Simon Says Stamp's challenge today was to use a big stamp. The biggest stamp I have is a polka dot background stamp. I decided to stamp the polka dots in Versa Mark and emboss them with clear powder on this blue shimmery paper. I love how it turns out- it looks like water droplets. Then, I drew a curved line and cut it out, and then repeated that curve on black, just to give it a more defined edge.
The bottom half I stamped with a dotted border stamp. I finished it off with some bright yellow-green ribbon, and a fun sentiment.
This next card I made for Avery Elle. Their challenge is to use these colors:
I searched through all my papers to find colors that closely matched and this is what I came up with.
I started with my blue papers, drew a curve, and cut them out (seems to be a theme with me right now). Then I found the big heart die that I had cut out a while ago and it just seemed to fit perfectly on the card. I stamped on it using Avery Elle's "Oh, Baby!" stamp set, and also used some stickers for the word "baby".
FYI: I have been asked if this is some kind of announcement, and I just want to clear the air here. ITS NOT.
The top portion of the card I dry embossed to give it some more texture. I like how it turned out!
Onto the last card of today! This one I made for Mojo Monday. I started using their card sketch and I think I veered off course a little, and came up with this.
I stamped a number of birthday sentiments on the side with Versa Mark ink, just to leave a subtle watermark look. Then, I found some coordinating patterned paper for the other side. The stars were stamped and fussy-cut, and I stamped and clear embossed the sentiment.
Kinda simple but I think it turned out pretty cute. I could see it being sent to either a boy or a girl.
