Lion Punch Art Card

Hello Friends!  Today's creation is a Lion Punch Art Card.  It's been a long time since I've done some punch art and decided to try my hand at it again.  I was using the Blossom punch the other day with a different project and thought it would be very cute used as a lions mane. So here is my finished project.

CS - Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Basic Black
Inks - Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Real Red, Old Olive
Marker - Chocolate Chip

Forever & Always Card

Front of Card
Hello Friends!  Today's project is a wedding card that I did for another challenge.  This is called Forever & Always!

Stampin' Up Supplies:
Stamps - Papaya Collage, Forever with You, Loving Thoughts, Petite Pairs
CS - Pool Party, Midnight Muse
DSP - Comfort Cafe
Inks - Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green
Markers - Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green
Emboss Folder - Square Lattice
Punch - Curly Label
Crochet Trim - Victoria
Ink Refill - Raspberry Ripple
Jewels - Basic Rhinestones
Misc - Blender Pen, Dimensionals

I wanted to use the Crochet Trim but wanted it a different color to match my card.  So I used an empty button/brad container and added some warm water and a couple of drops of the Ink Refill, Raspberry Ripple.  I stirred to make sure it was dissolved and then added the Crochet Trim.  I let it sit for a few minutes and then removed and dried on paper towels.  Once I was happy with the color I then took a hot iron to it to set in the color and to dry it so I could add it to the project.  You can adjust the color and intensity by using less drops or more drops, and by how long you allow the trim to soak.  The longer you let it soak the more intense the color will be.  You can adjust as you need for your project.

Hope you Enjoy!
