Looking For You Card

As I was making this (admittedly, SUBDUED) card, I thought of all of the bright color combinations that would be fabulous for it. Luckily, this stamp set has lots of sentiments, so you may see another version of this in the near future.

Each frame is double layered (navy over black, pattern over royal). The hearts in the background were blended through a stencil.

Supplies:  Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – KaiserCraft Havana Nights, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Hickory Smoke, VersaFine Clair Twilight, dies – My Favorite Things, stencil – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


You Are My Anchor Card

Recently, Simon Says Stamp was giving away the Gina K. Designs mini wreath builder template and stamp set with ANY order. So, I went scouring for a mini stamp set and die (less than $10 total). I wound up with this Waffle Flower set (I already own multiple anchor stamps/dies, but no sentiments that coordinate with an anchor). Great! AND I dug up a $5 coupon, which helped with shipping.

I blended distress inks over a stencil onto Strathmore Bristol paper – so smooth for blending.

Supplies: Stamps – Waffle Flower, paper – Curious Metallics Shadow, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Strathmore Bristol, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), Waffle Flower (anchor), stencil – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, floss – DMC.


A Friend Like You Card

This is another great sentiment from Gina K. Designs.

I am not sure how I embossed the background (it was in my scrap folder) – I think I stamped in Deep Lagoon and then embossed with Silver Pearl powder.

Supplies: Stamps – Gina K. Designs, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – VersaFine Deep Lagoon, Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powders – Ranger Silver Pearl, Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.


Labrador Favorite Human Card

This sentiment was included in the Gina K. Designs stamp set that came with the wreath builder templates.

Supplies: Stamps – Gina K Designs, Taylored Expressions, paper – Crate Paper Fa La La, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pacific Point, inks – Copic B24, E33, R21, R29, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders (square), Taylored Expressions (dog), embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
