August 2016 Guest Designer: Stephanie Klauck

Hi everyone, it’s Stephanie and I’m back with another card to share using the Grand Bows stamp set from the Ton. These bow stamps amaze me every time I stamp with them. They really look like dimensional 3d bows just by stamping a couple of layers with light and dark ink. I love that just by changing up the colour, you can make them work for lots of different occasions.

I decided to create a birthday card with the bows on this card and used some aqua, green and pink inks to stamp the them. I started off with the largest bows and stamped two of them in aqua. I then stamped two of the medium size in green and one pink one using the smallest bow. I scattered them around the card front and made sure to leave enough space for the sentiment.

I used the birthday sentiment from the Happiest of Peonies stamp set and placed it on the card front as I stamped the bows to make sure I left enough room for it. Once I had all of the bows stamped with both layers, I stamped the sentiment in black ink.

I decided to embellish the bows a bit instead of leaving them completely plain, so I used a white gel pen and added some polka dots to all of the bows. I then used a glitter marker and added sparkle to all of the dark areas of the bows. I finished the card by adhering it to a piece of silver glitter cardstock and then added the whole panel to a white top-folding card base. I also added some clear sequins for a bit of detail and dimension.

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today. I’ll be back next week with one more card to share! 😉
