Handmade Cards | Sentiment Stamps | Part 2

Hello! Sharon Traynor is back with her 2nd card making tutorial post today showcasing our gorgeous new sentiment stamps…

Hi! I’m back with my second post of today. Here is another 3 card designs that I came up with yesterday that use some of the soon-to-be-released stamps by Visible Image (you can see the other designs by clicking HERE). These stamps are available on pre-order until 15th February 2020 and they are such fun to use! You’ll be glad to see that this post is much shorter than the other one, and hopefully I’m showing versatility in these cards that I hope will spark some additonal ideas for you.

Let’s start with this striking red card. Honestly, it is SO easy to make if you have some of those inch wide ink cubes.

anniversary card | stamp | verse

First cut a piece of white card slightly smaller than your card blank and stamp your sentiment onto it. Attach it to your work surface with masking tape. Tear a bit of scrap paper and use masking tape to secure it over the top of the piece of white card. Now drag your ink cube from the scap paper onto the white card, reducing the pressure as you get towards the middle of the card. Repeat this all the way down the edge. Now do the same again with a darker ink pad, reducing the pressure a lot earlier.

Before you remove the scrap paper and masking tape, stamp some of the heart images along the red part using your darker ink.

Stamp and heat emboss 3 hearts in gold embossing powder onto gold mirri card and fussy cut them out.

Attach the inked white card to a red card blank (or cut a mat of red card) and then add the golden hearts with 3d foam.

Now for the blue sympathy card.

Cut a white panel again and using a light blue ink and a cloud mask, blend some clouds all over the panel.

Stamp the sentiment into place. The stamp the wings into place using 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation ink so that they get lighter as the move further away from the sentiment.

Mount the panel onto a blue card blank (or onto a blue mat, and then onto a card blank).

Finally The ‘Thank You’ Card

Cut a white panel and doodle a border.

Mask off the border and stamp the ‘Thank You’ into place first, then stamp the heart at various heights across the bottom of the panel.

 Always think about your design and what items you are going to use. Don’t do as I did, I used the wrong type of ink for alcohol markers!!! Luckily I manage to work so that the ink didn’t smudge into the coloured area (I should have used and ink like Memento).

Colour the heart at the top of the ‘thank you’ stalk, then doodle some simple patterns into the remaining hearts. Attach this to a black mat and then add the whole thing to a card blank.
