Kindness by Sparkle N Sprinkle Sketch

Hi! I'm showing a VERY easy card today, which features the SNS Challenge Sketch -- it's a simple sketch, conducive to just about any image (and a chance at winning any large stamp set!).

A new embossing folder called Compassionate from Couture Creations was used. (I love love LOVE it!). Dry Embossing on mirror cardstock always produces a WOW card. 

Using a sanding block, I lightly removed some of the finish from the embossed mirror cardstock. It is burnished with a bit more pressure on the detail-raised areas (bringing out the white base), and more lightly on the bold-raised areas (just enough to deglaze the mirror aspect, but leaving the color). 

The Vintage Floral Punch Around the Page was used as the backdrop for "Your Kindness Is Appreciated" by SNS. It is embossed with the new Mulberry Tuscany Creamy Cosmic embossing powder.

Also used are Pink Sherbert and Lemonade dye inks, and VersaMark ink. Simple!

Thanks for stopping by.
Stamping Hugs,

Wow factor is right! I love, love, love that embossing folder too - and on the metallic cardstock - what a stunning background it makes. Super card Donna - you rock!

Gorgeous, Donna! I never thought about sanding mirror paper but I love the way it looks on your card. I have to get in gear here and get my SnS sketch card done before the month has run out! Maybe I'll find some time this evening or tomorrow evening. BTW, love the new masthead on your blog! Really beautiful.

WOnderful creation Donna, I love the rich and gorgeous colors on this one!
Thanks for stopping by my blog to say hello! : )
regarding your question on my accordian album, yes, I just use regular 12x12 card stock but glue them back to back to make a long strip, if I ever make another one, I will do a tutorial, will keep you posted!
