Black and White

The dotted swiss portion is punched first and then
dry embossed in an embossing folder.

The phrase has been created in PSP X and
die cut with a Spellbinders Label.
It is over another label that has
been textured in an embossing folder.
Note that all of the white portions
of the card have been either brayered
of sponged with black ink.

The black flourishes are from a Bosscut die.
The flowers are from Punch Bunch punches.
The yellow sunburst centers have a dot
of black glitter glue in the center.

Psalm 143:8

Circles and circles and circles.
I do not usually design with circles.
Ovals, rectangles and squares, but seldom
circles.  The scripture was created in PSP X
and was made specifically for a circle die cut.

Construction details - 
A plain white card base that has been 
given a vintage distressed look by inking
around all four edges with Rangers Distressed Ink, 
the color used is Linen.

White card stock piece that is about 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches
has been embossed in a Cuttlebug folder,
then lightly sponged with the Linen Distressed Ink.
It was attached to a pale pink card stock,
which was trimmed with layering rulers, 
then the edges sponged with Linen Distressed Ink.
This was then centered and attached to
the card base.

The circles were die cut with Spellbinders dies.
The edges of the the phrase circle were 
carefully glittered with a glitter pen.
The DP circles were inked with Linen ink.

The green flourish is a Bosscut die and the 
dogwood blossom is a punch.
The flower has been lightly colored on the
edges with a pale pink H2O paint.

Birthday Cards

 The happy birthday is a Sizzix die cut.
All colored paper are from DCWV stacks.
The phrase has been cut from glitter paper.
Border punches are EK Success.
 I have had fun doing the variations
of the basic designs.
The flowers that have been punched from
the patterned DP are a new venture for me.
I think I really like it for certain designs.

Musically Made No. 2

 Begin with a white card base.
I used a Sizzix embossing folder to create
the musical score for the card front.
After embossing a brayer and black ink
was used to accent the music.
Use a very light hand to ink just the raised portion.
After the attaching the music the corners were rounded.
The phrase is from God's Holy Word.  Psalm 104:33
It was cut with a Spellbinders Label die, 
mounted on black card stock which was trimmed
to a narrow border using layering rulers.
The corners were rounded.
The music notes are from a Quickutz die
and a musical score border punch by EK.
