Hi! Lucy here waving to all my crafty friends!!!
We are almost there! Yey! Where do you ask?
The Stretch your Stamps class of course. It will begin in 2 days so go ahead and register here. I know is going to be fun and there are a few discounts to our favorite online craft stores, which will make the class a total deal!
On keeping with the class theme I made 3 very different cards using the same stamp set from Hero Arts:
PATTERN HEARTS AND FLOWERS CL596
I loved this set not only for its beautiful images, but also the quality of the transparent clings, is the best I have seen. But on with the cards right?
On this first one (bling, bling ) I used glue ink and fine glitter in three different colors on black cardstock, then I added rhinestones in the center. I also white embossed the stamp sentiment and to finish it off I added white dots all around it with an opaque white gel pen.
On the second one (monochromatic) I made a patterned paper out of the heart in the set; I just stamped a small piece of white cardstock with shadow ink in pool, in different directions all around it. Then I chose a very similar color of cardstock to form my card base , I used a heart die in the front center, pass it through my diecut machine. I adhered the patterned paper I made inside the card so it would be the heart background. Then I stamped the sentiment, color the flower with copics: B12 and BG72, placed it on pop dots and on the card and added the “grand finale”, a polkadotted ribbon in blue tones.
For the third card I went in a more “romantique” direction. I used distressed papers in lilac, pink and green tones, layered them with a piece of kraft cardstock embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. All three layers were corner chomped. Then I stamped both the roses and the sentiment with Memento tuxedo black ink, and colored the roses with copics, the lilac in BV02 and BV04, the pink one in R32 and RV11, the yellow one in Y21 and Y23 and the leaves in YG03 and YG63.
I placed both stamped and colored images on popdots an as a final touch I added a trio of colored pearls in pink, yellow and blue.
I hope you had a terrific party all my friends from USA ( Independence Day) and Canada (Canada’s Day)that I know you recently celebrated !!! And to everyone keep enjoying these days of summer and take tons of pictures of all that you love!
And may the craft mojo be with you!
