Good Morning Crafty Friends!
Lisa here, with a bit of stamping inspiration for you….
This beautiful flower and sentiment set is the Flourishes Hydrangea stamp set! Kim has loads of beautiful Flourishes stamp sets in stock! These pretty flowers paired with the Tim Holtz distressed inks (also in stock at The Cutting Garden) whip up a quick and beautiful cards in no time!
If you are unsure about this stamping technique, stay tuned! We love to give classes on all the techniques we use!
I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
I have to admit… I’m a Newbie to this Distress Ink Fad but I an quickly warming up to it!!! Here’s a little inspiration for you….
I heat embossed the lovely Hello Doily stamp on to recollections pink card stock with White embossing powder and then used the Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distress Ink that I snagged at The Cutting Garden to ink around the edges to give it dimension, what a beautiful effect! I hope my picture does it justice!!
I was really pleased with this card but found it to be a bit bumpy and could see that it would be difficult to find an envelope for it as the card measures approx. 5 x 5 so I went ahead and created an envelope that would allow for an embellished card (bumpy and hard to mail) to match!…. have a look at this….
I used my Martha Stewart scoring board to design this envelope to be thick enough to accommodate the pin and raised bow that I used to embellish my card. I decided to add the finishing touch and heat emboss the beautiful flower on to th envelope.
I like to call this taking doily’s to the next level! … I used the Stampin’ Up Hello Doily stamp and topped it off by using the Martha Stewart Vintage Doily Punch Around the Page punch set I picked up at The Cutting Garden.
I hope my project inspires you to find some creative time in your day, it is truly a relaxing and rewarding hobby !
Thanks for stopping by!
