"Thinking of You"

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Well, I made it through Thanksgiving. I gained a few pounds, but who has not. I guess working in my craft room isn't counted as exercise.

Todays card is the second most demanded type of card that my better half asks me for, "Thinking of You". Here is the most recent one I made;

"Thinking of You"

The image used is from a "Close to My Heart" stamp set called "Childhood Portrait" #D1373. You can see the full set here.

As you can see, the image is a silhouette that I stamped using "Chocolate Ink". All of the images in this set are silhouettes. I love the silhouette type stamps because I can use them to make card very quick. No coloring.

My hand is not that steady so I used a 2" square acrylic stamp block placed over my stamped image, and using a "Chocolate Marker" drew dashed lines around the block centered over the image. The sentiment was stamped with " Juniper" ink. The small and large hearts where stamped then cut out.

I curled the upper right and lower left corner of the stamped mat by slightly moistening the paper then rolling them slightly.

The card is very simple and quick to make. I hope you will give it a try.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!
