Best of 2011

I’m going to share two different cards made using the same set, 1900 Cars set 285. For the travel card above, I used two different map papers, a new banner die set and labels 17  from Spellbinders. The antique autos on both cards were colored using a combination of  markers and Prismacolor pencils. For the Travel greeting, I used a bookplate die and bowed it slightly when I attached it.

On the Classic card below, I cut out the roadster and also an extra left side (facing the viewer) and layered it on the base image for a little extra dimension. The background scene was stamped, masked, sponged and then colored w/ markers. The white frame used a lg oval Spellbinders die and a dot border embossing folder which I used a stylus to hand emboss around the frame.  Both cards measure 5.5 x 4.25. The Travel and Classic cards w/ full instructions are also on the SNS website.

I have two cards to share today. It didn’t start out to be two but it evolved that way and parts of one are used on the other. This one started as a watercolor background on lightweight watercolor paper. After it dried, I die cut the image out of the background then used a slightly larger die to make the background opening larger. On the 5×5 ivory card front, I stamped the Vintage Border across the bottom, added a little color to the centers and used the Vintage Border Die across the bottom half only to cut the card edge. I made a few more of the borders on another piece of c/s, die cut them and added them under the frame and around the top of the sentiment tag.

A lot of times, when I have an image like this fabulous Porch image (designed by Dina Kowal) all inked up, I’ll stamp it more than once. Just in case something happens to the first or I want to layer for depth or to have one for later. This was the extra one and while it was sitting there, I thought I’d add a little color.  Then the narrow frame piece from the first card was added to see how it looked. For the die cut Vintage Border peeking out around from around the frame, I double stamped it; once w/ the Kpad and again w/ the black ink.  I scored a border on the front of the 5×5 ivory card.

From here hop on over to Connie McCotter’s blog,  I know she’ll have something fabulous to share!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
