Sometimes we don’t need a whole lot of doo dads to make a great card. Playing around with ink can really add a wow factor to your cards.
Here I used a 4 x 5.25″ piece of glossy white card stock. I lightly brushed over the card stock with my embossing buddy to clean it of any static. Then I stamped the images on the card stock with Versamark and applied heat with my heat gun. All that was left to do was to apply ink with my sponge daubers. Just press your dauber gently in the ink and dab it on a piece of paper before applying to the glossy paper. Make a swirling motion with the dauber. Now pop it on a 4.25 x 5.5″ card base & add a few embellishments. Voila…… you have a great card!
Use different colors of ink and stamps for an endless array of cards!
HEY THERE, LONG LOST FRIEND!
It’s been so long since I visited you! I was talking to a friend today about her blog and I thought “oh my gosh, when was the last time I visited mine”? Well that all changes today.
Since we last talked, I’ve bitten the bullet and become a Stampin Up Demonstrator. Something I should have done along time ago! I’ve been busy creating up a storm with all the amazing new offerings from Stampin Up. I host classes as often as the ladies want & I’ve made some amazing friendships.
Do you think this would be something you would be interested in? Please feel free to reach out and begin this amazing journey of touching peoples hearts with your wonderful greeting cards.
Want to know how I created these, please don’t hesitate to reach out. One of the things I cherish most about being a Stampin Up Demonstrator is the human contact and the friendships.
Here’s my cards from the last class. It’s only August, but I’m starting to get an itch to make Christmas cards already!
Here’s a quick wedding card I made last night. I used SU’s Love and Laughter stamp set.
We’ll I can’t believe I’m posting twice in one week. I feel like I’m talking to an old friend I’ve just rediscovered! Here’s another 2 cards I’ve made this week. These are “just because” cards! I love randomly sending cards to people just to let them know I am thinking of them!
Well, it’s been so long since I blogged! Life has been busy and I must admit, I haven’t scrapbooked in quite a long time BUT I have been busy making cards!
This week I was inspired to enter a challenge from canyoucaseit.com. They have a color challenge and of course you have to link you blog to enter, just what I needed to get me off my butt! This card was inspired by a Pinterest submission by Jeanie B. I love this stamp set, it makes me feel happy just looking at it! If you want to enter, here’s the link…it’s open until Friday. http://canyoucaseit.com/?p=3313
Hope you are having a wonderful day!
I’ve been trying to find the time to scrapbook and take pics lately but with family life, it’s a balancing act for sure. That’s why I can usually be found in my craftroom in the wee hours of the morning. Here are several PL life sheets I’ve done lately. I almost have July 2014 completed….oh boy, I really need to get my buns in gear.
All the paper I”ve used in these is Simple Stories. I have quite an addiction going now and I refuse to use anything else!
Happy scrapping friends!
In the last few weeks I’ve been preoccupied with taking pictures. Yesterday we decided to go for a walk at the site of the old town in Gander. We took Isabella’s sleigh to tow her on and of course our puppy, Tuukka. Before I left I grabbed my camera, just in case the mood hit me for some pics and boy did it hit. I saw pictures everywhere I looked and ended up doing a wonderful photoshoot. Here are so of them….enjoy!
Cheers peeps and keep snapping!
