Try Stampin' On Tuesday ~ Challenge #564

Hoping your summer so far hasn't been too hectic for you and that you're finding time to craft at your craft table. I love spending time playing with paper. It makes me so happy!

We have a new challenge at Try Stampin' On Tuesday

I pushed myself to use both the sketch and the inspiration phrase "SHINE". Here's my card

I started with Unity Stamps' Glowing & Beautiful stamp set, 140 lb Strathmore watercolor paper and Versafine Onyx black ink. I made sure that the ink had dried before watercoloring. I added the yellow using Mustard Seed distress ink, applied with a water brush. The actual stamp was a bit too large for the black circle, so I fussy cut the bulbs out and adhered it to the black circle, die cut with a Sizzix circle die. I found some patterned paper that went with the yellow of the bulbs. For the sentiment, I used two different stamp sets (one word from each), The Alley Way - an unnamed stamp set and Craftin' Desert Diva's Treasure Trolls stamp set stamped with Versafine Onyx black ink on a strip of yellow cardstock. I adhered everything to a light gray A2 card panel which was then glued to a white A2 card base to complete the card.

We'd love to see your creations in our gallery.

  2. Sue, cute card with the lightbulbs being your "shine" theme! I love Versafine Tuxedo Black ink... it gives such sharp deep black images! Great inspiration for our TSOT friends!!! -Donna
