Giving Thanks!

Hello Die-Versions Fans,

Today I am going to share with you a Thanksgiving card that I made:

For this A2 card I started with brown card stock for the base of the card.  Next I added a piece of patterned paper.  Then I took the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor cardstock and I used the rougher side and added some Tim Holtz Distress inks and some distress markers and colored the whole piece of paper and then blend the colors together with a baby wipe.  Then I cut out the Whispers Old Oak Leaves die twice with this paper and added that to the card.  Then I cut out the Whispers Giving Thanks die in green paper and I used just the words for the sentiment on the card.  Then I used my VersaMark pen and some clear embossing powder and heat embossed it to make the colors stand out more.

In keeping with the Die-Versions Think Pink Blog Hop I made another Breast Cancer Awareness card:

For this A2 card I started with pink card stock for the base of the card.  Then I took a piece of Authentique paper and inked the edges and added that to the card. Next I cut out the Whispers Lacey Dots border in light pink and added that to the top of the card. Then I cut out the boots from the Wee Petite Shoe Collection die twice, once in pink and once in black shimmer paper.  I cut out the sentiment using the Marker Micro font in more of the black shimmer paper.  I stamped the Julie Nutting skirt stamp with VersaMark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then fussy cut it out to put over the boots.  I used Diamond Stickles on the boots.  I added a BCA ribbon and a sequin and then used Glossy Accents over the ribbon.
