I love to use my Fabriano Medioevalis cards for those extra special occasions, and decided to make a Mother's Day card for my mom. I chose to use the Fancy Pants Pollen Dust stamps, because I love the flourishes. I just can't seem to get a good stamped image with these stamps, even though I'm using the Versa Magic inks. If I use too much pressure, I get that "smashed" image, but if I don't use enough...I get patchy stamping with voids. I decided to go with this card as it is, because I know my mom will love it anyhow. Does anyone have some tips they would like to share? Oh, and I should add that the Prima flowers are from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.
After my frustration with the first card, I decided to make another similar card using my Paper Salon Fancy Flourishes set. I decorated with lots of "bling" (Amuse Creative Candy twinkle stickers-micro dot). I decided to stamp my sentiment, punch it out with my Marvy Uchida Giga Scalloped Circle punch, and do a little paper piercing with my Crafter's Tool Kit. The ribbon is May Arts purchased from StarLitStudio.
These cards measure 4.75 x 4.75
I'm not going to list the full recipes today, but if you have any questions...feel free to ask. Thanks for visiting!!
