I made this card because something wonderful outside the door inspired me.
Something called Nature.

For this project I used:
White cardstock
Rubber Brayer
Paintbox - ColorBox ink which has a whole rainbow of colors
Circle punch 2" for the sun
Tim Holtz stamp Nature's Moment
There is a video on you tube that can help you: Stampin with Tami Brayer Sunset.

For this other card I used a reflection technique.
The video that I followed is: TimeforCrafting.

I hope you enjoy my cards!
See you soon for another project.

  2. This card is WONDERFUL!!! It's been a while since I have used this technique and now you have me all interested again after seeing your beautiful card. About the copics....I started buying them as singles in green, a blue and colors for faces. i was then "hooked" but still have so much to learn. I discovered I could buy one for $4.12 (tax included) at Hobby Lobby....so I would take my two friends with me and we would each buy one with a 40% coupon and go through the lines twice....haha It has taken me 6 months to get what I have and some you can NOT get at Hobby Lobby. If you can get a set of 72 with each not being over $4.50 and free shipping, that would be your best deal. If you can't and have a Hobby Lobby near by....go that route, but if you don't have a HL near, then check the best prices and see what is the best deal. I was scared to buy 72 at one time not knowing if I would truly love them.

  3. Beautiful cards. Thank you for following me and I am a new follower of your too! I LOVE Italy! About ten years ago I traveled to Italy with girlfriends and loved it! My husband has been to Italy twice with the Mummers. It went to San Remo and Agrigento, Italy. Our dream is to come back and live in Italy for a while not just a vacation.
