Fun cards

I was inspired awhile back by THIS card by Jennifer McGuire, and wanted to make something similar.    I created the words with my Cricut and using the Design Studio software.  I can't remember what cartridges I used other than Base Camp and Plantin Schoolbook.  It was awhile ago I cut these, maybe 3-4 months ago and just now made something with them because I couldn't remember where I stashed them!

So each one of the words was cut on white cardstock, and then heat embossed with white powder. I used two Hero Arts background stamps, Dots and Flowers and the Woodgrain one.  All the papers are scraps from KI Memories, October Afternoon, Making Memories and who knows what else.  I used a few EK Success punches, and a bunch of misc stamps.

I inked over this one with the Tim Holtz inking tool and foam applicators with Frayed Burlap Distress ink.










This one uses Peeled Paint ink...
