Hi all!
I have been trying to keep busy lately with my card making.  I thought I would show you a couple of my latest cards... The first one was stamped with a very large butterfly image and heat embossed with ultra fine black embossing powder.  I colored it with only 2 Copic markers.  I placed the card front on my Cuttlebug plate and taped each die cut so they would not move.  I cut the entire thing in one passing.  After that, I used pop dots, graduating each layer so that I ended with 5 layers of pop dots on the center piece.  I love the effect of this technique.
The second card was made for my sister's birthday.  I used a digital image and colored it with colored pencils.  I die cut the image and also cut a piece of black card stock with the same die.  I cut the black one in half and made a partial frame with it.  I wanted it to give some contrast against the pink, embossed piece of card stock.  I layered them on a white card base.
I hope you enjoy seeing what else I do (when I am not doing design team work!  ;-)

Until next time...
