Easel Cards

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I have been meaning to make an easel card for a few weeks now & keep putting it off.  I haven't been stamping much at all the last few weeks.  I go in spurts.  There is a challenge over at Club Posh to make an easle card for winter & you can't used red or green.  My first easel card was easy, I used blues with purple accents. I matches my house anyway.  I made an ATC sized easle card.  Then I got out one of my Martha Stewart clear stamp sets that I got 75% off after Christmas last year.  It's called Gingerbread, so I went with browns.  These ware really fn to make & i think I'lll be making some more. 

Stamps:  Christmas Backgrouns-PSX, Splatter It Up!, Posh Impressions, Winter Wonderland-Inkadinkado, Snowflake Background- Hampton Arts
Inks: Memento- Grape Jelly, Danube Blue, Summer Sky
Papers: Blue Linen, White Glossy, Lavender
Accessories: Pilot Silver Paint Pen, Recolections Brads, Martha Stewart Loop Border, Crystal Lacquer, Martha Stewart Snow Glitter, Anna Griffin Satin Ribbon

This is the larger easel card.  It is 4"x4" and done in all browns.  You can't see it in the pictures, but the entire card has a shimmer to it.  I used the Champagne Mist Tsukeneko All Purpose Ink to make it shimmer.  I filled a Mini Mister with Alcohol & a few drops of the All Purpose Ink & spritzed the card with it.  Instant shimmer!

Stamps: Martha Stewart-Gingerbread set, Posh Impressions-Dasher
Inks: Memento-Rich Cocoa
Paper: Dark Brown, Kraft, Ivory, Tan
Accessories: Pilot Gold Paint Pen,  Amber Crystals, Allegro Cuttlebug Folder

These are wonderful! I especially love the brown one; a whole different look, kind of vintage.
