Take Flight with Polished Stone...

Good morning!

Before I share my cards with you today, I want to let you know that I am now selling my cards over at Etsy. If you are interested in purchasing a card you have seen recently on my blog, let me know and I will list it for sale over there. Thanks!

I have some more scrap polished stone cards to share with you this morning. It was so fun over the weekend, pairing these demonstration samples with some patterned paper scraps and making them into cards.

The first card today was a really hard one to get a good photograph of - the colors are Perfect Plum & Chocolate Chip (from SU) along with GinaK's Chocolate Kiss for the cardstock base. The photograph below shows the colors okay but washed out the sentiment...

Once again I used Ranger's Alcohol Inks & blending tool for the polished stone - but since it's been so long since I made this I don't remember which ones I used, sorry! After it was dried, I stamped the butterfly from Take Flight in versamark ink and embossed it with Black Tinsel embossing powder. It has a really beautiful glitter to it that you can see better in the first photograph.

While I was making these cards this past weekend, I decided to make them all thinking/praying for you cards so I used Gina's Punchy Words for the front sentiments and her Not Forgotten sentiments for the inside. It's always good to have these kind of cards on hand, don't you think?

Next up is a brighter polished stone card... this time with reds...

You can see a little better on this card that after I did the polished stone on glossy paper and embossed the butterfly with the tinsel embossing powder, I dabbed the edges of the paper in versamark and embossed each side with the black embossing powder too. I think it's a fun way to add a border, without having to use paper!

The black cardstock is GinaK's Black Onyx and the patterned papers are a from a couple different paper packs from SU - Saffron & Riding Hood red are the basic colors.

I have one final grouping of Polished Stone butterfly cards to share with you tomorrow here on my blog. I hope you'll be back then to check them out!
