Let’s Revisit a Couple of Projects
Stepped Up Cards of Parade… So, very often I talk about modifying and stepping up a card with some added layers or embellishments. Well, here are three cards from July that I had on my studio table and I modified slightly. I thought you might find them interesting to see the before and after shots.
Stepped Up Card – Perennial Essence
Here we have the framed card I showcased July 24th. You can see the previous article with this link. After I put the cards together last month, I decided I wanted to add a little more bling to the design. So I stamped the flower images from the set with Petal Pink classic ink onto Petal Pink cardstock, trimmed them out, and added Wink of Stella to give them some sparkle. I think they fill the base of the card very nicely!
Stepped Up Card – Waterfront
Here we have the framed card I showcased July 19th. You can see the previous article with this link. The original card was note sized, so 3 1/2 x 5. But I had an extra palm three image on my table and I decided it would make a great retirement card. So I used the sentiment “Thinking of You” from the Rooted in Nature stamp set to stamp a background. I pulled in a Basic Black backer layer and a Bermuda Bay card base. I also added the “enjoy your retirement” sentiment from the On To Adventure stamp set.
Stepped Up Card – High Tide
Here we have the framed card I showcased July 22nd. You can see the previous article with this link. So often with watercolor sample, I have an extra panel after making the video Show & Tell. So I also had some stray cardstock that coordinated. I added two simple layers of cardstock, Pool Party and Sahara Sand to frame the water colored panel. Then from the Enjoy Life stamp set, I borrowed the sentiment “how beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it“.
