    For my first card, I combined the new Vintage Labels dies & Carried to Heaven with the Flourish Label Borders, Vintage Flourish Pattern dies, Ornamental Cross Collection dies & Chalkboard Vine Background from last month’s release. I also added the Cala Lily from the Loving Memories set. After I die cut the Vintage Labels and the Vintage Flourish Pattern dies out of white, I left the dies in place on the labels and stamped the Chalkboard Vine pattern on top using the sky blue ink. I added the Flourish Label Border on the largest die using the black ink.

    Blue Sympathy 03497
    The lilies were colored with Copics and fussy cut. I added a bit of blue to the smallest cross and stacked the crosses on top of the lilies. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

    Sheltering Angel 03488
    For my second card, I used the Sheltering Angel, the Chalkboard Vine Background, the Vintage Label Dies, the largest of the Vintage Flourish Pattern die and the Angel Wings dies. I liked the lt blue ink on white on my first card, so I made a large background again using the Chalkboard Vine Bg and the sky blue ink. I thought it needed a little something, so I pierced all around the border. The Sheltering Angel blessing was stamped, die cut and with the die still in place,  I used colors from the two Kaleidacolor pads to sponge the color on top. For the yellow label and the largest background, I stamped the Chalkboard Vine bg again using the straw ink (stamped one off) and sponged on a little more of the same ink to deepen the color. The Angel Wings were die cut out of yellow and I used the yellow & orange inks from the melon Kpad to add a little more color.

    Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT475) is all about Ovals. Since ovals are one of my favorite shapes to use, this is my kind of challenge! 

    This card is actually not hard at all…I started by running a glue stick all over a piece of plain card stock then smoothing a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil down (I used the duller side up) on top of it. I cut one piece slightly smaller than my 4.25 x 5.50 card front, put it inside the fleur de lis embossing folder, then I put the lg oval frame of the Diffuser set on top and embossed. This left the oval center unembossed. I just happened to have a narrow black die cut oval frame that fit so I attached it around the oval. The 3 crosses were die cut out of trimmed off foil covered card stock I had left. I also embossed only the same crosses on black card stock, fussy cut them & attached under the silver versions.

    On the embossed background, I used a black Copic marker to add the antiquing along the inside edges of each diamond shape & wiped it a bit w/ a paper towel as I went.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
