Power Pumps & Gifted

Good morning everyone!! I have two cards to share with you today that couldn’t be more different! They both use layering stamps, so I guess they have that in common…lol!!

My first project is a graphic black and white card with a pop of red.


I started by stamping the image from Power Pumps with Caviar Ink and embossing with clear embossing powder. I used Smoky Quartz for the highlight and Valentine Red for the sole, then cut the image with the Coordinating Die. For my background panel, I created my own patterned paper by stamping the jewel in the set with Smoky Quartz and Crystal Pewter Couture Inks. The largest and middle dies from the Double Stitch Rectangle Dies (Lg) were used to cut a panel of black and white cardstock. The sentiment, also from Power Pumps, was stamped with Caviar Ink onto the white panel. The pumps were popped up with foam adhesive and some sequins from the Silver Metallic Sequin Couture Mix add some sparkle.



My second card is a birthday card with a rainbow of colors.


For this one, I used Hollywood Star, Beach Blondie and Cali Blue Inks to stamp the single gifts from the Gifted stamp set and cut them out using the Coordinating Dies. I blended the same inks onto a panel of Bristol paper and cut “birthday” from it using the Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies. “Wishes”, from Special Day Lanterns, was white heat embossed onto a scrap of white paper that I blended Hollywood Star ink onto. For the background, I used the Bare Tones Cling Background stamp with the same three inks, making sure to overlap them a bit. I cut the panel using the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Sm) and adhered it to the front of a white cardbase. Both the gifts and sentiment were adhered using foam adhesive. A few Glass Slippers Round Confetti pieces add a little bling. A clear Wink of Stella pen add a little shimmer to the ribbon and “birthday” letters.



That’s it for me today!! Thanks for stopping by!!
