Joan card 1

Ok so I have been asked to be the guest designer today.  ( Oh what have I gotten myself into?)  LOL  I am not computer savy-in the least!  But I can stamp a mean card-so hear goes...  This first card is done with The Cup of Love stamp set and Thinking of you.  Willoughby background paper, white caboodles paper and dcwc neutrals paper.  I also used the crop a dile big bite, polo shimmer brads, Memento tuxedo black ink and of course copic markers from set F.  The flad border was made by taking 3/4 " squares and cutting them in half.  Instead of round-like the sketch- I decided to go with square for this card.  I also cut off the handle and part of the cup to make it fit in the size given.

For this last card I used a lot of things: Stamps: Great Greetings, Lucy and sketched scrolls.  Cardstock: Caboodles white and DCWC Jewel.  Memento Tuxedo black ink and Versamagic cloud white.  Copic markers set D and set A.  Souffle gelly white pen, white mini brads, Nestabilities Calssic Scallop Cirles lrg and Impressabilities Flowers.  1" cirlce punch and white ribbon.

So there you go-I hope you were able to get a new idea.  Be VERY surprised if I EVER do ANYTHING like this again!  HAHAHA  Interesting-very interesting.  Blessings, Joan Osterhouse
