hello friends! haven't posted in a few days so i thought i would share a couple of cards that i made earlier this week. for both cards is did some collage stamping. the first card was made for two splitcoaststampers challenges: the CAS challenge and the color challenge.
the CAS challenge at splitcoaststampers was to use collage on your card, stamping or otherwise. obviously i did collage stamping. i used three of my favorite stampin up! sets: bliss; vintage fresh and because i care. the ink colors are stampin up!'s cherry cobbler (my all time favorite red) and old olive. i started by stamping the border image using cherry cobbler. the hydrangea image was then stamped using old olive. i inked up the large damask image with some cherry cobbler and then stamped it off on scrap paper before stamping it on the cardstock. i followed the same process for the butterfly except that i used old olive ink. the sentiment was stamped using black ink to make it standout a bit more. i absolutely LOVE how this card turned out!
the second card i made just for fun using some of my favorite hero arts stamps (hydrangea and carte postal) and the same color combo. for this card instead of using cream cardstock (as i did with the first card) i used white cardstock for the stamping and mounted it on a cherry cobbler card base. all the stamping was done following the method i set up for the first card. and once, again, i LOVE how this card turned out. in fact, both cards turned out exactly how i envisioned they would. don't you jsut love it when that happens??? i know i do!!
