape under it.
The sentiment is heat embossed using brown embossing powder.

Howdy! I have a sparkle and shine project for you today. Wow it’s a new month (time is always flying by) and a new challenge over at a2z Scrapbooking. It is Sparkle and Shine.
For the background of my card it’s about shimmer. I put some alcohol ink on Silver Sparkle Alcohol Ink Cardstock. Let me just say it is a great look.
I then used just the center part of the Hero Arts Reef Border die to cut the fun window out of the Neenah white paper.
For the turtle and seahorse I stamped those and die cut them. They are from two different Hero Arts sets. After die cutting them I added Stickles to the turtle and down the seahorse (a little hard to see in the photo). I used Hero Arts cube inks for the turtle and seahorse. The seahorse ink is Hero Arts new reactive ink.
For the sentiment I die cut that out of the same shimmer panel used for the background.
