Yep, I said holidays ;) It's about time to start getting ready already!
I get the Weekly Inkling Newsletter from Splitcoaststampers.com and this project came from there. It is a corner bookmark, and the tutorial can be found here. There are tons of great projects in this newsletter, it's a good one!
The stamps are from Gina K, and are from the Lovely Labels set. They fit perfectly with the Nestabilities dies I used to cut these out with, Labels 9. The sentiments are from the Many Wishes set. I used PTI cardstock for the bases to make them sturdy and scraps for the rest.
Since the first set is so clean and crisp, I decided to go with a more vintage, distressed feel for these ones. It uses one of my favorite stamp sets, Through the Trees. I started by putting a few colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks on my craft sheet and then misted them with water, and then inked up the samps. I used 2 different shades of brown for the trunk and a yellow and 2 greens for the leaves. Since the stamps are two seperate images, its not difficult. Then I inked the edges with a blue and a brown ink to soften up the white paper. The sentiment is also in this same set.
These next cards are ones I made awhile back, but never got around to posting. This sunflower stamp was my first time using copics, so it was quite a learning experience! Not to mention a serious pain to cut out, but oh well ;) The round doily shape is from Martha Stewart, and the stamps (the round border and sentiment) are from PTI.
I am not big into flower stamps, but I had to to have this daffodil set when it came out! This is pretty PTI heavy, the stamps, the dies (except the ovals, those are Nesties). I just love their stuff so much, but my wallet? Not really, lol.
I am not sure if I have I posted this one before or not. The background is embossed and inked with Distress Inks, and the flower is colored with copics and cut out. The sentiment is from Hero Ars, but I can't remember where the flower is from.
