Pink and Gold, double inking technique


I’m playing tic-tac-toe today, with the Paper Players :


I chose to go vertically : “Ribbon”, “Thank You” and “Any shade of Pink”. Well, it’s rather “many shades of Pink” because I wanted to create an ombre effect 😉 . I have various shades of pink inks but I wanted something very subtle, so I used the double-stamping technique to stretch my inks and get different shades of the same colour.

The lightest shade chevron is stamped with Stampin’up Pink Pirouette, then I double-stamped the second chevron with the same colour (you may want to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig or a stamp positioner to help you stamp exactly on your first image). I repeated the technique with  the third chevron, stamped once with Stampin’up Blushing Bride and the forth, double-stamped to get a darker tone.

I added velum paper and a ribbon, and die-cut a “Thank You” in a gold sheet to add a bit of glamour.

A fun card to make 🙂

Clean and Layered Baby card

Hi there!

I was looking for a specific stamp in the box where I keep my clear stamps and came across a stampset I had never used before, although I’ve had it for years… I totally forgot about my first idea and decided to use this one instead and make a baby card with it, to fit with the “Oh baby” challenge at The Card Concept.

The Card Concept 13

I used the little leaves from the Toga – Doudous et compagnie stampset to create a soft background in grey (Stampin’up Smoky Slate, I love this color). I wanted the bunny to be the focal point so I used a nice and vibrant blue, and stamped a tiny heart in red to add a sparkle of fun :). I created a faux-stitching effect with a silver gel pen and a shadow where the little bunny is supposed to sit with a pencil and toned it off with my fingers.

I’m happy with how this cute bunny card turned out, I definitely will try to use all the stamps of this set, they really deserve a little bit of TLC 😉
