Hello and happy Friday! I'm popping in with two cards that I made the other day. First up is a card that I made using the gorgeous So Loved stamp se
t from the new Simon Says Stamp You Are Loved
was so kind to send me a set before the release and I shared a card on Instagram
and my flickr
that I made using the set. The card I'm sharing today was made for the current Color Throwdown challenge
, as well as the current CAS(E) this Sketch challenge
. I started by stamping the outline images I wanted to use in red and green inks from Stampin Up!. I then used the solid images to complete the stamping. Second generation stamping was used for the flowers. I then filled in with additional images from the set. The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Diecember
release and is called Big For You
. Again, Simon Says Stamp
generously sent me this die and I shared a card I made with it on Instagram
. I die cut the sentiment from kraft cardstock and then twice more from white and adhered them together. I trimmed the panel per the CTS layout and then adhered it to a kraft cardstock base. The sentiment was then adhered on top.
The second card is for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge
, as well as the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Christmas
. I have had the Concord & 9th Snow Flurries stamp set and matching dies for ages and I have wanted to make something with them, but unfortunately never found the time. When I went on my second shopping trip to Impress Rubber Stamps I picked up this pad of specialty papers from DCWV. All the papers are in the Rose Gold family so I used several from the set for the card. The big snowflake from the set was stamped using Memento Desert Sand ink as it turned out to be a pretty close match to the rose gold... who knew?! After stamping the panel with the snowflake it was die cut with a rectangle die. I die cut the small snowflake from glitter and mirror cardstocks from the pad and layered then together. Another piece was die cut with a larger rectangle as a mat for the sentiment panel. I turned the sketch on its side because my sentiment looked better that way. I placed the snowflake on the panel, arranged where I wanted the sentiment, removed the snowflake and then stamped the sentiment in VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne. Everything was adhered to the card base and I finished with some Pretty Pink Posh rose gold sequins.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
