Hello and welcome back to my blog! It’s been a very busy couple of weeks in my household. Two of my kids had their birthdays only 2 days apart so it was pretty full on with lots of excitement and cake of course!
For Miss 6 turning 7, I created a card using the Magical Mermaid stamp set because let’s face it, what 7 year old doesn’t love Mermaids!
To make this card, I used the versamark ink with the copper embossing powder for the mermaid and the sentiment. I then created a mask to place over the mermaid. To create a mask it is quite simple, you just stamp the mermaid onto some sticky note paper, cut the mermaid out then place the sticky note mask over the mermaid. Once in place, ink up your background stamp and stamp over your cardstock. Then peel away the mask and it will reveal your original stamped image of the mermaid with the illusion of the background stamp right where is should be…in the background.
I used Night of Navy ink to stamp some underwater reeds in the background to give the card a more realistic look.
The sentiment was cut out using the stitched framelit dies and a layering circle die. Before mounting onto dimensionals I added some copper trim for extra decoration.
Miss 7 liked her card and proudly displays it in her room, her messy room I might add!
Master 3 turning 4, I created an Eclipse card, using the No Bones About It stamp set.
I love the Eclipse Card technique where the letters pop out from your card. This type of card is so simple to make and looks awesome too!
To create this card, just stamp your image onto some whisper white cardstock. Use the Alphabet letter dies to cut out your word. Assemble your card and use Stampin’ Dimensionals to make the letters “pop”.
Making your own personalised cards is so much fun! To learn how to make your own cards I can run various classes to show you how! It’s a fun thing to do plus it’s even better with friends! Please get in touch with me if a class interests you!
That’s all from me for today. Enjoy the weekend.
