Well, I finally was able to take pictures of some of the cards I made during my Scrappers Weekend. I was going to take the pictures much earlier, but the battery was dead so I had to wait until it finished recharging.
Here’s one for a cat lover. I used the Cool Cat stamp set by Stampin’ Up along with assorted other stamps. I used a Versa Mark stamp pad and black embossing powder, which was then heated to create raised glossy black images. I painted the cat’s eyes & ears.
I tried using a glittery gold stamp pad to stamp the swirling pattern, but it wasn’t as shiny as I thought it would be so I painted over it with paint and a gold gel pen. The stamp set I used was the Love Life set by Close To My Heart.
The Bee Happy stamp set is a really cute set by Close To My Heart. I used glitter paint to colour the bees and bee hive, cut each bee out and used pop-up tape to raise them off the card.
I decided to use a split front card and attached the embossed butterfly to one side. The flowers are rub-ons that I painted with my glitter paint. The lacy section inside the card is actually made with a clear acrylic stamp in a lace design. The flower pattern was stamped and then hand-painted.
That’s all I’ll show you tonight. There are some special ones that I’m giving as a gift and don’t want to spoil the surprise, so I will leave them for another time. Hope you all have a good night! 🙂
