Let Your Joys – Birdie

Hi! Thanks for visiting. Today I have a card inspired by Fusion’s Peacock Dynasty Sketch and Colors and by CASology’s cue word: Circles.

IMG_7597edited_edited-1I used some SU DSP (perfect for Fusion’s challenge), a stamp from PTI’s Choose Joy stamp set.

I decided to make the circle into a “window” by adding Glossy Accents. Here’s what it looks like now.

I had  hard time getting a nice shot of this, but it does look a pretty. It reminds me of old windows that I’ve seen.

Thanks for stopping by!

Make It Monday #224: Two-Toned Stamped Sentiments

Hi! Thanks for visiting Honeybeelane. PRIZE ALERT through 27 Sept! Make sure you read to the end of this post.

So! I’m here with a quick post for Make It Monday #224. This week Danielle’s showed us how to make a two-toned sentiment with stamps and dies.  Go here, to see her tips for this super fun technique!

Here are Danielle’s cards:

Here’s mine:  IMG_7541editedI stamped the sentiment in black ink on the red die cut. Then I stamped in VersaMark on the white cs and heat embossed in red. Next, I traced the sentiment in white and black. Lastly, I traced the entire sentiment in Glossy Accents. I’m not sure that I like the busyness of the 3 colors.

So, I think that I will try re-making this card with this technique, but next time I will use white embossing powder on the red card stock instead of black ink. I used PTI’s Heart Cover Plate Die and Graceful Greetings and Choose Joy stamps sets.
