Hello! Today I have two simple cards to share with you. I used same stamps but colored them bit differently. I love how they turned out. I'm sure I make similar cards in future too. There is no hard thinking what paper and embellishments use. Just card base, stamps, ink and some markers, and it's done :o) Quick and easy. I like that all those frames and embossing gives the impression that it is put together from several layers but it's all on one layer actually.
This stamp was waiting for inking so long.I'm glad I finally did it :o) It is Joanna Sheen Giordano Season Greetings. Images and borders are colored with ProMarkers. Sentiments on them could be a bit better placement but I pre-printed them to the card before stamping and coloring. I did my own embossing folder and embossed the frame to the front. I also used Stanger Pearl Paste to make some snow flakes. I added some sparkle to the card too, although it is not captured on the photo. I added Gelly Roll Clear Star to drawn border lines and snow hills.
Inside of the cards are very simple. I stamped some small images from same stamp set and colored them with ProMarkers.
'Cause the card was so simple, I had time to write down the colors I used ;) See the list below.
I have one small tip to share too: Add light brown colors to your bright markers to make the colors look vintage.
