The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: Rich and Warm CardsFinished Dimensions: 4-1/4" wide x 5-1/2" long
- The Power of Texture! The Trees image from Lovely As a Tree was inked with Early Espresso and stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock. It is a lovely image indeed. But in a matter of seconds, with just a few cranks of the Big Shot handle and the Square Lattice Textured Impression Embossing Folder, lovely becomes warm and rich. This is the power of texture!
- The Poetry of Pearls! Custom tinted Basic Pearls draws the eye straight to the unique ribbon treatment. The Cherry Cobbler color was achieved with red and brown permanent markers.
- Mad for Plaid! A tartan pattern from Frostwood Lodge anchors the image mat. Doesn't plaid just exude warmth? It reminds me of my undergraduate days at Monmouth (IL) College...Home of the Fighting Scots! And yes, we had pipers with kilts! I know there are those who will disagree...but to me, there is nothing more hauntingly beautiful than bagpipe music!
- Fabulous Frames! Want to draw attention to your image? What better way than to frame it! The Skaters from Winter Post were inked with Cherry Cobbler and stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock. After a few spritzes with the Color Spritzer Tool and the addition of Dazzling Details, this portrait of wintery fun was framed in an Early Espresso frame made with the Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
So what do you think of today's card? Won't you please leave me a comment and let me know? In hindsight, I would have heat embossed the Skaters with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Emboss Powder...but hindsight is 20-20 as they say! And never forget...if you ever have any questions about the cards that I create or the techniques that I use, I am only an email away...
End Notes: Crystal Effects and Classic Reinkers should work for custom coloring pearls...since the Crystal Effects works as a binding agent. The next time I custom color pearls, I will try it out.
