Elegant and Inspirational Totally Cards Tuesday

Here are two cards we will be making in my December Totally Cards Tuesday. I am going to feature two beautiful inspirational sets from TAC's most recent Serendipity Magazine. The anchor card features images and sentiments from Anchor to My Soul and the bird card features image and sentiment from Little Bird. Both stamps sets are beautiful and up lifting. I thought that they would make the perfect class. So that is the inspirational part now on to the elegant part...see the blue pattern paper on the bird card and the kraft and olive pattern paper on the anchor card? The patterns on these cards are stamped with TAC's Victorian Elements. I used Palette Prussian Blue on white for the bird and Palette Landscape stamped second generation on Kraft for the anchor card. Doesn't it make pretty pattern paper? Other supplies used to make these cards include TAC's Scarlet Cardstock, SU! Old Olive Cardstock, Blue Cardstock is from my stash, I think it was Hobby Lobby, I used Copic Markers from Caboodles sets A, F and C, Deckle Scissors and Nestie Labels Four Die, Paper Piercer and Ribbon from Bazzill. One other neat thing before I go get back to work...see the mini brads on the anchor card? They were an ugly shade of grey...I colored them with two coats of my darkest red Copic and now they match the card perfect! It's a great way to get your money-worth out of your Copic investment!
Happy Stampin'!
