Hello, how is everyone doing post Creativation? Did you stare at your tablet all weekend waiting for updates like I did? So much crafty eye candy. Not so much fun for the bank account. Still, I am going to check out the February releases and pick out a few things.
Todays cards feature the same formula…a background stamp, florals and a sentiment.
The first card uses stamps from Gina K Designs. The background was stamped using the Roselace Background stamp in Delicata Gold ink. I cut the panel out of MFT Tickled Pink cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Wonky Stitched Die.
The Rose Bouquet stamp was stamped on some Catherine Pooler white cardstock with Versamark Ink and embossed with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. I colored it with Prismacolor colored pencils and cut out the individual leaves and flowers. The colors I used are: Pink Madder Lake 129, Ivory 103, Middle Purple Pink 125, Fuchsia 123, Pine Green 167, Permanent Green 266 and Premiered Olive Green 167.
The sentiment is from Gina K Designs Scripty Sayings 2. Again, stamped with Versamark Ink and embossed with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. I cut out the sentiment and layed it over the florals. I attached to a white card base and added some leaves in the corners.
The second card was created using stamp sets for My Favorite Things. The background is the MFT Floral Fantasy Background Stamp.
I stamped it on MFT Ripe Raspberry cardstock with Versamark sticky ink and embossed with Recollections clear embossing powder. I cut the panel out using SSS stitched rectangle die.
I stamped the images from the Brilliant Blooms on scrap white cardstcock with Versamark ink and embossed with Hero Arts Gold embossing powder. I then colored over the images with my Versamarker and embossed with the gold embossing powder. I then stamped on top of the images with Versamark ink and embossed with Ranger Cranberry embossing powder.
I cut the images out and arranged on my card panel. I added my sentiment from the Things with Wings stamp set from MFT. I used Kooltak clear adhesive squares to attach my sentiment. I can see them, but that doesn’t bother me. I attached the card panel to a SSS Fog card base.
For the final card, same thing. Stamped and embossed the background. I used SSS Modern Rose Blooms background stamp and embossed with Versamark ink and Recollections clear embossing powder. I used SSS School House Red Cardstock. I cut the card panel out using SSS Wonky Stitched die.
I then stamped florals from the Kind Flowers stamp set and embossed with the same gold embossing powder. I did emboss some of the leaves with Ranger Rich Red and added gold to the leaves. I cut the flowers out and arranged them on my card panel. The sentiment is from Kind Flowers as well. Again, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and used Hero Arts gold embossing powder. I attached the card panel onto a gold glimmer card base. I am not sure what company made the gold paper.
That sums up the creation of these three cards. Thank you for stopping by!
