Hello there! Today I am spotlighting a thank you card I recently made for a friend. It is using a Hero Arts stamp set that I bought last fall (2017) but didn’t seem to have the best ink colors to make the stamp looks its best. However, this year I have wonderful Altenew inks that were perfect for making this layered sunflower. I hope you like it.
Here are the supplies I used:
Hero Arts Sunflowers and Gourds(MH0917C) Stamp & Die Set, Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Caramel Truffle, Rocky Shore, Espresso, Forest Glades, Evergreen, Our Daily Bread With Much Thanks Stamp Set, Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Peeled Paint, Stormy Sky, Gina K Designs Dye Ink: In The Navy, Honey Bee Stamps Outdoor Scene Builder Stencils, Neenah Solar White card stock #80, #110.
Happy Birthday Special Birthday Buddy
This special birthday card was created for my birthday buddy (we share the same date but I’m a cuzillian years older 🙂 ).
Here are the materials I used on this card:
Strathmore Watercolor card stock, Altenew Floral Art Stamp Set, Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Orange Cream, Sunkissed, Firebrick, Frayed Leaf, Altenew Watercolor Paints: Warm Sunshine, Fresh Lemon, Versafine Onyx Black Ink, Versamark Ink, Stampendous Detail Clear Embossing Powder, Lawn Fawn Simply “For You” Die, Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables, Black card stock, craft foam, Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins.
This is a special card I made for a friend that I work with. I enjoyed adding personal touches to the flowers with white brads and dotted the centers with a Copic detail marker. The vellum flowers were stamped then covered with Versamark ink and clear heat embossed to seal. I just love how it came out!
