Today I'm sharing some samples I made for Sharon from The Scrapbook Cottage. And I actually designed the cards with NO pattern paper. Imagine that, lol. I wanted the stamps to stand out, so I decided not to use any pattern paper to compete with them. I did use embossing folders and other techniques to add texture. Let's take a look.
I used Impressabilities with Nestabilities for the background. I love how the border stamp frames the sentiment.
I stamped, and cut out the tree. Then attached it with Foam Squares and added Stickles.
Ya know I had to use a new Martha Stewart Punch somewhere:) This is the Ribbon Loop corner and border punch. I wanted to show that you don't have to stick with circles...and I didn't use the border stamp.
I coloured in the cake with Copics, and added Smooch to the icing and cake stand.
I stamped the image on Spring Iris CS, and the border on White Daisy CS. I then cut them out with Nestabilities, and attached the image inside the border.
I used Smooch to colour in the image, and add the detail at the bottom.
For this card I stamped the image and cut it out using Nestabilities. I then stamped the border sentiment, but when I cut it out I only used the top half. For the background, I embossed the lines with my Scor-It and pierced some holes in the corners. The image is coloured with Copics.
For this card I cut a scalloped window in the front. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch, coloured the flowers with Copics, and added Stickles to the bow.
I stamped the image on a separate piece of CS, because it was easier to line up with the window.
Last, but not least,
The image I stamped on White Daisy CS, and attached it with Foam Squares to the Border piece of CS. I used 2 Cuttlebug EF for the background, and another new Martha Stewart Punch:)
This time I coloured the image with chalk, and added Stickles to the bow.
Hope you have a great day, thanks for stopping by!
