Card Spotlight: Stamping

For this card project, I wanted to use a couple of new stamp sets I recently acquired. It's a simple card with a bit of bling.

I used an A2 sized piece of smooth white DCWV cardstock. The images and sentiment are stamped using Tsukineko VersaMagic Chalk Pigment Ink in Jumbo Java. The crown stamp is from an Autumn Leaves clear acrylic set called "Gypsy Style" by artist Rhonna Farrar. The "Live With Intention" sentiment is from a limited edition Hampton Arts clear acrylic set entitled "Intention" by artist Marah Johnson. The border stamp I used is from Sassafras Lass and it was stamped with Tsukineko Brilliance Ink in Coffee Bean.



For a bit of bling and visual interest, I used a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen and some Doodlebug Sugar Coating in bronze to highlight a portion of the swirl below the crown. I also used a Sakura Gelly Roll Glitter Pen in Clear to highlight the crown.



As a final touch, I used the same border stamp to stamp the inside of the card.




This was a quick and easy card project that took on a bit more sophistication with the addition of the glitter touches and double border stamping. Don't forget to use your stamps on the insides of your cards--as well as the outsides.

Create--and keep crafting!
