CPS and CHF together

Isn't it funny how quickly we use letters for appreviations!? CPS is Card Positioning Systems blog and CHF is Cornish Heritage Farms stamps. These two groups worked together this week to bring you some crafting goodness. I received the Ornamental Beauty and Ornamental Scrapblock to play with and as usual, I couldn't stop at just one card.
The scrapblock is about 6" square and it is full of great designs. I cut out a portion of that stamped design for the front of my card to fit with the CPS sketch. I used Copic Markers to color in the design.
This beautiful greeting piece is part of the set. I stamped it on white cardstock with black ink, embossed that and then colored it with Copic Markers. It is cut out and attached to the punched out scallop circle. These are added with foam tape for added dimension. Portions of this design were accented with the Diamond Glitter 3-D Fashion paint by Tulip but it is pretty hard to really see that in my photos. That adds just a touch of glitter and dimension.
On this card, I also used a portion of the whole stamp block. The flower is stamped with black ink and embossed and then colored with the Copic Markers to match the Pink Paisley patterned paper I used.
It was fun to have all of this dimension with the cut out flower that is added with foam tape.
The stamp block was again stamped, this time on watercolor paper with a white stamp pad and embossed with white embossing powder. It was real simple then to use my watercolor crayons and a watercolor brush to add the color to this piece.
The white dots that were added to the design are White Slick 3-D Fashion paint by Tulip. This is a fast and great way to add a neat accent and a little dimension. The glitter Thicker letters seemed like the perfect accent.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
