For this first one, I colored the stamp with SU! markers, stamped, and cut and embossed with an Oval Nestability. I put the Nestability back on and used Versamark on it, then used clear, thick embossing powder on it. I heated it, then put on another layer. It's matted with Stampin' Up!'s Always Artichoke. The sentiments for all three cards are from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Basics set, stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.The second card uses the same stamp for the main image. I cut it out with a Labels One Nestability. It's matted on Mauve Mist and black. I used a corner rounder and my Scor-Pal. The background is from an older SU! patterned paper in Almost Amethyst. I scored a couple lines on that, also, and used Certainly Celery ribbon.For this third card, I stamped the image on some blue cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black and cut it out with a Square Nestability. The black scalloped piece is also cut with a Nestability. I embossed the square on the card base with a larger die. I really love the sentiments in this Papertrey set!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
