Stepped up Thoughts and Prayers

Good morning! As the title of this post implies this is the stepped up card that I mentioned in an earlier post. I used the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set again but this time instead of using the Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the image I used Versamark to stamp with then used the Stampin' Pastels to add color to the Versamark. The colors used on this card are Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Very Vanilla and Old Olive. For Stamp Club we used Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Pastels and lightly tapped the Versamark areas. You don't want to rub as this will smear your image. The Thinking of You... is inked with the Night of Navy Stampin Write Marker, stamped on Very Vanilla Card Stock and Punched out with the 2"x 1 3/8" Oval Punch. There is a Old Olive Decorative Label Punch behind the sentiment. Before the main panel was added to the card we added a layer of Old Olive to the top and a layer of Daffodil Delight that was punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the bottom. We also added a piece of Night of Navy Taffeta Ribbon across the card. A knot was added to the ribbon to add interest. Finally the sentiment was added with Stampin' Dimensionals. The layout is the same basic layout as the first Thoughts and Prayers card but with the new technique and added punched elements this card takes on a different look. Not sure if I will get any stamping done today or not. I need to clean up from last nights club and put away the supplies before I start another project so we will see how productive I get today. The sky is starting to cloud up again so it looks like another dreary day is in store for us. Maybe I will take a few moments to stamp. It always improves my mood. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Tonya
