Today was Make and Take day at Stamp and Deliver. It was my off month for demoing so I got the chance to make all 4 cards. This first card used a new stamp by Paperbag Studios called Thistle.
We stamped it with black ink onto the designer paper. Next we added partial stamping with a script stamps. The follow your dreams sentiment was added but as you can see, I didn’t align it very well. Purple chalk was added to the flower, green for the stem and black to accentuate the frame around the flower. Put the layers together and it was finished.
The second card I am showing you used a cute cupcake stamp. It was stamped on yellow textured cardstock for the frosting and pink patterned paper for the cake. Each was cut out and put back together to form the image. The same patterned paper is on the bottom of the card along with the sentiment and a strip of silver glittered candle stickers. Larger candle stickers were added to the main layer. A glue pen and extra fine glitter were outlined around the frosting for added glitz.
The third card uses a faux postage template by Just For Fun. We stamped it in black then used chalk to color in the backgrounds. The purses were stamped next and a gold gel pen for highlights. The sentiment was stamped and layered on the reverse side of the paper. Postage scissors were used to cut the two images out. A strip of ribbon from May Arts runs along the left side of the card. A ribbon punch was used to thread it on the paper.
The fourth and final card uses a color combo that is a favorite of mine, pink and brown. We began by stamping the main image in Colorbox Chalk Toffee. Then added the flowers in Colorbox Chalk Pink Pastel. The main image panel was also sponged with Toffee. The pink layer was distressed using a Tim Holtz distress tool then sponged with Pink Pastel. The main card base was also sponged with Pink Pastel. May Arts ribbon was wrapped around the top two layers of cardstock. A tan layer of cardstock was added. The flowers were layered together with glue dots and a small pearl glued in the center. This one has a shabby chic look to it.
This was how I spent my afternoon, what did you do? After dinner we are meeting friends up at Barnes & Noble to relax with a caramel frappuccino.
