Running a little behind today. This is a card I made to send to my cousin. I just got this quilted embossing folder from Stampin' Up. Today my choice for cardstock was mainly linen. The base is Bluestone Linen. The quilted layer is Baronial Ivory Linen. Finally the sentiment is Basis Light Yellow.
This card is a corner Pop Up Card. I love the look. The middle left panel is a little crooked. Sorry about that. I have to see if I can fix that before mailing.
This is a card I made for the grandson of one of my friends. He is five and has stage 2 cancer. I have been trying to send cards once in a while. This card is cute but rather difficult to take pictures of. I thought it was cool because the inside pops out. It is called a twist and pop card. I found the directions on Y-tube.
The base for this card is something I had because it had to be 12 inches. All the rest of the cardstock came from the Basis Package. The colors used are Light Yellow, Orange, Teal, Dark Orange, Gold, Orange and Light Blue. You have to love this line of cardstock because it comes in so many colors. These trucks are just perfect for little boys. . I have two stamp sets and they came from http://flonzcraft.com/
I have had this stamp for a while. I just did not know what I wanted to do with it. I finally decided to stamp it and cut it out. I am in love with the Misti stamp positioner! It gives me the opportunity to stamp the image as many times as I want until I get the definition I am looking for.
The base and dark layer in this card is Emerald Green Classic Linen. The Linen has a beautiful texture to it.
The embossed layer is Serpentine Mica/ Metallic. On the Serpentine layer I embossed the music. I then added some distress ink to highlight the image.
The white layer and stamped image are Cryogen White. Cryogen is always my go to to stamp my images on.
The image was stamped again on Cryogen White. I colored the image with copic markers. The image was placed on Baronial Ivory classic linen. Again the stencil of rays was used. I sponged around the edge for some highlight. Blessings was stamped in the corner in a dark pink.
The sentiment and die cut pink piece are from Pink Basis. I was going for the pretty pastel summery look.
The yellow die cut is from Banana Split Pop Tones. The background piece with the polka dots is Light Green Basis (sorry but this is no longer available). The cryogen with the little bit of shimmer would work well here. The accent leaves are from Limeade Pop Tones.
Finally the colored image is done on Cryogen White. The cryogen is always the cardstock I go to for coloring an image. I colored the image with Ranger distress crayons and then used a water brush to spread
