Summer Card Camp 2: Cards #2 & 3



I have two cards to share today that I made for the Summer Card Camp 2 online class that I'm taking.

My first card for Day 2, where I focused on the multi-ink stamping/masking technique. After three tries, I finally succeeded in making a panel I was happy with!

For my multi-ink stamping/masking technique, I used a stamp from Fresh Squeezed Stamp's Subway Series: Summer. (I'm planning on giving this card to a friend that I've been hanging out at the beach with all week while the kids take swimming lessons.) I inked it up in Raspberry Fizz, Limeade Ice, Aqua Mist and Orange Zest on a PTI Half & Half diecut.  I added some PTI flip flop dies and layered everything over some Fancy Pants patterned paper.

By the way, I used the same sketch as my Day 1 card, but I rotated it 180 degrees.


My next card is for today's lesson (Day 3), using Sketch #1.

I stamped my cardstock panel using some stamps from WPlus9's Fresh Cut Flowers. From this panel, I die cut my word (from behind where the banner would go.) I also used the same dimensional die cut technique that I used on my Day 1 card, but this time I used it on my diecut word (a PTI's Wonderful Words die). The stamped sentiment is from PTI's Live Love Life.


I cut my banner using a fold and cut technique that they showed us in today's class from some Prima patterned paper. I diecut some dies for my Fresh Cut Flowers and stamped them using Aqua Mist, Orange Zest, Harvest Gold & Raspberry Fizz.

Thanks for looking!

What stunning cards!! I LOVE how your sentiment came out with the masking technique on the sentiment and the flip flops are super cute.

I like the look of the stitching on the second card with those pretty flowers and that die cut. I think I am going to have to be purchasing that!!
