Hey crafty friends!
I’m popping in today to share a couple of cards I made for a friend. She’s getting married and asked for a few cards for special people in their lives, like the father/mother of the groom and father/mother of the bridge. Their colors are navy and silver and their theme is polka dots, so I wanted to incorporate those things into the cards I made.
For the first card, I used this to die for stamp set from Brutus Monroe for my focal point. I colored up these adorable bunnies using Copic markers and die cut my cardstock panel using one of the stitched rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn. I snagged the Simon Says Stamp background ‘Falling Snow’ and stamped it on my cardstock with VersaMark Ink. I masked off my bunnies so they wouldn’t get ink on them!
Then, I did some ink blending with Distress Ink in Chipped Sapphire, Stormy Sky, and Tumbled Glass. I softly blended the inks together where they met so that the color gradually faded to white at the bottom of my cardstock. I stamped ‘thank you’ from ‘Big Scripty Greetings’ from Simon Says Stamp and printed the rest of my sentiment on the computer. I ink blended those using Tumbled Glass and popped the ‘thank you’ up on foam for a little dimension. I absolutely love how this one turned out!
For my next card, my friend wanted a super hero theme added in somehow. I’m happy to report I didn’t disappoint. I used a bunch of different products for this one from all over, and it really came together nicely! I used the same Distress Ink colors and added in some Scattered Straw for the ‘light’ coming from the city. I splattered tiny drops of acrylic paint on my ink blended background for a ‘starry night’ effect. I used another Simon Says Stamp sentiment here (from ‘Thanks’) and white heat embossed it so it would really pop against the background. I’m so in love with this card!
Thanks for checking in and I’ll see you again soon with another card!
