Stamping - I love it!
This is my card for this week's Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Week 81. The theme is 'Your Favorite Technique'. My favourite technique is stamping. I have also made a matching notebook to go with the card as a gift.
I begun by stamping all the rose and leaf images. The stamp set I used is 'A rose is a rose' by Stampin' Up. This is one of my favourite stamps sets that I have probably used more than any other. The stamps are two-part, you stamp the light colour first and then using a Stamp-a-ma-jig (stamping positioning tool) you then stamp the dark part of the image.
The ink pad colours I used for the items are all by Stampin'Up. I used Rose Pink, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz. I cut out all the piece and attached them to a card blank. I added faux stitching with a Rich Razzleberry pen. I used Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge for the lettering.
The stamped images and lettering on the notebook cover were created in the same was as the card. I also stamped the rose image on the inside pages of the book. I used my Cinch to bind the book together.
