The first card showcases a new (at least to my stamping group) technique. I used household bleach to stamp the flourish from Baroque Motifs onto chocolate chip cardstock. It bleached the cardstock out and looks almost like kraft in those areas. I had a lot of fun with this one.
|Stamps: autumn harvest, baroque motifs|
|Paper: chocolate chip, dusty durango, very vanilla|
|Ink: chocolate chip craft, pumpkin pie, dusty durango, more mustard, summer sun, old olive, garden green|
|Accessories: clear embossing powder, heat gun, blender pens, 5/8" chocolate chip grosgrain, distressing tool|
|Techniques: bleaching, distressing, heat embossing|
The second card is my take on the popular quilted top note card. It's a bit trickier than it looks. I had to use my 2 way glue pen to re-attach tiny slivers of paper from the edges.
|Stamps: holiday best|
|Paper: autumn meadows, rich razzleberry, very vanilla, soft suede|
|Ink: rich razzleberry|
|Accessories: big shot, top note die, wide oval punch, sponges, rich razzleberry polka dot ribbon, brads|
The last card is one I absolutely LOVE! I very rarely make a clean and simple card, but I would put this one into that category. I adore that flocked paper! It is gorgeous!!!
