Thinking of You

April 16th, 2012

Happy Monday! Did you have a good weekend?  We felt like ours went by entirely too fast, but it was good!  I held my monthly stamp class Friday night and had a full house.  It was tons of fun as always.  🙂  The first class project I want to share with you is a variation of a card I made for the TE release a couple of weeks ago.  I took that card and simplified it just a bit and changed up the colors and used different images from the same set – Make it Amazing.  This card is actually closer to the original inspiration card by CAKath that I have in my faves at SCS.  I just love the pink and yellow color palette!

We used my all-time favorite cardstock, SU Shimmery White, for this card.  I figure, if it’s only going to be one layer it should be the best!  I scored a line 1.5″ inches from the left side and used the wide Eclipse tape to mask off the right side of the card.  The dandelion image was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder for the Emboss Resist technique.  Then I sponged Daffodil Delight Ink, followed by Pretty in Pink.  The mask was removed and the dandelions were stamped in Daffodil (stamped off once first).  I used gray ink for the sentiment because black was a little too stroing with these soft colors. The girls in class chose any sentiment they wanted from the stamp set.  Lots of them made this a Mother’s Day card.  The bottom corners were rounded with my beloved Corner Chomper.  Ribbon is SU satin.

I just love this card and will be doing some similar ones in the near future!  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful week.
