Hi there, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Today’s card features the Stripes & Sayings stamp set, and a die cut from the Lovely Blossoms die set, both from Concord & 9th’s July release.
I started by placing the striped background step into the middle of a Misti stamping tool. Then, I temporarily adhered an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White #80 Classic Crest cardstock to a scrap piece of cardstock cut to the same size. I adhered it at an angle, ensuring that the striped background stamp would still stamp across the entire panel. Adhering it to the scrap cardstock ensured that I could slide my card front up and down at a consistent angle so that I could stamp twice, completely covering the panel in evenly spaced stripes.
I inked up the stamp with Altenew Buttercream ink and stamped the bottom half of the panel. Then I cleaned off the stamp, moved my panel down a bit, lined up the stripes that I’d just stamped, and then inked and stamped again. This gave me a full panel of stripes.
Then, using the dashed lines stamp from the set, I stamped between each stripe in Altenew Sunkissed ink. I used this same ink, and a large solid stamp, to create a rectangle of matching cardstock. I put together a few sentiments from the stamp set (masking off part of the “you’re” stamp to create “you”) and heat embossed them using VersaMark ink and Hero Arts white embossing powder. I also masked off part of the hearts stamp to heat emboss just four hearts above and below the sentiment. I trimmed the rectangle and then backed it with a slightly larger rectangle of white cardstock.
I die cut a thin hexagon from the Lovely Blossoms die set and adhered it flush to the striped background, trimming off the part that hung off the right side. Then I used foam tape to adhere the sentiment. To finish the card, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.
Thank you so much for visiting!
