I love working with new sentiment sets because it leaves so much room for creating! Today is the release of a set called Thomas Kinkade Expressions. They work well with many of the different Kinkade stamps but obviously sentiments can go with many different stamps or ideas.
Today I am sharing two cards I made with the new set. I also used a new-to-me stamp from CHF, #28 Mushroom Lane. These mushroom houses are adorable and so fun to color. I used my trusty Copic markers on this sample.
Ths second one was en experiment with copper. I purchased a roll of copper ages ago from Ellen Hutson's store. I used my new Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die to cut the copper, worked like a charm! Then I embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder. Embossing made it more rigid, which was a great side effect. I curled the petals on the flower with a pencil and created a matching brad with my i-Top brad maker (cool tool!) for the center. The dimension on this card would make it a bit tricky to mail without some damage.
It is Friday...yeah! We will be away part of the weekend so hubby can officiate a wedding for a former youth group kid. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
