Now, I hope you’re sitting carefully on your chair because I have something to tell you. I don’t want you falling off. These cards I am going to show you ARE NOT using ‘Great Friend’ Stampset!!!!! It’s Ok Lynda, you can breathe!!! I thought I needed to ink up some other sets. My poor ‘Great Friend’ set is nearly worn out. I’ve lost count of how many times I have cut that little butterfly and the frame out.
This first card is using ‘A Rose is a Rose’ set that I borrowed. I was playing around with it. I have to say this is about the only decent card I ended up with. I thought afterwards that I should have embossed the outline image. That would have made it ‘pop’ out. Maybe when I borrow this set again I will try that!!! Maybe I should even take a better picture!!!!!!
I stamped the centre in Regal Rose and then lined up the outline with the SAJ (Stamp -A- Ma- Jig) and stamped that in Rose Red. I inked up the inside leaves with Old Olive and stamped it off on scrap paper and then stamped it on the card. I inked up the outline in Old Olive and stamped that on the leaves lining it up with the SAJ. I adhered it to the Rose Red card and punched a slot with the slot punch and threaded through the ribbon. Adhered this onto the base with the Raspberry Tart DSP piece. I think I could have layered the rose a bit more too. Mmmm! I will have to borrow that set again!!
Card: Old Olive, Rose Red, Whisper White, Raspberry Tart DSP.
Ink: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Old Olive.
Stamps: A Rose is a Rose, Short and Sweet.
Other: Horizontal slot punch, Old Olive grosgrain ribbon.
The next card uses the hostess set “Live like you Mean it”. This was the first time I had played with it. It was a quick card.
I stamped the flower in Regal Rose and then the flower outline in Rose Red. I adhered this to a Certainly Celery mat, stapled a piece of Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon. I had adhered a piece of Raspberry Tart DSP to the Rose Red card base and adhered the stamped piece onto this. I stamped up the greeting from ‘short and sweet’ inRose Red onto Certainly Celery card and punched it out using the Word Window Punch. I mounted this with dimensionals on the card.
Stamps: Live Like you Mean it, Short and Sweet.
Ink: Regal Rose, Rose Red.
Card: Rose Red, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Raspberry Tart DSP.
Other: Word Window punch, Certainly Celery Grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals, stapler.
There you have it!! Thanks for Looking! I hope you have time to stamp today! As for me I have to run. I have a workshop tonight, a Girls Night In event tomorrow and my Christmas Card Buffet on Saturday. So a busy time ahead! Stop by again soon!
