Copic Creations Challenge #36

This is my first time entering the Copic Creations Challenge, and this week’s challenge is to use the color orange. I love orange, and this card is one of my favorites!

This card came together pretty quickly, and the natural colored cardstock really looks nice with the orange patterned paper and flower image. I used silver rhinestone “pearls” for the center of the flower and that really adds a nice sparkle! Here is a closeup of the center:

I used my new EK Success Circle Scissor Pro to cut out the flower, and will definitely be using this tool often. It cut the circle quickly and cleanly, and is so much nicer than my old circle cutter.

The flower stamp is one I like to use a lot, and I think it looks great in orange!

Thanks for looking!

JustRite Friday Challenge #39

This week’s JustRite challenge is to make a Thanksgiving or Thank You card or project using JustRite stamps. The sponsor is Spellbinders! Here is my Thanksgiving card:

This was a simple card to put together, and it was a lot of fun to color. I used an image and sentiment from the Autumn Blessings stamp set, which is the first JustRite set I acquired back when I began cardmaking. It was used in the first cardmaking class I attended, and we received the set as part of take home package from the class.

Here is a closer pic of the coloring on the image:

I used my Copic Airbrush System to create the golden colored band around the image. I was trying for a slightly mottled look, which looks much better in person than in the pictures! I am quite happy with how this card turned out.

Thanks for looking!
