Stamping off Stamps

Hello!

I made this card today using a technique that I call stamping off stamps. To do this you ink up a large background stamp, for this I used a striped stamp I created myself. Once it is inked up I used another stamp with a swirly design and stamped that onto the background stamp. This takes away the ink in that area from the background stamp.

Once I had done that onto my card base I added details with my white gel pen. I added some shine with some liquid pearls from Ranger and stamped and embossed the greeting together with some lines onto the card!

Hello!

 

Today I have created this card chow-casing a technique using distress inks. I really like distress inks since they are so versatile. I created that piece using Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Shaded Lilac and Shipped Sapphire distress inks. Once I had created that piece I die cut the Happy die from Simon Says Stamp and embossed it with some Black Sparkle embossing powder from Ranger. I then stamped the birthday stamp from the Happy stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. Next I adhered the water-coloured piece down using some foam squares and then the happy die cut to that. I also adhered an embossed balloon from the Birthday Balloons stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and a die cut balloon from the Balloons wafer thin dies from Simon Says Stamp. I drew the string and the card was done.

Hello!

Today I have created a One Layer Card. I did this by cutting out a mask and then stamping circles on to the card. I then embossed the large Happy Birthday stamp from the Birthday Balloons stamp set from Simon Says Stamp onto the masked area. Next I tied some ribbon around the card and it was done!

Hello!

This card features die cutting and heat embossing. I started out by die cutting the second larges balloon die from theĀ “Balloons” Wafer Thin Dies from Simon Says Stamp. Once I had done that I stamped one of the Happy Birthday stamps and the two balloons from the Birthday balloons stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I tied a bow around the bottom of the balloon and adhered it onto the card base.
