All About the Sparkle…..

I previously shared a snippet of my cards for my ‘All About the Sparkle’ Stamp-A-Stack class that I held in November but I haven’t been back to share the full cards.

Well here I am.

First up was a card created using the lovely Joyful Christmas stamp set.

This card was inspired by a card from Mary Fish.

Product Playground Part 3

I’m back with my final creation today. For this one I’ve used the Come To Bethlehem stamp set.

I photographed this one at the event. It’s not a great picture due to the reflection coming off the glass but this would be the case regardless.

Once again I’ve used Whisper White cardstock to brayer onto. In real life it makes it almost look like canvas. To get the ‘sand’ shape just right to fit the stamp I stamped the image onto a large Post-It Note and then cut along the bottom edge of the stamp. I think used this as a mask. I used the other piece to mask the sand when brayering the top.  Doing this as a double frame was a little trickier as I didn’t want the Bethlehem part of the image stamped again but I wanted them images to line up so they looked like a long camel train. I’m happy with my end result.

Stamps: Come to Bethlehem, Greetings of the Season
Card: Whisper White
Ink: Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Versamark
