This is the last of the wedding cards I made for my lovely friend soon-to-be-bride.
I’ve used the same colours as before – So Saffron, Brushed Gold and Very Vanilla. I stamped the En Francais in Gold ink – but stamped off to make the colour lighter. Then I stamped the Medallion in Versamark ink and covered it with clear embossing powder. I heated the powder so it melted and once that was finished, I sponged So Saffron ink around the Medallion to make it pop out – also known as the technique of emboss resist.
For the sentiment, SNEEK PEEK I used a new Level 3 Hostess stamp set, Occasional Quotes, and used my So Saffron marker to colour and stamp only the “thank you”. I punched the Brushed Gold cardstock with the scallop edge punch and paper pierced a strip of So Saffron cardstock with my mat pack. A few pearls (non-SU) finished it off.
Emboss resist is a really cool technique which, I thought, looked fab using Close as a Memory. Fortunately, I don’t have anyone to give this card to yet. I made it for a technique workshop the other night.
I stamped the flowers in Versamark, then embossed it with white embossing powder. After that, I sponged Kiwi Kiss ink over the image … and then polished it off with a tissue. Using my double-rectangle punch, I added the Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla satin ribbon which coordinates with the Kiwi Kiss paper I’ve used.
Last weekend we were in Canberra for my sister’s 30th birthday … animal print theme! It was a fantastic party, awesome night (except poor Cath lost her voice) .. and the kids were even good even though it was a late night!
My card is nothing like we were dressed … but this is what I made for her…
It was an entirely unexpected card, nothing like I had in my head to start with … all I knew was that I wanted a card using my new toy, the Sticky Cut Letters, with Chunky Sprinkles! After that, I stamped Baroque Motifs in versamark and heat embossed it in white … using the emboss resist technique … I then sponged over the white embossing with Pink Pirouette … rubbed off the excess ink with a tissue and then added the gorgeous and coordinating Pink Pirouette ribbon! It really only took about 15 minutes to make … once I stopped looking at the blank white paper!!
The papers I’ve used are Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White.
