Leather, Lace and Lots of owls

I have a few cards to show you today. Scroll down for the Tuesday Trigger and Embellish Magazine's Owl Challenge cards.

First is a card I made for the GinaK Designs Release party. I call it my Leather & Lace Christmas. The new tan leather cardstock is just so yummy. I love it. It has this unique texture that makes vintage backgrounds easy to accomplish. For my card, I just smeared my Creamy Caramel ink on the paper. It was fun to be messy :-). I then stamped the music score from my new Vintage Borders set with black ink. The flower and leaf are from A Year of Flowers.

Here is a close up of the leather cardstock. The left side is the paper left untreated. Look how dramatic the change is just by smearing ink on it.
This second card is for Embellish Magazines Owl Color Challenge. I am also entering this to Hero Arts' Simply Holiday Challenge. I used Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery and Memento Rich Cocoa inks. The stamps are from Hero Arts' Jolly Christmas set.

Finally, a card for Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger Challenge. Here is the trigger:

And my card:

The papers are by K&Co and the colors are perfect for this challenge. The owl is by Unity's June KOTM. I stamped it and added the color with Copic markers. The scallop border is from my Vintage Borders set. The card base is also a new GinaK offering, Smoky Slate, which is a perfect match to the patterned papers.

  5. Awesome cards, Nina... all three! I especially love the lace ruffle and DP in the top card, and the DP and the way you used Vintage Borders in the bottom card. Bravo!

    BTW, I just realized you were born in the Phillipines. We were stationed at Clark AFB when I was 4-5 years old. My youngest sister was born there. Even though I was so young, I still have a few vivid memories... flashes of memories, actually.

    Also, I just noticed you draw for Squigglefly, so I hopped over there to look and ended up with five downloads of your work... three scriptures, some birds and some flowers. You're blowing me away!!!

    Hugs,
    Lisa
