Nana's Basket



Hi there and Happy Thursday to you all!  Today I am sharing two more cards using Nina's new set called Nana's Needlework from GKD.  For both of these cards I used the basket of yarn image.  For the first card, I simply stamped the image with Rich Cocoa Memento ink on a cream circle panel and on some patterned paper from Webster's Pages.  The balls of yarn were colored with Copic markers and hi-lighted with some Spica Glitter pens.  The knitting needles were colored with my Sakura Clear Glitter pen (not sure why it's called clear, when it looks silver.)  The base card was embossed with my Cuttlebug and Textile Texture EF.  The print cardstocks are all from Webster's Pages Home for the Holidays/Winter's Wings 6 x 6 pack.  For my next card, I inked up only the basket and then added some of the cute little flowers 

that are included in the set.  I stamped a few of the flowers on scrap, colored them with Copics and popped them up in and on the basket.  I added Glossy Accents and some crystal glitter to the popped up flowers.  The base card is PL Kraft  that was layered with some PL Sweet Corn and Neenah Natural that was embossed with my Swiss Dots CB EF.  The fun checked print is from the October Afternoon Farm Fresh pad.  I used two MS punches around the check panel.  This card was finished off with some faux stitching,  red satin ribbon and a couple of little MS butterfly punchies. 

Hugs,

LOL! You can never have too many sponge daubers!!! (I even keep back up daubers to come to the rescue in the event of a sponging emergency)

Wowza, you are so rockin' Nina's new set! Very creative ideas.

These cards are beautiful Melissa!!!
I love the embossing on the first card and the red check with kraft is beautiful.
I've just been admiring your cards over on Nina's blog too. I'm so frustrated having to wait two weeks for my stamps to arrive from STV - I can't wait to play with these. Congratulations you're doing a great job for Nina!
