Make it Take its and my Cuttlebug

I'm working on a Make it Take it evening at the Stamping Studio. It has been a real challenge for me to make cards that are simple and quick. Trying to learn less is more. So today I got out the Cuttlebug and tried out a few of my folders. I used the Pumpkin Vine 3 different ways. This first one used a rust ink pad ink to paper. Added a piece of my backgrounds, ribbon from the Target Dollar bins and stamped the Inkadinkado image on Vellum. Attached it to a layer of copper with V2 Vellum adhesive. That stuff is awesome!

This one I used a gold pad ink to paper, stamped the 2 Inkadinkado images on acetate and attached it to the card with the V2 Vellum adhesive.

This last one is chalked. Added some punched leaves and a pumpkin I stamped and cut out. Painted it with Shimmerz for a little sparkle.

This one uses the Flower Vine. Used a gold pad ink to paper. Water colored the Inkadinkado birds and added a little sparkle with a clear Atyou Spica glitter pen. The Little butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. I painted it with Shimmerz and an orange marker. I like this one the best.

Now for my kind of card. Stamped my sunflower on Chocolate Chip, Embossed with gold and bleached out. Then water colored with markers. Added some Shimmerz to the flower. Background is my favorite technique to do. That webbing just makes the colors pop. Webbing is a must have supply. It makes a great background everytime!
