The Greeting Farm- A Sweet Note

Happy Friday everyone! I up over at The Greeting Farm blog today sharing a card using the, "Our Song" stamp set that was released earlier this month. Here is my card...

I colored my image using Copic Markers after cutting out using the, "Our Song" coordinating Dies. I created the ombre background using three different Tim Holtz Distress inks, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Spun Sugar. I popped my image up using some 3D foam tape after randomly stamping some of the music notes from the same set. You can find this set along with all the others that were released this month over in the TGF shop.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day & Weekend.

SugarPea Designs- The Best Journeys!

Hello, happy Tuesday eveyone. I'm up over at the SugarPea Design Blog .
 Today, I want to share a card with you all using one of my favorite techniques. I love incorporating the use of dies on my stamped images to create a 3D raised effect. 

The 2nd image shown above, shows the 3D raised effect the best. To create this effect I start out by coloring my image, which from the RV There Yet? stamp set. I then took the, Home Sweet Home Sugarcut die and placed it directly onto image and cut out. In order to get the raised effect, I cut out an additional 5 more pieces in order to achieve my layering. Usually I would use the SugarPuff from the SPD store but I'm currently out, so this was a good alternative, it just took a lot more work and time. 

To finish off  this technique, I added a layer of glossy accents on top of diecut. 
I did a little ink blending on the background and finished card off by stamping my sentiment and adding some clear sequins.

Products used: 
RV There Yet? Stamp set & Sugarcuts

Thank you all for taking the time to stop by and check out my project. Have a great day!
