Today the Creative Architects from Innovative Stamp Creations will be showcasing two items being released this week.
Ledger (from the Background Series)
Nature Silhouettes III
Lately, have you noticed all the lovely Ledger design paper at your local stamp store? Well, now you can create a ton of lovely backgrounds on your cards and even in a mini book with this lovely Ledger image!
The Creative Architects were challenged to incorporate some of the images from both of these lines on our card. Moreover, Nature Silhouette III bodes well with Nature Silhouette I and II. (All among my favorites!!)
A little tip from Betsy: Use caution, but you can cut apart each of the images on the Hollyhock Shadow stamp and place them on your acrylic mount and arrange to your liking, then stamp away!
Betsy encouraged us to use emboss resist on this card. I used SU white craft ink to stamp the Ledger background stamp on white cardstock. I used detail white embossing powder and heat embossed the image. I then sponged on Pretty in Pink ink, with the result of a rather feminine ledger paper. I then glitzed that panel up with some rhinestones after stamping the 'hey g/f' sentiment on the top line. I put that mid panel on a dry embossed rose red panel that I had created using a Sizzix embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. I then stamped the main image from the Nature's Silhouettes III set on black paper, again using the white craft ink and detail white embossing powder, and then heat embossed it. I used a Marvy corner rounder on that main panel. I then added a bow for the final finishing touch.
I hope you have a bit of time to be dazzled by the work of the rest of the Creative Architects. Here are the links to get you where you need to go.
