Projects

I have four cards to inspire you to get your stamp sets out and create some cards of your own for this Card Drive! My first duo features basic stamping.

To create the Dad’s card, I stamped the image from the Faceted Stars Stamp Set onto a card base. I used a combination of inks: Arctic, Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue and Sapphire. I cut the letters for the word DAD out of a dark blue cardstock several times using dies from the Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set and glued all layers together.

Next, I stamped a sentiment onto a white strip of cardstock and glued it onto the word. For the Mom’s card, I stamped flowers onto a card base from Simply The Best stamp set with Altenew Obsidian Pigment ink.

I cut the letters for the word MOM out of a rose glitter paper using dies from the Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set and glued them onto a piece of vellum and mounted it onto the card base. I stamped a sentiment onto a white strip of cardstock from  Simply The Best stamp set and foam mounted it.

The next card is a simple floral card. I was inspired by one of my favorite card makers Agnieszka Malyszek. I stamped images from the Dainty Bouquet Stamp Set using several Altenew inks: Cotton Candy, Peach Perfect and Dark Chocolate. For my sentiment, I used Tall Alpha Die Set and Ornate Foliage Stamp Set.

My last tall card features pencil coloring on dark cardstock. This is one of my favorite techniques. I adore using colored pencils on dark card stock. It always looks so gorgeous. This time I decided to use dark green cardstock.

I gold heat embossed the images from the Engagement Wishes Stamp Set onto green cardstock. I then colored the flowers and leaves using Prismacolor colored pencils.

I used the following colors:

Once my coloring was done, I ink blended the borders of the panel in Altenew Aqualicious ink. For my sentiment, I used Tall Alpha Die Set ( I used negative die-cut from my previous card ) and Wonderful Wycinanki Stamp Set.
