I am super excited to be joining amazing talented design team member Kimberly (you can see her post here)
for a fun collaboration. Two designers, one stamp set.
We chose the Shenanigans
stamp set, which has the best sayings. We chose to do rainbow colours with sequins and I was having so much fun that I made three cards.
So for my first card added a bit of Spun Sugar to the background and then stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onix Black ink.
I used a background die that cut out vertical strips and I used the negative pieces to make the candle sticks. I then did some ink blending with a combination of Distress Oxide and regular Distress ink to create the rainbow and then did some water splatters for texture. I used a leaf die to create the fire on top and ink blended those as well with distress ink. I popped them up with foam tape and added the sequins. I always have the hardest time adding those. You'd think I was performing surgery. LoL!!!
For my second, there were leftovers from the candles and they were just too pretty to through out so I added them to a black background. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then again, did surgery with the sequins.
And for my last card, I had this background sitting on my desk and thought that a more masculine card would work so I stamped the sentiment with Versafine ink and heat embossed it with a black sparkly powder from Ranger. Just because it's a masculine card doesn't mean it can't have a little sparkle so I added a few silver and black gems.
I can't thank Kim enough for thinking of me for this collaboration and to Michelle for being fabulous!
Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
