Just a few cards I made

This card is actually a pocket card. The flowers were stamped with Stampin' Up vanilla craft ink then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then cut the images out and layered them using foam tape.

I just love this cat image. She's a grumpy cat and I like the saying. . .hmmm very convincing. The background was stamped with Stampin' Up "Island Blossoms" using the "resist stamping" technique.

Quick instructions for the "resist stamping" technique:

On glossy card stock stamp image using Versamark.

  • Heat emboss the image with clear embossing powder.
  • With a brayer, ink over the image using dye ink.
The image stamped with versamark ink will resist the ink thereby, the image will appear white and the rest of the card will be colored with the ink that you used.

I absolutely love these cat stamps by Penny Black. They are so detailed and so cute. It doesn't take a lot of work to create a nice card using these stamps.

House Mouse are one of my favorite stamps. They are so detailed and easy to work with. House Mouse are sold by Stampabilities. There are other brands that carry this line. . .I believe the other one is Stampa Rosa.

This card was created using 3 different Stampin' Up set. The flower and background images were stamped with "Looks like Spring", the verse "happy" was stamped with "Polka dots and paisley" and the "birthday" verse was stamped with the "Sincere Salutations" set.
The flower background was stamped using white pigment ink on a dark red cardstock. It's the only way the images will show up using ink alone. . .

I made a bunch more but I'll post only these cards for now.

Unitl later. . .
