A Mixed Bunch

Mixed Bunch Stamp Set using Masking and Emboss Resist Techniques
The title of today's post has a double meaning: Mixed Bunch!  First, the stamp set is called Mixed Bunch.  And second, the card also shows a "mixed bunch" of different techniques:  Emboss Resist and Masking.

The card front is a single piece of cardstock that was masked to protect the sentiment. The sentiment was stamped first and then protected by placing a "mask" over it. Thats how we got just part of a flower image on the lower half of the card. By the way, the sentiment set is called Perfectly Penned.

The flowers are done with the emboss resist technique.  
  • The card face is a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock. 
  • The flowers were stamped in Versamark and clear embossed
  • The centers of the flowers were colored with a Chocolate Chip marker. 
  • Then the flower area was sponged with Soft Suede ink.

The Ribbon is 2 pieces and really easy to do. One wraps around the card and is adhered to the back. Then a 2nd small piece was looped and adhered to the front using Mini Glue-Dots. And a single Self-Stick Rhinestone for a little bling.  Once the vanilla card piece is finished it was mounted on a Chocolate Chip Card base.

This is one of the cards we did at the August Stamp-a-Stack.  If you're local we'd love to have you join us.  Most events are held at my home in rural Stoughton, although I also do some classes at several local Senior/Community Centers.  Check my Events Calendar to find something that fits your schedule.

I hope to see you at one of these events.
Happy Stamping
