Yet another Thank you card with a Musical Theme

If you haven’t visited the Penny Black blog this week you really should. There are give-aways all week and beautiful cards by Jill Foster.

My next musical thank you card has a different colour scheme and orientation but the same stamps and technique (emboss resist) as the last. I revisited a layout I did a few weeks ago here. I stamped the rectangular panel with the music background stamp (I don’t know what I would do without this stamp!) in versamark and embossed in clear ep. I did not get complete coverage with the embossing which ended up working just fine as the effect is ‘collagy’ and ‘vintagy’. I then sponged with three colours and stamped the winter scroll over the sponging and across the card base also. I think this one might be my favourite of the five I made, probably because of the colour scheme.

By the way, we have snow now, I wonder if it is here to stay?


Stamps: Winter ScrollMusic Background,  Gratitude (Penny Black)
Inks:  Memento  Summer Sky, Grape Jelly, Nautical Blue and Versamark (Tsukineko)
Also:  Clear embossing powder

    Oh my, each time I think you won’t do a prettier card, and then you go ahead & do it again! I would be really hard pressed to select a favorite. I just love all 3 of them….the blues in this one – so stunningly gorgeous. Thanks for sharing 3 such equally lovely cards, same stamp, yet each one so very different. Hugs

  3. This is stunning! You sponge like no one else~ So gorgeous!

    I love that you use your stamps in so many ways. You really do think outside the box. Everyday I hope to see a new addition. I have learned so much from you big thanks for keeping all your “lovely” cards available to your fans. – Have a great day.

    Love all your musical cards – I play piano and my daughter is taking piano and vocal lessons, so we’re always on the hunt for cards and gifts for her teacher. And, we would certainly love to see you play along at CASology, Heather – it’s TIME! lol!

    I thought I could live without that scroll, and without the Grape Jelly, but alas I still try to act like the NEXT ink and stamp will make just one of my cards look like yours.Yours are always magic that have nothing to do with the stamps or ink. You are just the ultimate artist.

    Love the blue and white combo! I like how the winter scroll stamp gives the card just a subtle hint of the season.
    I don’t know about Ottawa, but I have a feeling our snow may be here to stay. 😦 Although, it’s supposed to be a mild weekend, so I can hope…

  16. Oh my goodness this is so lovely. Your blog is chock full of wonderful inspiration. xxx
