Serene Silhouettes

Image

This is a card I made last year for a card night with some of the lovely ladies who come and stamp with me.  At the time, I looked everywhere for inspiration with this stamp set, Serene Silhouettes, but in the end I was inspired by one of my own cards!  Honestly, that doesn’t happen often. But this is the card that inspired me here.

I really like this colour combo of Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.

Here is a close up of the same card with the sentiment “just for you” instead:

Black Swallowtail Sympathy card

Black Swallowtail Sympathy card

This is the Swallowtail stamp, inked and Versamark and heat-embossed with black powder.

I love the colours Black and Crumb Cake together! And Versamark ink is so useful. Along with the embossing powder, I’ve also stamped Serene Silhouettes for a background effect in Versamark ink. There is a Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp, “with sympathy”, stamped in the corner of the card with black ink.

This took 10 minutes to create!

Thanks for looking!

Close as a Memory embossed

This is a card I made for a technique workshop last month.  The technique was embossing and this was a great card to show off how great black looks on white and vice versa.  I totally cased this card here on SCS and used the classic stamp set Close as a Memory.  Thanks for the inspiration!  And what a lovely sympathy card …

Thanks for looking 🙂

Close as a Memory … emboss resist

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.

Thanks for looking 🙂
