The card featured in today’s video was shared on my blog last Wednesday, and I was requested if I’d show how I made it! I’m always happy to accept requests, but I was particularly happy to accept this one! Why? Because it gave me the opportunity to correct three areas I wasn’t happy with my original card! These are the embossing on the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper (DSP), the colour on the gifts was too pale, and re-decorate the inside of the card.
I’m so much happier with my take-two card, largely because I have been able to make the colours of the gifts far more intense. This was achieved by using my Stamparatus to stamp the gifts. I re-decorated the inside of the card by copying the bottom section of the front of the card, and as far as the embossing is concerned, I embossed the Very Vanilla Cardstock (CS) layer before adhering the Toile Tidings DSP.
When using my Stamparatus, I prefer to use small ink spots rather than full-size ink pads. Uninked Stampin’ Spots (141822) can be found on page 180 in the Annual Catalogue, and they come in a pack of 5. During the video, I showed one of two boxes I’ve made to store my ink pads, plus the Velcro daubers I use to hold the ink spots. This is the link for video no. 346 Stamparatus: Ink Spot Storage & Much More.
I wish you a very blessed Sunday and look forward to being back with you tomorrow. In the meantime, happy crafting.
