I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
is to create a card with just stamps and cardstock- no punches, dies, designer paper, embellishments or ribbon! Since I am so used to using all of my “tools” (the Big Shot, embossing folders, ribbon, punches, brads, etc.) this was a definitely a challenge!
I decided to combine the JAI61 challenge with three others- the colors from this week’s ColourQ CQC77 Challenge (see http://colourq.blogspot .com ),
Use a brayer and apply Bashful Blue onto Whisper White followed by Kiwi Kiss and Bermuda Bay in a random pattern.Next, stamp the background stamp, En Francais with Bashful Blue over the brayered background.
Next, stamp the floral image from Elements of Style with Concord Crush and sponge the edges with Concord Crush and Bermuda Bay. Mount onto Concord Crush and Kiwi Kiss.
Stamp En Francais with Bashful Blue onto Whisper White, tear the bottom edge by hand and stamp the sentiment from Sincere Salutations in Concord Crush. Using Sponge Daubers, apply ink to the edges and over the center area with Bermuda Bay and Kiwi Kiss to tone down the Whisper White, sponge the edges with Concord Crush and Bermuda Bay.
Stamp Sets: En Francais, Elements of Style, Sincere Salutations Ink: Bashful Blue, Concord Crush, Bermuda Bay and Kiwi Kiss Cardstock: Whisper White, Concord Crush, Kiwi Kiss Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Brayer
I hope you like this card- I did have fun getting back to basics but I am not ready to give up my ribbon and Big Shot yet.
