I love you berry much!
Hey Crafty Friends,
Thanks for stopping by again today. I'm here to show you a very quick and simple card with just the use of a couple small stamps from a set alongside some sentiments. Our cards don't have to be complicated to create a great impact on the recipient! (click any image to view larger)
Starting with PaintON cardstock, this is a favourite of mine for ink blending! Using Candied Apple and Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink to create a 2 tone background. Take a spritz bottle and spray a small amount onto the inked background and dab dry with kitchen towel. React a small amount of ink on acetate with water and take a small paintbrush to create a speckle affect on top.
Now for some images, taking the berries stamps from Flowers & Berries stamp set and used the solid stamp first to create some colourful berries on the background, for this I used Memento Ink pads for quick drying purposes!
Next up I layered over the top of the solid berries the lined berry image and stamped using Versamark Ink, covered in Bright White WOW embossing powder and heat embossed.
You may have noticed that some of the embossing has melted together and that the colour I stamped underneath really doesn't pop as much as I imagined in my head, however that's ok as we don't always have to aim for perfection and giving a technique a go is always more fun than getting it right first time every time! There are also little tips and tricks to cover up the parts you may not like!
Keeping the rest of this card simple I took out some dies from my stash, starting with a banner die and cut this 4 times, twice from a orange card and twice from black card stock. Pop the black to the side and starting with the orange banners which is what the sentiment will be stamped on. Using a stamping platform to stamp with Memento Ink, I am splitting a sentiment from the new Crafty Purple Frog stamp set 'Spread your wings'. Partially stamping some of the stamp on the first banner and the other part of the stamp I needed on the 2nd banner. Now take your black banners and cut them in half, stick both ends to behind the orange with just a small black amount shown. This gives a great extra accent to your card!
To make the sentiment punny I knew I wanted the word Berry, taking out some stitched alphabet dies and cut the letters from Red and Black card stock. Layering the black slightly shadowed behind the red to make the letters pop. I love how it turned out, almost looks like the berries have burst over all the page!
I'm super excited to see what you all do with the new range! Until next time, Happy Crafting!
