Good morning!! Hooray, I'm back to stamping!! I had to take a few weeks "off" -- I was busy getting the boys ready for Notre Dame. I can't believe they're BOTH off at college now! It's kinda quiet around here!! haha!!
Anyway, the Nachos have a great sketch for you today:
and my interpretation:
I kept it pretty simple! Don't you love the embossed butterflies?!!!
Good morning!! I have some exciting news!! I've joined the What Will You Stamp? Design Team!! I was so excited when they asked me!! This challenge site gives you a new stamp set each week -- all you have to do is make a project with that set!! So easy!! And, if you ever need an idea for a set, this is a great resource--you'll have all kinds of ideas right at your fingertips!!
This week's set is Zoo Babies!!
This has been a long time favorite of mine! Here's my card -- I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:
Cucumber Crush base card: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
Designer Series Paper: 4" x 5 1/4"
Watercolor Paper: 3" x 4 1/4"
Stamp flower on Watercolor Paper using White Craft Ink. Cover with White Embossing Powder and emboss using the Heat Tool.
With the Watermelon Wonder stamp pad closed, squeeze the lid on to the stamp pad inside. This allows you to pick up ink on the top of the inside case to create a palette.
Color the flower using your Aqua Painter to pick up Watermelon Wonder ink from the top of the stamp pad case. Work slowly to get a wide variety of light and dark color within the small petal areas of the flower. Let dry.
Color the stem the same way using Mint Macaron ink ~ lightly.
Assemble base card. Add DSP.
Add Dimensionals to the Watercolor Paper and adhere to the front of the card.
