Masquerade Ephemera cards!

Hello everyone!  I have several cards ready to post that I am going to get ready soon, but first a design team post I hope you will like. 

I would love to share with you some cards I made with the *new* Masquerade Ephemera Pack and 6x6 Patterned paper pack.  I actually made these a while back, literally as soon as I opened my design team package, and within an hour.  I had not really ever used Ephemera before, but I kindof fell in love it it for quick cards!  Everything goes together perfectly.  

I did use a die and a stamp, just for finishing touches, but there are simply so many combinations to play with with the Ephemera and patterned paper.  It was so fun to make these no-stress cards!

The background for this next cards is stamped in Versamark with perfect pearls over top.  An oldie but goodie technique!

You can find these at the Blank Page Muse store.

Have a Purr-fect Day!

 Hello everyone! I was feeling chilly the day I made this card.  

I first made a background with Distress Oxide inks, water and an embossing folder. I inked up my white cardstock with a brown and green inks.  I then spritzed the embossing folder with some water and closed it over the inked paper so the water would transfer to the paper. You don’t run it through your machine, just open it back up and let the water evaporate so you get the pattern on the paper.  It is a subtle pattern, but very pretty.  The same sweater embossing folder is the background of the card. You can find this old technique  explained in photos here

I stamped over the background with my quilt stamp and cut it out.  

Then, I stamped my cat on kraft cardstock.  I applied nail polish to parts of it with a metal tool.  I did two layers because the first layer sinks in a little.  I then fussy cut the cat out.  

I really like how this turned out!

Nesting Birds Card

 It’s almost time for nesting season! As an avid birder, I am so excited about this. As soon as the days began getting longer, the birds have started singing their spring songs.  

Anyhow, here is a card to celebrate nesting season using a stamp from I Brake for Stamps.  I stamped in brown dye ink over a glossy cardstock that I brayered with a Kaleidacolor inkpad.  This background went so well with the Cyan Consortium paper pack.  However, I wanted to bring in more brown, so I sponged Tea Dye distress ink around all of the pieces.
