April 3, 2016
My kiddos’ school was having a basket auction fund raiser. I donated a handmade card set, because what else would I donate? I had also just gotten a heat gun and embossing powder and was having way to much fun learning how to use it.
I water colored each background with Distress Inks. I wanted the cards to each be different, so I cut each water color piece in a slightly different way. After the backgrounds were completely dry and cut, I gold embossed some stars. I also used a variety of sentiments to give each card a unique feel.
The set all together
The first card
The second card
The third card: I tried using a water color pencil on this card. I was not in love with the results and did not use the pencil on any other card.
The forth card
The fifth card
The sixth card
The seventh card
The eighth card
The ninth card
The tenth card
Size: all A2 size cards
Extra Details: I used die cuts, embossing folders and velum to add interest to the cards. I used a Darice embossing folder with stars on it.
Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Starry Backdrops, Lucky Stars and a free Thanks stamp from my Lawn Fawn orders
Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Thanks, Small Stitch Rectangles, Stitched Borders
Inks: Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, and Salty Ocean.
Hope you enjoyed the cards
