$15 Gift Card to Kat Scrappiness

Angie's 1st Card

My first card was made with patterned paper from my stash with leaves on it and the Hero Arts Prayers stamp and cut set, a couple of circle dies from my stash and the Gina Marie Designs Nesting Wonky Rectangle dies.  I finished it off with some Kat Scrappiness Clear Droplets Sampler Pack.

Angie's 2nd Card


The background is aluminum foil embossed with a leaf embossing folder.  I added black paint after embossing it and then wiped the paint off so it would stay in the creases. 

The foil panel is cut with one of the Gina Marie Designs Nesting Wonky Rectangle dies along with a larger wonky die on the patterned paper.  The sentiment is from Newton's Nook Happy Thoughts stamp set embossed in Ranger Fine Detail White Embossing Powder and cut with the smaller size of the Gina Marie Designs Nesting Wonky Rectangle dies I adhered it all together and then added a few sequins from Kat's Scrappiness Silver City Sequin Mix sequins filled with tiny dots of Ranger Black Enamel Dots.
I hope you will find the time to join the challenge

Peggy's Card

I used the Welcome Autumn digital set from Sparkle n Sprinkle, specifically the bird and sentiment, for this card.  The background is  an old scrap of paper from my stash.  The leaves are covered with glitter.  The bird is colored with Promarkers and highlighted with Stickles.
