Baby Shower Gift Wrap and Hand Made Card

Special Decorating for a Special Occasion

I was inspired by the Stretch Your Stamps 2 Class.
I made the card using the Floral Stamp Builder lessons
and then cut some vinyl with dies and affixed the die cuts to 
this red beach bucket from Michaels Arts and Crafts.

Adding white tulle and pink tissue paper -- voila!
Better than a store bought gift bag if you ask me.

Happy Crafting!

Fierce Card - Stretch Your Stamps 2

Stretch Your Stamps 2

Versions of Stamp Builder Cards.

A great sentiment for a new baby girl card!

I was inspired by one of the card designers and utilizing a Spellbinders scalloped oval die to create an embossed frame.

I used the AveryElle Laurels stamp set, WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals and Strictly Sentiments for the design under the sentiment.
The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Everyday Greetings,
Three ink pads - see supplies below.
The gold ink is so beautiful it is Delicata Gold.

The bottom card was my test card,
I tried the double or drop shadow ink and had to cut a new oval but I decided to photograph it anyway.

I had a really difficult time with my Hero Hues Pigment Ink - Unicorn
It seems to have separated... I will post a video of my experiences with three white inks.

I decided not to keep the Craftwell eBrush Airbrush System. I thought for the cost it would not be a tool that I would use regularly and I will stick to the Copic Air Can solution. The eBrush was inconsistent in its ability to fit my sized markers. I may do an unboxing and demo video if you are interested.
