Hand-Crafted Greeting Cards and Paper Gifts

Hello Darling

This is another quick-and-easy card done in a single color...this time Perfect Plum.

IMG_0421

A layer of Perfect Plum card stock was embossed with the Lovely Lace Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A strip of Whisper White CS was stamped with the sentiment and image from Hello Darling. After inserting the brad Candy Dot Base and the Perfect Plum Candy Dot this layer was attached to the embossed layer. Then the embossed layer was added to the Perfect Plum card base with Dimensionals.

Fun facts:
• This set and embossing folder also coordinate with patterns on the Gold Soirée Specialty Paper.
• Did you know that in addition to adding a bit of shine to Candy Dots, the Candy Dot Bases will also add another dimension to the Basic Jewels Pearls and Rhinestones?

August Kinda Eclectic

Here’s another card we made in August’s class:

IMG_0420

It mostly features the stamp set Kinda Eclectic, and is a variation I believe of one of the Make-and-Takes at Convention this year. I CASE’d it from Brenda Keenan. You may notice the hexagon background, and be wondering...no, we don’t have a new background stamp, we used the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to make it! To do this we lightly inked up the back (raised) side of the embossing folder, placed the card front on it, and lightly pressed with a hand. I used more ink and more pressure to get a pretty solid impression...less ink and less pressure would make a more vintage-y/grunge-y look. We also sponged the edges with Sahara Sank ink.

The sunburst image was stamped in Hello Honey, and the leaves in Mossy Meadow. Each pair was inked once, stamped twice. The Sahara Sand strip was sponged, snipped, stamped with the dots and finally the sentiment in Mossy Meadow. The butterflies were stamped in Blackberry Bliss on scrap, then punched and popped up. The little flowers were punched with the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and highlighted with a White Gel Pen. The tiniest pearls are in the centers. A double-length of Linen Thread finishes off the card.



Still time to sign up for class on Friday!
