Stamps and Stencils

This card turned out so much different than what the starting idea was.  The plan was to make a card with the four different pieces stamped.  This is a 6 x6 card.  A white cardstock was cut to 5.5 and then cut into two pieces.   Each of those pieces was then cut into two uneven pieces.  The Hero Arts "Dauber Bunch" was used to stamp the images.  The "Thanks a Bunch" sentiment was stamped with Archival black and then clear heat embossed.  Hero Arts inks were used for the stamped images.  (Hero Hues "latte", Hero Shadow "pool" and "green hills".  The next step was to distress the edge with Antique Linen.  This still needed something so the Memory Box stencil " Texture rings and puddles" was stamped with the Antique Linen  to add a background effect.  The stamped images were then mounted onto a dark blue that was cut a 1/4 inch larger than the stamped piece.  The final step was to mount all of the card pieces onto a base of green 6x6 paper.  This was a fun card to make.  Hope you enjoy.

  1. I really love this card. so well balanced. I like the greeting.. it looks different than when I black emboss a greeting. slightly faded to go with the card, but still striking. I have to go try this. lol. somehow I never have used clear embossing powder. no time like the present. very nice card!


Thank you for your comments. They are like hot cocoa in winter that makes you feel warm inside.
