Another Yummy Valentine
OK this is NOt the card that I have been wanting to post. If I psycho analyze myself, I would discover that I do not want to do all of the photo editing that is going to have to be done to my Fantabulous Card which is why I have not posted in a couple days!! Stinks when you have a great card and cannot capture a decent photo.
I now have a PhotoShop book so I am slowly teaching myself how to edit. Who am I fooling, I am having to teach myself how to open up the darn program!!!! At the moment I cannot figure out what it is I need to do to the photo. There is a satin ribbon that keeps shining like a NEoN Light.
This is another Valentine that I created for a co-worker. The heart stamp was first pressed into Versa Mark and then into the Dark Chocolate ink. I then sprinkled it with clear embossing powder and heat set it. While it was still hot, I again sprinkled it with the powder and heat set that. I did this a total of 3 times to get almost a Filigree Epoxy effect...... I then cut it out and mounted it on foam squares.
I used a fancy corner punch in the corners of the white cs and mounted it onto Pink. I punched a scalloped, square nestability and then dry embossed it with with the textile embossing folder. The inside of the card has a while scalloped square that I stamped with a retired SU stamp called Sketch It. The sentiments are Verve. I have attached photos to share how I piece together clear sentiment stamps to make a sentence or just to line up placement of stamped images. I lay the stamp where and how I want it to appear. I then take my stamping block and press onto them which picks them up onto the block. Perfect placement every time.
