Just one more day to post assignments to Online Card Classes Summer Camp 2 Class! This card turned out a little differently than what I had planned, but I like it.
I used stamps from three different sets. The background “hello” talk bubble stamp is from Pink Paislee’s Portfolio set in a pink pigment ink from Martha Stewart. Per the instructor’s example, I created a 4″ x 3″ mask from scratch paper over the card front. I stamped “hello” multiple times, being sure to overlap and vary the positioning. When I removed the mask, it left a nice white border around the edges.
On a separate piece of white card stock, I stamped a typewriter from Mama Elephant’s Type it set in Gold Delicata pigment ink. I cut it out and used foam squares to adhere it over the pink stamps.
Toward the bottom of the card, I adhered two strips of subtly patterned pink paper from American Craft’s Hip Hip Hooray pad. I cut the smaller strip into a banner end and stamped a Hero Arts sentiment, “You’re One of My Nicest Thoughts,” in Versafine brown ink.
As a final touch, I heat embossed a small wood heart from Studio Calico with Versamark embossing ink and Recollections gold glitter embossing powder. To ensure good coverage, I embossed it three times, dipping each layer back into the embossing ink and powder after using my heating tool.
I love the feminine combination of pink and gold. This card will go to a former colleague who is a grant writer for a non-profit organization. I think she will enjoy the gold typewriter; after all, her carefully chosen words can bring riches for a wonderful cause!
Please tell me what you think. I appreciate your feedback!
