This is my second post today. Please click here if you are looking for my CASology post.
I had some crafty time today and I was lucky enough that my cards came together quickly, so I was able to make three cards today. First up is my card for this week's Retro Sketches rs#114, where my bestie Kim is Headliner all month (yay Kim!!).
I used three of the dies from PTI Sweet Speech to make this little Thank You card. I pulled out Memento Luxe inks in Rhubarb Stalk and Pear Tart for these stamps--the pigment really does give much better coverage with these stamps. I used Waltzingmouse Off Beat Backgrounds to stamp a plaid behind the die cut speech bubble.
I am also entering this card at Simon Says Monday: M, since my card uses a Make it Monday technique, One Layer Simplicity Challenge #5: Fabulous Flowers, and Less is More #171: One Layer Thank You.
My last card is also for Simon Says Monday: M, since my card uses a Memory Box Modern Flower Power stencil, One Layer Simplicity Challenge #5: Fabulous Flowers, and Less is More #171: One Layer Thank You. I decided to break out one of my new stencils and some new Distress Inks, too.
I masked off an area for the sentiment using a piece of computer paper cut with the Photo Finishers die. Then, I sponged Distress Inks (Dusty Concord, Shaded Lilac, Crushed Olive and Peacock Feathers) over the stencil and mask. I stamped the sentiment after removing the stencil and mask, and then put the die back over the sentiment area and embossed the die into the card. I was surprised how quick and easy stencils are to use. I will definitely do this again.
That's it for me today. Off to pull something together for dinner.
