Well, today I am off to a Taekwondo Black Belt Development Day
with Jonah and Sage, but before I leave,
I just wanted to share the cards that Sage & I made for
First, here's my card:
I started by smooshing some sweet blush and aqua mist inks onto my stamper's select white panel.
I stamped my sentiment (from Bitty Bouquets) and framed it with a Keep It Simple frame die.
I stamped my Bitty Bouquets flowers on their coordinating diecuts and
added some directly onto the background as well.
A couple of buttons adhered with rustic cream button twine finishes it off.
Sage's friend had a birthday this week, which Sage told me about the evening of her birthday.
I suggested she make her a card.
She stamped the little fox (from Mama Elephant's Three Amigos) and watercolored it using
some Terracotta Tile ink pressed onto an acrylic block spritzed with water.
She really loved this technique!
She stamped the "sorry" (also from Three Amigos) along with the "foxy" from PTI's Hey Foxy.
The sentiment along the bottom is from KIS: Belated Birthday.
I helped her to add the shadow with some grey ink spritzed with water to ground him a little.
She wanted to use my Tim Holtz ink blending tool to add some blue for the sky,
but when she saw the card I'd made, she asked if she could try smooshing.
I was hesitant, since this technique has been hit or miss for me, but one thing
I've learned it to add lots of water.
So we inked up the back of my stamp press and spritzed it about five times.
Sage pressed the cardstock into the watered aqua mist ink and voilà!
It turned out really great!
Thanks for looking!
