I have some exciting news to share — I finally came up with a watermark!! You must be thinking that I’m crazy. Haha. I don’t know why I waited this long. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen this sneak peek of a few cards I made recently. When I’m crafting, my desk gets really messy so I figure I should make as many cards as I can before I need to clean up. I really don’t like messy desks. I’m going to share two of the cards today.
I love Altenew stamps. I used Hennah Elements and the Halftone Hello die for this card. That fabulous pattern paper? It’s from this paper pad. I LOVE IT.
I stamped the flowers on white cardstock with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it in gold. I used distress markers to color in the centers and left the outer petals white. I die-cut the word ‘hello’ using the larger die from a metallic gold cardstock and also double-sided foam sheets so that I didn’t have to struggle with adding tiny foam dots on the back. I added the flowers with foam tape and the word hello over the pattern paper. I added a few drops of Irresistible Pico Embellisher in Gold and Wedding Dress.
This card was inspired by Yana’s post here. She’s such a creative lady! I used Whimsical Flowers and Halftone Hello. Like Yana, I stamped the hello in the center so I could stamp the flowers around it. I stamped some of the solid flowers using WPlus9 inks. Then I stamped the outline stamp in VersaMark and heat embossed it in gold (no, seriously, obsessed with gold embossing! I might have to get more shades!)
I don’t know if you can see, but I stamped the ‘hello’ again in VersaMark and heat embossed it in clear to give it a shine. I die-cut the white cardstock using the scalloped outline die from Sunshine Layers and added it to a metallic gold cardstock. The white piece was added with foam tape – again, I love dimension! 😉
