Hello there, lovelies!

Today I’m celebrating my 200th day on Instagram with a thank you card made with all of you who have supported me in mind.  Thank you so much for joining me in this crafty journey!

20180825_225246This card uses some of my favorite items from Simon Says Stamp.  I stamped the large spray of flowers from the Beautiful Flowers stamp set in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White #80 Classic Crest cardstock.  I colored the flowers with R81, R83, R85, and R89 and the leaves with G20, G21, G24, and G28.  I also used a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add white dots to the stamen.

Then I die cut the Thanks sentiment, from the Big Thanks die set, four times.  Once out of Neenah Solar White, and three times out of #110 white Recollections cardstock.  I used the same four red Copics to color the Neenah Solar White die cut.  I kept the die cut in the negative space and backed it with Post-It tape to keep it stable while I colored.  I started with the lightest color and then added layers of darker and darker colors, from the bottom up, to create an ombre effect.  Then I stacked and adhered all the die cuts together to create a dimensional sentiment.

I placed the card front into a Misti stamping tool and stamped the “for making my day brighter,” from the Big Thanks Words stamp set, in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.  Then I adhered the Thanks die cut with Ranger Multi Medium Matte glue.  To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting, and for your ongoing support!
