Stretch Your Stamps cards

I was really inspired by Laurie Willison’s card in the online card class Online Card Class – Stretch Your Stamps 2, on Day 10. Laurie’s clean and simple design really appealed to me, so I thought I would give it a try. My hubby’s comment was ‘that’s a classy card’, so it has the thumbs up from him too. Thanks for your inspiration Laurie. I used the Paper Smooches Reflections stamp set.

And while I had the same stamp set out, I thought I would do a slightly different version.

Hello | Marion Vagg

The sentiment is white card stock covered with the clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen then I covered the whole thing in Glossy Accents.

  1. Gorgeousness Marion, loved this technique and I really must try it myself (if only I didn’t have to work lol)

  2. Love the first card – the foliage on the letters.

  3. STUNNING! As in S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G! Your husband is right: classy and elegant – the prettiest take on this technique that I’ve seen! I didn’t have time to try this before class ended, but with yours as incentive, doing so is on my list. WOW!!

  4. Both of these are stunning Marion.
