Thanks, You Warm My Heart


Today's card was created for the 2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I have a dear friend who receives the monthly KOTM stamps from Unity Stamp Company and she always lets me borrow them. Thank goodness for crafty friends, right? As soon as I saw this image in the May 2017 Free Your Dreams kit I knew I had to ink her up and make a card for the hop. To create my card I started by layering a piece of pumpkin pie orange cardstock from Hobby Lobby onto my white card base. I then layered some patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Indie Chic 6x6 paper pad on top. I stamped the sentiment from the kit onto some more of the cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using some Ranger gold embossing powder. I cut the panel into a fishtail banner and set it aside. I then stamped the beautiful image onto some white cardstock and die cut it into a rectangle panel using a Gina Marie Designs stitched edge die. I stamped the image numerous times onto the patterned papers from the same 6x6 paper pad so I could paper piece the images onto the focal panel. Once everything was shaded and colored to my liking I went around all of the edges with my Memento dual tip onyx black marker and adhered them all to the focal image.  To finish my card I popped the focal panel and the sentiment banner up off of the card using 3M foam tape. I hope you like it!
