When I made my card for Patti, my downline, I loved how the Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather colors looked with the color white. So, when I began designing cards for Stamp Camp I knew I wanted to make a card with those colors. I had a customer request anniversary cards for one of our cards this month and I thought this card was perfect for that.
I used the Healing Hugs and Itty Bitty Greetings stamp sets and the Tufted embossing folder. The Healing Hugs stamp set is one of the DistINKtive stamps. These stamps are a little different than our normal stamps in that they are totally flat. You stamp them the same way as all of our other stamps, but they give you all the different lays of color. This stamped image is absolutely beautiful.
I did learn a trick with these stamps to get a great image. This is one time I was glad I was interrupted. I had been struggling with getting the perfect image and was ready to give up. I had inked up my stamp one more time when Mark came down to my stampin studio to ask me a question. It wasn't maybe 15-20 seconds later that I stamped the image and guess what? It came out perfect! So, when you ink up your stamp flip it over and you will see the little bubbles pop, wait maybe 15 seconds, and then stamp your image. It is so much prettier when you do this than when you stamp immediately after inking up your stamp.
To make this project you will need the following products:
Whisper White Thick
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
- cut at 1" x 4"
- cut at 2 1/2" x 4" for the flower and leaves
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
I cut out the flower and leaves with the awesome Paper Snips and colored the flower with Wink of Stella.
Today is a sad day as we are heading back home from our week long vacation at Disney. I can't wait to share with you some of the highlights. I know we are going to be totally exhausted, but it is a good exhausted. If you get a chance I would love it if you could say a prayer for all of us traveling. Erica will be traveling again by herself. It will be hard to say good bye, especially since her flight is earlier than ours. She will have to go to the airport by herself, which is going to be so hard. Thank you for your prayers!
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
