Hello friends! I spent some time in my stamp room yesterday after watching videos from the Stenciled class from Online Card Classes. Love those classes! I made three cards based on their tutorials, but one right at the end messed up! Don't you hate that? I'll hopefully redo it today and post it tomorrow.
One of the tutorials is taught by my new stamping idol, Jennifer McGuire. I created this card based on one she did in the class. I used a stencil from Memory Box and first sponged some Butter Bar ink through the stencil. I then moved it a little horizontally and sponged Pale Tomato ink (I think!) over it. Before inking, I blocked off a spot on the cardstock to place my sentiment later. After inking the background, I put some bridal embossing powder on top (it is a clear ep with glitter in it...the glitter was all over the place!) and heat embossed it. It shimmers so nicely! I added the sentiment and created the rolled gardenia flower and leaves from felt. I also added a pearl to the center of the flower and some floral pins, to which I added more pearls to match. Love the colors!
So while I was creating the card above, I made a mistake. I forgot to block off the cardstock for the sentiment. I was going to toss it, but took another look at it. Debby Hughes had a tutorial that looked something like this, so I created a card based on hers. I cut a tag shape using a Spellbinder's die from vellum. The sentiment and flourish on the bottom was embossed with white ep. I added the bow die so I had somewhere to attach the vellum to the card. This is going to my niece who just made the Dean's List!
Thanks for stopping by!
