Thinking of you!

Hi all! Just a quick card this Sunday! It's been a kind of lazy weekend at the Koerber house and we've been doing a bunch of family stuff, so -- just a quick trip to the stamp room!

I made this card with the Chairs To You! set by Flourishes to show you just how easy it is to use the elements in this set to create a really neat, simple card! If you click on the link, you'll see this vase of ivy, a book, a cute 'lil dog-- fun stuff to make easy cards with!

I stamped my potted ivy in black using the Palette Noir ink. Have you tried this ink? It creates a very fine line image and works BEAUTIFULLY with Copic markers. No smudging, no smearing - just a beautiful image to color! I had been struggling to find that ink pad that worked really well with Copic markers. I have found it!

After stamping my image, I used cool grey 3 for the base, warm grey 3 for the urn style vase and willow green and yellowish green for the leaves. I also outlined and then blended a light blue around the right edge of my vase to give it some definition.

Mat it up, add some sheer ribbon, gold self stick pearls, pick some coordinating dp and add a saying and... you're done! This is truly a 10 minute card! Great to have on hand -- just in case!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend! Until next time-- take care!
