Scrap Rehab – “Donut be sad”

This set of four (4) cards has been made using another Operation Write Home Card Sketch #3.

I am working at getting comfortable making greeting cards.  I love making books and journals.  I can slap those out with confidence.  Card making on the other hand is a skill I am working to develop.  So I am “going to school” with all these cards I’m making.  Learning how to use the Copic Markers and doing rubber stamping without smearing or making ghost images :/  I’m really good at both of those, sadly.  Okay, enough of that.  Let’s get on with the presentation 😀

Scrap Rehab - "Donut Be Sad

Scrap Rehab – “Donut Be Sad”

The Harlequin embossing on the background piece is a Stampin’ Up! Textures Plate.  I have no idea if it is still available for sale.  The stamped image in the center circle is from a very old Stampin’ Up! set titled “Comfort Food”.  The rubber is purple instead of the common red of their wood mount stamps.  That is what makes me think this is a very old set.  I’ve used the stamp which says “Donut be sad”.

I had to uncover my old typewriter.  I don’t have a stamp with the phrase “Miss You”.  Not a single one.

Typed words - Miss You

This is the little “Donut” image.  I used a couple of Copic markers.  E33 for the cake part of the donut.  RV13 and RV21 were used for the “frosting”.  I used a silver gel pen to color in the tear drop.

I used a white “Gelly Pen” to follow some of the lines of the harlequin pattern and make some faux stitching around the other two circles on this front.  The cards have a white insert with no sentiment.  Maybe someone would be more free to write how they miss the person this card would be for.

The color selection for this set of four cards was accomplished using the Color Wheel….not my most favorite thing to use but I’m getting a bit more familiar with it.  Here is a video I made featuring these papers.

Are you getting just a little excited about “shopping” through your scrap stash 😀  I’m off to begin Card Sketch #4 next.
