CARD DETAILS – USING KIT ONLY

I started making this card by stamping images in Copic marker friendly ink onto white paper. These images are very small and there’s not much room for coloring or blending. To me – these are the best types of images. There’s just something about these tiny prints that makes me want to use them over and over again. Hero Arts last year October or November kit had similar style images, those were for the Santa’s village and I just loved them! They are so perfect for making little cards with scenes.

Next, I used my Copic markers and colored. I used my go-to Copic marker colors and went with red, green, blue and a hint of gray color combo. There are coordinating dies for these images in July kit so you’ll be able to cut all of these out in your die cutting machine. I only had the stamps to play with this month so I actually cut these out using my Tonic Studios scissors.

Next, I white heat embossed sentiments onto red cardstock panel and foam mounted images in place. I love how my friend May Park always adds a ton of gorgeous detail to her clean and simple cards using a white or a black pen and I wanted to add some to my card as well.

I also used Hero’s Lacquer pen and coated some of the images to make them dimensional.

CARD DETAILS  -USING KIT & ADD-ONS

I also made a similar card, a Birthday card, but this time I incorporated a few add ons from this month. I used Country Fair bold prints background and stamped it in Versamark ink for a tone on tone look for the background of my card.

I also white heat embossed a few images from the Ornate Carousel stamp set to create a base and top for my scene and I also used a sentiment from this stamp set to have my card say “Have a Magical Birthday”.
