I think these tie stamps are so fun... just the perfect size for cards. Had to use the dotted Cuttlebug embossing folder for the card front -- haven't used it in awhile. Sandi N told me about Beckett Radiance paper and I used some to stamp the images. It is supposed to be great with colored pencil and Gamsol. It sure is! I love the look and how easily it blends on this vs regular old cardstock. Who knew! Thanks Sandi. Love it!
Supplies: Hero Arts stamps and acetate card, Prisma pencils, Gamsol, Cuttlebug embossing template, Bazzill cardstock, pop dots
Now for the giveaway! I have more ribbon than I will ever be able to use so I thought I'd pass these on to someone else to have fun with. Just leave a comment on my blog and you will be in the random drawing. I will pick a winner on Friday morning. Good luck!
I wanted to try sort of a reverse pop dotting -- I guess it's creating a shadow box effect. The pop dots are between the card front and the dotted paper circle underneath. Then the owl is stamped on the inside of the card. Does that make sense?
Supplies: Hero Arts owl stamps, Bo Bunny dotted paper, Tres Jolie buttons.
Be sure to stop back tomorrow for another giveaway. Of what? I have no clue yet! :-) So we'll all be surprised! heehee
I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! It was a truly perfect weekend here in Cincy and with the weather being so ideal I didn't spend much time in my studio making cards. Save that for a rainy day! :-) But I did make this one. I love the Father's Day stamp set from Gina K Designs and couldn't wait to play with it. It's so hard to find cute stuff for Dad, I think and this set has so much fun stuff in it.
Supplies: Bazzill cardstock, Bo Bunny dot paper, Gina K Designs stamp, Prisma pencils and Gamsol, Memories black ink, mini-brads, pop dots (the grill piece is popped off the card front, hard to see!
I like to use ribbon to create the stem and leaves of a flower. Pretty simple, really but I think it adds a little extra to the card. And it helps me use up all of the ribbon I've collected over the years! :-)
Supplies: Bazzill Cardstock, MME dotted paper, Michaels Ribbon, Hero Arts stamps and gem
... that paper crafters are simply the nicest people on the planet! I've received so many sweet emails from you guys that it warms my heart. And thank you for sharing your talents with the rest of us... I have had fun visiting your blogs as well. Have a great Wednesday! :-)
First ... the giveaway! Many, many thanks for all of the nice comments and for all of you who entered the giveaway. I used the Random Integer Generator and the lucky winner is....
Love the card...You girls rock in these cards...
Today's card is totally inspired by one of Jennifer's cards from class. She gave me some of her extra Scenic Route chipboard butterflies to play with. Like she did in class, I inked the chipboard then stamped over it with a light brown. Such a pretty look. Thanks Jennifer for the inspiration as always!
Supplies: Hero Arts note card, stamps and pearls, Bazzill cardstock, Chalk ink, Scenic Route butterfly chipboard, Bo Bunny dotted paper corner rounder, string (Hobby Lobby)
Another card from class.... The acetate is stamped with the DesignBlock Flourishes stamp from Hero -- a must have! It's then laid over the Bo Bunny paper and flower and under the yellow string and button. The button is not adhered to the card -- the string is wrapped around several times and through the button and tied on. There is a folded white card on the back that is slightly smaller than the card to give you a place to write.
Supplies: Hero Arts flourish stamp and notecard, Bazzill cardstock, Bo Bunny dotted paper, Stamp In Up scalloped circle punch, EK Success flower punch, String from Hobby Lobby, Button (who knows!), Thank you rubon
Don't forget to leave a comment on yesterday's post to be in the drawing for the Cuttlebug embossing folder. I'll do the drawing tomorrow morning. Good luck!
