This month was no different!
I have already blogged about our other two projects. Today I want to share with you the third:
My card was done on Calypso Coral card stock. I used the Calypso Coral and Old Olive Blendabilities markers to color in the flower. The "splatter" was added in Old Olive by using a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.
If you look closely you will see a stamp from the new Bordering Blooms set close to the crease - very subtly done in Veramark ink.
The final touches for this card were some ribbon and lace tape.
I wanted my stamp club members to use some of the new colors that are now available in the Blendabilities markers, so the colors of our cards were all different!
Here is Barbara's card done with the Night of Navy Blendabilities:
Not sure what to call this technique... It involves gluing some cotton behind the image and then dry embossing it with a stylus in order to make it "poof" outward.
Therefore I call it the "cotton ball poofy" stamp technique! (Very creative, huh?)
Here I will try to explain how to do it in this video:
This is the finished card:
For this card I used the Wetlands stamps that along with the Hardwood background stamp.
The ink used was Early Espresso, done on Very Vanilla card stock.
The base card and layering piece are Old Olive.
I colored the goose using blender pens with Sahara Sand and Old Olive ink pads.
The finishing embellishments are the burlap ribbon, linen thread, and a button.
A wonderful masculine card that has already been sent in the mail!
I can't wait to try this technique on other stamp sets!
A jolly, fat Santa comes quickly to mind....
I might have to get a Santa from the new Holiday catalog that comes out September 1!
