Theresa Momber's
Peace & Joy
This was the first card I created with Theresa's set.
I used Kraft & Dark Choc. Pure Luxury Card Stock.
PP from The Simple Things patterned paper pack.
Stamped & fussy cute out the bird after coloring with 
Spectrum Noir Markers & Pencils. For the background
I used the sentiments and a holly image and stamped in 
Dk. Choc. ink and then I would stamp it again so some
would be lighter. Sentiment is stamped in Dk. Choc. Ink.
 I also used DK. Choc. Twine. Added bling & a Snow flake.
*******
Next I used Faded Brick, White, Black Onyx, &
Kraft Pure Luxury Card Stock. I wanted a wood looking
 background. I used Kraft Paper and scored the lines then 
used Inks in Faded Brick, Dk. Choc., & White. I 
dry embossed a piece of velum & added the Black & White Twine 
from Gina K Designs. Using the dies to create a 
circle in Black Onyx & inverted scallop in Kraft
I stamped the Pinecone image and colored with Spectrum Noir
Markers, added some snow & bling.

Beautiful set of cards! The fussy cutting on the cardinal is worth the time you took to make the bird stand out on the card. Love both cards.

Jean Bullock said...

Seriously, WOW. I love the nature feel to both of these cards. Great layouts and layering. Awesome stamping and coloring. I have got some pinning to do.

Sharon Fontenot said...

Very creative making your own background. Love the mix of media. Wonderful card. Oh, btw, I can tell you do the inside of your cards as well. This does not get by me. Every time I give a card, the recipient opens it to see what is inside. Kind of an odd feeling for me (the cardmaker) when there isn't anything.

Debbie Bauder said...

Such interesting cards. You really made good use of the entire card and did a great job of fussy cutting the image.

Cheryl Depler said...

Very eye catching! Lots going on there. Good job!

Beautiful cards! Especially like the first with the red and the cardinal.

Your cards are fantastic. I love the rustic feel of them. The browns really give it a homey feel. TFS

These are really quite beautiful - I LOVE how the bright red cardinal POPS in front of that kraft background, I have to use kraft cardstock more... thanks for the inspiration!
