Saturday Thanks!

Good Saturday Morning Peeps! It's the weekend, whatcha doing fun? Tonight I am heading to my favorite demo's house for some stamping fun along with some good eats and good friends! Should be a great evening!

Today's card is made with Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I am working again with the copic markers, I really like them but it is a bit challenging, still alot I need to learn and alot of colors I need. I did get some greys, so I could color my bucket grey instead of the blue I used the last time.

I love kraft cardstock and I really don't use it all that much. I like how it pairs with other colors. I used it here with some real red DS paper, to match my apples. The sentiment on here is from the SU set "Short and Sweet", I think. The stamp reads "Thanks for making me smile", but i masked off the bottom and just stamped the "Thanks". I used the new edge punch at the bottom of the image panel. I added a brad at each corner. The photo corner and the pierced strip on the side is all of the decoration for this card. It will be a great one for mailing, not alot of bulk besides the brads, unusual for me, my cards are generally way to heavy!

This next card was also made with some kraft cardstock.

I used some scraps I had of the retired "haiku" DS paper. The tree from "Season of Friendship" was stamped with chocolate chip craft ink and after it dried a bit cut out with my circle nestie. I also cut a scallop nestie to back it with tangerine cardstock. I stamped the leaves with kiwi and then punched out a few flowers with the three for you flower punch, added a small sticky pearl to the center and added them to the tree with some pop-dots. The sentiment is from "Birthday Whimsy" and is punched out with the word window punch. I added another pearl to it and mounted it with dimensionals. The tangerine ribbon goes all the way around the card and tied in a "knot" at the front. The circle tree panel is then mounted to the card with some more dimensionals.

Well, that is it for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!
