Beautiful Friendship

These are SIP cards with such a versatile stamp set!! And it's just gorgeous, how can you not love it? Oh, what's a SIP card you ask? Stamp, Ink, Paper. Super simple right? Plus, this stamp set is just $22.00.

I love the freedom of just composing floral designs. I don't have to worry about any fancy fold, elaborate layout, use of dies or embossing folders, just SIP. It's so MUCH FUN I tell you!

The first card uses Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick and Granny Apple Green. To make the edges of a few petals a different shade, I stamped the roses in Daffodil Delight, then I used a sponge dauber in some Lovely Lipstick and very lightly sponged a bit right on the stamp, then stamped it on the paper.

The second card has the same stamping layout as one in the previous post, but with the lovely Garden DSP instead of a blue layer.

The third card was done wiht Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, and Grapefruit Gove.

The fourth card has lots of color right? Cardstock layers are Real Red and Gorgeous Grape, inks are: Real Red, Garden Green, Crushed Curry, and Gorgeous Grape.

The last card uses Blackberry Bliss, Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzaz inks, White and Melon Mambo cardstock.

New Wonders

This stamp set is available with Hostess bonus points on an order of $150 minimum. I've had so much fun with it! I just love that cute little fairy:)

On the first card I used the fairy's face as the center of a daisy, then simply popped it on with a couple dimensionals. The back ground is the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper, Isn't it just the cutest?

The second card involved some fussy cutting. and some extra leaves.

Subtle Resist

I've done emboss resist for years, but this is new twist. It's called Subtle Resist and requires no embossing powder. In this example I used the Crackle stamp and Versamark ink. I used my Stamparatus, so that I could stamp twice and get a good thick application of the Versamark. After stamping, I heat set with my heat tool, making sure no shine from the ink was left on the paper. Then I used sponges and a sponge brayer to apply inks over top. It leaves a very suble crackle on the background. I layered the colors over one another where they touched to get a good blended effect.
