Cards to Share

I have been playing with some of my new stamps (and new 2nd hand stamps) and these are the cards I created.
As always, you can click on the images for an enlarged view.

Urban Prairie Card
Products used:
(please note that all links will take you to Little Scrapbook Shop)
~ Basic Grey Clear Stamps Urban Prairie, Wild FLowers
~ Acrylic Block
~ Stazon Inkpad Jet Black
~ Basic Grey 6x6 pad Urban Prairie
(the papers in these books are the ideal size for
cardmaking and for matting photos on layouts!)

~ Bazzill basics cardstock (beige)
~ KaiserCraft Round Gems
~ Adhesives - mounting foam, double sided tape
Other - rub-ons from stash, ribbon, square card, water-based markers

Techniques

The coloured image was created by colouring in the stamp with water
-based markers, then "huffing" on the stamp to moisten the ink again. It was then stamped straight onto the back of the Bazzill card (flat surface).

All edges are distressed with the inkpad to 'dirty' them up a bit.

Just Because Card
Products used:
~ Butterfly Stamp (Anita's stamps)
~ Basic Grey 6x6 pad Urban Prairie
(the papers in these books are the ideal size for
cardmaking and for matting photos on layouts!)

~ KaiserCraft Round Gems
~ Adhesives - Pritt Power Gel, double sided tape,
Glossy Accents (dimensional medium)
Other - rub-on's from stash

Techniques

The butterfly image was stamped onto the pink paper, then I cut away all the background with a scalpel. I then stamped the image onto various pages from the 6x6 book, then cut out and paper pieced the images onto the pink square. I adhered the round gems to the centres of the flowers, then added a layer of Glossy Accents to the flower petals and the butterfly bodies and parts of their wings.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
Have a great day,

Deanne
