Well we did it. We are going all in with the Cardmaking and blogging. We revamped the blog theme and have taken the time to set things up correctly. A very big THANK YOU! to Debby Hughes of Lime Doodle Design. She posted information that I had been wanting to find out more but just didn’t know where to start.
I had time on my hands while watching the last MAGA rally last night so I made some more cards for Ms. Carolyn. I now have 7 down and 5 more to go.
These were really fun to make. I dropped Ranger Tim Holtz Inks in Stream, Sunshine Yellow and Sunset Orange onto some Yupo white paper. I made sure all of the white was covered then allowed it to set. I took the Sketched Flowers Stamp set and stamped it in Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift ink and tamped it on top of the alcohol inked cards. After that set for a few, I used a paper towel and rubbed the residue off the top of them. These were then matted onto Simon Says Stamp Burnt Orange and Peacock Teal cardstock.
She needs 12 cards with thank you, sympathy and get well. She wants varied colors to go across many seasons. This is a challenge to myself to keep everything different. Have made 1 each of sympathy and thank you. I can’t wait to see what else I do. All of the cards I’m making will be for donations to my ministry projects. I’m not keeping any of them.
My first card I stamped the leaves with VersaMark ink and heat embossed clear embossing powder. I then took Ranger Distress Oxide inks in Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade and rubbed them on the Ivory SSS cardstock cut in an embossed resist technique. This was adhered to a piece of black cardstock then attached to a Basic Gray card base. I stamped the sentiment in VersaFine black ink.
The Family is everything words I first stamped in Basic Grey then stamped over it again with Pear Pizzaz inks. It is adhered to a piece of Basic Grey cardstock then popped up on the card with dimensionals. The leaves were stamped in VersaMark in then I put black embossing powder was heated. The cardstock was then matted on Pear Pizzaz cardstock with a Basic Gray base.
With my last card, I heat embossed the leaves with VersaMark ink and Early Espresso embossing powder and adhered to the Early Espresso card base. The sentiment is was stamped in Early Espresso ink and then adhered to Early Espresso cardstock. I then popped it up with dimensionals.
