WORDart Cards

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI started this card with a base of Curious Poison Ivory cardstock.  This cardstock has a really nice shimmer to it that is impossible to capture in a photo.  I stamped the tree trunk in Burnt Umber.  I first inked the leaf stamp with Momento New Sprout ink and then tapped the stamp with Bamboo Leaves randomly to give it some depth.  I inked the grass stamp with Bamboo Leaves and stamped twice.  I sponged Antique Linen distress ink over the entire card and more heavily on the edges.  For the WORDart, I printed it onto the same cardstock die cut with the Fillable Frames 11 die after changing the color to a dark brown.  I sponged it the same way as the card and stamped some leaves with Bamboo Leaves ink.  I wanted to add just a pop of color so I stamped the bird onto the tree using Lady Bug.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I wanted to try something different so I die cut the center of this card using a Spellbinders rectangle die.  I then ran the card front through the Cuttlebug with the Diamonds impression plate.  I die cut a piece of brown cardstock using the same die as the card front and adhered it through the front to ensure that it was perfectly centered.  I then die cut a piece of blue cardstock using a slightly smaller rectangle die and printed my WORDart onto it after changing the color to match the brown cardstock.  I adhered the blue cardstock with foam tape to add dimension.  I wanted to add something to the front while still keeping the card simple so I die cut some leaves from cork paper and stamped the leaf image onto them.  To add a little something-something, I traced the image with a Stardust glitter pen.  I adhered the leaves so they overlapped the frame but did not interfere with opening the card.
