For day 4, we are showcasing the Porch Swing stamp set and Roses stamp set with the coordinating dies.


To make my first card, I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored my images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  Since I didn’t have the dies, I used my precision snips to fussy-cut the images.


I ink-blended a panel of Bristol smooth white card stock using some dye inks from my collection and the Serene Stripes stencil (this stencil is one of my favorites!).  I adhered this piece on an A2 size card base.



The floor and the baseboards were die-cut using a die from my collection and adhered to the card with some liquid glue.  I die-cut the white rectangle frame and foam-mounted this onto the card.  I added the focal image for with some foam adhesive for more dimension.



To finish my card design, I stamped the sentiment on some black card stock and adhered with some foam adhesive.  Lastly, I added the potted cactus from the Cultivated Cacti stamp set.  Here’s another look:



I made my second card extremely simple so this can easily be mass-produced.  I prepped my Neenah solar white card stock with my powder tool to keep my embossing powder from spreading everywhere.  I stamped the image with some Versamark ink a few times.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  I used some mini ink daubers and hybrid inks to color my flowers.  Sometimes, keeping the card clean & simple creates a huge impact in the overall design!  



I die-cut the “thank you” using a die from my collection with some black card stock and vellum, adhering them onto the card with liquid glue.  Here’s a closer look at the beautiful flowers!



I finished my card design by adding some white enamel dots all over the card panel.
