Tonight I want to share two more of the cards I made on Saturday. I don't have a certain style, preferring just to make what feels good. I have lots and lots of stamps.... I can help myself buying new ones. At present I probably have about 5 stamps I haven't even inked up yet!!!!! But one new set I got last week had an outing.
This set is from Pure Innocence and is called " Being Cute is What I Do…" I stamped it on water card stock and used Copics to colour her hair and face and then stamped the image again onto dotted PP and black paper and pieced the pieces. The dotted paper was blue dots, but I used a Tombow marker to change the colour to tie in with the flower centre. The PP I used were from My Grafico - a free set that I got awhile ago. I printed out the four colours onto one A4 sheet and then trimmed them. I saw a neat technique on Gina K's Stamp TV that showed how to make a faux corner fold. I had to add a piece of PP down the front, as I wasn't concentrating while I was using my Scor-pal to fold it.... I finished it off with a sentiment by Hero Arts.
I have just realised that 6 out of the 7 cards I made on Saturday had at least one Hero Arts stamp on it.... They are great stamps and are my favourites. I'd say around 80% of stamps are by Hero Arts .
My next share is definitely a Hero Arts card..... I purchased the Wish You Were Here set on Saturday as I have wanted a chair stamp for some time. And it was the last set in store....
I used some of the left over PP from the earlier card and stamped the Envelope pattern over it and then the chair stamp. I cut out the chair and layered it onto a circle I had with me, cut out of a paint chip. I then layered that onto an other piece of the PP. Then I added to the pink card and the white card base. I used a Spellbinders tag to cut out the sentiment and the added some distress ink to soften the look. I finished off by adding some pearls to the chair back.
I'm writing this on a very hot humid night. The last few days have been very humid again. At 10.00pm on Saturday night it was still 21degrees. And it feels like that now... plus I'm sitting with the laptop sitting on my lap as I am watching CSI while typing this. All the new seasons TV programmes have started and all the good stuff is on at the same time!!!!!!!!!
Have a great week.
