Sending Happy Thoughts!

Happy Sunday!  I finally had a chance to get crafty today.  I am popping in with a card to share. 

For my card, I started with true black card stock.  I used SSS Thanks and Leaves stamp set. I used an anti-static powder bag, an acrylic blockversamark ink, and heat embossed using white embossing powderI put all the leaves on the block stamped the entire panel. I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die.  

I layered with gold card stock. I used foam tape and adhered to a top folding true black card stock base.  I used an acrylic block, a artist brush, and some white acrylic paint mixed with water to create white splatters.  

For the focal sentiment, I used Honey Bee Honey Cuts layered "hello" die.  I layered gold foil card stock, select white, and true black card stocks. I stamped the sentiment from SSS Tiny Word stamp set.  I die cut the sentiment strip with Honey Bee stamps Honey Cuts Sentiment Banners.  I finished the card with a few gold sequins and some tiny golden stars.

For your convenience, here is a list of many of the products I generally use every time I make a card.
