really pleased to be able to report that yesterday I successfully
stamped sixty wedding invitations using a replacement stamp!
And oh boy!
what a difference that stamp made!
It wasn’t messy and it produced good
clean images time after time after time!
If only I had started with
that stamp at the beginning, I’d be at the stage of fixing the inserts.
card is another Beautiful You idea and uses the Hearth & Home
I saw a glimpse of this idea when it could be seen behind
another project that was being featured on a Facebook Page for Stampin’
What I could see of the idea, it looked as if the image had
been stamped directly onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock (CS).
wanted to have something in the background that looked like wallpaper,
so I stamped the image using our Archival Basic Black Ink onto a piece
of Smokey Slate CS, and then stamped it again on a Post It note.
this one out and used it as a mask, so I was able to stamp the square
design stamp which is from the Timeless Textures Stamp Set.
I stamped it
third generation using Smokey Slate Ink.
Unfortunately, I think it
looks more like railings rather than an indoor background, but never
mind, I’m happy because it’s not a plain background!
stamped the image again on a piece of the stripe design from the
Subtles Collection Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack.
cutting it, I very gently coloured over the white stripes using the
Basic Grey Watercolour Pencil.
I left the colouring as it was i.e. I
didn’t go over it with a Blender Pen or an AquaPainter.
I used the
Calypso Coral pencil to colour the flesh areas.
I die cut the window
using Basic Grey CS and adhered it over the image.
used a card base in Basic Grey CS, then a layer of Whisper White CS and
a top layer of a relatively plain pattern in Blushing Bride colour from
the Blooms & Bliss DSP.
I adhered the three together using Tombow
and adhered the window on top.
Using Smokey Slate CS and Blushing Bride
CS, I die cut two flowers from the Botanical Builder Framelits and
adhered the pink onto the grey.
I took a strip of Smokey Slate CS, and
stamped the Thank You sentiment, which is from the Rose Wonder Stamp
Set, using Basic Grey Archival Ink.
I fishtailed the end using the
Triple Banner Punch.
I adhered this to the card front and then adhered
the flower on top of the left hand side.
the card I adhered a layer of Blushing Bride CS, and then a layer of
Whisper White CS.
I had already stamped the image using Archival Basic
Black Ink on Whisper White CS, and decorated it in the same way as I did
for the front of the card.
That’s about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.

I like this card. Even the background.
Hi, Ina. Although the background wasn't quite what I'd planned, it's better than leaving it plain! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB
