I love you

Hello Everyone!
I'm here with a very simple card, I would like to call it white on white, It does have some extra color but the simplicity of this card is absolutely fascinating. I just love it. No Die Cutting involved! Just Coloring with Copics Markers!
I have stamp the Images from Love you S'more from Lawn Fawn using Memento Ink Pad. I used Copic E23 Hazelnut for the Bear, around the edges I went darker using the same E23 Hazelnut.
I emboss the Heart using Versa-Mark & Red Embossing Powder and to give a little depth and dimension I add some glossy accent, the sentiment is also emboss as well.
I add some green shade using Tim Holtz Distress Marker Crushed Olive (Water-Color). I add some dimension to this card using Foam Tape on the back.
Thank You for spending some time with me, I hope to see you Next Time for another Card,
Have a Bless week!

I miss you

Good Day Friends!
Today's project is a card I have made, using Love You S'more, and Coordinating Dies Love You S'more, from Lawn Fawn, both are been in the market for quiet a bit but I haven't had the time to play with it, until now.
 I start by sponging the back ground paper doing circular motion using Sky, Twilight and Indian Corn Blue Inks from CTMH to blend them all. For the Mountains I also use a sponge, tear a paper piece to created a masking using Olive(Lighter Color) and New England Ivy(Darkest Color) to add some depth.
 To created the starry background I used my emboss buddy from We R Memories, stamped the stars, also from  Love You S'more, using Versa-Mark and add White Embossing Powder. The sentiment I Miss You is from SSS Whats Up.
I have color the images using Copics
R08 Vermilion(Flame)
Y15 Candimium Yellow(Flame and Moon)
Y13 Candimium Yellow(Moon)
YR04 Chrome Orange(Flame)
E23 Hazelnut(Marshmallow)
0 Colorless Blender(Marshmallow)
I stamped the Pine Tress using New England Ivy using the Two Step Technique
(you will stamp the image up to 3 time without Re-Inking the stamp)
I guess my technique is a three way :)
I hope you have enjoy my post, I did try to keep short and simple! Thank You for spending some time with me, and I hope I will see you Next Time,
Have a fabulous week!
Hugs

So happy for you + embossing paste technique

Hello and Welcome to my Blog!
I'm happy and excited to share a card + a technique using the Dreamwaever Embossing Paste.
This Technique is very simple but fun, to see the results at the end!
I have made this card using the stencil from DCWV 6 by 6 Stencil Pattern, taped on to my card, to prevent the stencil to move around. I have applied a light coat of Dreamweaver Embossing Paste over the stencil. I also have add a Clear Detail Embossing Powder over the paste and let it dry for about 30 minutes before I heat set it.
Tip:
(if you don't let air dry first the embossing paste will bubble)
I stamp the Flower Image using Let Me Grow Stamp set from CTMH using Versa-Mark and Olive Embossing Powder and colored the image using Copic Marker YG03 Yellow Green  
For the Sentiment I used Jillibean Soup Handwritting Sentiment JB0198 So happy for you on Vellum and White Embossing Powder.
I have cut the leaves using Sizztlits 3 Dies Flowers Branches and Leaves Set with my Big-Shot Die Cutting Machine. I have add more sparkle to the leaves using Wink of Stella Clear Brush Glitter over. To finish this card I add a Beige Flat Pearl to the center of the flower!
I am very pleased the way this card turn out, it does have dimension, but it not to overwhelm. I sure think this card can be mail easily but as always I do add some extra protection to it. 
I'm sorry this post is kinda long but I want to include all the supplies I have use and I have provide a link to most all in case you will want to try!
As Always Thank You for stopping by and spend sometime with me!
Have a Great Week!
Hugs
