Fall Photo #1

     Photo paper LOVES ink!!!   I discovered quite some time ago that all of that photo paper I have left from purchasing ink in packages with free photo paper, is great for card making. 
     To start this card I cut a piece of white card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. I inked one side of an Darice embossing folder with Dark Chocolate ink. I centered the card stock in the folder and ran it through the Big Shot. 

       The stamp set I used was Gina K's "Painted Autumn". I trimmed a sheet of photo paper to 3 x 4 1/4 inches. "Give Thanks" is stamped with Dark Chocolate ink. The flowers and leaves are 3-way stamps. The flower in the upper right corner is stamped Wild Honey/Peach Bellini/Tomato Soup. The bottom right corner is Wild Honey/Mustard Seed/Spiced Marmalade. The leaves are stamped Wild Honey/Jelly Bean Green/Forest Moss. 
     The flowers are pop-dotted and I added 3 wood dots for embellishment. All of this is centered on a Dark Chocolate card base.

Black-Eyed Susan

     I received an announcement for a 50th wedding anniversary today. I made this card to send. I used Melanie Muenchinger's "Stately Flowers 9" and Gina K's "Sending Love" stamp sets to make this card. I used Copic markers to color the black-eyed Susans. The butterfly and sentiment are heat embossed in gold.
