Pink & Green Floral Thanks

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! I hope all of you had a wonderful year. I was fortunate enough to spend lots of time crafting this year.

The making of this card:
I stamped the Altenew Thank You 2022 stamp set that I received as a surprise gift in the mail. This gift helped push me back to my coloring. So, thank you for that! I stamped the flower in black ink and then colored it with Altenew markers R437, R318, R403, R601, G702, G715. Then, I fussy cut the image. I used the grid like die cut in green. Then, I cut it down and made it into an accent strip. I decided to separate the 2 flowers. After I fussy cut those, I glued several strips of paper to the back of the flowers to give them dimensions.

I decided to stamp the sentiment, thanks, onto the same shade of green paper as the accent strip. I stamped it with a white pigment ink and actually had success! Hooray! I used a light pink cardstock and ink blended over it with the Rouge ink color. I cut this piece slightly larger than the green strip of paper and glued them together. I placed them towards the bottom of the card. And there you have it! My card to wrap up the year for the

We’ve had sickness after sickness over here. After our 1st ER trip over the past 2 weeks, I needed something joyful to make. Winter themed cards always give me joy. I decided to get my copics out and go to town. Coloring is super therapeutic for me. I’ve had these people and hedgehog stamps since Christmas. I’m glad I finally got to use them!

I chose my colors based off of the Color Hues Challenge. I used my brayer and applied ink directly to the embossing folder. I think applied ink in the middle of the embossed paper with an ink blending brush. T. hen, I colored the people and hedgehog. I originally only had the girl and hedgehog but, I didn’t like it, so I took the hedgehog off and added the boy and the hedgehog. I had stamped the joy on cardstock and die cut it. Then die cut 2 scrap papers in with the joy die cut also. I glued them all together to give my joy more dimension. I used my Misti to help stamp the ‘to the world’ sentiment.
