Here is my version of Lisa Somerville’s Fresh Cuts card, that is on Stamper’s Showcase today. I changed the colors and didn’t use Baroque Motifs on the main card. I can’t tell you the last time I used glossy paper. The technique used on this card is, Re-inker Splash. Which I’ve never done before. You take a clear envelope and cut both sides to open up flat and add several drops of re-inker, not too close together or you muddy the colors. Close the envelope and reopen. Place your stamped image stamp side up, close envelope, open quickly and pour on clear embossing powder over image and heat. I used Cameo Coral and Certainly Celery. I saw a card made with these colors on someone’s blog and thought that they went really well together. And since I hardly ever use Cameo Coral, this was a color combo I had to try. If felt good to stamp again. I think its been over a week since I picked up a stamp. Yikes! I forgot to add that the stamp set I used is, Fresh Cuts.
I’ve not posted in a while. Tracey (my sister) and family have been visiting for a week and not much computer time. We did go through a whole container full of cards and things that she has made for me and my family over the years. It was fun to see the same patterns that we are using today, just different stamp sets. I found this box that I had been saving and thought it would be fun to go through together when she got here. These are just a few of the cards she has sent us over the last 8 years or so.
