First up I made a card using the Sandy Speckled roller and the extra large star punch - but that card is a DT creation - coming soon, so you'll have to keep your eyes peeled for that.
Onto the two cards I made with the 'Bliss' stamp set. My word, what a faf I had to make the card work out right. I was almost about to call it a day. But I had promised a friend I would make a card or two using this stamp set - plus, the images were perfect for a friends birthday coming up - very her style.
First I am going to show you the mess I made..
Let me tell you, I was less than impressed with the amount of flippin' cardstock I wasted. Gosh. On the right hand side is the destroyed focal point, destroyed by a smudge of glossy accents which I had used in order to apply some German Glass Glitter - that idea went down the drain. Notice the perfectly torn edges on the brown cardstock on the right compared to the left - you can never duplicate stuff like that - so I'm angry. Just as I was finishing up the card with a white line around the main focal point, I drew the line all wonky - and being the perfectionist I am - I just couldn't deal with it. So I had to start again..
Notice the gorgeous flecks of GGG (and the wonky line). I mean that stuff isn't overly expensive, but boy!! is the tub small, that is a little bit of GGG I'll never get back. Tut.
Now, onto the cards I actually ended up making with the stamp set - very CAS, but I think thats all that is needed.
CAS card using the flower stamp from the set on some Bazzill Kraft - using my new SU! Crumb Cake ink pad. Yum. Thats all I've got to say..
I think next time I would like to try and emboss the big flourish (if thats what you'd call it) in white onto some black cardstock - now that would look grand.
Thanks for stopping by today, I'm off to go schedule some posts so I'm not too behind with it all! :) xo
