now those of you who have asked for an "easier" card using this set...here you go! I'm so glad you have enjoyed my posts..looking at some of my cards I can see where if you are just starting to stamp, they seem intimidating.
now don't think that with this card...it's not!
- have red cardbase ready, cut black mat 4 x 5.25 and adhere to card
- ink stamp using black and stamp onto white cardstock
- cut out image along the outside border of the image (you can cut the border off entirely if you want)
color oval border and the outside border with black marker (this will blend in with the black mat so you dont have to worry about cutting exactly straight)
adhere image to black mat
the poinsettia in the upper right hand corner is colored with Copics R59, R27, and Y26. You don't need copics to color these ... use any red markers, pencils, water colors, etc and gold stickles in the center.
the poinsettia in the bottom corner can be done the exact same way!!! and you will have a BEAUTIFUL card...DONE!
....the sentiment in the center can be anything you want - I used the nestie and lightly sponged around edges. I used red and black markers to ink the sentiment...
TIP: I have full sheets of the poinsettia (from Gina K's "A Year of Flowers" by Melanie) stamped and colored - all ready to cut out and paper piece on a card - which is what I did on the bottom left hand corner of this card. Find YOUR favorite poinsettia and stamp a few sheets, then relax and enjoy coloring them all different colors!!! try stamping them on red cardstock as well...I have them also stamped on purple and light pink cardstock, even a few black that are white embossed!
Hope this helped - email me and let me know...and send me a picture of your card!!!
Have a wonderful week,
