Sending Good Thoughts your way

Hi friends! Well, we busted through another week and it’s Saturday again! But that’s not a bad thing, is it?! I’m back up on the Prickley Pear Stamps blog today with another card featuring the oh-so-gorgeous Brighter Days Ahead stamp set which I absolutely love! Besides the amazing focal image, there are tons of sentiments. A couple days ago I shared a paper-pieced card created with it, so I colored the image on this one with alcohol markers. It’s difficult trying to achieve texture with markers but I think I did okay! ;)

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card from CutCardStock 110# Basis Natural cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner. I stamped the image in Memento Rich Cocoa ink on 80# Basis Natural and masked the lower right corner of the image. I traced the rounded corner of the card base onto the image, and colored it with alcohol markers. I stamped the sentiment and added several flat sequins which completed the card.

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. Wow, seems I’ve got lots to catch up on! Many apologies for not visiting recently, had lots of family stuff to sort out. I hope you are keeping well and your card is beautiful, loving those cactus and the sun, it reminds me of our trips to Arizona 😊. Hugs, Jo x
