A Fabulous Friend
We are loving Crafter's Companions embossing folders and stamps sets! See what Denise created today!
you believe that it is May already? Since it is May, that means that
we have a new sponsor that we are highlighting this month and this month
we have….Crafter’s Companion! For my card today, I used their Love Letters stamp set and one of their brand new Die’sire Embossing Folder.
have to tell you that on the day that I sat down to do this card,
nothing seems to be speaking to me. So, when that happens, I push
myself to think outside the box and to look at alternative things that I
can do with the supplies on hand.
get started, I grabbed a piece of watercolor paper and started
spritizing it with all sorts of spray inks in shades of yellow, orange,
and green. Once that was all dry, I tapped the paper in some of the
pooled ink that was sitting on my non stick craft sheet and dried those
too to get a splotchy effect. Then I started stamping.
you see this stamping that I did….well that was with a chandelier stamp
from the Love Letters stamp set. I did some generational stamping by
inking once for every 3 times that I stamped and created these kind of
crazy borders that make me think of the ikat trend happening right now.
stamping both of the border, I took my Regal Damask embossing folder
and inked it up with some Olive ink and ran it through my eBosser. The
achieved look is very subtle, but really adds some dimension at the same
this background that I created was so unique, I did not want to put a
lot of top of it, so I added a small label die and added the sentiment
from the Love Letters stamp set with a few black rhinestones and I was
though this card did not come easy for me, I have to say that I love it
and can definitely see myself making this again switching up the colors
and having so much fun doing it!
