Using the Rays of Light Background Stamp

Hello Everyone,

Today I thought I would show you how you can use the Rays of Light background stamp with the Stamparatus tool.

In this example I used Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Starry Sky and Night of Navy inks.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The Stamparatus made it easy to layer the colours and add the versamark ink!

This sample used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler inks.

Why not try stamping onto patterned paper or an ink blended background?

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Inspire.Create.Challenges #123 – Sketch Challenge with Dragonfly Garden

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog today sharing with you my design team project for the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog!

Our challenge this time is to use this card sketch.

See the other design team creations HERE

I chose to use some ink blending to create the vertical panel.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…..

This colour combo reminds of a sunset on a summer’s evening!

The black layer ties the embossing and sentiment together.

This card takes on a completely different look by using these deeper colours. White embossing would look good too!

Shaded Summer Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

We are into the last few days of Sale-a-bration so I wanted to use the Summer Shadows dies again.

This time I’m using them alongside the metallic speciality papers and the Encircled in Beauty dies.

The coloured embossing worked out so well. It really helped to keep the coordinated look of the original black and gold design.

The different colour ways give the cards a completely different feel!

The black and gold is very striking and the gold shimmer ribbon looks fabulous!

Beautiful World Gatefold Card

Hello Everyone,

Today’s card had a more masculine feel and features the Beautiful World bundle and coordinating designer series paper.

To make the gatefold card base, cut the card stock lengthways at 5-7/8 inches and trim down to 8-1/2 long.

Score at 2-1/8 on both ends of the cardstock, fold and burnish really well.

The left over pieces can be used to make the topper which can be sized as you want.

Cut the DSP at 5-3/4 inches, turn and cut pieces at 2, 4 and 2 inches. These will fit the front panels and inside.

See how I put the rest of the card together in my video tutorial…..

I added a white panel inside the card to write a message.

These papers are really pretty with the brass foil!

My original sample was made with the opposite side of the paper and Basic Black cardstock.

Have you shopped the sale yet?

I hope you enjoyed this project.
