being thoughtful...

Hello from windy and rainy Western Washington!!  Our typical autumn weather has arrived with a vengeance!!   So... what do you do when the weather turns bad??? Why make a card or two, of course, lol!!  I got one card made and have a second one underway!  This card is for the current Where Creativity Meet C9 challenge to use the C9 colors (found in their company banner), the current Stamp Ink Paper challenge (tic-tac-toe - I went with leaves, sequins and die cut) and the current Dies R Us challenge of leaves.  I hunted through my ink collection and found three Hero Arts inks that were a good match for the C9 colors and then used them to ink up the leaf border image from the C9 Seasonal Borders stamp set.  The sentiment is from the C9 set Being Classy stamp set.  I inked up the word thoughtful using the same three inks and then die cut it with the matching die.  I laid the word on my stamped panel and then arranged the words being and is classy around it.  I removed the die cut and using my MISTI stamped the words in black ink.  The die cut was adhered along with some sequins in clear and a color similar to those used for ink up the stamps.




Hope you have a wonderful day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Fresh Snow linen, SU! dark gray; Stamps and dies:  Concord & 9th; Inks:  Hero Arts; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh and Verve
