Friendship Cards, Just Because Cards



Hi there!  I’m late with today’s post because I’m still recovering from an amazing day at Kathy Racoosin’s The Coloring Challenge Roadtrip event at Hero Arts yesterday.  It was an amazing seven-hour day of meeting and chatting with many lovely crafty new friends.

Today’s card uses the single panel that I finished coloring in those seven hours (did I mention the chatting?).  It features the Altenew Sweet Peas stamp set, and a sentiment from Altenew’s Crafty Life stamp set.

I started by hand-stamping several sweet peas images in Gina K. Designs Amalgam blank ink.  This was my first time using this ink and I was pleased with how juicy and black the ink is.  I found that I was able to confidently stamp with an acrylic block a single time to get a crisp deep black image, which is not always the case when I try to hand-stamp with other Copic-friendly inks.

When I got home from the event, I heat embossed the sentiment onto black Recollections cardstock using Hero Arts white embossing powder.  Then I used foam tape to adhere the sentiment to the card front.  To finish the card, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
