CARDS, CARDS, and a BAG!!
I am convinced that adding new addictions to my life only makes me a better scrapper... LOL Here are the cards I made for the store's stamping club:
This card has lots going on. I used Coredinations cardstock and embossed it to them reveal the red core by distressing the paper. I stamped the numbers on white cardstock and cut the edges with a designs scissors. I inked the edges with yellow chalk ink and colored in the stamp with Prismacolors. Finally I added Stickles, Glaze, and the Mark Richards Glitter Domes.
This was extremely easy but the outcome was great. I used ribbon as candles and just stamped the flame on top of the ribbon. I colored the falmes with Prisma Colors and added Stickles.
This card has the watermark effect on the blue cardstock and just regular coloring on the yellow cardstock. I stamped a cupcake on blue cardstock and on yellow cardstock. I cut the top of the cupcake from the yellow cardstock and I popped it. I then added the sprinkles and glazed it. Finally I added the candle.
This card was an interesting experiment. I used chalk ink to give a yellow tone to the white cardstock and then I stamped all of the cupcakes. To color in the cupcakes I used Prismacolors. Once I colored them, I used Marshmallow Glimmer Mist to give it a shimmery finish. Finally I stamped a cupcake onto a blue piece of cardstock, cut the top and popped it on top of the middle cupcake, along witht he candle.
Here is the matching bag using the same technique:
The technique for this month was learning how to make your own patterned paper using the stamps. I must admit that I was a bit skeptic about being able to accomplish the task, but once again the Lord helped me out... Praise HIM! :)
Hope you liked!
Love in Christ,
