This detailed look was created with the LACE DYNAMIC TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER #148530 coming Jan . 3rd in the NEW 2019 Occasions Catalog! Before embossing, I dragged the Sea Form Ink Pad across the inside of the folder to add soft color in the impressions!

Country Home Stamp Set

20180927_085222

Country Home Stamp Set #147678 has been a joy for me! It's seasonal and homey! I LOVE the NEW Granny Apple Green Blends Duo #147274  on the olde metal pitcher!! It's a FUN FLASH of color!

20180927_085202

TIP: see the black line behind the pitcher? It "grounds" the image. Without the line, the image "FLOATS!" Amazing what a simple line can do for your image!!

Enjoy Life Stamp Set

20180918_110621

I enjoy creating Sunset/Sunrise cards! "Enjoy Life" Stamp Set #148190 is a lovely silhouette stamp set to use with this FUN technique.

20180918_100214

Here is my process which allows me to reproduce the same card multiple times:

    *Punch or die cut a generous shape in the center of a quarter sheet of scrap cardstock.

    *Lay this template on your cardstock and hold in place. (I just use my fingers.)

    *Using a Sponge Dauber #133773 pounce on an ink pad to collect color, then scrub ink into the opening of the template, using a horizontal motion going beyond the edges of the template.  Blend one color into the next if desired.

    *Mark your colors for use at a later time and keep in the template in your stamp case.

    *Stamp a silhouette in black ink within the window before removing the template.

This is a lovely, thoughtful sentiment! Try sponging a Sunrise/Sunset!
