Heartfelt Thanks with Erica


Hello, Erica back on the blog today. I've swapped a day with poor Rachel who has done her back in but she's going to cover one of my dates while I'm moving house at the end of the month and beginning of next. A Thank You card seemed appropriate for today's post with that in mind.



I stamped up the lovely bloom from Just A Rose and coloured it in with my Copic markers. I wanted a light and bright look so I used a flicking motion and left plenty of white space on the petals. The leaves I did in a similar manner but the stamens in the middle got a dark pink colour.

I fussy cut the flower out and added foam tape to the back of it while I was in a cutting frenzy. Once that was done I set it aside and started on the background.

Grabbing my new Distress Oxide inks I blended some green shades all over a card panel. My first idea was to stamp up some leaves on it and make it look like a rose bush on which the flower would sit. I decided on trying something new instead and got a flower background stamp out, placed it on my table and spritzed water all over it before turning the panel upside down and upside-down stamping it on. To hurry up the drying process, I got my heat gun out and used it on the panel until it was completely dry.

Using a scalloped edge die I cut one of the corners off, both to make a space for the sentiment as well as let the card base show through a little. I picked a lovely linen textured pink card stock, in a similar colour to match the one on the flower and it seemed a shame to not show it off.

The sentiment 'Heartfelt Thanks' I stamped in black ink on white card stock and cut it out leaving a thin white border around it. I added it to the card using foam tape.



That's it for today, lets all send our well-wishes to Rachel for a speedy recovery and see you all soon again!

Happy crafting from Erica

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
