This card was first embossed with the snowflake folder on white card stock. The cute snowman was stamped in black and colored with our wonderful markers. One end is a fine writing or outline tip and the other end is a paint brush tip for larger area to color. I bought my first set of markers over 8 years ago and they are still good. When coloring on your stamp just be sure that you use the side of the marker not the tip and it will last much longer! I enjoy coloring with the markers as it gives a variety of colors on your project. I also like to emboss my main stamped image in clear or white then when you color you have the raised image to help you stay in the lines and it gives your image a little more dimension and variety to you the project.

There is a shadow on the wreath card but I wanted to show you how beautiful the new pewter embossing powder is and it is so bright and beautiful this really doesn't do it justice! The background was embossed with a folder and then the small ribbon attached to the top of the wreath. This card is quick, easy and still very elegant! This next card was made with my cutting machine, I am getting better at using it and I love to use all of the supplies together to get such a different look.
