Super Saturday with Dianne / Les Super Samedis avec Dianne

Hello everyone, Dianne here! Today I'm posting a card I made for the Magenta Card Exchange. In case you don't know about it, for a couple of years Magenta has been sponsoring a card exchange which is organized by DT member Mariëtte van Leeuwen. It's held over on Facebook at Magenta Style - Passion Studio. If you have not joined that group, you definitely should. It's a great place to share and view cards made with Magenta products.

Here's my card for this month that I got to send to someone in the Netherlands. It's really fun to participate in the card exchange. Several times I have gotten to have really interesting FaceBook Messenger conversations with crafters in other countries that I have sent cards to. One of the things that I have learned is that card-makers and paper crafters all over the world have so much in common. I have met such wonderful people who participate in this craft.

If you are interested in joining the card exchange, it will be taking a break for the Summer and should be starting back up again in the Fall. When it starts up again, Mariëtte will send out a call on the Magenta Style - Passion Studio page. I hope you'll join us!

These are the tools I used to make this card, plus the Magenta Stencil TM277. I blended Distress ink inside the stencil and stamped the Graceful Tri-Petals stamp. I colored inside the petals with Prismacolor pencils. Once I finished the coloring, I put the panel back into my stamp platform and stamped again using Versamark ink. I embossed with gold embossing powder, and then stamped the sentiment and embossed that in gold as well.
