Back to the stamp drawers today to ink up a few that haven't seen much use
Card stock - scraps for stamping
Stamps (sorry, this stamp set is retired)
ink (Going Gray was used in this project - retired)
Spectrum Noir Markers (IB1, IB3)
Stampin' Up! Classic Markers (Not Quite Navy and Tempting Turquoise - retired)
Glitter (Yellow - Oriental Trading)
I knew I was going to fussy cut the focal image, so I just pulled some white card from the scrap box. Using the Going Gray stamp pad, I stamped several images since I knew I would be making several cards.
I was really happy to be able to use the ebrush to add some color to the stamped images. I cut each of them out and set aside and prepared to color the card base using the ebrush.
I used spectrum noir's IB1 and IB3 to add color, laying from light to dark around the edges of the front of the card base. Cutting another piece of plain white stock at 4" x 5.25"
I stamped the sentiment about 1/3 of the way down from the top. I used the blue marker to ink up the sentiment stamp and stamped. I stamped again slightly to the left and down a bit for a shadowed effect using the turquoise marker.
Once the stamping was completed, I adhered the white stock to the card base. Adhered the light bulb and then to add a little more pop, I stamped another image of the light bulb on some scrap stock and fussy cut the heart. Added a pop up dot to the back, but left the backing on. On the front of the heart image, I applied a layer of glue and generously sprinkled some yellow glitter on the heart. Once that was dry, I shook off the excess glitter and removed the backing from the pop dot and applied to the bulb previously adhered to the white stock.
You can decide on what to do to complete the inside. I generally leave my cards blank so they can be personalized when needed.
Join me next week for another quick project...Thanks for dropping by! Hope to see you again soon.
