Stamping Flowers on Glossy Cardstock

Howdy! How’s it going today? Here it is cold and rainy.

This is another one of those I did the panel stamping some time ago and it finally made it to a card. I used a flower stamp to stamp on glossy paper which is very hard to tell in the photo. I think I colored the stamp with markers and stamped each flower. Then I mounted the panel on black and die cut a couple layers of the sentiment and glued those together and then added it to the card. Simple but I really like the result.

Supplies:

  • Honey Bee Stamps Large Thanks die
  • Judikins Mod Mum stamp

Almost Merry Monday Blue Bird

Christmas Red Bird

After making the blue card I liked it a lot and decided to make a red version. I used a different stencil for the background and added red glitter to the embossing paste. The stencil is a Memory Box stencil called Tiny Snowflakes (88583).

Almost Merry Monday Blue Bird

Merry Monday’s theme this week was a tag on a card with texture, bling and die cuts.

Well I finally got it together to make a card for Merry Monday at the last hour, which I haven’t done in quite awhile. That was all great and I was running on time. But then.. when I went to post it I remembered I forgot one element of the theme. Um where’s the tag on my card? Does that ever happen to you? Darn it. The good news is I really like the card and I got a Christmas card done.┬áSo the inspiration for this card was the Merry Monday Challenge for this past week.

The background – A Memory Box stencil called Large Snowflakes (88586). Embossing paste with ink added.

Frame – Simon Says Stamp die Holiday Frames (SSSD111393) cut out of the nice DCWV Glitzy Glitter paper. I love the smooth texture of this paper. It is a challenge somewhat though to cut out things with dies. The backing is thick so you have to work to get the small pieces out. I even rolled it through the Grand Calibur more than once and added a paper shim. I did get there though.

The bird is a stamp by Judikins called Whats Up Chickadee that I got a few months ago and finally used. I colored it with Copics and went over that with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.

So as you can see I have the bling, a die cut and the texture on the background. Oops no tag…
