Healing Hugs is another one of my favorite stamp sets. This is also know as an Distinkive stamp. It does all the shading for you. My Stamp Club gals will be making this card tomorrow.
Do you see that awesome Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon? When I made the first card, I just added the ribbon. But the second card I dyed the ribbon. I was in a hurry and I ran it over my ink pad. It didn’t get the coverage I was hoping for, but went with it. I ended up all full of ink and I put it on my card too soon. You need to let it dry, then add it to your card. I covered up my boo boo…..
For class I decided to just dye the ribbon with re-inker. Much better results and less messy.
- grab a baggie
- Gorgeous Grape Re-Inker
- Your Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (I had mind already cut for each card)
Add a few drops of re-inker (depends on how much you are going to color)to your baggie, then a little bit of water, add your ribbon. Squish it around until all the ribbon has re-inker on it. I put a glove on and squished it even more, then squeezed the ribbon and laid it on some paper towels to dry. Easy peasy! I wished I had done this before……
I wanted the center flower to be the star attraction. So I stamped it first. Then I stamped it on a sticky note to use as my mask, (cut just inside the stamped image). Added the mask to the flower I just stamped, inked up my stamp again, stamped OFF, then onto my card overlapping just a bit. Did the same thing to the flower at the bottom. Leaving the mask on, I then stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzazz.
When you pull the mask off, it looks like your leaves and inked off flowers are behind the middle flower.
To finish off my card, I did a little splattering with the lid of my Highland Heather Marker. Before adding the stamped Whisper White piece, I stamped the stem of leaves (I don’t know what to call it…..) with Gorgeous Grape onto the base that is that is Highland Heather. The White panel is placed all the way to the left. Make sure to add your ribbon BEFORE you adhere to your card base. Then stamp your sentiment with Dimensionals. I also stamped the leaves on a small piece of Whisper White and cut out, I added them to the sentiment banner before I stuck it down.
