Summer Card Camp: Week 3

Posted by on July 14, 2011 in Hero Arts, Love you cards, Stamping, Summer Card Camp | 12 comments

Hi there,

This week’s colour combo for the Online Summer Card Camp 2011 is this….and boy did I struggle! Brown and me are just not friends! Thank goodness there was some red and white in there as well!

I don’t mind the card I have made…but it should not have taken the time that it did….how many times can one shuffle pieces of paper around before settling on something? I am sure I am not alone in the art of paper shuffling!

I stamped the HA Flowing flowers and Leaves cling stamp in Versamark watermark ink for the background – love the subtly of this. It looked a bit plain, so I added the white dots using a Signo uniball gel pen. I clear embossed dots onto the brown strip to add another element of texture. I also stamped the HA Envelope Pattern onto the hearts.

Supplies:

Stamps: Hero Arts “Flowing Flowers and Leaves” cling stamp (CG146), Hero Arts “Envelope Pattern” Woodblock stamp (S5507), Waltzing Mouse “Teeny Trees” stamp set (for the sentiment and the clear embossed dots on the brown strip)
Ink: Versamark watermark ink
Card: Regal Craft Card (white textured square single fold – cut down to size), Brown Bazzill x 2 tones, white card
Other Supplies: Kaisercraft ‘Stocking’ patterned paper (for thin red dotty strip), Zing clear embossing powder, Zing white embossing powder, heat gun, foam dimensionals, Kaisercraft pearls – snow, Concentric Hearts Cuttlebug die, Cuttlebug, Karl Kraft small heart punch, kitchen twine, Signo uniball white gel pen

That’s all for today. Until next time,

Marion

    I’m very familiar with paper-shuffling lol, it’s not so bad when the result is good. I just can’t stand it when after hours of messing around, the card is still meh!
