On Thurday I made a card without line stamps and Copic Markers. I haven’t done that in a long time. I just love to color and have a hard time not to use it on my cards.

I made this card for Thursday’s Way to Use it Challenge as well as with the sketch from last weeks Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge.  I started with cutting Tissue paper with the Blossom Spellbinders die and stamping them with Crafty Secrets Artsy Banner stamp in Vintage Photo distress ink.  An Antique Brad was put through all layers and the edges were sponged with Vintage Photo ink.

A heart was cut and embossed out of Classic White Neenah cardstock with Spellbinders Classic Heart die. The edges were sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink and the sentiment from Crafty Secrets Sweet Kids was stamped in the center with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.  The heart was layered on a piece of Neenah Canyon Brown cardstock that had been cut and embossed with Scallop Heart die. The edges of the sponged heart were paper pierced.

A 3 1/2″ square of Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, after it’s upper corners were rounded. Melissa Frances lace from the Beige Ribbon collection was adhered to the bottom of that layer and the heart and flower were attached to it with dimensionals.

A 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Once Upon A Springtime paper was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Canyon Brown paper before the layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 1/2″ x 11 1/2″ piece of textured Kraft cardstock folded in half.

Latte Kaisercraft Pearls finish off the card. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
