Time to Make an Easel Card


Today I made an easel card.  It is a little out of my comfort zone, but mostly because I haven't made that many.   I think it turned out alright and that is the challenge today at Paper Crafting Journey, Make an Easel Card.  And we have Rick St. Dennis as our sponsor.  How fantastic is that?

CAS at The Crafter's Cafe


It's time for another challenge at The Crafter's Cafe.  The challenge this week is to make a CAS card.   I find that so hard to do.  I love lots of die cuts and embellishments too much.  But, I think I did pretty good this time.  I have used a cute image called Holding a Flower from our sponsor A Day For Daisies.


Card Recipe:
I printed my image out and colored her with Copic markers.  My sentiment is a stamp from Stamping Up's So Happy for You set.  And then I used three rhinestones from my stash in the bottom left corner.  The final thing was Wink of Stella Clear Glitter on her wings.  That's it. Very simple in supplies, but the image just pops in color.

Copic Sketch Markers Used:
E000, E00, E01, E50, E51, E53, R20, V000, V01, V04, W1, W3, YG23, YG25
