Whimsical Herringbone

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is another one suing the Whimsical Herringbone stamp set from Altenew. For this one I have used shades of pink orange and purple and the effect is amazing.

It has been dotted with some matching sequins

I can't tell you how much I love this stamp and how useful it is going to be creating those backgrounds with a real difference.

For this one I have used green, blue and purple and then cut the piece out with a heart shape die. This has been added to the card with foam pads.

Three tiny hearts have been cut in bright gold and added to the front and the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.

Use any embossing folder that you have to create the panel for the front and then add the heart to the centre.

Don't waste those precious scrap either. Make use on another card of the tiny bits that are left over.

Here I have cut this piece down to fit an A2 and added another embossed panel to the front.

I have added the stamped strip with foam tape and then cut a thin strip from some left over glitter card to glue along the side.

The word HI has been cut four times in white and once in the glitter card and then stacked together for dimension.

The flowers are from the Ultimate numbers and overlays set and I have added them also with foam pads. The word Hi has ben added to the top and then once again I have added sequins.

  10. Pretty cards, Christina. The background stamp is very useful. Thanks for sharing.
    Stay safe and healthy.

  11. Each card is unique but since each uses the same stamp, it shows how useful it is. I’m assuming you have to color the stamp with markers so you can get each color right. If that’s correct, is it a lot of work or am I missing something in how you do this?

  12. Three very different cards, all beautiful love the colours. Love Anne Owens xx
