I am excited to be hopping with Melanie today. For my first card I started with by stamping the sunflower in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on 3 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ piece of white cardstock. It was colored with Copic Markers (Y13, Y15, Y17, E97, E99, YG21, YG25, YG63, YG67, C00, C1, BV20). The image was masked, then a background was stamped over it in Antique Linen Distress ink. The image was cut in three 1 1/4″ wide strips and the edges were sponged with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress ink.
I ran the strips through my Xyron and adhered them to a slightly bigger piece of black cardstock. The edges of the layers were stitched. The layers were adhered to the card base with foam adhesive squares, a 4 1/4″ x 9 1/2″ piece of Lizzard Bazzill cardstock folded in half.
A sentiment from the set was stamped on a piece of white cardstock, cut with one of the Sentiment Strip Die-namic dies. The edges were lightly sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. A button was tied to the upper right hand side of the sentiment strip. The strip was then adhered to the lower right side of the card. Black Rhinestones finish off the card.
I created a second card with that set with last week’s Color Challenge on SCS.
I started by stamping the Mistletoe image in Pink Petunia VersaMagic ink on Neenah Natural White cardstock. It was cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The die was kept over the cardstock, the image was masked and the bigger sentiment was stamped over the circle with Antique Linen Distress ink. The edges were sponged with the same color. The image was adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with a Scallop Circle Nestabilities die. Part of the right side was cut off and the edge was stitched.
A 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Natural White cardstock was embossed with the Elegance M-Bossabilities folder. The bottom left and top right corner were rounded before the edges of the layer were stitched and the circle layer was adhered to the top left. A sentiment was stamped on to the circle layer with Versafine ink.
May Arts Crochet Ribbon was adhered to the lower part of the layer. Pink Seam binding was tied above it. A Spellbinders Pennant die was used to cut and emboss more Natural White cardstock. The word Mistletoe was stamped on it before it was tied to the bow with Linen thread and a button. Everything was adhered to the card base, a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half. Three rhinestones on the top right edge finish off the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
