A few weeks ago, I went to Olympia Washington to visit some good stamping friends, and to share my testimony at a Respect Life event. We spent Sunday afternoon doing a lot of stamping, making a big mess! I brought some Night of Navy card stock with me to make some Christmas cards, but I created these instead to showoff some of the newer stamp sets! Gotta entice my friends to shop, right?
The first card was a quick...really quick...attempt at a brayered sky. Hmmm...my full moon is, well,blurred. But I love the silhouette images from Just Believe! I used a baja breeze card base and whisper white layer. The sky is baja breeze, not quite navy, and night of navy. The image is stamped in black, and I sponged some black on the bottom. The sentiment is stamped in not quite navy, punched out with the large oval punch. Silver brads, and non-SU ribbon were added to finish it off.
The next card uses the same colors, and the same stamp set...but the circle image gives a completely different look! I rounded my corners, so that it went well with the ovals and circles.
The final card was really fun to make! I pulled out the large medallion from Day of Gratitude. Instead of stamping in autumn colors, I decided to make a snowflake-type card. I inked up the stamp with retired Soft Sky, then "thumped" a Marina Mist marker over it...neat effect! Note the single rhinestone in the center. I layered it with Marina Mist dsp, and added some non-SU ribbon.
By the way...I have lots of ribbon. But my friend Kelly has even more...Far More!!!
