Let me side-track you for a moment to showcase my projects. I created a set of two masked ‘Thanks’ note cards – one in warm colors with gold mirror cardstock accent and one in cool colors with silver mirror cardstock accent – using the FABulous Art Textures and Sayings and Sentiments stamp sets along with a variety of distress oxide inks. Oh my gosh… a good inky time was had by all!


These were super easy CAS cards. I cut a piece of white cardstock in quarters and used two of them (one for each card). I tore two pieces of masking paper about two inches longer than the cardstock quarter and masked part of the left side and most of the right side of the cardstock piece, anchoring it down to my craft sheet with the extra inch of masking paper on the top and bottom. This left a vertical ‘channel’ of cardstock which I inked with three colors of distress inks, overlapping and blending as I went. I then randomly stamped all the images in the Art Textures stamp set in black ink, covering the inked cardstock ‘channel’. When I was happy with the result, I carefully removed the masking paper and trimmed the inked/stamped portion, leaving a narrow margin of white on both sides. I adhered that to the mirror cardstock and trimmed it again, leaving a narrow margin of mirror cardstock on both sides. I adhered the trimmed piece to the card base and then stamped the sentiment from the Sayings and Sentiments stamp set in the lower right corner with the black ink.


For the inside, I adhered a strip of the mirror cardstock down the left side of a white panel and then layered the panel on colored cardstock. I left the inside blank to write a custom message. I finished the front with several dots of Crystal Drops.


Here are pics of the other card in cool colors, created the same way.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. I love your cards! The Art Textures Stamp Set is one of my favorites. I just picked up the Big Textures Stamp Set, which I think is also a must have. ;) I really love how you paired your stamped panels with foil paper. Thanks for the inspiration!
