Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I’m sharing a couple cards that made me so happy while making them. My favorite place to be when I was a child was my Grandma’s kitchen. When I saw Studio Katia’s Citrus Trimmings Stamp Set, it took me right back there.
This stamp set contains two long citrus stamps, and five sentiments. for my first card, I used my MISTI to stamp the image onto Crafter’s Companion Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock , and Copic markers to color the citrus and leaves. Then I went back and colored fine details with colored pencils. After coloring, I re-stamped my image in my MISTI with black ink to make the lines crisp again. I made sure to use my My Sweet Petunia’s Bar Magnet (super strong hold!) so my paper did not move. I then picked a fun sentiment, and used the grid sheet in my MISTI to help get the words straight. For the finishing touch, I used Lawn Fawn’s Glue Tube to add a thin strip of gold glitter paper and a strip of striped paper to the card front.
For the second card, I repeated the stamping and coloring process. After stamping the sentiment, I decided to leave the cardfront clean and simple.
I just love this color combination. The cooking apron I wear every night are these exact colors, made from my grandma’s favorite table cloth! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to sign up for Drive By Crafts newsletter to get up-to-date information on new products and fabulous sales!!
