Here's some more samples using new stamps from the upcoming Summer Mini catalogue.
This card uses the new Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder – this is really fabulous for texturing your cards and you can use either side on your card.
The stamp is called All a Flutter and at $8.95 is a real deal!
I stamped the butterflies on cardstock weight vellum and then used the "blind embossing" technique to "pop" them up on the card. The colours uses are Almost Amethyst (I'm really going to miss this colour when it retires in June) and Basic Black.
I cut out one of the vellum butterflies and popped it up in the middle of the squares.
This last swap uses the Elements of Style stamp set and I used a monochromatic colour scheme – in this case Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. The flowers are stamped with Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and again in Very Vanilla ink on Chocolate Chip cardstock.
This card also looks fabulous in black and white and is similar to a card being offered in my Black & White class at Granville Island.
