Today I would like to share with you a card using 2 stamp sets. During the month of March 2016 CTMH has stampaganza happening. When you purchase two stamp sets you will get a 3rd set Free.
For those who do not know me I will give you a little insight into my 3 fav things to do on projects. If there is a flower I love to emboss them, if there is a butterfly I love to lift the wings for the 3D look and the third is to create my own background/paper. Today I will show you a card that I have made and created my own background/paper.
I got inspired for this card by Pinterest. I saw an image there that used a stitch stamp and wanted to get a similar look.
To start with using tone on tone stamping, I have stamped the Princess wings scroll work and stars on the background card stock. On the two smaller white card stock I have stamped using Versamark ink. I did this so that I could still see the lines but would not be clearly visible on the finished product.
I have then paper pierced the stamped designs and the edge of the long white card stock. I did this free hand following the lines of the images. By piercing close together it allows the eye to follow the line and maintain the image. Yes this is a little bit fiddly but I actually found it quite relaxing to pierce the paper. (A bit of paper therapy for you). Here is a closer look at the piercing.
I have stamped the giraffe from Wild Wonders Stamp set with Pigment ink and then clear embossed it. This gives it the glossy sheen and makes it bright as the centre piece of the card. I have decorated it with ribbon and Gold Sequins. I have double mounted the card stock. I Quite liked the look of the different tones of pink in this card. I hope you liked the finished product.
If you would like to see another card using the same technique take a look at this post here.
