Card set

I really enjoyed making this simple card set so I thought I would play around and make some more and here is what I came up with.

I used Kraft cardstock as my base for each card but used different embossing folders for a bit of variety. I added a strip of coloured cardstock across the middle of the card. The strips were all stamped with the same butterfly from the Colorful Companions set and with different sentiments.

Here are some closeups of the individual cards. Actually this first photo is the whole set tied together with a matching ribbon.



On the inside of each card I stamped the butterfly with Versamark just to give a tone on tone effect.
Cardstock: SU & A.C.
PP: A.C.
Stamps: myStampBOX (Colorful Companions, Mention it, Straightforward)
Ink: Versafine, Versamark
Punch: EK
Misc: ribbon, embossing folders

A Great Partnership!

For the next few days myStampBOX and Clearsnap are joining forces and creating with each others products. How fun!!!

I actually made 2 cards because I wanted to be able to play with more of the Clearsnap goodies. :)

On my first card I used the emboss resist technique using the Smooch Spritz.

Stamps: Abundant Blossoms, Mention it, Backgrounds
Clearsnap: Colorbox chalk and dye ink, Smooch Spritz
Cardstock: SU
Misc: button, Jillibean twine, Versamark, embossing powder

Here is a closeup. Love that glimmer!

On my second card I did a lot of sponging on the background with Chalk Inks and watercoloured my stamped leaves with the SMOOCH. Love the shine it gave them!

Stamps: Floating Leaves
Clearsnap: Smooch, Chalk Ink
Cardstock: SU & watercolour paper
Misc: unk ribbon, Memento ink

Here is a closeup.
