Archive for August, 2010

Today, on our final day of August releases from Innovative Stamp Creations, I have two cards made with two of the sets released this week.  The first one is from  Nature Silhouettes  III.

Julie Warner - justwritedesigns https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/

For this card, I inked the spider lily with lapis and azalea inks, stamped it twice,  cut one out and die cut the other with a mega oval die.  After sponging a little ink around the edges, I attached the cut out lily on top of the base image. I traced this same die on navy paper and cut it out by hand in order to get the narrow mat. The white mat is the next largest oval die.

For the background, I placed a large flourish mask on my white card stock, stamped the ledger and several word images, then sponged on azalea ink. I stamped a few of the small butterflies and used one as mask. I placed this one in a couple of areas on the background, then sponged more ink over it. I added a corner punch and a white punched fence. The sentiment was punched with a multi size tag punch. Card measures 4.25 x 5.5 (A2).

Supplies:
stamps: ISC – Nature Silhouettes III
paper: Neenah white, navy
ink: Ancient Page azalea, lapis
accessories: corner punch (All Night Media), multi tag punch (McGill), flourish mask (Heidi Swapp), Spellbinders mega oval dies, Martha Stewart iron gate border punch

And this final card uses images from Sketch of Roses II.

My final card I started by stamping the large background with a dk plum ink onto watercolor paper.  I used various pink dye inks direct to paper (DTP) then misted it with water and distressed the edges. The rose image and greeting were stamped with Stazon onto a piece of acetate. On the back side, I used a white China marker to make the images stand out. I added a hint of color to the rose and leaves with markers (on top of the white China marker). It’s attached to a heavily distressed piece of purple card stock. I created the embossed background by inking the the grid embossing folder, misting a piece of white card stock, then placing it in the folder and embossing.  A bow was added and I glued a few beads onto a stick pin and attached it to the bow.  Card measures 5.5 x 4.25 (A2).

Supplies:
stamps: ISC Sketch of Roses II
paper: white, purple, water color, acetate
ink: Printworks (various pinks & purples), Stazon black
accessories: white China marker, green & pink Galaxy markers, beads, ribbon, stick pin, grid embossing folder (Sizzix/Tim Holtz)

Background Series: Ledger/Nature Silhouette III

Lately, have you noticed all the lovely Ledger design paper at your local stamp store? Well, now you can create a ton of lovely backgrounds on your cards and even in a mini book with this lovely Ledger image!

The Creative Architects were challenged to incorporate some of the images from both of these lines on our card. Moreover, Nature Silhouette III bodes well with Nature Silhouette I/II.

A little tip from Betsy: Use caution, but you can cut apart each of the images on the Hollyhock Shadow stamp and place them on your acrylic mount and arrange to your liking, then stamp away!

For my card, I white embossed the Hollyhock Shadow onto a large shipping tag then sponged on three colors of distress inks.  I tore the side and bottom of the tag and used scissors and ink to further distress them. A portion of a punched fence was also sponged and added to the bottom. The white layer was embossed with a grid pattern embossing folder (Tim Holtz/Sizzix line). I distressed the edges all around.  I used a ticket corner punch and some sheer tissue ticket tape to create the small ticket in the upper right and tucked it into a tiny white envelope. You can see more of this tape across the center of the card.

For the background, I white embossed the ledger then sponged on the distress inks as before. The little sentiment was also white embossed onto inked c/s and cut out.  The little butterfly was cut out and popped up with a little foam tape. Finished card measures 4.25 x 5.50 (A2).

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the entire Architect team. I know they’ll have wonders to behold!

Sketch of Roses III

Julie Warner - justwritedesigns https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/

Aren’t Roses utterly breathtaking? This stamp line has a lovely background image approx. size 4 ½ x 5 which lends itself to some many different tech’s, you’ll find this line quite versatile! The delicate Roses are so easy to color in with your fave medium of choice!

For my card, I stamped the large background onto white card stock. Just the section with the Rose wording was stamped again on a smaller piece.  I added just a hint of color to the leaves on the large one and used a circle die for the small one. I used a narrow red ribbon to add the loops around the edge and I attached a cardboard circle to the back to keep it all in place. There is a black labels 3 die cut under the circle, but it’s a little hard to see.

I stamped the big rose twice and the small rose once, colored them with a water brush and some dye reinkers then cut them out. A little shading was added with some markers. I used a stylus on the top two to add a little dimension then layered them on top of each other.  The sentiment was stamped with red and layered on a red scrap.  I made a little vellum envelope to tuck it into. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.50 (A2).

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to stop by all of the architect’s blogs. I know they’ll have some fabulous art to show you!
